I did the Lakes Mountain 42 last weekend - 13 hours out and felt pretty good on it, so fitness definitely going the right way...

National Park Challenge

Posted: 09/04/2014 at 13:01

just contour-counted the route at 2600ft ascent (so quite hilly!)
having said that, I raced a 13.5M/2700ft fell race last October in 2:27, so reckon I could probably race round this Half-Mara route in 2:20, so do it steady in about 2:45, or jog/potter in 3:00

4th June quite possible, will confirm nearer the time...

meanwhile, I will probably go round it myself one day before June, just cos of how great a route it looks to run (though I say so myself!  )

Sub 25 - and beyond!

Akie Wahey! you're a bona fide sub-25-er again

Good to hear that you seem to be on the mend

I might do Mobberley Round The Runway on 24th April - might you be there? (marshaling if not running?)

I've got loads of big off-road stuff planned (main one is this : http://www.10peaks.com/the-lakes/the-route/ ), but am keeping some sneaky speed-work going in parallel so might attempt a 5k later in the year (Sale Sizzler maybe)

The Great Debate - what classes as a race?

Posted: 01/04/2014 at 18:38

there are quite a few LDWA "Challenge" events that don't produce results

they're still a "race" though, as you can race yourself (e.g. a target time, or your course PB from a previous year) or you can race other people that you know

tbh the faster runners usually pool info on t'internet afterwards and attempt to construct the results for themselves

Race PB vs solo time trial

Mr Boat - in what way is the fastest time I've ever run 5k "not really a PB"?

Race PB vs solo time trial

Posted: 26/03/2014 at 17:49

I have no trouble setting PB's in solo time trials
my current 5k PB was one such, and I once set a Half-mara PB solo (since beaten in  a race)
you can pick your own nice flat course, at the time of day you prefer, on a day with good weather, without the hassle of travel/parking/registration etc,  there's no congestion, and you're not dragged along too quick early on by faster runners - I'm amazed anyone ever sets a PB in a race
