Race Report

London Marathon, Sunday 25th April I officially started my training for the London marathon on 4 January this year. Back then we were enjoying a winter wonderland of sub zero temperatures and snow covered roads. 16 weeks and seemingly countless hours of running and bowls of pasta later, I set off down to London on a glorious spring morning in a mild panic as forecasters were predicting 20 plus degrees for Sunday. Luckily not only did the forecast turn out to be wrong but even if it hadn't in hindsight I'd have still been a good deal cooler than everyone at Edinburgh last weekend. As it was, marathon day dawned overcast if a little humid and I got a lovely soaking when it poured down about half an hour before the start (in a somewhat surreal moment I was chatting to a guy in the queue for the loos who was huddled under a poncho trying to stay dry as he applied sun block!) I still felt pretty warm in the later stages of the race mind you - I think my ideal running temperature is probably about 5 degrees! Of course you'll all know the route round London. I found it strange seeing the landmarks from the road rather than on TV for once! My parents did duly Sky Plus the entire coverage for me and then put up with me spending an entire afternoon making them watch it again in case I spotted myself. Sadly I was clearly feeling camera shy. Quite possibly for the best. Not sure I'd want the entire nation to have seen me at certain points in the race! Obviously London is a hugely popular marathon and for a middle of the pack runner like me this inevitably led to a few bottlenecks in the first few miles. Things also got a little exciting around water stations trying to co-ordinate grabbing a bottle, not taking another runner out as you dive to the side and not falling over discarded bottles.

At half way I was bang on target for my aim of 4 hours. At this point in the course you can see the faster runners on their way back through 21/22 miles. I did keep an eye out for Tony but didn't spot him (actually considering his amazing time he was probably finished, changed and on the train home by then!) I did however see the oh so familiar blue strip of an A&T runner - is it just me or do they get everywhere?! Out in Canary Wharf I started to suffer a bit and by the time I reached the 20 mile marker it was most definitely hurting! I'd been told that half way in the marathon is actually 20 miles and suddenly that made sense. I kept thinking only 10km to go but by that stage 10km seemed like a long, long way. To keep myself going I decided to take a quick walk break at the two remaining lucozade stops which meant I only had to get through a few miles before having a rest. I quickly discovered walking hurt more than running did though so settled into what felt like the slowest jog/ shuffle I have ever achieved in my life! At 40km I decided to take a leaf out of Steve Hart's book of how to run races and cunningly fell over the timing mats. No real damage done and luckily I was quickly rescued from the middle of the road by two lovely St John's ambulance ladies who not only cleaned me up but also coped very well with my hysterical sobbing that I just wanted to finish. As a general piece of advice, sitting down less than 2 miles from the end of a marathon is not a good idea. My St John's saviours had to haul me to my feet so I could carry on as I was unable to stand back up on my own! As I tottered off into the road like Bambi on ice I did get the most amazing cheer from the crowds which of course made me promptly burst into tears again (I'm sure most people don't cry quite so much during a marathon). I have very little memory of the last part of the race (I don't recall seeing Buckingham Palace at all and I think it's probably quite big!) beyond the incredible feeling of relief when I finally finished. I missed my target by some way in the end (and sadly not entirely due to my little rest) but as it was my first marathon I was always going to get a PB. Now of course I have

something to beat next time. I just need to find myself a nice flat, fast, quiet and cool marathon which doesn't use timing mats!. Finally, a massive thank you to everyone who sponsored me and for all the good wishes, good advice and support on the training runs. It really was hugely appreciated!

Race Report

Bluebell Trail 10 Race, Sunday 2th May The goody bag at the end of this race includes a (very white) little towel beautifully embroidered with bluebells and the logo “I‟ve trooped Trooper Lane”. In the immediate aftermath of the race, it was very easy to forget the bluebells and to just talk about that impossibly long and steep hill. This is a shame, because actually there is so much more to this race. So, I will get Trooper Lane out of the way before I get on to the real gems in this „challenging‟ ten miler.

