Shades Marathon Training

Just checking out the race photos (stalker alert!), loving the pink socks Iain, can only get away with that if you're quick. SK - seems there is a bloke wearing 221 as well?!, weird (last years number maybe?)

Good reports from you all as well, champs start sounded cushty!

Sorry to hear about the illness Big_G, get yourself signed up to another marathon as you're in good form. Caramel waffle looks good.

Ian5 - I play footy weekly as well & very easy to pick up niggles, I find it's worse if you don't play for a while. Shame about Liverpool marathon, it'll be there next year though.

Great times Iain & sk, makes all the training worthwhile. Are you sure you only run 20m a week training Iain ? ,can't be many who can run sub 3 on that low a mileage.

Jacky - That's a great first marathon to do, well done. When's the next one ?

Volunteering went well, although it was a perfect day for running. The course record got smashed, some guy turned up and ran a 15:07 ! not bad.

Louey / Steve / Caitlin - Well done on Brighton, it's a marathon on my to do list. Very good pacing Louey & shame you just missed out on the sub 4, but there's always another. Fantastic run Steve, you got it spot on. I Like to read all the reports, keep them coming

Shades - Nice medal for the Great Welsh, great time as well. Can you stick me on your list please, White Peak on 21st May & Liverpool on the 29th May.

Excited for you all in London, hope everyone has a great run. Forecast looks good for the runners. Good luck.

1st time Volunteering at parkrun tomorrow! ,a bit nervous

That one worked...

Would have to be low numbers, around 200 max for it to work, quite narrow and a few road crossings, plus as you say it can get busy.

I'd do it as long as it didn't clash with the 4 Villages half.

Weird things happening here! I typed out and posted a full reply, but it's only shown part of it. So hit edit and typed it again, it then took me back to the first page and didn't edit my post.....hmmmm

Can't believe how low your mileage is Iain! , guy at work 'trots' round a half in under 90m on pretty much no training. All that walking must really help though, you probably walk more miles than you run ,all the best for London.

Ian - Lots of good routes all over the Wirral. I'll tend to park up somewhere on the way home from work and explore different areas & always finding new bits. Good offer from Manchester, I'd definitely accept it, just don't use the baggage!, but I'm sure it'll all be fine next year. There's talk of a Wirral Way half in January next year.

May have to listen to that Big_G, cheers.

Felt like I'd run a marathon last night after the Footy just wow. 

Still got the cold, but feel the need for a run, so I'll do a few easy ones this evening I think,  and an easy parkrun in the morning.

Ian - I find it normally takes me 3-4 weeks to get fully over a marathon and just tend to run easy for a month and go on feel. Sometimes the hardest bit is getting going again post marathon.

re the House, it's going to take years!. We've at least moved in & have a makeshift kitchen in place. So much to do at the new place, but the old place still needs emptying, tidying, painting etc. so still lots to do there before it can be let out. Just waiting for planning permission (it's a grade 2 listed) to do a few alterations as well.

With my cold and generally feeling run down, I'll have a cut back week and see if I can get back on it next week.

Ian - Liverpool is a decent marathon, I've not entered this year yet but have done it for the last 2 years. Few more hills than Manchester but nothing bad. It's a week after my White Peak marathon so I'm undecided, certainly wouldn't be racing it. Chester is a better one though and I missed doing it last year, but is a week after Loch ness.

Shades - Good luck in Wales

Mamafox - Hope that knee clears up soon, niggles are so frustrating.

I'm full of cold, so just sticking to shorter easy runs. I feel better for getting out rather than moping about the house despite it's name, the White Peak isn't that hilly. It gradually climbs for the first half then goes flat ish for a bit then apart from one bit, it's downhill. - See here
