This one Jimbob...? Hopefully I'll be there again this year, seeing as they keep refusing to let me actually run the damn race.
I think I was wearing about 20 tops that morning - ran 7 miles there then stood around in the cold for an hour and a half. I swear it's less work to run it!
ahh that was a lovely day. We had a cracking run OO. Spurred on by Nells' lovely smile. Later that day I was elated with my run and drank my own body weight in ale. (Nells please email that photo to me if you can)
Managed 7 miles progressing up through the gears this morning on the commute run which is kind of good for my current fitness. Plus the weather is a cracker at the mo.
Pancake ..... you're right where you need to be. Good luck with the training. ... its a brilliant race and you'll have fun. Loads of advice will come your way in the coming weeks. At this stage I think you need to be used to going out regularly. You can start upping the ante in February. It seems like you have some experience so you should be fine. Like you say, build up the endurance. Those long time on feet runs do the job ... but good to have varied training with some fast runs and some slow runs and other workouts. ... gym, swim etc. Try to peak mileage wise about 4 weeks before the race and then cut it back gradually.
OO54! Didn't you used to be OO53? .... that little turn at Brass Monkey must have got you an age group prize surely you beast man you? Yes see you down VLM gfa start .... hopefully Nells will be there again? Let me see If I can dig up the photo ... or do you have it Nells?
Oh go on then Nells put me down for Chicago (BABY!)
Aye Eggy that was a quality relaxed run mate. When I came off the last lot of pebbles my legs had nothing more to give. Felt like I was going backwards towards the end along the coast. You and Meadower coasted past like you didn't have a care in the world. Kudos
