Mowzer - That sounded a very tough race (back a page or two!), & I loved the little twist at the end where you just dropped in the fact it was a double & you did it all over again, only you
Iain - Lucky to get away with the bike incident, that's got broken collar bone/ wrist written all over it. I've been over the bars quite a few times, bit of a hazard when MTB'ing. I wish 6:30's felt easy. Good to see your back running well again.
Mamafox - Well done, that's an amazing time. You worked hard for that & got your rewards. I'm just glad you actually got there without any problems. Looking forward to the full report & would be interested to see your splits.
Shades - 3 eggs ? how were they cooked ? ...hmm I'd need bread/bacon/Sausages with that
1 Star Hygiene ! ,you have to work pretty hard to be that bad.
Running going ok, not really got going again after Snowdon, legs just feel a bit empty but they are slowly coming back. Did 10 last night which felt fine, nice light rain. & 4 this morning.
Want to start building up the miles through December, I have a half in Jan & will look at a Spring Marathon.
Shades - The tracker was really good, I got quite addicted watching the little icons on the map slowly move round the course
It guestimated the time to the next timing mat and then just waited until the runner had checked in and then recalculated for the next one. Timing mats at 10k, half, 30k and finish, would be vgood if they were every mile!
Good luck Big_G, that's a brave decision which obviously feels right to do, so why not.
I'm looking for a Spring Marathon to 'have a go' at. Wrexham (early March) could be ideal as it's quite local. Course doesn't look very inspiring though. Will hopefully do Windermere again as I really enjoyed the course & probably Liverpool.
Only thing booked at the moment is 4 Villages half in Jan, will probably do the Liverpool Santa dash as well.
That's a great time Bojangles, well done. When's the next one
Shades - I had a few friends running Dublin so I had them on the tracker along with you. You overtook my brother in the last few miles (Green cap & wearing Snowdon Tee). Sounds like you had a great weekend.
Mamafox - Hard to make time back when you run it like that!, call it a progression run.
I thought the weather was fine for Snowdon, bit of light rain, hardly any wind and wasn't cold, it sounded worse for Dublin.
I notice that Loch Ness is now 25th September which suits me better, means I can do Chester the week after & Snowdon 4 weeks after that. Perfect.
mowzer - Glad you enjoyed it, it's an addictive one!. I'll be back next year as well. I was thinking of doing the Snowdon trail run next year, looks brutal though, with the ascent of Snowdon near the end. I see you won your age category as well, by over an hour!
Looking forward to the Dublin report from Shades, I've seen my brothers pics and it looked wet.
Another 3 easy for me this morning, legs felt much better, have the usual post marathon lack of power/empty feeling. That'll go after a couple of weeks.
