Marty74 - I'm fairly certain there will be little running from me on Polly's!
Lowrez - good work on the patches - i'll go with the 2017 Up Run version
Work is being a touch difficult so I can't see me getting too much running this week
hmmm ... I am more worried that we'll finish and will be tempted back to double up to do the down next year..
It's a stupid among of up and down - best get more hills in my runs
Take it easy Seren - there is plenty of time and you'll be grand at Abingdon - years of banked miles in the legs will see you round fine!
I'll let someone more experienced comment on the total ascent - it varies wildly dependant on which source you read! I'm with you though - I am so much better at running downhill.
Fun weekend of running for me - up to Manchester and got in a great fell in the peak district with my brother up and around kinder scout - lovely to do a run so different so my usual runs