About 4 miles into the race Trooper Lane climbs 570 ft in just over half a mile. I have been up much steeper climbs than this – wearing boots and carrying a pack. This hill makes Agecroft look like a small rise in a flat meadow. I had been warned about this climb and already decided that so early in the race I wasn‟t going to blow out by trying to run the whole thing, when I needed to stop to walk, I would. After ten paces I was already blowing hard and decided to try it legionnaire style, ten paces on, ten paces off. I got to nine in my second set and had to stop. At the bottom Ian Thomas told me to look out for Elvis half way up, before he trotted off ahead of me. So when I trudged up to the B&B with the Elvis sign in the window I decided I really ought to try to run again. I got to the next bend and realised Elvis was nowhere near half way up, the Lane finished somewhere near the cloud line. I gave up and walked the rest of the hill. The consolation was that I was walking as fast as those who were running and toward the top I could not only see Ian now walking ahead of me, but Adam came up behind me walking too. In fact, I haven‟t met or heard of anyone who managed to run the whole thing, not even Lauren– yes it was that steep! According to Garmin, that section of the race took me nearly 14 minutes. At the top a cheery marshal told me that I‟d made it, everything is downhill or flat from now on – she lied, but more of that later.

Now that I‟ve got the nightmare out of the way, like a child eating up their greens before being allowed to move onto pudding, I can tell you about the bluebells. The race starts with half a lap round a football pitch and then up a short slope and along the track out of the park. Ian T had warned us that early in the race there are lots of bottlenecks. I should have taken him more seriously, we ground to a halt seconds after the start gun as the first bottleneck was the small rise. After a short section of path we ducked into the bluebell woods. This was beautiful, but very frustrating because the path is narrow and at every tiny rise or dip the crocodile of runners was reduced to a walk. The first mile was virtually flat, but still took 11 minutes. I spotted a gap in the trees, decided to risk broken ankles and shot off to the side of the track. It was great fun leaping through the tree roots and undergrowth; it reminded me of playing cowboys and Indians when I was a kid. (I grew up on an RAF base we played lots of non pc war games!).

I think it also meant that I gained quite a lot of time, as I mentioned above, I was 4 miles in before Adam caught me up and I must have gained a huge lead on Steve, because I didn‟t see him again until the finish. I exited the woods with a broad grin on my face, buzzing with adrenaline and hoping for more of the same – which the marshal promised there was. After the woods is a tranquil section along the canal path. It‟s a well maintained path and much easier running than Radcliffe a fortnight ago. For the first time in the day I caught up with Ian for a brief chat. After the canal path there are some winding streets, fortunately well marshalled. A real plus of the day was the quantity and quality of marshals, on every possible corner, road crossing or hazard there was a friendly face to encourage you on. At one street corner the marshal cheerfully told us, “This is the practice for the big one!” We set off up a short, steep, cobbled road. I fully expected to get to the top in one go, I underestimated how steep it was and set off too fast. Ian came past at a much more sensible pace as I was reduced to a walk for the first, but by no means the last time of the day. Next Trooper Lane – enough said! At the top of Trooper Lane you cut out onto the hill top – stunning, but I was too busy looking at my feet to make sure I didn‟t trip to really appreciate it. Down the other side of the hill was more great fun. Cobbles, mud, puddles, I was again reckless in my determination to keep Adam in my sights and at one point slipped perilously whilst trying to dodge past a group of more sane lads, who gallantly tried to steady me – behaviour not exhibited by team Swinton later on! After this it all gets a bit hazy, there were lots of woods, stiles, fields, winding lanes and more hills. They probably weren‟t that steep, but after Trooper Lane, every small rise felt tough. I lost count of the times I caught up with Ian, only to have him pass me when I ground to a halt going uphill. I did keep Adam in my sights until about 7.5 miles - at the bottom of a field, I spotted him near the top, also walking – that made me feel so much better! Oh yes, and lots more mud, one foolish marshal as I approached a path wide quagmire shouted, “Route one, go for it!” I didn‟t quite manage to splash him as I plunged in to the far side of the bog. The last couple of miles into town do level out and the penultimate stretch is back along the canal, where Paul lay in wait to catch our mud spattered images, just before we forded the river. This was crystal clear, fast flowing, straight off the mountains and so COLD! Scrambling out the other side was OK, but racing for the finish with numb feet was very odd. Andy looked at the marshals as if they were mad when they told him he had to jump in, we were screaming at him from the opposite bank to persuade him that it wasn‟t a joke, this was the final hurdle! Standing around at the finish we were debating whether Coniston, Radcliffe or this was the tougher race when Mike came into view - neck and neck with two young ladies. There must have been some rivalry going on here, as he crested the rise, he pushed them aside to beat them to the line. Some excuse about overbalancing in the mud – Hah! Team Swinton competitiveness in action I think. Immediately after this race I pulled a face when Ric asked me if I‟d enjoyed it, but actually I did. It is undeniably tough; you‟re not exactly going to get a pb, but the scenery and variety of terrains make it great fun. I am glad that a combination of red wine and Steve‟s persistence got me to enter this, although I still don‟t remember actually entering – Coniston has a lot to answer for!

