I`ve not entered yet but I think I will.

Done it 4 times and it is a great race to be fair.

Apols if anyone has posted this already but I love this:-

Pre-marathon Training Plan Workouts

IMO, go steady. You want to start the programme fresh. A base of regular runs and some solid conditioning work (gym, pilates, etc.). Try to run as frequently as you will when the programme commences but without the intensity. Whatever the longest run is for week 1 is, make sure you can do that comfortably before you begin.

Hope you have a good run. My OH is doing the Sunday event and it sounds great.

Sorry not been on for a bit. Good luck for Chester S32 and for Snowdon RE. I`ve heard that that`s a really good race.

I`ve not raced since the Trail Rush and getting rid of niggly injury. Just trying to get back into 5 runs a week at the mo. Might have a pop at a parkrun soon and OH is running the Tissington trail half on Sunday.

I`m thinking of doing Worksop and / or Clowne but I`m unlikely to be in any decent shape. Bit different to last year where I got PBs at 5 distances over about 6 months!  Further ahead Manchester Mara is a thought but not if it clashes with Sheff HM.


hmmm, just checked and SHM is week before Manc.

Brew Dog Punk IPA.

TBH, there isn`t much on that list that represents the best of British.

Best GB brewers are arguably Thornbridge, Magic Rock, Siren and Kernel at the mo.

In my experience (and opinion as P.E. teacher) you can DEFINITELY do too much, especially in terms of playing lots of matches and not training / conditioning / recovering enough.

Personally, doing too much athletics (all  - javelin, sprints, TJ, etc) put too much stress on my body as a growing 13-15 year old. I`m probably still paying for it tbh!

Ditto my brother. Played football to a high standard, sometimes 3 games at a weekend and this never allows you to develop properly.


Oh, and btw, we watch quite a bit of women`s football. I take my girls to see most of Sheffield FC Ladies` matches at Dronfield and, knowing you`re local, give it a go PS!
