Great Welsh Marathon

This is a very friendly ,welcoming Marathon ( Hey Malcs how's it going ?) the good points are its flat , water stations are good, nice place , nice location , you get a trophy and a medal !!! I really liked it (came over from Belfast), I ran with a friend who pulled out after mile 8, if I was a 1st timer I don't think I would run this marathon for reasons of little crowd support and as its a figure of 8 course you do 2 laps of course and leave / pass the finish line 5 times which mentally is very tough , as Malc says the weather is interesting , last year the inland run would have melted you but on the return out the coastal path it would have froze the balls off you (excuse me), I would still recommend a small handheld water bottle just because I'm a freak, all you guys who are hardy Marathon runners and looking a PB this is the place for you and you will be met by a fine bunch of Welsh Distance runners , good luck

Using a treadmill for hill training

As above , during the bad snow 2 years ago I did a 16 mile training run on a treadmill, my god that's not time I'll get back, what about hill repeats somewhere local, I live on a hillside so just run up and down the street, but it also can be dull, agree with Nayan if it's trail get on the trail

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas (N.I) , wet and freezing 

Alwyn, it was pure luxury and I loved it , the fact that my wife organised it with my children under my nose including delivering my clothes to the Merchant was hilarious, she is so not the sneaky person ,so was delighted with her little piece of espionage , and so was I

Haha , Alwyn don't worry ive been called worse, Gaby and I were out seeing Michael Buble and I was surprised by an overnight stay at The Merchant, so nothing would have bothered me last night

Mags, I'd love to run the Christmas Day Parkrun but with 5 children (and one who had to be told there's no Santa as he's now in "big" school) it seems unlikely ????

Leslie , you are speaking to the Grande Dame of Parkrun in Mags , and to be fair she's the Grande Dame of most runs I do,  when you line up at Parkrun you can see and recognise the guys and girls who are using it as a training run, you just know , but the important thing is the 150+ people behind them who have dragged their arse down to the start line, I find it quite humbling and if I don't stop eating mince pies and doing no training , I will need their help
