Daveo & 7th skip,

Well done.

I just entered a local half marathon in September.  Last time I entered one the wheels came off... lets hope for better luck this time.  There's plenty of time to build up really really slowly to it yet.  I'm hoping to go sub 2hrs assuming the course is flat-ish, but if I make it to race day and get all the way round with no injury, that'll do me!

Good luck with that.

Hi Guys (and Gals) sorry I've not been around, have had 'Lazyitus' for 11 days and not been running so felt ashamed to pop in

Yup, nice and easy should do it Daveo

I dream of a 25:52 Skip so I bow to you

HM4 how is the training coming on for Hook?

If I can drag myself out of bed tomorrow I hope to do a 13.1 mile LSR (fingers crossed then).

Hit & miss.  I really need to get my @rse into gear, however hopefully today's tempo run will sort that out.  Once it has warmed up down here.

27/04/2013 at 19:46

Did a 35 min tempo run so think my running is getting back on track.

29/04/2013 at 13:11

Well done on both counts.  Was that Basingstoke?


29/04/2013 at 20:34

Well done HM4 and glad to hear your getting back on track

Nice Park Run time skip, one day I might be able to call 6.3 miles in 59 minutes slow! Maybe by the end of the year I'll get that 10k time to around 60 minutes

Hi guys , 


well park run again this weekend and 25 minutes 43 secs and yes HM4 that is Basingstoke ,unfortunately although I completed and time was good I have twisted my knee half way and typhen really struggled maybe i should have stopped but no like an idiot i carried on so now currently it's heavily strapped and although I can hobble about I am unable to put pressure , so much for my planned 6 miler tomorrow , Im gutted 

hey ho maybe it's a way my body telling me to slow down 

well guys , hope you are all enjoying the weekend and your running isbetterthan mine

7th skip,

Yep, it's definitely your body telling you to slow down.


Did a double on Friday.  Should have been 8x400m intervals (morning) & then 3 miles late afternoon.  Instead it was 5x400m intervals & 3.1 miles.  I knew after the 4th one the next one would be a struggle and with the 3 miles in mind for the afternoon I decided to cut the intervals short.  It's stood me in good stead doing that as I've done an easy 5 miles this morning.

Long time no posts from me, but have had a read back.

7th Skip hope you recover quickly - sometimes we are so bloody minded we push through when our bodies are saying stop. Fingers crossed its a minor blip.

HM4 good to hear that you are back out there and by the sounds of it your training is going well - double sessions, crikey thats pretty tough going!

Andi did you get out for your 13.1 miler?

Daveo hopefully all the training will come together without any injury setbacks and you will get your sub 2hr.

Well I am now in training for Bupa 10k at the end of May am hoping that I will complete it in about 48mins so am doing some speed work for a change. My Parkrun pb is 23.30 so am hoping that 48 mins is doable?

I have also got some other longer races planned over the summer and I have now signed up for Chester Marathon in October - arrgghh what have I done! I am hoping that the longer evenings will help with the amount of training I will be doing.

Happy running everyone

Skip, hope there are no long lasting problems and yes, sometimes it's better to give up before injury so you can recover then continue.

HM4, well done on the double and raining things in so you had enough in the tnk for the 5 miles

Lisa,  no 13.1 miler from me (yet) and taken a few days off so I'm (hopefully) fresh for Marathon Training that starts tomorrow (with an easy 3 miler lol). Good luck with the 10k training and hope the speed training gets you that sub 48 minute time I did think about Chester as my parents are not far but opted for Loch Ness instead.

Thanks.  I did feel a bit drained afterwards.  Sub 48 sounds doable.


Thanks.  I've learned to be sensible the hard way.

I'm aiming for 59.59 this weekend at Bideford 10k. Ran a PB at my first Parkrun on Saturday, of 29.46, so it'll be tight whether I'll make it or not. Did a hilly HM on Sunday. Haven't got that next weekend, so I'm going for it

07/05/2013 at 17:48

Lisa123, I'm in Chester too. My marathon debut is 7 weeks on Saturday at the Giant's Head in Dorset. Oh sh1t

Welcome the thread.  Good luck.  I think it's going to be tight.  My 5k pb is 29:28 & my 10k pb 1:04:54.

07/05/2013 at 18:53

Whatever time I run will be a PB, as it's my first 10k. 10k portions of half marathons don't count for me
