New half marathon PB yesterday in a small inter-club championship race. 18 miler planned for later this week which will have a long incline from mile 10-14. Good luck to everyone with the crazy exploits.
Big mileage tonight.. a one mile race! The 'Murder Mile'. It does ascend 670 feet in that mile though. The course record is 8:11 and pretty sure that's by someone who is a sub 5 minute on the flat runner. For the non-elite it's suggested most will take at least twice as long as their fastest flat mile time.
Yes, that 100 route is impressive. It passes within a mile of my house and I've ran the route from mile 18 to about 27 which makes up the first major climb.. there's about 10 more big climbs after that though looking at the elevation graph.
Tempted to sign up for a marathon to do one of my 42K training runs. Can't imagine doing that sort of distance and it not officially counting towards how many marathons I've done. I am a bit event / race obsessed though. Would have to make sure I didn't get carried away and just plod round.
It's not at midnight, but the Nos Galan races in Mountain Ash, South Wales are on the evening of New Years Eve and normally sell out every year. Kids race, Elite Race, Fireworks and then the main 5k fun run to finish.
