I am going to 'run' the Liverpool marathon in 4 weeks, just 24 hours after a 28 hour journey back. I think from reading back this thread that T'Dan is also doing that race. I'll be aiming for 4:30 - I'm helping a friend get round in 4:30 -4:45 so pace isn't important. Just as well as true to form I have done zero runs over 13 miles in 18 months.
Well remembered Muddy except that you misremembered as Richard is flying half way round the world to run Liverpool FULL this weekend. I think it might be easier flying all the way round the world and then only running a Half marathon.
Unlucky McF - doesn't sound too bad a run though. Only 5 secs a mile off a PB although 5 mile PBs are normally a bit random anyway due to what I thought was the infrequency of 5 mile races - that is until the last page of posts where there seems to be one every other week in the Midlands.
Good luck Tommy on Sunday. Enjoy your weekend in Edinburgh.
I think Trail running is different to hill/fell running.
Trail running is following a trail so would be along paths whereas I think most fell running, particularly races has no set route, only a requirement to leave the start and arrive at the finish various whatever way points they have agreed - but I've never done it because it looks hard work and the downhill bit looks mental - I stick to the paths. I'm guessing though that if that is how they race then they would train off path too.
