I have signed up for Coniston 14 which is end of March my wife daughters and son in law all running it oooo and my sis in law. Then try to get to the start of VLM. Agree that over cooking when injured not good and yet stamina is needed to do that 26.2 and in the past I have struggled badly from 16 onwards. Stick legs is the issue and probably too tall to be a long distance runner. Time to get some road shoes I guess I only have off road shoes. Just done a bit in the Lakes off road love it. Scafell, YewBarrow and Ilgil all round Wasdale lovely Joss Naylor country. Time to get out there in the dark and stop talking about it.
I am in for the first time in the ballot though I did do a bad charity place at London 4.35 in 2010 and a very sweaty 4.08 in Edinburgh in 2012 when it was so hot most folk died on the course, since I have done a few halves and got better though in the last couple of years I have been injured off and on. So here goes lets try again, love to crack 4 hours and have done a 1.36 half last year. Age and legs against me but here goes. Wish me well!!
Anyone doing this October 2015? Looks a nice run thought the track is narrow in places and if the cyclists are still on it good be tricky, especially if wobbly kids are on it. Cycled down the other day and was surprised how busy it was.......
Well done Seren always nice to get a PB when ever and at any age!
Slow plod out tomorrow for me, (seven I think sounds nice, just ticking over) with the daughter and young bro in the morning looking like it might be dry for abit tomorrow................ Hope all you are running enjoy it. Get well soon Sam.
