personally, i always do 2 x 10 milers and a 10km in a marathon  (don't get out of bed for anything less)

Blackpool Marathon

Posted: 08/10/2013 at 13:32

i ran blackpool last year. route is a bit dull (2 laps - figure of 8 along by the seafront) - is pretty much pancake flat but at one point you end up running a couple of miles of each lap on the promenade which is concrete (made my legs feel pretty trashed after). having said that i did enjoy it as the weather was ok - could imagine it being absolutely horrendous if it's windy. Don't think you'd have any problems with 2 marathons being 2 months apart (i ran one a month last year after not having done any for over a year) but don't expect to PB in both

Finally I can say I've done a Half Marathon

well done Peter, and you're right, it is addictive. i ran my first half marathon ever in may 2006..... the other weekend completed my first ever Ultra (Ladybower 50) and already looking forward to doing another one

How did everyone get on? Had a great time - thought the course was great (though sure they sneaked a mountain on to that 3rd lap).... Am already thinking about next year......

Leicester Round team relay

sounds like a great idea BD - dread to think how much organising it would take though

i'm not competitve at all either Steve - i tend to go for the longer distance stuff but do the round leicester relay as it's pretty relaxed (my club enters at least 2 teams each year with only one of them trying for trophies). Most clubs are happy to have people who just run for fitness join as well as the competitive types - i used to belong to Desford Striders and they have people ranging from super speedy who want to go eyeballs out to ones who just want to plod round whilst having a chat......

Leicester Round team relay

Hi Steve,
i ran this one yesterday. it's really good fun to do but think it's only open to club runners (you could always email the organisers to check though). it's basically a relay which loosely follows the leicestershire round. each 'leg' is between 5 - 9 miles and you can either run on the road or cross country for most legs (some legs you can't make up your own route due to restrictions). if you're keen to do it it would be worth joining a club - where abouts are you based? there's lots of great clubs for all abilities in leicestershire......

Pacing Advice please

Oh boy, sounds like I'd better get some more hill training done then (northants is not known for its hills).....
