Snowdonia Marathon 2015

Panad - Good luck with house move glad I'm not the only one watching little flags on computer screen  even more fun when you know where they are we even had it live for a short time this morning.

Brer - are you going for 200 now then theres no stopping you

I had a fantastic time marshalling at TMW on Saturday me and my friend shouted ourselves hoarse cheering the half peeps up the last hill (and halfway hill for the full) managed a quick hello hug with Lazy Greyhound as well.

Managing to run slowly with walk breaks up to about 5 miles max at the moment and making sure I don't do 2 days in a row.  Was able to add leg exercises back in to my morning workouts for the first time yesterday as well so getting there slowly. 

Been thinking about setting personal challenges once completely up and running again rather than more formal races a friend has set up the Coed y Brenin Grand Slam challenge which is running all the marked trails and works out to 50k and me and Mr C were working out how to break it into stages to work up to it over several months.

LG - hope your dog is ok.  Injury getting there slowly seeing physio in 2 weeks finally.  I can do a couple of miles with lots of walk breaks and very very slowly but it is really hard and aches like mad after but better than doing nothing.  Being so inactive is not good for me at all.

Midges not been too bad so far this year but warn and had rain today so suspect will of hatched specially for Saturday.  Going up later so will let you know how it is.

Other advice for half - save some energy for last hill and take time to enjoy the views

Lazy Greyhound and anyone else at TMW - I'm going to be on the crossroads were you head down after the first loop then come back too after going up The Sting In The Tail so you get to see me twice .  Depending on the midge situation i'll try to wear my Run For Fun t-shirt with my name on it so say hi if you see me or need a hug after coming up sting.

Nooo TRex I thought you'd already entered you could of had my place - oh well too late so if anyone else fancies joining TRex for his official 100th marathon/ultra let me know.

A few small slow run/walks going on here but not a lot really - on the plus side I've discovered weight training  at least the aching arms take my mind off my aching knee lol

T-Rex - It's ok I know it's the right thing to do I'm barely plodding thru 2 - 3 miles at the moment - then again now I've done the deal i'll probably make a miracle recovery

LG - yes TMW is out too I'm going to sort something out with Matt hopefully as I have a hoody attached to my entry I still want.  I will be there though out on the course marshalling somewhere.

We have a sports massage person starting to work out of CyB so I'm trying to get an appointment with her asap seen as I need to wait 2-3 months for the NHS so hopefully fingers crossed I can build gently to Trailffest half in September it would be nice to manage one of the races I'm booked to do

legend777 - just tried to inbox you but it wouldn't let me - I'm pulling out

Sorry guys but even if my leg recovers in the next couple of weeks I'm not going to risk pushing it to marathon level so soon, I also have a place in Run to the Castle Ultra if anyone is interested.

On a happier note spent Saturday running a checkpoint at Ras y Gader had a great day and on Sunday Mr C got another new half pb 2hrs 10 mins  at Chester.  Spectating is blinking hard work  I was exhausted after

SD & Brer well done at your races

T-Rex -  yeah you did it

Brer - wish I could of seen collie womans face

Well on Saturday I tried a 2.25 mile flat (quite hard to do around here) run/walk with lots of extra stops to grab dogs for bikes/other dog walkers panicking etc and it was ok no pain during (though my breathing was atrocious) and ok after plenty of stretching and rolling after.  Went off road for a walk yesterday at CyB (only about 3 miles) and by the end I could feel it pulling a bit so looks like off road and hills still a while off to run.  Going to try the 2.25 miles again tonight but without dogs so hopefully will be able to get a bit more of a rhythym going.

TRex - good luck and enjoy Sunday

LG - still waiting for appointment.  Hoping i'll be able to plod around the TMW half  at least but if not i'll be marshalling so still a part of it all

I took the dogs for a walk last night while Mr C went off for the CyB group run, slightly under estimated the distance my loop was and ended up power walking up the hill to get back in time - actually worked well as I met the first runners as they popped out of Sting In The Tail and by the time they'd all regrouped I was only 1/2 mile off the end.  Of course that was when Mr C passed me and the dogs abandoned mum to run off with dad charming.

Bit achy this morning but no pain so fingers crossed things are on the mend.
