Fell asleep with the pup well before midnight but expecting to have to get up with him at midnight because of the fireworks so wasn't too worried.  Woke up after 9am race full

Will probably try to get a place later in the year - need to survive Run To The Castle in August first

Hi everyone

Just popping in to wish you all well for Saturday especially TRex on the double (I have a couple of mad friends doing it as well but I'm sure they are setting out before 5am so you may have plenty of company out there).

Not definite yet but I feel I may be back next year I want to complete all the races I had to cancel this year and last due to injury last year an illness this year.  I may even start the thread again who knows.

Anyhow have fun

Chrissi x

Hello lovelies just thought I'd pop in and see how the annual SNOD madness was building - well I see.

I'm running again but even slower than before. Did a really tough trail half last Saturday and enjoyed myself so much I'm doing a night trail this Saturday  time limit rather than distance on this though so I can plod around gently and just see how far I get.

Then i'll be spending the winter slowly building the strength back in my legs ready for the gentle build to TMW - I'm going to finally crack that beauty next year.

Enjoy your taper madness xxx

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.
