HAVE YOU DONE A HALF MARATHON BEFORE:
Lindsay Yes I have completed 30
Barry following closely behind Lindsay on 27
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO SIGN UP FOR THE GREAT FOREST EVENTS?
Recommended by other regular participants, Carol and Peter LaHood.
HAVE YOU BEEN TO THE EVENT BEFORE, AND WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT IT?
Yes, 2013 was our first time at the event. We liked the idea of an off road event, but did not want one that was too extreme or physically demanding.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR TRAINING?
We have a weekly training schedule. For a half we train up to 16km. Long walks on Sunday, and up to one hour walks 3-4 other days of the week.
ARE YOU BOTH COMPETITIVE WITH EACH OTHER AS REGARDS TO TIMES?
Barry can do a half in 2hrs 20, and Lindsay's best is still a more sedate 2hrs 47, but maybe one day she will catch him.
TOP TIP FOR STAYING MOTIVATED?
Have a goal in mind. Lindsay's goal is 50 half marathons and 5 full. She is at 30 and 3... and counting.
FAVOURITE MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE?
Fail to prepare, and prepare to fail.
