Cheers Phil. What are you doing lurking on here?😉 Do you have an autumn road marathon planned or are you concentrating on the trails and Brutal runs?

Thought I'd have a look around the forums and see how everyone got on at the weekend 😊

Snowdonia Trail Marathon in July is next up. Autumn I'll be targeting a fast half marathon, trail races and getting ready for cross country.

Quick check over the last 100+ posts and good to see pacing being discussed for a change 😉 I'd like to think myself as an even pace but that's maybe only in my head but we all slow at some stage. (Don't we?)

Jovi I'm due to revisit Rotterdam at some stage as I owe it one having ran it in 07 during a heat wave and put my family through the experience of meeting me in the first aid tent.

Four marathons planned over the next couple of months and would love a gfa at one of them but after today's run on very heavy legs (Ultra still in them) it's not looking like Belfast on Monday but I might start out at gfa pace. Best shot could be Newry at the end of May or Derry at the start of June.

Good to see the list below (on phone) or over at the side. 👊
