LG - i'm in the Winter half and the full in June. I attempted the full the first year and had to pull out at about 18 miles as i'd been throwing up the whole way wimped and did the half last year, then was supposed to do the full this year but dropped back to the half, so fingers crossed there'll be no mishaps next year and i'll make it to and through everything i want to do . Also hoping to get a place in the Night trail so i'm going to be very busy entering races come 1st Jan.
If anyone's close enough Matt's going to be doing some night trail runs from November on a Thurdsay i think, they'll probably be some longer daytime runs at the weekend too eventually he was saying.
Enjoy the last week of tapering everyone, at least those of you that are
Trying to persuade Mr C that popping over to support will be fun and he's already resigned himself to the fact i'll be trying to make the start line again next year - in fact he says next year he'll be kicking me out the door training and to the start line no matter what cos he can't cope with the sulking thats going on at the moment
Brer - well done at Yorkshire should we be lloking out for you at the front next week ??
Loving having a trail running shop on doorstep haven't got my new shoos yet (waiting for Mr C's year end bonus) but did indulge in new headtorches at the weekend so no excuses to skip training this winter
Brer - another good result there just don;t know how you keep churning them out
Panad - thats pants real scumbags about hope you can get something back on insurance
Well i plodded around a 12.5 mile trail run yesterday thinking that it should of been my last long run before SNOD but it kind of confirmed that i did the right thing pulling out as i only just made it and couldn;t even summon the energy to do the extra 1/2 needed for my 13 target once back to the car. Back to the Dr's tonight for another appointment to try to get to the bottom of whats going on but not holding out much hope for anything other than a well it;s not serious just got to get on with it verdict.
