  • Morning Ju, morning all ๐Ÿ™‚

    One plan ended and about to embark on another race plan. Got three races lined up, or four in fact ๐Ÿ˜€ so need a plan to keep me organised and stop me over-running.

    Resting for a day or two now post Sunday race.

    Good luck with all your running plans folks ๐Ÿ˜€

  • sounds good to me, what three or four races do you have lined up?


  • thats exciting.... and ambitious!! well done!!

  • Hi!

    I had my longest run on Saturday, 32km (I keep calling it a 20-miler, but in fact I'm metric, and the route is a little under 20 miles heh). It went really well, I am extremely pleased and quite optimistic for Brighton! One thing, I've been stressing about the weather, and it was pretty windy on Saturday, a brisk westerly, and I started off with misgivings. The last 4km of the run were pretty hard going, dead against the wind BUT I also got to run 13km along the sea front, from Southwick Power Station to Rottingdean, WITH the wind, which was great! So now I'm thinking that a bit of wind wouldn't be so bad, to help us along the last 10k of the marathon. As long as it's westerly anyway...

    The answer my friend is blowing in the wind! Or not. Anyway, hope everyone's training is going well too!

  • Sounds like you doing well with the training and you already ran most of the course already!

    You gonna smash it! (photo of that bike yet? )

  • Photo tba... :)

  • Although my bike doesn't really look very exciting!

  • Thank you!! I must have run every inch* of the course in bits, except for the part where we go up to Ovingdean on the road (I always go along the Undercliff Walk). I'm saving that up for a "special treat" :)


  • a special treat? I hope your not too disappointed!

  • wow well done, that is certainly going to bolster you for Brighton!!!

  • I am still trying training for the paddock wood half on the 2nd March, which i am trying to go for my sub 2hr! i think maybe i am building it up a bit to much and should just go with the flow!

    After that i haven't decided what to do, Beachy Head marathon keeps pulling my heart strings! do it do it, then my brain reminds me how mental it is to even do a marathon especially something hilly and steep and beautifully wonderful like Beachy head marathon.

  • I'm doing the Beachy 10k, looking forward to it :)

  • only the 10k?

  • Hells yes, no more marathons for me this year!

  • so your training really hard for Brighton and then your going to let all that go to waste and not do any more? Sounds like you want to do the Marathon really.

  • I will do it again sometime, it's the best! However, London next year (if I can get in), and thoughts of an ultra in 2019 :) Plus triathlon in between of course!

  • you should do it!!

  • ssshhhh!

  • When on holiday in Switzerland I watched the Junhfrau marathon. 41k seems mind boggling to me but up a mountain???

  • 10k trail race Thoresby Hall in April with Murphybabe ๐Ÿ˜€

    10k super hilly race in May, the Holymoorside 10k, which nearly broke my leg a few years ago ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.

    Cardiac Hill race the following Sunday. this is a mile race which culminates in a near-vertical climb ๐Ÿ˜€ I came second in it last year. Had I known this I would have worked harder ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ It was hilarious!

    BRampton Brewery Spire 10 mile in early July. This has been red hot the last twice.

    Another one not open yet' I don't think, is a mid week evening 10k race up to the front door of Hardwick Hall. This was a grueller last year as it was so hot with not a breath of air. Great party atmosphere for this. The locals were heroic ๐Ÿ˜€

    Not entered my local half marathon yet which is in October I think. It's literally down the road which is fab as I can mosey there and back ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Broken legs and cardiac hills, sounds fab :D

  • you need to enter some race's with some hills!

  • I was just gonna say, well it keeps me off the streets! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Indeed!!!!

  • I've been in Disneyland Paris with my youngest since Sunday. I managed a 6K interval run this morning. I'm really pleased, as this is the first time I've ever managed to run while visiting. I also did a strength training session yesterday. Friday will be another interval run - at home - and my usual long run on Sunday.
