Might Contain Nuts - The Welsh Trail Running Series 2015

Not easy to explain how they have put the extra miles in, but you come back and do part of the big loop again. You are welcome to the miles though! 26 miles are enough for me on that terrain! Make full use of Hunters Inn, it is a great pub!

Hopefully see you at the event?

I ran in road shoes GeeeM and only regretted it a little bit  About 90% is OK for roads shoes but the 10% is pretty slippery and in places where you do not want to be slipping about! Tough call really, if it continues to be wet then trail shoes are a must! I have not done the short loop recently but it is going to be muddy! If I was not doing the Bideford half on Sunday I would love to have joined you 

Hope the weather is kind, if there is anything I can help with let me know, I live a few miles away... but you are welcome to the Minehead and back bit, scenery is amazing though!

Let me know how you get on 

How steady is your pulse?

"SPIES worked out Jihadi John’s identity after he used his student number to download discounted software in Syria, the Sunday Express can reveal."

What a twat... so he has seriously pissed off the most powerful countries in the world that have multi-billion $ intelligence budgets, backed up by multi-billion defence budgets... and he downloads some s**t off the internet using his student number....

So who is going to kill him first? My money is on ISIS

I am certain that off road is the way to go, how disciplined are you? Yesterday when the wind picked up and the hail hit me in the face (and everywhere else  ) Doing another lap would NEVER have happened  But it hit at the furthest (and highest) point away from the start  

The Importance of the 20mile run

Posted: 02/03/2015 at 09:12

You can only do what you can do! You trained, you picked up an injury; move on!

The most useful effect of the 20 miler is finding the right pace, but getting the pace right can be achieved without the long run. You will be surprised how slow you can go in the first half of a marathon and still finish well.

Stick to your plan, don't injure yourself and don't spend time worrying about the difference between 18 and 20 miles! The more you think about it the bigger the problem will become in your mind!

Good luck on the 22nd, hopefully there will be good weather, because I have entered the Reading Half myself!! Doing a few miles before and after the half is good advice though!

What sort of terrain is available local to you?

I am a lucky git and did most of the EnduranceLife Exmoor marathon route yesterday, 20 miles and 1500m of climbing. There is a world of difference between 20 road miles and 20 off road miles! My legs are telling me all about it, nothing like how they would be on the road.

At least try and do some hilly road miles if that is what is available, but training off road is the way to go if you race off road.

Thinking of enhancing your performance?

Supplements, what are they and what do they do to you?
