Paul’s Blog – The Snowdonia Half Marathon

Looking ahead to next Sunday’s event starting from Llanwrst at 12:00. I think last Saturday’s Moelwyn Race has done me good, although the 1:7 hill coming up from Trefriw is, to be fair, playing on my mind. I was hoping to stand out from the crowd by running in a Cotswold Oudoor T shirt in order to pay them back for recent support over Nepal & our subsequent Presentation Evening but alas have left it too late so they’ll just have to cheer me on screaming he bought that, that & that from us you know!

Had a good training run the weekend before last with a drinking mate, Ron. I had him on the climbs but he had me on the descents but be warned Ron I’m not waiting for you at the tops next Sunday, learnt my lesson there!

Not sure what time I should be aiming for, clearly a Half Marathon p.b. is out of the question but I like to think I’d be around the 1 Hour 50 Minutes mark, that would be 14 minutes off a p.b. can anyone with experience of last year’s race comment as to whether that is realistic or not?

Thighs still getting over The Moelwyn Descents but hopefully a last training run on Wednesday together with some ML Nav. practice with Jock tomorrow should confirm their recovery.

Really excited to be racing on home turf in a Half Marathon, the more support we get the better, for details just look up Snowdonia Half Marathon.

    Looks superb Paul I often prfeer the smaller hills than the larger ones the larger better known hills always attract the tourists (I remember doing Scafell Pike a year or so ago and you almost had to queue to get to the summit), but the lesser known hills tend not to get the traffic. And in most cases are just as good or even better that the biggies.Excellent post as always!
