Alan - I don't really have a target but assuming i feel better and legs feel ok i will probably run around 1:45. Enough to make it a good run out but nothing too taxing (PB 1:35 so have quite a bit in the tank to run 1:45 quite steadily). It was just an excuse for a weekend away and the climb up the Great Orme and a nice seaside run should be fun
Kirsty - Sorry to hear about the house I hope things turn out for the best whatever that may be! Enjoy Paris you lucky thing!
Big - Congrats with the young one! Great result.
Ive not been on here for a few days, Ive been ill (again!!) with something which has been really frustrating. I'd been out on my LSR last Sunday and just felt rotten, i stopped about 4 or 5 times which is really unlike me and i just felt wiped out. Spent the rest of Sunday, Monday and Tuesday with a cracking headache and felt really weak. Fever in the evenings which has meant not sleeping well. So, again running took a back seat, kept trying to push it with small runs on Tuesday and Wednesday but as soon as i started running i felt drained and my HR went through the roof. Today is the first day i have felt ok so went out for a 7.5k at lunch at about 10s/km slower than my usual easy pace and my HR was good. Hopefully on the road to normality
I have a half this weekend at Conwy, so i better be ready for that! I'm not planning on racing it anyway, just an excuse for a weekend away and fitting in my LSR at the same time
Mc Hilly - Welcome to the madhouse Accomodation is fine. There are plenty of hotels around Salford quays (which is where the start is) and if all those hike the prices plenty of people decide to stay in Altrincham (its on the metro line which goes direct to Old Trafford) where there are a few budget hotels to choose from. Its also on the half way point of the route so if you have family/friends with you its a good place for them to watch and then jump on the met to catch you again at the finish. There's a few locals on the thread already so if you need anything just ask
