Hey team, back from White Peak marathon plus other things to do and am knackered! Had a fantastic day, met up with RFR again, such a fab chap Freezing at first and tougher than I remember it but beat last time on it by 10 mins..Garmin time 3:40:58, official time 3:41:07..I'm happy with that given that it's 3rd one in 6 weeks. SD, when brain is functioning, I'll email you the route but it is out of a walking guide book for the area-Welsh Mountain railway walks, that may be more reliable than me trying to recall it. I've looked for the book so that I could scan pages for you but house is currently in disarray! (too much multiple marathoning and not enough wifely duties!)
HI TR41, glad to see you back again matey and that life is getting back to normal. You don't need cash to hoof it up and down those beautiful mountains where you live..the best things in life are free
I live in permanent nutland...marathon on Saturday but it'll be a slow one after the last couple of events!!! Number 6 of 2013, only seven more to go to reach target of 13 in 2013.
SD, are you doing the race up Moel Eilio or just want a good route from Bryn Gloch? I can tell you a cracking route following the Moel Eilio skyline and along up to Snowdon then a route back to Bryn Gloch if you are interested. It isn't quite as gruesome as it sounds
Hey gang-been a busy few days at Brer Towers with work etc so time for a catch-up. Trex-of course you will be pacing the 4hr gang-we have faith in you
RR-I go to Spin twice a week, have done for a year now and use it as substitute for easy run. It is in the hope that it offsets chances of injury; it is a hellish way to spend 45 mins especially as the group I am with are all hardnut triathlon/Ironman competitors. They go at a hell of a rate and I kinda get sucked into their pace, I am literally dripping with sweat at the end and wonder what the hell I'm doing there! However, all my race pbs have occurred since starting it so I reckon it must be working.
Panad-another challenge indeed, well done girl. What sort of bike did you get? My 'new' one is still in the conservatory 2 years on awaiting some sort of action. Must get on it but admit to some sort of fear that I will come a cropper due to my own incompetence rather than some nutter in a car.
