Running in Tenerife- Teide specifically

Posted: 03/01/2014 at 11:52

Good morning all,

My husband and I are planning on going on holiday to Tenerife in July and were hoping to do some running- specifically around Teide.

We are hoping to book a hotel near to the national park and hire a car so we can park and run. We are both experienced fell runners and are currently running distances up to 30 miles.

Obviously there are heat and altitude to prepare for and we will be planning routes/kit carefully. Has anyone covered this area? any recommendations for resorts/routes (we don't want a running holiday package, rather go under our own steam)

Many thanks for your help

i'm in, did it last year and year before

What's the best way to incorporate road cycling into half marathon training?

thanks for asking this, i am wondering the same thing...

Having done this event after training 3 months I can tell you it is possible (i did it in 1.54 the first time) have done it a second time as well.

I would try and get off the treadmill and outside as much as possible- it is an undulating route the treadmill will not prepare you for this)

Your 4 miles is a good start, i would just take it steady and build up your mileage. I kept a log of each run so i could track improvements. I can't really help on the footfall issue as its not something i have experience of, defo keep an eye on it...

Perhaps slow down and concentrate on your form? plus you might just be expecting too much..i mean it is your first 4 miles you're bound to ache afterwards, go easy on yourself


Running induced migraine?

Posted: 10/04/2012 at 20:47

i had my first ever migraine after running at the gym. One of the worst experiences of my life, i was sick, fainted, sensitive to light, neck ache and extreme pain for several hours.

Haven't had once since but i must say i was very wary about going to the gym for a while. Saying that been back several times now and might be no connection? but i truly sympathise with fellow sufferers

Hi all,

I've posted in another thread about this. Fancy doing the one day as again, i'm tight and secondly I think for me having a night sleep in between might be a hindrance rather than a help.

I'm fit but only done half marathon events (although i do regularly run further in training)

i really want to do it as i'm from the area and live fairly near by so it just feels 'right' i don't know.. going to decide before the end of september so i can get my head in the game early (if i muster up the courage!)

How quick can you train for first 70miler?

Lynz: i'm not one for compromise with things like this (major flaw i know!). know the wall well but not ran near it, am in a pretty hilly area myself but it would be good to get some practise in. Especially as it is so stunning around there!

Ben: thank you for that, and i completely agree. its good to hear that from someone who was once in my shoes. If i do it, i'm doing it for myself and myself alone and hopefully that will get me through. cos at the end of the day its a long road with just yourself for company