Race Report

Blacksticks Blue 10K, Friday 2nd April Carol had wanted to do this race because the goodie bag included her favourite cheese “Blacksticks Blue” who were also sponsoring the event. However your youngest daughter had signed up to do another race on the same day so Carol decided to drop out and join her. The race had been advertised as being “a circular road race offering stunning views overlooking the Bowland Fells” hmmm overlooking normally means a climb, so the night before I spent some time looking for any info I could find on the Internet, but as this was the first running of the race not much was forthcoming until Carol found a posting on the Runners World forums posted by the guy who had planned the route. Undulating start with an hill at 2 to 3 miles. OK no issue I thought even with my ankle. An early rise the next day, and after an hours drive I was in the middle of the beautiful Bowland Fells and parking up in the field set aside for the event, then a short walk across the road to get my number. The smell of bacon butties was very tempting but I managed to resist. After getting my number and returning to the car to get my cap and sunglasses, I was surprised to meet Kate along with her husband and children who had come along to support her. The race started under a hot sun and both Kate and myself ran together along the quiet country roads the first two miles as described undulating and then we hit the 2 mile mark and the hill started and went on and on and on. It was at this point I lost touch with Kate. The climb took us up the side of Beacon Fell and started to flatten out at just over 3 miles. On the top the views were truly stunning, the fells, Blackpool Tower and the Irish Sea all in view. You could see the village at the bottom and this being a circular route and half way round I assumed it was all downhill now, but no, a short downhill section to the water stop and then round a corner to be greeted with a very short steep section, visions of Trooper Lane. After this section a very fast steep run to the bottom and then a final mile and half of undulating roads to the finish. I arrived at the finish, exhausted the hills and the sun had taken its toll, but the friendly reception, along with the piece of cheese soon had me wanting more. One of the toughest 10K races I have done, but I will be back again next year, and trying to get as many members to join me as I can. You have been warned. Full Results available here

Race Report’s

Haigh Hall 4 ~ Grand Prix Race, Wednesday 12th May The directions said follow the road for 1.2 miles before turning right. Either the race started in Netto car park or we were lost! A quick u-turn and we were soon back on track following the signs for Haigh Hall. After negotiating the narrow lane and Paul avoiding the temptation to wipe out the entire A&T squad who decided to warm up en-masse in the middle of the road and not give way to oncoming cars we arrived at the rugby club and grabbed our numbers. Next challenge was to find the starting line.

