Sub 3:30 Stevenage Marathon 2 November

Posted: Yesterday at 20:04

@Stop - The Luton half is the worst organised race that I have ever run. In places so bad that it was actually dangerous. It is the only race I have ever done where I can see no positives

@ Tim - I just googled Stevenage Cylepaths. I was running in the fields last night - the cyclepaths are saved for dark nights!

@Stop..Gaza - I put a link on the other Stevenage thread as there is a display in the library with the route. When there is a decent map published I'll try and ride the route one night to clock the elevation.

Parkrun Hertford

I've read today that there is going to be one starting in 'Panshanger Park' in October. I asume that's the park off Panshanger Lane (which isn't actually called that) between Welwyn and Hertford.

What is with these people?  Just yesterday I had a grinning woman open the car window to shout something at me with two kids giggling away in the back seat.  Needless to say I had my headphones in and didnt hear what was said but I knew they were taking the piss so I replied "Your cars sh!t and your kids are ugly, so f*** off".

The window closed sharply and the car pulled away.


Like attracts like. And lets be hpnest swearing at kids is really not that big or clever is it?

That said I had some lads mouth off at me on Friday night from their car. I just took satisfaction from the fact that i had had a lovely run in the local fields and they were spending their Friday night in a pub in Stevenage! I;ve had this hundreds of times over the years when cycling and try not to retaliate anymore, it's surprising how quickly it can escalate

So without a GPS how are you measuring your pace/distance?

OK.... we wanted to get to know each other...

I didn't know about the sponsership but was planning on doing this if I hadn;t been at a festival. I've done the naked bike ride in London on a Saturday afternoon a few times so this would be a walk in the park!

Keith I think you are spot on. I know that I could keep ticking over in those 6 weeks quite comfortably but pyschologically that feels inadequate.

I'm also aware that assuming doing both without injury, 16 weeks out from Brighton (my big target) I would probably be the fittest I've ever been, as opposed to not doing it and spending 6 weeks after Stevenage partying hard!
