Interested to read your report ORR. Sounds like you had a food run even if the organisation was a bit chaotic. Didn't think about the terrain when I posted about the course before.

Like I said before, I'll be keeping an eye out for this one next year and will do some ankle strengthening exercises beforehand!

HELP! I'm desperate.....

How did it go Topps?

For what it's worth, I started out with trainers 1/2 size bigger than normal shoe size and thought they were fine except that on longer runs (over 10m) I found the tips of my toes were getting a bit sore. Bought the same make in a full size bigger and though they felt huge to start with, I played with the lacing a bit and now they feel fine and I no longer have rubbed toes.

Feeling good after a nice easy sesssion this morning. Particularly enjoyed leading one of our beginners groups on their first off road run. Only 3 miles @ 11m/m but it made me feel really fit! Preceded that with 5.5 miles at marathon pace which was the best run I've had all week.

Feeling good now and with one run, maybe a couple of swims and a massage lined up for this week, I'm as ready as I'm likely to be.

Fingers crossed for all those with niggles and lurgies faced with the go/no go dilemma.

Barbara - sounds like you're good to go.

One Week from Now!

This time next week, if all goes to plan, I should be almost in sight of the finish - from one side or the other.

Had a good session this morning and feeling ready to go.

Final 'long' run...

Mine went well too though not sure it counts as a 'long' run. Did 5.5 at around marathon pace followed by a short break then 3 miles leading one of our beginners groups round their first off roader at about 11m/m.

First bit was infinitely better than my midweek runs last week and the slow be made me feel very fit!

Afternoon all - too many bugs flying around for my liking. Might have to start wearing a gas mask. Take care peeps.

What: about 8.5 total with 5.5m at MPish then a short break followed by 3m with our beginners group at about 11m/m.
Why: just to keep the legs turning. Best run I've had all week and running with the beginners made me feel really good!
Last hard: Thursday
Last easy; rest yesterday.

My midweek runs this week were tough for some reason so today's was just what I needed to give me a bit of a boost.

Bring it on!

I've not gone missing

Good to hear from you Cath and great to know things are looking up. You'll be back to previous fitness levels and beyond in no time.

My Mr was off work for nearly three months a couple of years ago with a majorly prolapsed disc. After about two weeks my sympathy ran out and his pain in the back was a major pain in my neck!!

Take care.

PSFR - yes travelling by train. Haven't checked the timetables yet but looking to leave Sutton around 10ish. Be happy to have some company as long as you dont mind if I start crying if they're playing 'The Trap' at the Expo!

Enough food ?

Posted: 04/04/2003 at 00:14
The only food on the route is anything handed out by spectators. Last year I think people had bananas, orange quarters and countless sweets.
