I am a running & fitness blogger on www.trainstrongtolivestrong.com. My hubby and I did the Danesfield Dash 10k this weekend. Did anyone else do it? How did you find it? (Feel free to visit my blog to find out how we fared!)
If you could give one piece of advice about running hills for beginners, what would that be?
I am going to go to Manchester for 1 day on business. I would be interested in doing a run somewhere central (in the vicinity of Piccadilly Train Station) - can you recommend a good park/is the Rochdale canal towpath suitable?
I have a dodgy ankle and foot following running a marathon after a month ago. I would be interested in getting some advice about what specialist to see - is it a GP, a physiotherapist or a podiatrist? I have private health insurance.
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.
