I’ve got a Stirling place in May, but I’ll be amazed if it doesn’t get pushed out again.

I've booked Newport - 26th April just in case they can start happening again.

They have it billed as a fast one. Not done it before.

It’s only weather jda, have a good run

Boston uk is full isn’t it? That’s my current spring marathon although I’m not sure I’ll be training quite so hard for it

Ah yes, so it is. Serves me right for procrastinating.

It's not just weather, it's about 3h of driving interspersed with 90 mins of running in a howling gale and pissing rain all for a fun run that I'm poorly prepared for with no particular goal. When I entered it was going to kick-start my winter marathon campaign as a pleasant run in picturesque autumnal lake district scenery :-)

There obviously aren't any of the larger spring marathons though some of the smaller ones could possibly go ahead. There's a fair chance we'll be on the downslope of the epidemic by then in which case there's really no reason to keep things shut down. Lots of time for things to change though.

I saw that there’s gonna be another Dorney event on in April. Don’t know if I can get motivated, need to think about it. I think I might be falling out of love with the idea of the long campaign and the target marathon. I’m also acutely aware that age is catching up with me...

It’s the Langdale HM isn’t it JDA? I had a look at the route and realised that I ran some chunks of it when I was in Grasmere earlier this year. It’s a lovely area, hope you make it.

Yes that’s the one. On a good day it would be lovely. I think I’ve convinced myself to keep my options open for the next couple of days (it affects what I do today and tomorrow) and just make a decision on the morning. Quite possibly the worst of the storm will have blown over tomorrow night and it will be bright and breezy.

Got something to say?
