Snowdonia marathon 2013

Well. Did my first run since Saturday due to picking up a niggle in my calf from running in 18 inches of snow. Went on a club 5 mile tempo. Splits were 5.42, 5.59, 6.10, 6.06, 6.01. Quite pleased considering there was a couple of long gradual hills chucked in. Calf seems ok too. Can't afford an injury with 2 weeks to go untill the last cross country fixture of the season with a good chance of promotion for the club.

brer,- it was a wise decision to cancel Gloucester Marathon. I ran on part of the course this morning and the roads were terrible. Luckily we were heading off road so only ran about a quarter of a mile along the lane. Today was my slowest run ever I think. Trying to run in snow drifts 2 feet deep across boggy fields isn't easy. Great fun though. Took 2 hours to cover just over 12 miles.

Peter. I think your description of running Snowdon or any hilly marathon is spot on.
Club tempo run tonight. Hope the snow holds off

brer. Yeah managed to get out and do just over 8. I'm spoilt for some great runs where I live,right on the edge of the the Cotswolds with some cracking off road runs with plenty of hills to run up and down.
Jason, that's some impressive mileage your clocking up.

Hi Mr 2. Is this your first Snod? If so you'll love it. Yeah plenty of time to crank up the miles yet. The good thing about an autumn marathon is that the bulk of your training is done in the summer, as opposed to a spring mararthon , where you got to get out in the dark cold wet ,windy depressing winter. Oh we'll suppose I better get out there and go for a run now.

Thanks Jason, only 2 xcountry races left for this season so I'll try and make my ripped spikes last. A friend of mine organises Beat the Bore. Never fancied doing it, although its right on my doorstep. Race the Train is a great race. Laudy, how many ran the Bore this year?
Nice gentle 5 mile recovery run for me tonight. Not too cold out neither.

Camlo.it was my own fault. I was trying to get past someone and cut across the path of a runner directly behind me.. Luckily no real damage to me, but my spikes have got a big hole on the back now..
Planned to do 14 miles today. Ended up doing 15.5 with over 1800 feet of ascent. Legs didn't feel too bad after yesterday's xcountry race. Running in the Cotswolds on a frosty morning with great company helps .

Hi Jenf. I wear "Skins" . Not the cheapest on the market, but you get what you pay for when it comes to compression clothing. If I'm doing a long hard run, then I'll wear my recovery skins after I've showered and keep them on all day. I swear by them, but I expect someone else will have a different view.

Club tempo run tonight. 6 miles at 6.15 pace . Just a steady 5 miler tomorrow, then cross country on Saturday with the forecast for snow . GRRRREAT
