I did this race, too at the weekend! I loved the fact that in the middle of Novembr I could run in short and a short sleeved top, and could feel the sun on my face - a very nice change from grotty England, leaving winter behind for a day! I set a new personal worst time due to tummy problems and wanting to throw up at 27km, after which it was a real struggle to get to the finish, but quitting was never an option I gave myself, especially after all the hard work I had out into training for this! I would love to see more of Spain, maybe do Valencia again, the support coming from the spectators was amazing!
I have been thinking about the Malta marathon, too. I have been to Malta a couple of times and I love the country. My Hubby is half-Maltese. Had no idea the route is so downhilly but it is useful to know. I will be keeping my eyes peeled for the entry opening in October.
My questions is not exactly shoe related but hopefully someone might be able to help! I love the PUMA gym graphic tank top on the cover of the September issue of the Runnersworld magazine, however I was unable to find it online to buy one. Could you tell me if this is not available any more or whether it is so new that it will only be available later for purchase? Thanks a lot.
People who hoot or whistle at me when I am deep in my thoughts or just wanna be left alone. On the other hand, perhaps I should not get worked up, they may be doing this because they find me attractive LOL
I am sure this question has been asked a few times before but I have a very tight timeframe to make a decision so it is quicker to open a new thread for this...
I am looking to purchase a bike through the cycle to work scheme at Halfords, my budget is max. £450. I am looking for a good quality road bike or hybrid bike within this price range. I would be grateful for some top tips and suggestions. What to get, what to avoid in terms of brand and must have’s on the bike.
For example, are Pendleton and Boardman bikes any good?
The key thing for me when it comes to cycling is a smooth ride on a variety of elevations (I don’t mind uphill/downhill) so primarily road, pavement and tarmac. I would be reluctant to cycle on hard core surfaces, mud, forest, rocky roads etc. I want a bike that is suitable for sports/fitness (potentially something I could use if I wanted to enter a duathlon) rather than just a causal ride to work or the local shop.
