Oh, I posted the other night! Obviously didnt hit submit!
Rexy, ace report matey. You know how to rock n roll my friend. Final countdown to 100, well done.
Good one Chriss, keep smiling girl.
LG, route for Much Wenlock was really straightforward but the hills caught me out a bit. It was a lovely, low key event with loads of free cake at the end. The turn out was poor so no, I dont think it will figure in 100 marathon acceptance.
Chucked in a last minute entry into Huddersfield marathon for tomorrow, last training run before London and far more enjoyable.
Hello Team, IF, how was Sheffield? Bet there was no water shortage this year
Panad, wow things seem to be moving at a pace and big changes ahead. Please find me a job in Betws too
SD, it was a really great day at Worcester and well done matey. I did it last year, cheap as chips and really friendly. I nearly canned it because I have a bad cold cold, done 80 miles of running in the week and got dreaded London coming up. Saw the forecast and just went for a training running. Howvever, all went well timing-wise except for having to deal with a girl who had collapsed so was well happy with 3.37. Felt good at the end so bodes well for that REAL MARATHON ..HO, HO, HO...ONLY JOKING!!
C'mon then Mr Rex, full report required..and are we still on target for Stroud Celebration?
Ouch Chrissi, have you had a look at your trainers recently? It may be a case of they are dying without you realising it. Other than that, try calf stretches which my physio recommends-lie on back with leg upwards. Have a towel around your foot to act as a kind of sling then push against it whilst moving leg to side. Bit difficult to describe really!
Cheers LG, I did Much Wenlock last year..blimey, that caught me out well and truly! Some cracking hills!
Well hello gang, I don't know what has happened to the last 2 weeks. It has been manic! Hope all had a splendid Easter; John Bach that may seem inappropriate and I sincerely feel for your family yet again, take care my friend.
The official 100th happened in hellish conditions at the Port of Dover Race Festival. I really thought it would be an anti-climax given that I'd done the 100 unofficially, but the fabulous RD and Team made sure I was made to feel special. I had dark moments at mile 6 when my little 7 stone body struggled against the 50 mile gusts of wind. At mile 19, on the pier, an angler had to grab me to prevent me ending up in the Channel. All in all, a very memorable day-a presentation of shirt and a lovely engraved plaque, champers, bling for coming second-yeh
Back home, then on to an ultramarathon which was fabulous. No pressure to complete a number, came first and got lovely prize. Then on to Scarboro for jollies with my little family and just some superb coastal running and fish n chips. Home, reality check-work-then this weekend I'm supposed to be doing 2 marathons but am feeling slightly knackered so may have to cut back to one!
Well done FR, we must have met at some point at Enigma.
