Snowdonia Marathon 2015

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.

T-Rex - Mountain Lions !!! probably a good job you'd come home already

Not sure what I've done really but it's not getting better from taking it easier and more bits of me seem to be getting aches and twinges from trying different things so I'm reluctantly giving up until i've seen a professional.  After a long chat with Mr C realised that it's better giving up on a few goals now than doing some permanent damage.  Still secretly hoping for a miracle though

Brer - well done glad you enjoyed it

T-Rex - hope your ok

Well my easy 4 mile run/walk in CyB flared my calf up again so haven't run since  walked my usual 4 mile road route yesterday with the dogs and by the end of that everything was tight again and making my knee ache.  Tried 30 mins on exercise bike this morning and while it hasn't aggravated my knee it has tightened my calf back up.  So I'm now waiting for a physio appointment and who knows how long that will take so not looking likely i'll make the start line of Chester half now.

Oh well could be worse

SD - not done the full but the half is one of my favourite races fantastic organisation and good course so I'm sure the full is too

Panad - good training

Brer - another great result are we going to see you running with Paula on Sunday ?

Getting a little worried about my little day out now I feel like I'm running out of time with training. Can any of you more experienced peeps help me work out a rough long run plan.  I was happily half fit before I overdid the miles in March and tweeked my calf (by the way been given a stretch that really seems to be helping) my last decent run was mid march 15 miles.  Aiming to run/walk 8-10 this weekend to see how I hold up.  Then I have Chester half 17/5, potentially CyB mara 20/6 (I can take this down to half but I don't want to) and then hopefully a 40 mile bimble (12 hr time limit) 22/8. I obviously don't want to overdo it again and seriously damage my calf but I want to be in good enough shape to survive happily.  Any help very appreciated.

FR - yeah a good result and into single figures countdown
