Rather mild for Snowdon today, it's a tough run but so beautiful with a great crowd and runners. Has to be done at least once I think. Number 4 for me today & finally a red tee! all the races I've done, I've never had a red tee, so was made up with that. Managed to stay slow down the first downhill as I wrecked my quads bombing down there last year, and that really helped. 2:01 halfway, so probably a touch quick but the 2nd half much tougher. Felt OK until 17 ish and then walked the hills and ran where I could.
4:37, a 6 minute course pb and also faster than I did Loch Ness ! Go figure. Legs not too bad at the moment, will see in the morning. I'll be back next year.
Signed up for Liverpool and Chester marathons next year so far. I'll do a trail one somewhere as well, either lakes or Wales probably.
Nice pb there Jugula, looked liked you paced it well but the last few are tough!, you dug deep and did an excellent last mile split, could obviously smell a pb
What rest times on that session Big_g ? , 6k in total, all at sub 20 pace ? how did the 3k effort feel ? I've looked at the p&d plans before, so It will be interesting to see how you get on.
Shades - I need to get organised and enter races early, some good savings to be had.
I've had a slack couple of weeks, partly due to working on the house & partly to feeling knackered!, so calling it a taper for Snowdon. Had a fun 4 miler yesterday morning, just round the local park with the dog, head torch on.
House is currently fully scaffolded to do the roof. So we are trying to paint the outside, big job but getting there. Also all wooden windows, so they all need painting & some big chimneys to do as well. I don't do ladders\heights very well etc so it's been mentally challenging.
Great report Louey, amazingly even splits & well done on the sub 4. I high 5'd the Vicar as well last year!. I'd do York again, lovely course.
Good luck for Parma Big_G, hydrate well and enjoy it.
I've got my Liverpool Marathon entry in already Ian, done all 3 of them so far and not had a good one yet, so it will be beaten next year.
Enjoying being out in the woods in the mornings at the moment, head torch works well and the dog enjoys it. 5 this morning & took a tumble ,tripped over a small stump, no damage and best thing is no-one about to see it at that time.
