Had a great, but bloody tough, run over wiswell moor to the nick o'pendle on saturday. The wind and the snow made it tough going but beautiful views. Wimped out goinng over Pendle though!
How was everyone elses runs this weekend?
Pendle in a blizzard is a scary experience mattl, nearly lost at least 1 child up there!
I dd the Goal-den girls 10k in Blackpool, went really well for the first 5.5 miles as I was running second to my superfast team mate but then the wheels really fell off in the shape of the recurring trapped sciatic nerve which gives me a complete dead leg, right down to my toes.
Finished 4th, time a bit rubbish but now it turns out that the race was actually 6.6 miles due to a course marking error so the time's not so bad now.
Have been to the docs this morning, he wants an MRI scan on my back and has given me some strong anti inflammatorys. Boston Marathon 3 weeks today so hoping for some miraculous cure now.
lol matt you crazy guy!! thats some wind you had!!
Nicola, its true you really do seem to be racing every week! Finishing 4th though, with injury thats very impressive. Well done you. Although, i hope things calm down in time for Boston (btw well done on getting in that) Just do nothing at all for one week. You should be fit enough to complete the race by now any way, 3 weeks before being tapering time. Then in a weeks time see if you can manage 2 miles pain free.
Ive been lazy and not run since Liverpool HM - But ive entered the blacksticks blue 10k, so looking forward to that. Not sure what April race to do yet. Torn between the Catforth 7 and the Fleetwood 10.
At least cycling uses similar muscles as running so you shouldn't be to badly affected rick.
Your have to let us know how it goes. you wearing a head cam ?
Hey rick well done on your mega cycle!!!!! And good luck for Sunday goodness me, your another one that never stops hey!!
Gosh you lot all make me feel very lazy! Well done Rick, at least you had the good weather for it and Bowland is lovely (although it's been a while since I went up that way).
Well done Paul on your first HM- I am half your age (well I will be after my birthday next week) and 2 HMs in you are 3 mins faster than me, so definitely a time to be proud of.
Hope everyone's getting out and enjoying the sunshine- I've not been out since parkrun but hopefully will do a middle-length run tomorrow and parkrun again on Saturday, although it'll probably be slow as I'm booked in to give blood tonight.
Still no running but seeing a neurosurgeon on Saturday, hope he has his magic wand ready! Flying out to Boston in 7 days
how did it go nicola ?
good luck on sunday rick, its a lovely day today for running, i went and did the park run this morning, a great start to the day
6.30 am wow thats impressive Paul!!!! Well done you!! I keep dreaming of getting up that early to go running, one day, one day...... lol
yes running when its quite is nice in a way and early morning is nice, esp when its sunny.
slowly waking up and having my breakfast in time for a 12 mile run.....its another sunny day so im really looking forward to it.
Challenge wanaka on 4, looks an amazing setting for a sports event.
Good luck to any one race and have a good one anyone who is out running this morning.
Ah wekk dine Rick, thats good going considering what you were doing the week before.
I have still not booked a race for this month thinking about the Fleetwood 10 Mile. Any one done it before ?
Any yes the weekend was good weather for running, we just need this cold wind to drop and then it a be good times.
I am already looking forward to watching the London Marathon and its still two weeks away.
I would go with what matt says rick. The marathon needs sixteen weeks focused training, for the event itself , starting from a solid base.
You could maybe do it and get round, but it would hurt and might put you off marathons for life.......So hold fire and maybe look for a marathon in September, if you really want to do one this year. Again matt does advice this.
