Did this last year, was promised a PB and got one. Its a great course. Anyone else doing it and anyone got any tips on where to park? last year I left it a bit late and found a space near a church about a mile from the start. Thought it looked familiar as I ran past it on mile 12 and as a result was stuck not being able to move it until 1 o clock! Would like to be a bit better organised this time!
Congrats James - excellent work in just over a month. What would you say your main changes have been?
Thanks for the encouraging replies.
Vicky, I would say that I have been obsessively watching what I eat, particularly anything with sugar. Not eating much in the way of bread, and running more. I have struggled to stay motivated but look at the cake/choc/sweet/biscuit and say to myself "I want to be lighter and able to run faster more than I want this" and it seems to have worked. For me I am getting closer to my weight goal of 12st so its harder than for someone who is just starting to lose weight.
Well I can happily say I am a stone lighter than when I started this thread. Hasn't been easy, I don't eat bread very often and hardly ever have sugary stuff and run 25 -30 miles a week. Can't remember the last time I was 12st 8 but it was probably 30 years ago. Saying that, I had my weekly long run this week and decided to do an 18 miler.... no problem on a fitness level and kept to approx 75% HR, but at 14.5 miles I had to call my bruv to come and pick me up because everything was hurting! sometimes you have to listen to your body!
