Welcome Russwyd

Post by Dave Tuttle on Sat Aug 03, 2013 6:33 pm

I just saw that our old friend Russ from the UK joined the forum today... I'm glad you're here Russ, you've been a long time friend to us all.

Thanks Dave, good to be here and nice to see some old friends on the list - some I've been hoping to catch up with again since the CA site forum is less frequented by many.

Just seen the Syracuse links too and the course looks nice - really wish I could have been there with you all but it looks impossible in terms of my work commitments (plus I've got two marathons the same week, but that's another story!).

Hope to get some news from my old friends here and thanks again for signing me up.

Welcome Russ, we all migrated over here but still visit CA. Two marathons, gosh how do you find time to train?

They are both 'training run' marathons, actually - I'm racing a road marathon two weeks beforehand, but mainly then training toward the Winter 100 mile race at the end of November. By then I will have run around 7 or 8 marathons and half a dozen or so ultras this year anyway - so far in 2013 I've done a couple of 50 milers, a 100 mile, 2 or 3 marathons and two 100km trail races, now a summer wind down a little with a couple of marathons then stepping up a bit toward the 100 miler.

So I guess it's less 'training' than maintaining fitness and keeping ticking over with a few long slow runs throughout the year. Once you're running those kinds of miles then it's easier to 'maintain' than to climb up through a marathon schedule or whatever.

That's my logic anyway!

Actually I'll own up Rachel - not the same week but the same day.

A few years back when I used to regularly run the Beachy Head trail marathon every year, one of the toughest and hilliest marathons in the country, I was offered a number for the Great South Run 10 mile race in Portsmouth the following morning. I'd given up running the GSR a few years earlier, but thought "why not?" and so started "The Double", with a few others joining me in subsequent years.

Last year, one of the regular guys was raising money for a local family with a severely disabled child, and he discovered that the Brighton Midnight Half Marathon, a muddy and hilly trail race with head torches, was to be run the same weekend. So, we now had "The Triple" - a tough trail marathon on Saturday morning, a tough trail half marathon with head torches the same night, then a 10 mile fast road race on Sunday morning.

Anyway, this year the midnight half isn't being run... so the guys have come up with an idea to run the Beachy Head Marathon on Saturday morning, drive part of the way back to Portsmouth and run the South Downs Marathon course at midnight (another extremely hilly trail race normally run in June, so we'll be doing it in October, in the dark), then the GSR on Sunday morning.

The 10 miler was tough last year after a hard marathon and half marathon in the previous 24 hours - though I was happy enough to run around 76 minutes. This year even that might be a little harder to achieve!

Hi All,

Just back from running the Reykjavik Marathon, Iceland... a great weekend away with Sarah, some lovely trips to the geysers and whale watching.. and a decent enough run.

I went into it pretty flat and tired to be honest - struggled to run an 8 mile tempo section on a training run last week at 7:15 pace so I knew it wasn't going to be easy and I would have to be quite conservative with my pace.

I went through half way just outside 1:39 and finished in 3:19:53. Would have liked to have run 5 minutes quicker but I'm happy enough with that in the circumstances. Conditions were pretty good - wet, windy and cold, which suits me. This was my 9th marathon or ultra of 2013 so I guess I should be feeling it a bit!

Congratulations on the finish and we'd all love a 3:19:53 time. You must be a regular machine with 9 marathons/ultras this year. Good for you.

Thanks guys,

So far this year I've run:

Two 45 mile trail races

One 33 mile trail race

One 105 mile trail race

Two 100km trail races

One 16 mile cross country race

Three road marathons

Plus I've helped out as buddy on two 40-50 mile stretches of other ultra races to run with team mates, and my 'regular' training on top.

Next up an easyish month then the Jersey Marathon in October, possibly the Round Rotherham 50 mile trail race two weeks later, then the 'triple' weekend for fun and charity where I'll be running the Beachy Head trail marathon on Saturday morning, another trail marathon at midnight on Saturday night, then the Great South Run 10 mile road race on Sunday morning.

Not sure whether to run a couple of my regular half marathons in November, leading up to the Winter 100 mile trail race at the end of the month. Then it'll just be the Portsmouth Coastal Trail Marathon in December before a week off and kick starting the New Year 2014 with the Country to Capital 45 mile trail race in January.

Fingers crossed!

Russ