As we were late we decided to warm up by slowly running to the start line, not knowing where we were going we decided to follow the stray A&T runner whose cunning plan was to lead us astray and take us back to the main road. In the space of half an hour we had now managed to get lost twice. We soon re-traced our steps and found the signs for the start where the rest of the club were waiting Claire was on hand to hold any unwanted jackets and other running apparel. The race started promptly at 7.30 with the first mile winding through the woods with a gradual incline for the first mile which then led to a large lawned garden which led up to a large stately house. A nice little surprise popped up as we ran round the house, another hill although this one was short and steep compared to the opening mile. As we trundled past the children‟s playground I was passed by a rather athletic looking runner who went sprinting past me, someone else who had got lost I thought. It was only when a couple more runners from Horwich went flying past me that I realised they were on the second lap while I was struggling round for my first lap. The second lap seemed harder especially the hill at the side of the house, not wanting to stop in front of the spectators I kept thinking of Trooper Lane and the fact I had a nice downhill mile back to the finish line. As we started our descent back to the finishing line the woman from Burnden who had been swapping places with me for the last mile started to pull away as her little nephew was shouting "Come on Auntie Susan!" as we crossed over the canal. As we approached the finishing line I could hear the crowd getting louder and my speed picking up. The extra downhill section helped me pass a runner from Chorley Harriers and keep ahead of 'Auntie Susan' crossing the line in 33:54. First male home for Swinton was Mark in 23:37 and first female was Lauren who finished in 28:12 and won 1st prize in the L35 category. Whilst the run was enjoyable it wasn't anything special, it was the first of a series of races round the course over the summer. Personally I won't be rushing back to complete the series but at least I'll know the directions to get there for next year. Haigh Hall 4 - by Wigan Phoenix

The third year of the haigh Hall 4 mile series got off to a blistering start when Matt Clowes, visiting from Staffs Moorlands, smashed the course record by a massive 45 seconds to finish in 19.55 and became the first runner to beat 20 mins. The men‟s places were completed by 3 horwich RMI runners, James Kevan, Richard Howarth and Martyn Bell, and Eddie Simpson from Dallam with less than 20 seconds between them. Martyn Bell was also first V40. The ladies‟ race was won by our own Rachael Moore in 25.20, closely followed by Josie Maley (Astley and Tydlesley) in 25.24 and Joanna Goorney (Wesham) (also first vet) in 26.02. Junior honours were claimed by Chorley Harrier‟s Tom Belcher in 25 .09. In the Grand Prix Horwich dominated the places (easily winning the team prize) and Astley and T the numbers taking part – well done. Burnden won the ladies‟ team prize.

Summer Running This is definitely the time to get the speed work in and encourage the legs to turn over more quickly. It's so much easier to do it when the weather is warm. You don't need to warm up for as long and you don't need to layer up. It's easier to run fast without this extra weight. Once you start the training session you can give yourself nice long recoveries between efforts without feeling the need to keep running, just to stay warm. By taking a long recovery the effort can be fast. So why not put in a few true speed sessions and see how it feels to pick your knees up and increase your cadence? Below are a few of my favourites for this time of year: Wind Sprints 6 - 8 X 150 metres fast running with a walk back recovery. If you can find a grass suface and run them with the wind behind you this will encourage a faster leg turn over. Alternatively you could find a very slight downhill gradient and this will do the same thing. Back to Backs (or turnarounds) 3 sets of 6 X 20 seconds fast with 10 seconds recovery. 5 minutes recovery between the 2 sets. You have to run these 'back to back' because the recovery is so short. You don't have time to go back to the start only to turn around before you have to start running quickly again. Oregon Circuit The session gets it's name from the University of Oregon in the USA where it was first invented. It involves fast running interspersed with circuit type activities like press ups, sit ups and squat thrusts. If you have a 'trim trail' that would be the perfect place as you could sprint between the stations where you perform the exercises. Alternatively sprint between 2 points approximately 20 seconds apart and perform exercises for around 20 seconds after each sprint. It is a good idea to sort the exercises into upper body, core and legs and perform one of each in order, for example, press ups, sit ups, squat thrusts, tri dips, back extensions, step ups... Fartlek A 30 minute run, preferably through woods and fields, where you sprint or stride out whenever you feel the urge to surge. It may be that you come to a section with a smooth surface and so stride out along it or you may decide to sprint through a line of trees in slalom fashion! So go out and enjoy the light mornings and nights, balmy evenings and fresh mornings. With all that speed in your legs you may want to let yourself go over a short race. Don't forget the parkruns every Saturday morning or there are lots of 5kms on weekday evenings....Dunham 5km this Friday night for those around the Manchester area.
