DanA - The only spikes I have are 10 yrs old, so can't really help you. Middle Coro tells me the Adidas XCS6 are the ones to have. BTW I've nearly finished reading "Running Free" by Richard A (a deeply frustrating and annoying experience after "feet in the clouds" which IMO was a really good read)....I see you get a couple of mentions in one of later chapters (you're undoubtedly aware of this already).
Padams - assuming you're running at Stevenage on Sunday?
I'm running a bit, legs don't like it. First long run (35M) to work planned for next week with my training partner...see what this ultra training is like.
Padams - that looks like a great run...! I have no doubt you'll be great at the long distance stuff. I've signed up to do London to Brighton 100k race end May...going to run it with Pieter. Going to do it off the back of marathon training and adding a few runs from home to work (35M)
Middle Coro has been selected to run for Herts at the U13 inter-counties next month. Luckily his race is just before the vet XC championship races which Mrs C and I will run. A family day of XC!
Padams - yes, I'll be there. He is in the U13 race, so off at 12:30....given the horrible weather forecast I might not hang around to see the senior races, pity as they look interesting! Going to be a very high standard! Think I should join Striders 2nd claim next season so I can run at the same events that he does.
Lev - take care of that foot! Sure we'll be passing on the canal a few times more before London!
My London number is 700....in my PB year I had 600, so maybe a good omen
Afternoon....long time no post...guilty of not logging in to RW for the last 6 months.
After a rather hectic last 24 months to say the least, I'm trying to get my running mojo back. Did a HM last Sunday (second race since 26/4) and managed to run a minute slower than my London split...oh dear! Once a runner....
Anyway I've got my number for London (will be 10th year in a row) and also signed up for some 100km offroad event a month later, I'll see if that does the trick.
Oldest coro was doing some running before gone off to uni, middle coro is turning into a good 800m runner (can be seen running around Padams's track) and youngest is just starting...and mrsC is also running quite a bit and racing. so you can imagine how many trainers we have in the house Hoping to run NY next year with mrsC as will be 10 yrs since running it on our honeymoon, but guess childcare issues may stop that.
So impressed by the continued exploits of the folks on here. It is so good seeing how some of the long time posters seems to be getting ever better....PP (becoming another fred international athlete!), Jools, Padams...inspirational stuff.
