I think that we should have a Forum pasta party / get-together before the race...

International Talk Like a Pirate Day

As a Bristolian, can I just point out that, from my perspective, every day is talk like a pirate day...


Edinburgh Marathon on TV?

Great Edinburgh Run - shut down the city centre & have a well organised race. Edinburgh Marathon - Get everyone out of the city centre as quickly as possible & a disorganised shambles.

See if you can guess which race portrayed the city in a good light...

Marathon Running - On The Bus?

Posted: 12/10/2011 at 22:33

I've seen runners in the Bristol Half Marathon, which is out & back for the first 7 miles, cross the central reservation & head back the way they've come, knocking off 2-3 miles. In fact, I've probably seen one or two do it every year for the past five years...

Do they not know that there's a chip mat at the turnaround point?

I know someone who swears by the schedules in her 'Running For Women' book & her times are getting progressively quicker...

My Rome Marathon training schedule starts on November 28th - just 12 short weeks since my last Marathon! Personally, I'll be following the RW Ultimate Marathon Sub-3hr schedule again. This will be the third time I've followed it & it's brought my PB down from 3:27:15 to 3:04:16, so, fingers crossed for third time lucky...

Had a good 20-length swim after work today (as a very poor swimmer I'm quite chuffed with that), dug up some beetroot, potatoes, & parsnips from our back garden for tea, then put in a good 4 mile run (including a 6:07 minute mile)  to meet the wife from work & then jogging home alongside her whilst she cycled... Today life has been good to me.

Took a rest day yesterday, so this evening I'm running a nice easy 8 miler at the Club. Have promised to trot around with a friend of mine who is starting to taper for the Snowdon Marathon at the end of this month...

Welcome one & all!!! Suddenly the thread takes on a life of it's own...

Managed to get around 12.5 very wet, windy, & muddy, miles at the Mendip Muddle yesterday, finishing in 37th place with a time of 1:43:04... Not bad considering I had to start walking the uphill sections after mile 7 due to my achilles tendon playing up somewhat...


The plan for this week is to try & take it a bit easier (only a few runs planned & none of them over 8 miles) before heading over to Wales at the weekend for the Cardiff Half Marathon and, hopefully, another sub-90 finishing time.
