I'm a bit of a lapsed runner...have done 4 marathons in my time..Edinburgh twice Dublin once and one in Aberdeen way back in 1985 and countless half marathons and 10k's...Cycling is much more enjojable and you can go further and stop for beer and stuffWhere?
Road, 'Trail', or Fell-Races?
(Anyone local to me??)
Get thee over to www.sportsshoes.com in Bradford. Looks like joke JJB stuff from the outside, but has a huge range of running (and other) kit inside, and you can park right outside which is a rarity in a town centre. Anything in last year's colours etc is usually heavily discounted.I'm hoping to in order to start doing tri's - used to run a lot many years ago.
However, I first need to sort out a decent pair of running shoes.
Whch club were you in ?I trained with a group of elite runners who took me up to quite a reasonable level that often meant finishing on the podium. I used to win all sorts of prizes including a bottle of whiskey on the road race circuit. I retired when I was about 35 but could try going back and seeing if I could do something like 10 miles in 1 hour.
Did you ever do the Rhayader 20 ? I've done it a couple of times - pretty much all uphill for the first 5 miles.I could run for 20miles efortlesly in around 2 hours and would love to be able to get to that level of fitness again.
