I think it looks like a hoot and you've tempted me into it. I've just run my first 10k and am entering a half in the autumn so provided I keep training I think it might be really good fun - if a bit cold?!
Hi cheerup, I'm doing this one- eek in 6 weeks! I'm like you in that my aerobic fitness from double / triple classes is pretty good but I haven't ran any distance properly for absolutely ages. I ran 10k the other day which was surprisingly ok, and I'm aiming for 10 miles tomorrow- ill let you know how I go!
I think they look good fun too! My enthusiasm dipped a bit when people were generally horrified I was entering, but after watching some tough mudder / rat race stuff on you tube I'm back to thinking it looks good fun! Have you entered anything before?
CooEeEldridgeThat looks even harder than Survival of the Fittest - would love to hear how you get on. I've never entered anything before but feel that I really need a training goal, and distance running on it's own doesn't seem very fun or exciting. I also thought that this would mean that I can't continue to neglect my upper body strength. Also that I need to get over my aversion to doing anything outside unless it's upwards of 15 degrees and sunny!
