Lacking confidence and motivation

Posted: Today at 11:36
Motivation comes from within. Check out the parkruns on Saturdays and start doing them - that should be fun and social for you. Its only 5k.

Cycling day with marathon training advice please

Personally I would ditch the 4 mile recovery run. Put a spin class or a bike ride in there to spin off the long run.

OK, I think we get the message.......

Ta for looking DtS - I know Nirvana pick up from Stockport - so that sounds a quicker option.

I've retired from the race now.

The off roading isnt really technical at all. Theres only a tiny bit where you just have to hang on. Oh and theres a lil hill down to the road - go easy there.

Its a brill event though. One of my faves.

T-shirt printing. Any recommendations?

Are you doing the one day Livvy ?

The off road bits on the bike arent too long. Theres a few miles of canal towpath, some forest tracks and then the muddy bit is only a couple of miles through the forest. I dont think you need great grip on there - but my worry would be punctures. There is a bit of ploughing through some big stones.

I used something like this -

in a 32mm width. They were bombproof.

Does the last yomp still head off up the Ben Nevis Path ? I couldnt stay on my feet coming down the stone steps in the rain in my trail shoes - they were bloody lethal. People were bounding past me and I was like Bambi on ice.

I think trainers would be OK - but not if they're lightweight.
