Snowdonia Marathon 2015

Posted: Today at 10:42

Run to the Castle, Hardmoors 30 and I cant remember the others. Nothing as tough as this one though! I'm off on my boat now for a month so hope to make significant inroad into back to back 25 milers. Got to be mindful that I dont repeat the injury though

Massive respect for doing that brute on Sunday. I did a marathon on Saturday in glorious sunshine, came 2nd and...injury free. So relieved after a month of injury, cold, work pressure. Hurtled up to digs in Bangor via motorway chaos and looked again at the forecast. Major CBA set in! So, unfortunately I had to have a 3 course roast dinner and a beer to mark the DNS of the event.

Now though, confidence is restored. Whether I can make enough progress after a month of rubbish trainingg to do Hardmoors 60 in September is another matter. What do you think Trex?

Running Eye, having just looked at the latest forecast, I suspect it is a close call regarding cancellation. I reckon it's a case of keep checking fb/website.

FR, I suspect it will be a tad sparse at that time for reasons TRex has given...especially if it has been lashing it down. However, I see our Ents director has now set the venue for the 100 marathon club AKA yet another Snod marathon done veterans gathering. All newcomers very much welcome, we are a very friendly bunch and the beer flows freely  Well, I'm ashamed to admit this but...I've decided to drop to the Half marathon on Sunday in Llanberis. Confidence has taken a smashing with the last injury and this marathon needs total respect especially with the forecast. I'm not up to it so am going to Northampton to do a marathon around a lake on Saturday then travel to Llanberis Saturday evening for Sunday morning's event. I think the Half may be brutal enough to be honest. John Bach, are you doing it?

LG, didnt go to Denz's in the end. Injury much better but a) couldnt find my compass b) decided not to push my luck. Just did 50 miles on my own over Sat/Sun to get some mileage bck in the legs. Well done FR, nearly there now

Well done FR on what must have been a scorcher. I gather Steve Way dnf-ed.  SD, you do find some lovely events, I'm sure you would enjoy Denzil Martin's events 'How Hard Can it Be' is his website.

LG, how did you get on at Stoke? I nearly, nearly went but gave myself a stern talking to. I figured if I did more damage today, that would be the rest os summer out. Aswell, as two next weekend, I have the Snowdon Trail marathon in July, a 30 mile and 60 mile Hardmoors ultra in September plus various other gigs scattered around so really cant afford to be benched at this stage.

Running might be pushing it a bit

Cheers John, I have been wearing compression calf guards all morning and it seems to be working. Was concerned about stress fracture. Will just have to see how it goes, serves me right for being so blase about hammering myself week after week!

Hello all, FR was supposed to be at MK too but have bust my shin during last week's adventure. May make it to Potteries, am going to try a run later to assess.  Panad, Snowdon mountain race?
