Hiya Gang - I'm back in the land of an internet connection!
Brer/Chrissi - yes I did Snowdon Race. Was a bit of a disaster, not sure if it was weather related or not, (it was v humid) but I just had no energy at all and couldn't get into any kind of running rhythm on the way up and ended up walking most of it, but coming down was a bit better and not too bad - How I was feeling on the way up it was a good job they'd shortened the course to clogwyn as I'm not sure I'd have made it to the summit. I don't know if any of you saw the TV coverage but I think I was running a different race, as it was nothing like that bad by the time I was going up - though, don't get me wrong I totally understand why they shortened the race and think it was the sensbile decision as although the weather got better it could so easily have gone the other way.
since then I have actually managed to get myself back into a more regular running routine, and although my mileage is pitifully low still I'm definitely seeing improvements in my general fitness again. I have also been doing plenty of 'cross-training' - clearing the site of where the new extension will go on the cottage that we've bought.
The good weather meant the girls wanted plenty of trips down to llyn padarn to go swimming or kayaking as well so have even fitted in some proper training for this triathlon lark I've got myself into in september!
good to see you back Trex, Jason and Chimney!
