Chris - thanks for advice am definitely going to use walk run for a couple of weeks till I'm sure knee is definitely ok (no pain since last weekend so think it was just a bit of overuse from trying to do Insanity at full pelt and ignoring the protests from my legs to slow down a bit)
Was planning on getting out this last week but floored by the worst cold I've had for years Monday on another sign id pushed myself a bit too much I guess.
Mthschick - I'm in awe of anyone who can do a tri let alone a half ironman. Completely agree about marshalls makng or breaking a race especially at the back end of the field.
TRex - yeah finally going to get to meet you - briefly at the start before you run off into the distance
Did have a brief wibble about the cost of entering even my few events but think it's probably as having mild panic because of not running much because of knee issues before WTW then waking up Monday morning with the worst cold i've had for years it completely knocked me for six for a couple of days and it's still hangng on. Guess the extra enforced rest will of been good for my knee though, hoping to try a short run tomorrow.
Brer - I'm sure you've had much more fun than you would on a cruise
Hi All been lurking around for a while now but have finally bitten the bullet and entered my first Ultra yikes.
It's the Run to the Castle by How Hard Can It Be events in August 42 miles on coastal path from Aberdovey to Harlech my welcome e-mail say's it's ideal for a first ultra.
I'm doing Trail Marathon Wales at the end of June (and will hopefully get up to a 24 mile training run before this) so that's 2 months before then thinking of another marathon length run and one of 28-30 and probably 1 or 2 x 20ish runs does this sound like enough ?
Panad - I keep thinking about running every day for a month then I think of reasons I won't be able to go this day or that day. Maybe i'll have a go in the summer when it's light at night.
Brer - Hope Mr B ok
InsideForward - have to question your definition of not doing much ???!!!
SD - 23/1 next year entries in October. Just like June only a bit more mud and not a midgy in sight
LG - I'm doing the full in June
Looked at the Snowdon Trail last night then read the bit about going up the mountain at the end and as I'd just told Mr C I'd never really fancied the Snowdon Race I shut that website down pretty quickly. He quite fancies doing the up and down one but does anyone know how strict they are on the entry rules he's done 3 Caders but because of a mess up on results his name doesn't appear on the 2nd one he did so quite a big gap and half marathons don't seem to count.
