Stroud Trail Half / Full Marathon

Posted: 11/05/2014 at 19:49

Another good allrunners race is their Rudolph Rampage in December similar terrain and again some hills but the most fun.   Medals are always really good as well.  I probably will do this HM again as I always say won't but still end up entering and really enjoying it.

Hi I did the half route and my Garmin measured 14.24 miles. Beyond tough, love Cotswold allrunners races but wont be doing that again the hills were just to steep even for a local girl used to running in the area.


Women's sizes VS Junior

Posted: 14/04/2014 at 17:27

I buy gel cumulus in juniors. I have always brought the junior size. I pay less than half and still run between 400-450 miles per pair. Just run London in them and the support and cushioning is fine. Personal choice I suppose, I figure that I weight less than some of the young lads that wear the equivalent size.

Long Run on Treadmill

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 16:26

Normally it is fine but my Husband is away on a stag weekend Friday-Monday and my parents away at the same time. Think as others have said I might have to man up and go for it on Saturday night once the kids are in bed otherwise it will mess up my schedule for next week.

Thank you all

Long Run on Treadmill

I am just after some advice, I simply can't get out this weekend for my long run due to the lack of childcare available.  My question is if I do 2 x 1 hour sessions on the treadmill in one day will that be as effective as going out and running one block of 2 hours.  I hate running on the treadmill and 60 minutes is about my limited at anyone time.

Multiple March Half Marathons

Posted: 04/11/2013 at 17:25

I did 2 in March this year and I have just done 3 in 6 weeks and will probably look for a similar target number in March/April time.  The only thing I have found is that a couple of days after my last HM I came down with a stinking cough/cold and have not been able to shift it now for 2 weeks.

I like the short, sharp approach and noticed that they got easier not harder over the 6 week period and I ran better times.

Might do Bath again as I really enjoyed it this year but can't decide on the others yet.

Thanks Brian for the great shot, for once I look like I am sort of enjoying myself. You are a top man.

Bupa Great Birmingham Run 2013

Well done all and thanks for all the pre run advice. The first hill was hard going as i had it in my head that the only hill I would encounter would be at 11 miles. Missed my PB by 5 mins but I think like mrandyyu I was still tired from Cardiff my body knew that I had bristol and cardiff in my legs. I am pretty sure Brian snapped me so can't wait to see. Good day and well done again x
