Sussex Obstacle Dash

Ran the first one with someone who has never run before. Great event. Good fun. VVV cold. Course over three day eventing cross country course. A momento of some sort at the end would have been nice as many first timers woild have liked something to remember it by. Will do it again next year.

What did anybody else think?

Talked wife into running a half marathon now!!!!!!!!!!!

Still no FLM photos

I ran London this year as my first marathon. I loved it. The scenery does not matter to me as the crowds were FANTASTIC!!!!
I am probably fortunate as I live in West Sussex and run past herds of deer, pheasants, badgers & foxes pretty much every time I run if I choose.
If the route is that boring in London there are plenty of other more scenic marathons to run.
My guess - London can't be too bad if you want to run it next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So who's back in Training?

Played 18 holes of golf tonight. Was fine except I couldn't squat to look at putts - that's my excuse for hitting 98!!!!!!!!!
Really looking forward\to running again on Monday / Tuesday - I have my 9 year old twins for the weekend - that should loosen me up!

Drove back to Horsham after the race last night. Took over five minutes to get out of the car when we got home - G/F found it very funny!!!!!!! Took today as a day off and went swimming so now even more aches!!!

Life after FLM

If you want to do a half and live in West Sussex (as do I) why nit do the Barns Green half? Not the easiest, but it has to be one of the most picturesque

Stretching thought

Maybe I'm being anal, but I see stretching as perpapration for the next session, not as a cure for what I have just done.

I used to play cricket to a reasonably high standard - but now run!!! - and my coach used to say that stretching at the end of the day, or training session, or game was the start of the next training session. I use this thought when I get back from a run and think I'm too knackered to stretch.

I have probably taken this to an extreme whereby I feel that stretching afyter any run is, in fact, preparation for the next.

Am I talking rubbish?

Training Schedule

Kev K,
I agree with you - why do they feel the need to charge.
This is my first FLM, and need all the advice that I can get. Currently running 5 times a week - 2 X easy sessions, 2 X harder sessions with club and a longer session at the weekend. I hope that the schedules in RW are accurate as the 4.30 - 5.00 schedule seems lighter than expected. What do the rest of you think?

Whilst I am here - good luck to all of you in your training, and I hope we all enjoy the day.
