2013 Marathon Thread



  • Emmy- Who's going to be a busy girl then? image

    Just missed the rain for another 5m recovery run! Which brings 2012 to a close for me! So thought I should have a look back at the year- My best so far image

    My Running Year 2012:

    3318.83 m in 434:38:35 (7.53 av) image

    PBs at 5k, 10k, 10m, HM and mara.image

    Ran my first ultra in Januaryimage- won the second one in Marchimage and ranked 17th for 50k on Power of 10 image

    Here's to 2013!!!! Happy New Year Everyone!! XXXimageimageimage

    Happy New Year everyone image

  • With the races posted on here so far looks like it's going to be a busy year for some of you.  Good luck.

  • Last run of the year done for me nice 6 miles recovery,


    2402.89 Miles in 301:40:19 avg pace 7:33.

    Swim 87.51 miles, Bike 417

    Two fractures, stress fracture to ankle and fracture wrist

    Only PB'S, in 7 mile road race and two Triathlons. Looking forward to 2013image Happy New Yearimage

    First race of the New year tomorrow Race across the Glens image Off roadimage


  • NP- nice mileage. Hope you stay injury free in 2013! Good luck tomorrow!

    Tek- you have created a monster! Lol! image
  • Well done NP and good luck for tomorrow! image

    Johnas thanks for that, I've done Berlin but I'm afraid the 'fast course' thing does not make much difference to me as long as they are reasonably flat - I'm not in the greyhound league! image Frankfurt appeals after Teknik did it this year and it sounded pretty wel organised.

    Great stats guys. Mine are pretty miserable but virtually no running for 6 months.

    1252 miles, av pace 8:09mm, 169.55 hours. Turbo/spin 50.51 hours and lots of cross training/gym (not all recorded). No PBs but back to within 30 secs of 10k PB when 9 weeks back into running so hope that 2013 is a good year! image     



  • Last run of the year, Really nice 9 miler, start as you mean to go on, eh?

    First 5 at LSR pace, then 4 trying to keep as close to 7:45m/m as i could.

    9mile 1:17:02 

    5miles 45:53. 4miles 31:08

    Set up the watch to keep me in certain paces but saved the splits i set at each pace rather than per mile. Ill need to had a read at the book.


    Anyway, have a great year ahead everyone.

  • 8.0 miles in 71.30 for me today, which takes to me to 1345 miles for the year. PBs over 5k, 10k, HM aswell as completing my first marathon.

    Races for next year so far: Alloa HM - March 17, GSR HM - Sept 1 & Loch Ness - Sept 29. Need to find something for the summer though, maybe the Edinburgh - N.Berwick 20 miler at the start of May. That would be a new distance for me.

  • Why dont you do the Edinburgh Marathon, still plenty of time for training and that alloa HM will fit in well with most training planes. 

  • Because I've already talked myself out of doing 2 marathons next year! I tried to do Edin/LN last year, and ended up pulling out of Edinburgh a few weeks before, then got injured during LN

    So after those disasters I want to build upto it a bit more steadily this year. Albeit I doubt training for a 20 will be much less intense than for a mara.

    ok sorted: the link changes whenever I log out of Skydrive.  The above link image should still work...

  • Tek- Skydrive? Thought that was a film....
  • TeknikTeknik ✭✭✭

    jason LOL.  And as for creating a monster, he's now 15 years' old...image

  • Final Run of the year. A 4.24 Run with the dog. It was a good one with not a lot of folk about and lovely running conditions. 2012 has been good to me ....i Hope 2013 is a good one too image

    Teknik - thanks for sorting the race year. 

    Have a good evening if your going to a party tonight folks? A film and chinese for me and Mrs AGF !! image  ( And a bottle of wine )

  • Tek '(fraid it still just returns ms skydrive login screen for me.

    But forget it tonight and have a good NY! (when it comes)
  • Tek/ OH- it's working here....

  • Lol think it takes that number of pages just for Emmy's marathons. Will look at one in Oct or Nov not sure just yet.
  • Update:
    Race list link does work on IE, FF and Chrome on PC (but not on Android mobile phone - mobile Opera unless its just stuck on cached version)

    Additions: I certainly intend entering Snowdonia Marathon  (with intention of just finishing) and Loch Katrine on 10 March (probably marathon)
    Definitely just HM at Langdale though

  • Works on iPad too

    OH- see you in Snowdonia! image
  • Not long back from my last run of the year 90 mins 71% avg hr just over 8 miles, 1000 miles for the year not bad for a newbie
  • SC- well done! image
  • Happy New Year everyone! May 2013 bring you lots of injury free running and PB's!

    I am posting from my hospital bed, after sick bug and pulled muscles turned out to be my appendix. So I am well and truly benched for the next few weeks, but still optimistic of taking part in Paris - OH's Elspeth assures me I will have time!!

    I am thinking I could just run it as a training run, concentrating more on building mileage for the Ultra in August....... Mind is working overtime!
  • Kaz-OMG! Get well soon...2013 has got to get better for you.....

    Happy New Year, everyone image
  • TeknikTeknik ✭✭✭

    OH I'll update later...thanks for the technical help

    SC nice running

    jason & NP lolimage

    Kaz - oh no!!  Wishing you a speedy recovery...

    Happy New Year all!

  • Fiona CFiona C ✭✭✭

    kaz take care and get better soon!

    Happy New Year all. I hear the wind and rain but it'll be fine once out. image

    Have a good race NP.
