I've now stopped doing full-marathons and am concentrating on half-marathons, 10-milers and 10kms.
I like to race once a month, but I train 4 to 5 times a week.
All very much in the spirit of 'fun'.
Any other whisky-loving runners out there?
I used to do quite a lot in my school days. Was one of the better guys at Cross Country but did not like running in the depts of winter in a field of mud
Conversely I loved Orienteering which I also excelled at.
Kept it up till my mid twenties and at my peak was able to do a sub 5 min mile and 10 miles in about 1 hour 10 min. Never took it seriously even though some of my trainers tried to push.
Can still do the 100meter sub 13 secs but it has to be in the car now
Totally turned my back on it for football but only play badminton and cycle now due to a injuries
