Snowdonia Marathon 2015

lol TRex, I'm entered for the full brutal (I did the half last year as a trial run)....and I have supposedly said to mr panad that I'll do the double if I'm still capable when we move over to llanberis....

After my efforts at the slateman this last Sunday though I'm not entirely sure I'll survive the brutal though! It was a tough day at the office, essentially I got cold - the swim was cut to half the distance because of the water temperature - in the head wind on the bike, couldn't warm myself up, felt sick and couldn't bring myself to eat/drink and surprisingly enough ran out of energy running (walking!) up the slate paths, but looking on the bright side, I finished Some serious work to do now though before the snowdon race.

Sorry to hear you've had to pull out Chrissi

JB good to hear some good news about your FIL and your running I was telling mr panad about your village race the other day and how he had no excuse not to run it with it being so close! we took the girls to see ysgol dyffryn conwy just before Easter and it seemed a nice school, our youngest will be going into bl10 in sept (all being well she will do 3 weeks before the summer hols) and our eldest will be going into bl12..

TRex - at least we know you survived your adventures in America, looking forward to the report as always - when is the book coming out?

Chrissi - hope your niggles are sorted soon, fingers crossed for your ultra in june.

Hiya Gang!

I've not been around much since the new year as life has gone a bit pear-shaped, however I think we're in the process of getting back on our feet again Hopefully this will be really kick-started in 9 wks time when we move to Betws-y-Coed as soon as Becci has finished her GCSEs. Going to be nice being a bit closer to the mountains (not that we're far away now ) Of course, got to do something about finding myself a job etc and the girls will have new school so may take a while to settle in, but looking forward to a new start

Sorry to hear about you F-I-L JB, take care!

Congratulations Brer! fantastic achievement, how you are still standing I do not know!

Just back from a gorgeous week at our cottage, got loads of work done, though really we're only just making a start at all the renovations!), caught up with friends and mr panad and I even got some running in - bit of a shock to the legs

Tbh Chrissi, that's kind of one of the reasons why I decided to set myself the challenge, if they was(is) a day that I can't get out then I wasn't going to beat myself up about it, but I was hoping it would give me the shove out of the door that I needed on days when I could go out but was prevaricating..

Well done Chrissi!

January has been going pretty well for me training wise I decided, on a whim, that I was going to try and get out for a run everyday during January, even if it was just a couple of slow miles, just to get myself back into the routine of getting out and tbh if I can manage to spend 15-20 mins 'wasting' time on the internet on any given day then I get get my back-side out the door as well and so far it has worked, there have been several days when all I've done in a gentle plod around the block, but I've ended up with my highest monthly mileage for 3 years and my legs have not been complaining at all - they're obviously waiting for when I decide it's time to put some speed back into the mix as well...

back from a week in the hills and am glad to say that mr panad decided to fire up his mobile internet and check the progress of entries 'just in case', so we have places

good to see you back on here TR42 , noticed your name on the start list and was hoping it was you!

Merry Christmas Everyone

As predicted running has taken a back seat the last couple of weeks, looking forward to ramping it up again in the new year though

We're off away for the new year so hoping you guys don't take all the entries before we're back (though to be honest there's always places being swapped come the end of the summer so I won't be too concerned if we don't get places )

Enjoy any Christmas/New Year runs that are going on - are you doing the liver bird double Brer?

How are you doing Chrissi?

Good luck to those of you doing more mad things this weekend!
