  • Well done Moger! It's hard going on these dark, blowy mornings but it will be all worth it when you cross that finish line in the time you set for yourself. Sounds like you'll do it as you have the bit firmly between your teeth. Sorry about the cramp. It must be worrying when you're quite far from home and it's cold. Pleased you managed to run it off though.

  • Fab Moger! Sounds like you have it all worked out. We learn as we go on don't we :-) I'm gradually increasing distance but not quite the miles you are doing!.....yet x :-D

  • Wow, that is a LONG run, and a great time for that distance. Sounds like you're learning during your training, and that's an important point. So well done, and I'm sure you'll do amazingly in April.

  • Goodness, you're going great guns aren't you? That's a very loooong run! Well done x
