Shades Marathon Training

Posted: Yesterday at 12:51
Daughter and I completed our 10th park run today. She gave it her all in difficult conditions under foot and I am very proud of her she then drove all the way home via the supermarket! She has passed her theory and plans to take practical in new year.
Clag know what you mean lots of people ask if my marathons are as long as London! I did run it last year through the ballot and it was a great experience.

Thanks for accommodation advice
Managed a nice run yesterday and listened to last weeks M Talk 252, excellent interview with Julie Creffield. Inspiring lady. A lot rang true with me about not beating myself up about how fast I run!
Happy running everyone this weekend.

Am on a roll entering races today....Sheffield half and Windermere marathon. I wonder if any one had tips for accommodation for Windermere. Only want to stay the night before and lots of places ask for minimum 2 nights. Thankyou!
Just need to plan a 10k race for Feb/March and I am sorted
Hope everyone else ok.

Thankyou for your kind words everyone. Breathing fine. Seems to be a pulled muscle but did not feel it pulling!

Shades, glad your foot is on the mend.

Mowser you are amazing and showed such determination and courage. Huge well done for finishing.

Emmy what is Foxy double? Sounds hard work.

ADVICE needed please.......scary moment for me this morning. I had only just started my run when I felt a paralysing pain from the centre of my back at bra line outwards to the right. It was so painful I had to walk and found it difficult to breathe deeply. I tried to calm down and kept walking. I walked the rest of the way cutting the distance to about 1.5 miles. I feel ok but still feel the pain in the muscle and it catches me when I try to take a deep breath. I wonder if I have just randomly pulled a muscle that is used for breathing? Thank you!

Shades if ok will email you about training please.

Need to decide if I am going to enter Sheffield half think it is 5 weeks before Windermere. My priority booking time ends on Weds. It is now being organised by Run for All who seem to be good. I wonder if 5 weeks before a marathon is a good time to run a half? Thank you!

Mowser congratulations on your double, great report.
Carless roads sounds wonderful for running Shades
No rain for our run but just raked up leaves in a downpour. Ready for my soup

CONGRATULATIONS SK! So pleased for you.
My daughter and I did our 9th park run. Not sure of our time but chatted a lot and felt strong at the end lots of runners today and quite sociable. Delicious cheese scone in the cafe after then my daughter drove home. No pheasants this time but some idiot overtook us on a roundabout by going over it /wrong way and we caught up with him at the next lights....
