Hiya guys! 

I have not been logged on for sooooo long hope everyone is well looks like lots of running going on  

so since I last came on I have somehow been talked into doing the snowdon marathon end of October had a friend at running clubs place transferred to me!!!!! Never done a marathon in my life and so far my longest mileage is only 14 miles so a long way to go! Sept and oct busy for me, I have cardiff 10 k and Swansea 10k in September then Cardiff half 6th oct and the biggy snowdon othe 26th!!! Everyone thinks I'm slightly mad as i hate hills so now have a place in the hilliest marathon in uk! I feel my goal for this is to complete it in one piece not worried about time as cant compare to any other marathon nearby. 

at tying to up my mileage but so hard to fit iI all in! life gets in the way lol

Speediersal I've entered the cardiff half in October but aiming for one around June I reckon.

Had a nice 5 mile run yesterday afternoon down by the beach in mumbles was lovely but I was running by myself and not done that in ages felt strange without a few of us from club lol!

Hi all,
Apologies been absent on here for weeks. Life just took over .

I completed my first half marathon on the 3rd march and have to say I am we'll and truly hooked o them!! I was over the moon with my first time of 2 hrs 2 mins it's true the buzz of a race carries you that bit quicker.

I also at last have a garmin now whoop whoop my wonderful husband must of been sick of my moaning and big hinting because that is what I got on Mother's Day this year happy mummy.

Am still loving being part of my running club they are so motivational

Hope all of you are injury free and running well ill try catch up on posts on here x

Daveo that's fantastic!!!

Club session last night loved it fab atmosphere but omg we where bitter and we where sleeted on and the icy wind just made us more cheerful really it was such horrid weather nothing else to do but be laughing. Coaches are excellent this club really encouraging never making me feel out my depth

Ended up last night having long Facebook forum chat with several members of the new club I'm at and at the end of it it's planned that a few of us will meet in the last 7 weeks before the half marathon for a long run together on a Saturday to help us all get through it. I've not even met them all yet but SO friendly and all in same boat with training plans.

Track club night tonight speed sessions, needs to be speedy to keep warm I think lol

Thanks Daveo that's made me happy to hear lol. Yes I think I'd be a bit more confident if I can get to 12 miles at least once before the race.

Hi all not been on for couple of days how are the ribs feet calfs?

Did my longest run yesterday 7.68 yesterday hard going by myself have been chatting to people at my new club online tonight and a few have entered the same half as me and they have suggested we meet after club night tommorow to arrange a few of our long runs together can't wait I think that is what I need a running partner for having a chance to finish in a decent time

I have also started twice now a week very short run with my neighbour just back from Having a baby so that's a boost as makes me realise how much I have come on when I'm encouraging her to do the walk run technique

7 weeks till my half gettin a bit too close
