Well 1st post on here so hello everyone!
Looking to do this as my 1st event in about two and half years. Currently struggling on 3 to 4 miles.
So if you see a fat bloke huffing and puffing on the hills give me a shout.
Hang in there!If you can run a mile,you can run a thousand!
Set yourself a realistic goal.Talk about it.Seek advice.Then just go out and do it!!!
With you all the way!!!
You can huff and puff at the back with me
Yes Nam dear, but you did 6+ the other day....you could end up draggin me rather a lot
Er... hun thos were 6 very flat miles with lots of little stops for crossing roads, pedestrian crossings, letting cars past and the steepest hill being Cathays Terrace (>>snort<<), so I reckon these 5 will take me AT LEAST as long if not longer...
I'll huff at the back!!
Woo hoo we can have a "huffing at the back club"
Thanks for the comments.
Done a few events in my time (Corus Wesh runs 2004 & 2005, 2004 Cardiff Half marathon and a couple of inter works things) but sort of forgot about things for the last 2 years. Just getting back into it and finding 3 miles a slog.
I need to just get on with it I know.
Best foot forward etc.
Got my number... 183...
Guess I'm committed now...
Hi Katie.... I'm fine, Barking is too... Praying for nice weather for London... not too hot but no rain... I reckon waterlogged Rio's costume would be quite heavy.
Barking and I did the Cancer Canter on Sunday which didn't go very well for me at all, thanks to my neighbour ringing me out of bed at 3:45am pished as a fart, asking for her spare door key which I keep for her. Then couldn't get back to sleep for ages... then slept in and ran it on no food... it was freezing.... joints sore from all the standing around in the cold, but then overheating at 3k... nightmare...
Next race can only be better...
Oh no sorry to hear that Guess thats why you werent at club tonight? First time back @ Bute Park which was good. How did Barking do? I think we might have a runner for life in our midsts
Wish I was coming on Sunday to support everyone, too late to plan now though. Me and Sarah from club are going to be applying online for next year on Sunday (I think I must be mad!). Hope the weather holds out for everyone, especially Rio.
So Porthkerry is your next? What you got after? I'm doing the Barry 5K, then the Llanelli 10K. Think i'll give this one a miss, got a few niggles at the moment that I dont want to develop.
I dont think I get out of this one that easily.........
I hope you arent referring to me as a "runner" - LMAO
Maybe we should all apply online for FLM - then can do it in 5 years time when finally get in
Never to late to plan to go KJ - I havent ooked tickets or anything yet, but hoping I will manage to get my backside there - if I can work out how the hell I will find my way around London on my tod!
And Nam - it wasnt that bad I think you did great. I would have died by 2km if you werent pacing
What time did you guys do it in?
I'm gonna apply through the ballot and then if I dont get it run for the Alzheimer's Society. The only thing then is as well as the challenge of running 26.2 miles, I have to raise £2000 for them - a feat in itself!
LOL... James Thie flew home in 27:13.... Have you ever seen him run?? He's awesome to watch!!
Last peeps home 67:28 last year.... mmm....
If it's hilly it could well take me 58-60 mins...
I think I put an expected time of 1hr 15 on the entry
PSML... now I'm sure it won't be THAT bad??!!!
Do I need to bring ropes for the hills??
Exactly Nam, plus they usually get the biggest cheer! I'm sure you wont be though. Well if I dont run this one I'll be sure to come cheer you both along, not far from where I am, and Porthkerry Park is where I did my first ever bit of training for RFL - two years ago.
In other news....I have a creaky toe. My Dad (Doctor) says it's probably tendonitis...feels really wierd...ever had it before?
I dont have XC shoes.
COme and plod some coast path
