My first post in this forum, so please forgive me if there's a dedicated thread for such a partners request (I did look)....
I've signed up to my first ever race. It's actually a lot of firsts, my first timed run, my first marathon distance, my first trail run and first multi day event! The Votwo Jurassic Coast challenge on 22-24 March. I plan to go in the run/walk class.
And now I have two months to train....
I'm in ok shape, running to/from work every other day (15mile roundrip) and interspersed with cycling the route on the days in between. I also climb and do BMF for strength training. But my experience of long runs, anything over 9 miles, is non existent. And thus far only on tarmac with the odd jaunt through a park.
I have however done many long days trekking in mountains and last year walked the London to Brighton.
Anyone in London area looking to do some longer runs and ideally off road? Like I'm thinking of getting train out to top of Epping Forest and running back to Liverpool Street through as many parks as possible.
Or running sections of the Green Chain which so far I've only walked.
If anyone's keen on joining up, do let me know.
