OO – Excellent Parkrun time!
Hi Speedy, great to hear from you again! Congrats on the Ultra course
record. Here’s an Ultra worth considering - https://www.entrycentral.com/Self-transcendence-100km-50km
It’s the British 100k Championship and I’ll be there representing N. Ireland.
I achieved my goal mileage for the year today. I surpassed 3650 miles,
so that’s 10 miles a day average. It’s been a much tougher goal than I
expected, as I’ve really wanted a good rest for months. I had no problem with
high mileage training up until the Berlin Marathon. However, with no ‘A’ races
since then it’s been tough maintaining 60-70 miles a week.
I’ve a marathon on
Sunday and want to run two Parkrun’s on New Year’s Day, but after that I’m
taking a few days off.
And 12 for me this afternoon @7:58/m. Seem to be getting closer to 2,600 miles for the year but I may settle for 2,598 ...
Sounds like you have the cold in control DT - no doubt you charged your infectious clients a premium rate!
Welcome back Speedy. I've spent a lot of time at Holme Pierrpont in the last few years as my oldest son rows. It's a pretty good location for a 10K or Half-Marathon but I'm not sure I'd fancy doing the marathon there!
Clearly the daylight is good for your speed Gul! How's the target looking?
That's a lot of miles (and medals) Badbark - well done!
Good to hear you're enjoying the holiday runs Gerard.
Still need to book the Boston accommodation and travel Lorenzo - I was toying with staying somewhere along the course to get some pre-marathon familiarisation in but there doesn't seem to be many options. The Sunday Baseball game sounds like a good idea but I expect I'll be too focussed on preparations for the big day!
Gul – Great b2b 12 milers and a 13. Nearly there now!
Speedy – Good 12 miles completed. It’s a pity the 100k classes with your
DT – Glad to read you are feeling better. I hope your hit your Parkrun
SBD – Nice 12 miles completed but I’m surprised any runner can stop on
xx98 miles for the year.
I ran my 12th different Parkrun of the year today. I took it
relatively easy due to a Marathon tomorrow, running 20:57. It was the Falls
Parkrun and not pleasant. The road in to the carpark was covered with broken
glass and the course was covered in dog mess. I plan on running all N. Irelands Parkruns but that's one I'll not be back to!

Sounds grim BB, I'll not make a special journey to that one! New Year's Day will see me add my 40th (and 41st) different parkruns - it was on the bucket list to run 40 different ones before turning 40). Next up is the A-Z challenge, which of course I'm already more than halfway through but the ones I don't have yet will involve a fair bit of travelling.
I can recommend Jersey for the J. Gerard is your man for long cal knowledge.
Clearly a good marketing opportunity to rename the local park "Xanadu" ...
Well done on nailing the 3,000 Gul and a good session to finish with.
Bad news on missing Town Moor Poacher. Have you got the next one lined up?
Good park running from OO, DT and Badbark
Good finish to the year Birch and a nice number.
Just to be clarify - I only get to 2598 for 2019 if I run 18 miles today and 6 miles tomorrow. At the moment the 18 is looking like a tough ask ... particularly if I don't get a move on ...
