Imber (Warminster) Half

There's a map on the ,a href=''> Warminster Running Club site complete with contour lines. Looks like there's a few of longish climbs - gulp. Will definitely be doing it as a training run and saving myself for Reading the following week.

There's a major thread on here somewhere with details of all the forum runners taking part.

Hippo, well done at the Brass Monkey. Just keep up the steady training and you'll be fine at Reading.

Runner's World 15-Mile Training Run, Richmond Park

From the Robin Hood gate turn left and Broomfield Hill car park is on the left at the top of the hill. You may be thinking of the one straight on from RH gate, just up from Pen Ponds.

Well done Barbara, nice to get the long one out of the way isn't it.

Charlielips, if you can't face running up them thar hills, I'm sure walking up them will do just as well in terms of stamina training.

Run went well this morning. Had a bit of a brainwave last night and decided that as I was taking hubby to Heathrow I might as well stop in Richmond Park on the way home and run there and hopefully find someone else running at around my pace. Did first 4.5 pretty much on my own, lots of other runners but all going much too fast for me, then joined up with a lady also training for London who was running my pace so we kept each other company for the next 4.5 miles before our routes separated again. Last 2.5 miles were OK except when I misjudged the depth of a puddle on the track and ended up with my shoes full of water - very refreshing!! The whole route took me 2hrs which surprised me cos it felt like I was running slower than that, so I guess the training is beginning to work.

Also identified a new means of identifying a 10.30m/m pace - my mini-disc player starts jumping if I go faster than that! Still, not a problem cos I only use it if I'm running on my own which I don't do very often.

So, much better than expected and feeling positive. 11 weeks today it'll all be over.

Reading Half Marathon

I remember that last mile from last year - it was only sheer bl@@dy mindedness that kept me going cos I was feeling pretty tired from about 11 miles having gone out too fast. Wont make that mistake again (I hope)

Training Session - Sunday 26th January

Laura - I'm kn@ckered just reading your report! Well done. Didn't manage to get the housework/shopping or ironing done but did walk dogs, take hubby to airport, run, wash and walk dogs again. Feeling a little weary now - should've gone to bed before 1.30 last night.

What - 11.5 miles in 2hrs which surprised me cos it felt like I was going slower than that. Guess the fitness is improving.

Why - building up the miles for FLM
Last hard - Thursday
Last Rest - Saturday

Andrew - finally got around to downloading the new version a couple of days ago. The ability to move, add and remove points makes life much easier. Haven't played with all the features yet but no doubt I'll get to them in time.

Keep up the good work.
