Beanie - you are braver than me. Far too scared to join a running club! Tell me more about this online challenge...

Josie - i'm fairly confident that if you run that time on on your own you can nail the sub 60 in a race. Have you entered one yet?

Day off for me watching the athletics. Men's 5000m is later on - v exciting. They do it so fast! I think the most athletic thing i'll be doing this afternoon is pottering between kitchen and living room...

Hi all,

Excellent time Josie - your next race will be interesting!

Plod - thanks for the feedback on the training and sorry you had a bad time with your garmin am having to have a day off myself today as i'm still aching from playing football on Thursday - I can barely walk as my leg muscles are really painful! I am now trying not to panic....race next sunday...need to do a long run...

Maybe a swim to loosen up those muscles followed by a nice long strech?

Hi all,

          Just got back from my hols. , a week in the Lake District. Didn't do much running but plenty of hill walking.

Racing on Monday (Grimsthorpe 10k), undulating / hilly course will be happy to get under 65 min. to beat last years time.

plod -  i dont know have an agreed day say a Sunday - we all go out and do a 10k - hopefully the thought of having to post your time will be enough motivation to feel like a real race???  What do you think???

Had a sponsored walk today - 7 1/4 miles so a nice relaxing day - going for a run tomorrow before i am am going to my mums for roast pork yummy!

 Beanie, Plod :

Good idea to all go out and run a time trial / online challenge on the same day, could always do different distances 3k , 5k  etc..

23/08/2008 at 21:50

Well done Josie.  Get that race entry in.  You'll run faster in a race...all that adrenaline and other competitors.

Good luck with your race Eeyore.  Don't forget to tell us how it went.

beanie - I like the idea of an agreed day where we all do a 10k run and post our time. I always do my long run (currently 6-7 miles) on a Saturday, but could always rearrange it. Or just post my time a day later. Ran for an hour exactly today and ended up doing 5.65 miles, so I've got a long way to go for a sub 60 10k yet. Though this time 6 months ago, the idea of running a single mile was a huge goal for me, so I think it's doable.

Good luck to anyone racing tomorrow

I would be interested in doing a 5 k or 10k on the same day as you all.

Good luck with all your races tomorrow.

I have had a really bad week got out 4 times but struggled maintaining distance. Maybe an arranged day would motivate me to push myself on.

24/08/2008 at 13:16

I love the idea of a load of us all out doing 10k at the same time - sounds like a great idea.

I'm going to enter the candleford canter on 26th October, which will be my first race...

just got back from my first ever 9 miler. took 1 hour 45. now mainlining jelly babies. feel whacked.

24/08/2008 at 14:59
Well done plod! I'd probably have collapsed from exhaustion if I tried that
24/08/2008 at 16:21
Yes, well done Plod, very similar time to me. Been a few weeks since I've done a long run though, would be well pleased with that time.
24/08/2008 at 16:56

Well done plod.I am attempting a 10 miler tomorrow 9.24 best so far

. just finished night shift so have really struggled this week.

have been out 4 times and haven't even managed 4 miles hope I can do it tomorrow after rest today.

let you all know.

24/08/2008 at 19:47

well done plod.....

so many of us think its a good idea - shall we set a day.....just to dampen things i am off for a two week holiday a week on Tuesday......so if you want perhaps set one in say last Sept / Early Oct so everyone who needs to can prepare for it - and it will give me some time to get rid of my post holiday lack of fitness????

Someone say a day???? 

How did the peeps that had a race today get on????

I am also on hols 6th sept to 20th so end sept early oct is good for me too.
24/08/2008 at 20:28
last weekend in Sep I'm on a rugby bender in Dublin, so will need to get back on track once I get home - best for me would be 4th / 5th Oct.
24/08/2008 at 20:48

5th October would be good for me as it's 3 weeks before my half. 

24/08/2008 at 21:19

5th October is good for me too - shall we go for that weekend?  oh what fun.

susie po - 3 weeks before your half - you should beable to walk it (is that the saying - to say it should be easy? - not literally advising to walk it - tehe!)

24/08/2008 at 22:05

I wish that were true I have hit a wall this week with my running and even 10 mins in have been struggling.

Going out tomorrow and really nervous have been on nights this week and it does take it out of you also had a dodgy ear but not looking forward to my attempt at a long run tomorrow.

Hope this is a temporary thing!
