Thought I'd enter this as a birthday challenge! Anyone else running? Any suggestions about the best accommodation or other tips?

Well done booktrunk - you nailed it!

I'm into week 3 now of training and day 32 of my "Dry Marathon" ahead of my HM in Limassol on 10 April. For some unknown reason I thought it would be a good idea not to drink from New Years Eve until the evening after the race - a total of 101 days - not long to go now then!

Was looking for mischief to get up to on my birthday this year and have found a HM in Manchester - not been there before so have booked it as my birthday present! Just got to book the accommodation now - quite excited by it!

Take care

Wow - that's amazing PompeyMatt - that certainly makes sub 4 at MK look doable! Good luck.

Well done booktrunk - sometimes we just have to accept our own limitations and be happy.

Hope it goes well for you and that you remain unbroken

Well done booktrunk - hope that you manage to get back on track. 10 weeks to an ultra - my training plan for the HM in April is 12 weeks! How long is the ultra that you're doing?

Filthy weather out there this morning - walked in to work but didn't have an umbrella. The hooded jacket did its best to keep me dry but it wasn't a good look when I arrived! The forecast is that it should have dried up by the time that I leave to run home so shouldn't be too bad. Still trying to burn off the excess Christmas calories

Thanks booktrunk - I'm still in awe of the goals that you go for. Just happy to be enjoying the running at the moment

Happy New Year booktrunk - hope this one's a good one for you!

I've been keeping a low profile but dipping in every so often to see how you're doing - well done PompeyMatt.

Last year was a good one for me - 3 new PBS - 5k, 10k and 10 miles. This year my first race will be on 10 April when I'm doing the Limassol HM and want to do sub 2 hours. My PB for HM is 2:10 which I set in Bath in 2012. My 10 miles on 28 December was a hilly one and I finished in 1:34:53 and haven't even started training yet for the HM.

Keep healthy and injury free both- look forward to hearing how you're doing
