Hello team, hope we are all amking the best of this superb weather! Looks grim for London on Sunday, but Snodders folks can withstand southern rubbish Not looking for a great race time as Huddersfield has well and truly smashed my legs, so just going for a jolly.
Chrissi, agree with LG. You can only go as far as your injuries will let you.
SD, I've done Chester twice and it is very slick blah, blah..but getting a bit expensive and it all felt a bit competitive. Ok if you are after a PB etc. Last year, I opted for Mablethorpe instead and it was fantastic. Low key, loads of support etc however it was a sunny day
Oh, I posted the other night! Obviously didnt hit submit!
Rexy, ace report matey. You know how to rock n roll my friend. Final countdown to 100, well done.
Good one Chriss, keep smiling girl.
LG, route for Much Wenlock was really straightforward but the hills caught me out a bit. It was a lovely, low key event with loads of free cake at the end. The turn out was poor so no, I dont think it will figure in 100 marathon acceptance.
Chucked in a last minute entry into Huddersfield marathon for tomorrow, last training run before London and far more enjoyable.
Hello Team, IF, how was Sheffield? Bet there was no water shortage this year
Panad, wow things seem to be moving at a pace and big changes ahead. Please find me a job in Betws too
SD, it was a really great day at Worcester and well done matey. I did it last year, cheap as chips and really friendly. I nearly canned it because I have a bad cold cold, done 80 miles of running in the week and got dreaded London coming up. Saw the forecast and just went for a training running. Howvever, all went well timing-wise except for having to deal with a girl who had collapsed so was well happy with 3.37. Felt good at the end so bodes well for that REAL MARATHON ..HO, HO, HO...ONLY JOKING!!
C'mon then Mr Rex, full report required..and are we still on target for Stroud Celebration?
Ouch Chrissi, have you had a look at your trainers recently? It may be a case of they are dying without you realising it. Other than that, try calf stretches which my physio recommends-lie on back with leg upwards. Have a towel around your foot to act as a kind of sling then push against it whilst moving leg to side. Bit difficult to describe really!
Cheers LG, I did Much Wenlock last year..blimey, that caught me out well and truly! Some cracking hills!
