I'll be watching snowdonia the monk, it's on my doorstep and highly recommended. Very tough but could be very enjoyable if not done at full throttle I would definitely do it again but I'm chasing times at the minute and Abingdon is the week before.
I ran around 17 minutes slower than planned pace and finished with freshish legs. Trained all week fairly hard with no issues. I'd do the same again no problems it's so nice to run a race with no pressure, you take so much more in.
Again I would definitely recommend barca I really enjoyed it maybe that was because the pressure was off, or the position of our hotel or the group of friends I was with but it was a top top race. I can't think of a single downside tbh apart from it's not really a pb course IMO but if you're not using it as an A race then 100% recommended.
How are the legs wenty? Get through unscathed? I had a minor scare but have trained the last two days include a double today.
Don't forget the Garmins have a tolerance of +/- 2.5% which is quite big over the course of a marathon. I always use mile to mile splits however with the metrics this time I did 5k splits which helped break the race up nicely and made it seem a bit shorter. I have crossed to the dark side and bought myself a garmin myself so hopefully I will get on ok with it. Nice easy 5 mile recovery just now and my groin felt fine so here's hoping!
Well done everyone. I really enjoyed this one as with no pressure I could take in the crowds and views more. I paced a clubmate round to a pb in 2:57 and the pace felt nice and easy with no stiff legs after although rushing for the train I jarred my groin so a trip to Physio will hopefully put my mind at rest.
Remind me on the day lol
First run of the day done in tights, base layer, jacket, gloves and hat. I'm hoping the second one will be t shirt and shorts.
Dont forget to trim your toe nails
Safe journey guys hopefully we can meet up over there.
Lol nearly had a nightmare then. Just a nice easy five after yesterday's hard interval session so I put my watch out to get gps and go and get changed as I normally do. The difference this time is it's a nice day so I left the back door open with the dog free to go outside. I come downstairs to find he's gone and chewed the strap. Luckily. He stopped three holes from where the pin goes otherwise it would have been panic central!
