was looking at doing this before signing up for Frankfurt but struggled with the flights - what flights have people managed to get to Valencia - i could not find anything going direct? Maybe i was just looking wrong
got the first 20+ miler in the bag this weekend - 23.4 miles on saturday (3h 10mins). Its always a big psychological barrier that first 20+ mile run in training - hoping to get another 3 or 4 in before the taper starts.
on the subject of hotels etc in case anyone is on the same : flying from Manchester on Lufthansa Friday lunchtime - staying at Holiday Inn Express.
2 hours is a good starting point - my max so far is an 18 mile route which has been done three times now which includes a mile long fourth steepest road in Britain at mile 14 - makes the last few miles fun . Hoping to stop the hills soon and stick to flat 20 mile plus routes soon. Did do a 42 minute 7 miler last night that was fun with one nice hill in the middle so i know the pace is there.
