Ran the penninsula again today ... maybe it's just my inexperience but I'm really worried that I've picked a wrong'un! It's a hard run for me - although I did stop to take photos along the way - and it took me an hour .. the thought of doing it twice (as per route map) fills me with dread. I'll concentrate most of my training up there now with xtraining at the gym ... & lots of hill work. The final hill at 22 miles will be a killer. Great if you're an ultra runner but I entered coz it was on my doorstep & I'm stupidly enthusiastic and now I'm having more than a few second thoughts. For anyone interested, I hope to have the photos of today's run up on my website by tomorrow. (www.joannasayers.com)
Hi All, just back from my honeymoon and fresh and ready to crank up the training!
Started out with a 5 miler this morning - probably try and get in 30 miles this week to get things moving!
Heard you'd done Outlaw (was away with Mouse that weekend) - so much for never doing another IM then hey?!
Plenty of maras out there to get a good time on so hopefully you'll get your times.
Things bit up and down here -have been distincty lacking in mojo for some time now and seem to lurch from one injury to another. Had been relatively injury free for a while but have now got a foot prob. Just what I need with 7 marathons and a half in the next 10 weeks .
Did Faversham marathon a few weeks back. 40 laps round a recreation ground. Amazingly, it was a cracking good race. Fastest of the year (though still woefully slow) and I enjoyed every minute of it. Now if only they could all be like that!
I'm in, it will be my second one and I'm going to try and get under 4 hours
Given the current weather, I just hope its going to be dry !!
Try changing your diet, Amanda.
Happy to help
The "undulations" looked a bit worrying then I realised the profile is in feet.
jS - the compisition is good. but i think you have the RAWR setting a bit to high for the landscapes, other than that there good pictures.
I'm in! Had a disastrous attempt at the Fleetwood marathon on Sunday and managed a spectacular DNF after 18½ miles due to the galeforce wind and sandblasting, so I'm now hoping that Rutland is going to be a walk in the park (literally) in comparison!
With 7 marathons and GER (inc Rutland) on the cards I'm hoping not long. I've accustomed myself to losing Kent Coastal and Two2Go but am really not prepared to lose much more. Will be devastated if I lose Berlin.
It's right down by the toes so am hoping it's an easy mend - if it is a fracture of course. Just frustrating to have to wait so long to get it checked but I'm too honest to make out it's an A&E case (was turned away from there on Wednesday when I said it was the physio sending me).
I'm in! Hi all you Rutland runners--let's keep our fingers crossed for some decent weather on 7th
November.I ran Stockholm in June, but this will be a whole new ball-game! Can't wait--any tips anyone?
Right, did the Two2Go marathon over the weekend and now focusing on this. Looking forward to it. Anyone else staying locally over the weekend? We've booked up somewhere.
I'm hoping I can get some solid training in for this and avoid injury.
Great photo's Joanna
This will be my second marathon, the first being Windermere
I don't expect I'll see any of you as I shall be right at the back !
Well, someone has to bring up the rear !
