Hey,Mr Spoons, well done for setting up a new thread ready for next years half.
After reading your comments about future races,the one Im interested in at the mo is the Wymondham 20.Have entered the GNR,but that's not until September.
Ran the 2.24 mile to club last night,then ran the 1 mile warm-up,managed to complete the 5 sets of 1k efforts with 1 and a half minute recovery in-between,then ran home.By the time I walked indoors I was shattered,absolutley exhausted.I know I did'nt race on Sunday,but that was far too much too soon.I still feel really tired today,lesson learnt me thinks.
Moonlight - the race HQ for the New Years Day 10k and the 20miler is a hall right in the middle of town - less than half a mile from the station, so no problem. Neither race actually finishes at race HQ - both are a little walk away, (in different places) but not very far.
The 10miler in the summer is in a neighbouring village, and you would need a lift from the station...if I do it (and I am sure I will as I came 2nd lady and 1st F40 this year so have a reputation to maintain....ha ha you can tell it was a small field ) then I'd happily give you a lift if you need one.
Wymondham 20 is very good for pre-marathon training. I find it a tough course - done it twice now and both times it was pretty windy. Not without its undulations either - I'd say worse on the legs than Norwich but 20 miles is a long way!
Get well soon Mr Spoons and family
Has anyone entered the Wymondham 20 yet????I read that it is online entry via RunnersWorld only.Have checked the list on RW to enter,but it's not there yet,or I must have missed it.I want to enter asap before I change my mind
Checked last night up the club about the Wymondham 20,entry's don't appear until after Christmas apparently.
Well,congratulating myself today,have now officially hit my mileage target for the year of 800 miles.Well chuffed,considering I only run 3 times a week
How is everyone else getting along???
I got race number 1 for the Wymondham 20 this year, so must have been first online. I don't think I entered until well into January. It was good fun with number 1 - lots of shouts from the spectators!
800 miles is fantastic Mandy! Go for the 1000 next year...
Well done on your 900 + miles Mr Spoons
Does this mean that we now have a race on to see who,if any of us,will claim the Number 1 bib???????
Can't sign up until after crimbo Im afraid
Have come down with a shocker of a bad cold.Tried to go for a small 3 miler run yesterday as it was a beautiful day,I thought the fresh air might do me good.What a mistake,felt like I was running with only half a lung.Had to keep stopping to get my breath back,I won't be doing that again in a hurry.
How is everyone else,all well I hope???????
