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!

Hey, the team are re-congragating...great to see you all back folks

Just back from latest bonkersville, random weekend! Git a last minute transfer form a friend for Giants Head marathon in Dorset. Jumped at it then realised it was Saturday..a long way from Derbyshire and the same weekend as Glastonbury. So,planned route to go east rather than west to get to Dorchester...and then the .......M42 got closed off. Eventually got there at silly o clock having left Derbyshire at 4pm. Anyway, magnificent but utterly brutal off road marathon.  Threw myself into the car to drive up to Cheddar YHA as a stop off for today's marathon in Coventry. Lovely trail marathon in the rain, came 2nd lady. I'm a bit tired now, so if you excuse me I'm going for a pint!

Well hello gang, I have not had much time to pop in and see ya all. Firstly, LG..hope all is well with pooch-I have had the same stuff this week with ours..some infection. Seems to be on the mend though.

Well, the double last week was grim. Did Holly Challenge on Saturday in the rain, did ok first lady but everything soaked and was using same gear for Hardmoors on Sunday as had forgotten spare trainers. Well, to cut a long story was positively hypothermic on the N York moors. Trainers soaked from day before, not fuelled enough, no OMM coat, shorts and it was 2 degrees. I thought it was going to be a DNF, but persevered as it was a long way to walk 12th lady in a pretty grim time.  Next weekend brings on another double;I really hope for better weather.

I suspect you could do with a nice evening on Saturday Trex.

FR, don't worry about a PB just yet. Get that 100 banked

Hello gang, tis a stormy night in Derbyshire. What is normal marathon training? I have no concept of this I was so gutted that FR  was doing a marathon at the weekend, I decided to hold my own event on Saturday- The Brer Rabbit challenge marathon. Pity you didnt all know about it; it was free entry, 27 miles on undulating and hilly trail, shower and food at the end (cheeseburger and chips followed by pavlova) Two marshalls supplying refreshments (Co op and Spar shop assistants) Loads of support on the route;the sheep are very vocal around here. Best of all, I won. Enjoyed the experience so much I decided to hold the event again on Sunday..I won again   By the way, I was the only one doing this so a win was kind of guaranteed!

FR regarding the pacing for Snod, I have never reaaly put any thought into it as the weather can make such a difference to my head. I'm such a skinny hobbit,  I get blown about all over the place so it makes it all so much of a battle if it gets a bit draughty.

Panad, hello x

Facebook for spare places folks. You wont get many on here

After a traumatic week at work last week, I decided to can White Peak on Saturday and just do Windermere. Absolutely no go-go in legs to start with and a few beers the night before didnt help. However, a massive fudge load at  Newby Bridge picked up my spirits. Joggled in at 3.49. 3rd lady in age group-trophy to come tbc.

Legend, quite fancy the JW Ultra myself but diary a bit full at the moment. No doubt Rexy's done it.
