Dubai Marathon - 23 January 2015

Posted: 13/11/2014 at 16:09

Great medal mate, you can get it engraved with name and time after for about £5-7  dodgy colour Tshirt tho. Can't fault the race, good organisation etc. 

I agree Xmas excess is an issue so I'm working on that now to make a little room. I did it last year, fat and unfit coz I got injured just before Xmas at Portsmouth marathon. Unfinished business In Dubai.

There is a 4k after so if you sneak under 3.30 you could do that as well 

Dubai Marathon - 23 January 2015

Posted: 06/11/2014 at 23:39

I did Dubai last year and going again this year to stay with a mate! It's flat except for 1 hill.... A speed bump! Start was 7am 15/17c by time I finished at 10 it was 27c last hour got hot. No wind and only 4 turns in the whole course. 

Mum fairly brain dead when it comes to running so I actually enjoyed it. Well organised and only 2/3000 in the marathon so lots of space from the gun. If you don't get a fast time here you won't anywhere. Just gotta stay off the choc' sober Xmas or knuckle down jan 1st. 

Venice Marathon 2014

Posted: 28/10/2014 at 23:37

Well done all, I agree great place to visit but seen it now. Marathon was well organised etc but 26.2 into a headwind put me off. It was a mad dive for the line in the end 2.59.56 ???? was hoping to go close or under 2.55 but the wind and last few miles took its toll. 

Few lined up for next year overseas Dubai, little rock, graveyard 100, comrades Reykjavik and hopefully Washington and new York. 

Good of luck all on your travels

Venice Marathon 2014

Hi All, some good runs going on by the sounds of it. Looking forward to Venice now, had a few lung/breathing troubles of late but I'm hoping it will settle down in the next few weeks. Managed a 2.59.49 last wk at Barnstaple, was planning on going for sub 3 but expected a 3.05/10 doin delighted to scrape under it. That's my last long run so all short faster stuff for me now. 

I think we have to download our registration slips from there website soon, they say no slip no run so heads up!

Stay at fit and good luck.

Comrades 2015

Posted: 30/09/2014 at 15:07

phew managed to scrape my A seeding on Sunday, 2.59.49 chuffed to bits with that after a disastrous few months due to over cooking myself since comrades. But if I look back and honest with myself I was cooked way before comrades. Defiantly going to be a more sensible plan this time around I hope. Really want that silver medal and don't want to peak mid April and leave myself shattered for comrades like this year.
