jason - Maidenhead 10 Good Friday 29 March. A PB course.
I signed up for the Snowdonia Marathon thinking this would be my easiest distance race of the year! Ha! White Cliffs 50, Rat Races The Wall and probably the Thames Gateway 100 will all take place before this insanity but then I realised it is probably in the middle of nowhere.
Does anyone have any great suggestions for reasonably priced and/or dog friendly accommodation that's pretty local to the start?
And out of interest how tough is this marathon? I'm a 3hr 50minute(ish) marathoner currently for a (reasonably) unduating marathon distance
Brer - just watching the weather forcast i think the decision may go your way ( we need a blue shivery smiley for the next few days)
It's already sleeting here and some of the higher & more inland villages have got snow already but looks like down south wales is going to be hardest hit so JD may get to use his yaktracs yet.
T-Rex - i'm definately a no for this year so send me to the bottom of the list
paulkrunner Travelodge in Caernarvon have option to allow dogs to stay... When I booked a week or so ago it was £50 for 2 nights (without dogs)...
Hi all, hope everyone is well and lovin' the white stuff!! Well, to carb load or not to carb load, that is the question..will just have to rely on decision going my way. Really want to do Gloucester but not at any cost.
Thanks for the support Chrissi re. weather forecast
Panad..no leggings or tights? They breed 'em tough your way buddy
Brer- They are on standby for a 14 tomorrow
2x6.5m recoveries here today- no snow yet.....
A nice hilly 7miles for me yesterday, one mega hill that I'd never managed to run all the way up before was conquered. I was well happy. Bit of x training this eve, squats n lunges... build those legs!
def carb load brer.. just enjoy it
really glad today is a rest day.. blizzards here!
Blizzard conditions here
Can't go out to play as i walk to work so no chance of getting snowed in
Brer - go on eat the cake and pasta anyway and enjoy
Do you think JD is yaktracking through the countryside and that's why he's not pisted yet?
4.65 miles speed with club last night... 4 x 5min effort, with 3min rest, half a mile to warm & & cool down.
Ran into work today (4.45) hadn't snowed but didn't want to get caught in the gridlock coming home so will take it easier going home... Fish, chips & mushy peas tonight!!!
Brer, at least they've cancelled... a good call... Mrs Lemmy's in the Benfleet 15 Sunday so still waiting on their update (I'm too wimpy to do it, it's my wankles...)
And it's my 1st Run Director at Valentines parkrun tomrrow... Fingers crossed...
pisted ? posted while inebriate? No snow here at all in far north
Greetings from the "rare" Met Office Red Alert zone "SE of the Black Mountains".
Not as much snow as was anticipated. Was half thinking about making my comeback run today, but decided against it in the end in case I came a cropper on the other shoulder, or even worse the same shoulder!
OK, Chrissi. Stay around for the chat, though!
Hope you fitted in your two runs, jason. Wales expects.
Oooooohh Trex, I believe birthday greetings are in order.
Well, all carbed up and no place to go. So glad they called it today though and didn't leave it until the last moment. Cancelled hotel, didnt have to pay..result! So, a little adventure of my own tomorrow then in deep snow..who knows where I'll end up but it'll be a laugh. Next marathon is Hardmoors 26.2 at Osmotherley..Feb 17th..still snow risk then I suppose
So Lemmy, what are your wankles
TR40, jenf and Panad-great going team. So, where is Mr Yaktrax..I want a full and comprehensive report about their effectiveness for running.
No internet connection yesterday, but managed to run! Best of both worlds- made a big snowman in my garden with my boy, then discovered that only 2 miles away the roads were snow free! 14m in 1.37.08 (6.56 av) followed by 1m warm down
Just back from a lovely 10miler, bit icey in places, but I love running on crunchy snow, I didn't worry about pace, just wanted to do the miles and stay safe.
JD, everyone is waiting for the yaktrax report.
Hope everyone else enjoys playing in the snow.
