Eat well mamafox and recover well. It's my step daughter that runs with me, my two aren't interested. She wants to do better at her school XC races, she's done about 6 of them now and is always 5th, 6th or 7th!...out of 100ish so doing really well already. They're only 1.2 k.
Scotland based clag? ,very jealous. Amazing place to walk/run/ride. Never done Fort Bill, would love to do Torridon. Have done 3 Alps trips which is the best riding I've ever done, chair lift up & ride down, some epic days out.
My 2 MTB's are 26" also...an Orange 5 for smiles & a Dialled Bikes Hardtail for miles.Think the 27.5 will win out, but would really need to get back into it to justify spending 3k on a new one.
Big_g - what does being a registered dog walker entail ? ,can you pitch up when you want ? I like the sound of 'borrowing' a dog now & then for a long walk but couldn't commit to timings etc.
Takes a lot of restraint to keep the whole run slow, but it does allow you to train 5/6/7 days a week. I'm trying to keep all my runs slow at the moment and just race a parkrun every other week.
Get a feeling I'm going to have a similar battle to SK with going under 23 (sub 20 in your case SK! ). I'm going to go to Princes parkrun on Saturday as it's a faster course.
Xmas Day / NYD parkruns - (maybe possible to do a double on NYD) - http://www.parkrun.org.uk/christmas-compendium/
Next up for me is Santa Dash 7th Dec , then 4 Villages Half mid Jan & Barcelona in March.
