Brer, well done on another prize. Look forward to seeing you on the telly this Sunday overtaking Paula on the Mall Have fun at THE marathon - as all non runners refer to it.
Chrissi, my advice (for what it is worth) would be to focus on getting up to half marathon distance so you can complete the Chester half comfortably. If all goes well start to build up you long runs. Knowing how hard TMW is I would perhaps drop down to the half - no shame in that. Try to get a couple of long runs in between the two half marathons. You then have two months to build up to the Race to the Castle Ultra. We runners are often guilty of trying to do too much too soon (I know I do) so I think a gradual build up each week with the two half marathons as your immediate targets. Get through those first and you will know where you are with the ultra.
JB - glad to hear that things are improving with your father in law and your injury.
TR - welcome back from the US of A. That race sounds like a absolute nightmare on so many levels. Don't think I will be signing up for it any time soon. Fair play for finishing as I think I may have given up before I even got to the start! Look forward to hearing the rest of the tale.
IF - congrats on the PB
SD and Brer - well done on your Worcester runs. Feel a bit bad missing it as it is my local marathon. On the subject of Wenlock how did you guys find route navigation? I heard it was well marked/marshalled but I am prone to getting lost! Looks like it may not be a counter to the 100 club due to the expected low numbers but good prep for the Trail Marathon Wales.
Chrissi - hope that injury is finally on the mend. Still plenty of time to get the training in for the slog round CYB in June.
Panad - hope all is going well ahead of the move. What a beautiful place to be setting up home in.
