Hope you all having a good weekend.
60 miles - in awe! Can't even contemplate that sort of mileage.
8m yesterday for me and a very hilly 19 today - felt awful for the last 2 miles - really sore stomach and legs were in bits not a confident finish - better luck next weekend hopefully. I tried just water today with a bit of malt loaf as energy drinks or gels have proved disastrous for me.
What does everyone else do? Last three marathons I just run without anything! But have been pressured by fellow runners into giving fuel during long runs a try.
Hope everyone has had a better time running than me. Kinda hoping for a bit cooler weather for my next few long runs!
Thanks all - great info chimney. Looking forward to it now - i much preferred the white peak event to London because it was off road and less crowded! Legs getting used to more runnjng again this week - triathlon training has been great fun but I am looking forward to some long runs without thinking I have to swim that day too! Chimney - I was petrified of open water at the beginning of the year so entered a tri to get myself over it! Love it now and would rather get in a lake than a pool any day.
Off for a bit of speedwork today in Suffolk before we head back to the hills tomorrow - 19 planned on Sunday!
Hi all - can I join you? Am attempting snowdon for the first time this year. Will be my 4th marathon having done London twice and the white peak but a friend persuaded me this is the one to tackle!
Getting nervous/excited now. Training been a bit up and down as have squeezed my first standard triathlon in this month and a 5 day 340 mile cycling holiday. Starting to get the usual panic about how to let myself recover from that and get the mileage in! (Reassurance needed...)
Would love to hear how everyone else is training - I am a slower runner, getting round will be enough (well that's what I say now!).
Any tips or course hints would be much appreciated. Am in Suffolk this week enjoying a break from the Peak District hills I am used to
I am middle of my training programme for snowden marathon - done 17 miles as a long run and 19 due this weekend coming. My issue is that I have just done a 6 day cycling hol with hubby (360 miles) as well as my first standard tri 3 weeks ago and am not surprisingly quite tired. Was due to do 13 yesterday but just did 4, due to do 4,8,4 mid week but am wondering if I would be better resting til the long one Sunday? Will the cycling have kept me fit enough?? New to this cross training lark and think I have been bit too ambitious trying to do triathlon, cycling and marathon! Any ideas or advice welcome C
