Wow Malcs, really impressed, you're getting park run PBs and also impressive endurance running, great performances over such a range of distance. TR sounds a great event and will be tempted to give it a go next year. Enjoyed my down tow up flow half at the weekend, as I'd hardly run for a few weeks I'd decided to treat it as a long slow training run.... but still pushed myself a bit, did 1'53 without it feeling especially hard ( I know it's not fast, but it doesn't seem so long since doing race your pace in the build up to Paris, and back then maintaining 9 min miles was quite challenging). Inspired me to put in entries for several more events, so will post an updated thread race list in the near future.
Good luck to everyone doing the TR24,, sounds a great but tough event! I'm looking forward to reading the reports. I've done almost no running the past few weeks (but had a great cycling holiday), so although I'm doing a half tomorrow, plan is to treat it as a leisurely long slow run!
No running for me for 2 weeks as on cycling holiday (Yorkshire of course this week and Italy next), but have fitted the vibram5s into the panniers in case I have energy after the cycling! Have now a couple more events to add to the thread race list.. The Chester marathon on Oct 5th and Commrades on 31st May ( too early to enter, but have booked my travel )
Any females planning on going next year who might be interested in room sharing? I haven't yet checked out the expedia offer Dannirr mentions, but will do so, I'm guessing the price for a single room isn't much different from a twin, so if interested in sharing please msg me
Having been inspired by all the reports in the 2014 forum..... I've gone and done it..... i've booked my flights..... i'm going . Now have just under 1 year to get in shape and get used to some longer distances! Looking forward to seeing several of you at the start line next year!
