Snowdonia Marathon 2014

first LSR over 11 miles for a long time this morning, ended up with 16 - bit further than I'd planned as it was going well so I added a short loop in at 8 miles, but it was longer than i thought! All was going well until the last half mile when my legs just decided they'd had enough - though I'm nigh on 100% certain that that was psychological as until I got to that point I was feeling pretty strong, yes I was tired, yes it was pretty slow overall but I was expecting that and my pace had been pretty consistent for the whole run. I ached for about an hour after getting in, but kept myself moving about and have felt fine for the rest of the day, so all good here as well

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!

life is playing havoc with the training here - nothing major, just no time! In two minds whether or not I will start the snowdon race next week, but if i do it will be as a training effort in preparation for the half-brutal tri in September (which involves running up and down the mountain)

Need to get back to some serious mileage....time is ticking away and October will soon be here!

Another trip up snowdon today, though I think I probably looked more like I'd been for a swim in the lake as I was going for the hot weather aclimatisation again. Was a good run until I managed to fall, not on the mountain, but back on the flat level road in Llanberis! Nothing major, just a few bruises and a bit of road rash, but Mr panad has been taking the mick out of me ever since 8-/

Well done in the deiniolen 10k last night JB

Good to see you back chimney

yes, mr panad is doing both the snowdon race and this marathon again this year - he will be faster than me up the mountain (unless he has a problem) I *may* still edge it on the marathon...

TR42 isn't doing the snowdon race as far as I know as he forgot to enter in time! I saw him a couple of weeks ago - he was just on his way for a run up moel famau with his new dog

shocked my body into action yesterday with a run up snowdon Hard going (first time to the top since last years race) and also I'm going for the acclimitisation approach in case it's hot again this year, so was uncomfortably hot by the end of it, though to be fair at the top I was glad of the cover as we went early before the cloud lifted.
