Just thought I'd join the thread . . . . Third 'Snowdonia' for myself and aiming for 4.45.
Run a few marathons but more of a plodder than a 'speed merchant' . . . . It's the challenge that attracts me and hence why this is my favourite race.
Steady 15 miler this morning , felt good and looking forward to the big day . . . Just those pesky 20 milers to undertake over the next fortnight.
This time last year I was in fine form until I suffered ankle ligament damage around 8 weeks before the event . . . It looked all over but daily swimming /cross training kept my fitness up and (although it was a struggle) , I managed to get myself fit for the race.
