Afternoon all,

Welcome to all of the newcomers Deva Duck,Liz,mathschick- are you a Sussex based runner?,limper & any others I have missed.

I am somewhat worried that young LLB has already been sussed out as the noisy one!!!!! LOL!

Ecky-Don't worry about the bad behaviour of last night & don't wsate the wine today and tomorrow are still days off for most of us!

Jude-well done on your 16 miler that is fantastic.

Well I am back form my very very hilly race that included 2 hills that were so steep you had to walk up them + one that had 275 down up and then 275 steps up!

I took it easy and didn't get het up about times- i just enjoyed myself. The race distance turned out to be 7.78 miles and the total climb up hills was 1726 feet- we also ran up part of the hill that they are using for the cycling road race in 2012 & I am sure that I was overtaken by Mark Cavendish on his bike!

I have no idea whee I finished but the time was a very slow 1.22.08 but bearing in mind the steepness of the hills & I took it easy I am happy with that.

I do feel fine now....buty, will endeavour to make a dr's appointment on Tuesday....

Have agreat time everyone....and thanks for all of your concern.....

AF - well done today and glad you were ok, but you must go to the dr!

I am not sussex based - based near Nottingham actually, just picked that marathon because I didn't get into London and it was a good date - beginning of Easter holidays so means I have 2 weeks to recover afterwards!

01/01/2012 at 17:44
20 miles in 3 35 is really good sub 4 30 Marathon is in your grasp.
01/01/2012 at 17:52

Oh there you all are!!

Happy New Year Crac team!!

Deva Duck wrote (see)

Thanks for the welcome.  Am doing my home town half in Chester which is not until May, but I wanted to make my first attempt at my local race and it is flat  In the meantime I will be entering a few 10ks over the next few months and will chip in with a few parkruns.

You don't sound quiet to me loulabell

Ha ha ha ha!!

AF - Hope you're doing OK.

'German Cake' in the oven as we speak!   A Piece of Cake is a most wonderful thing, in ways some might not have thought of:


Oh by the CRAC Gods, would you look at that beauty?

Then there's this:


Two entirely different types of Cake.


01/01/2012 at 18:10
I'll take the first example of cake thank you very much RR

Loula - that was an excellent run you put in today. I've heard good things of the Gloucester Mara, although wasn't it cancelled last year due to the weather?
I'm so glad you are a very quiet person - you make me feel less self conscious about my own shyness

Well done for your race AF. Sounds like it was a toughy. Which one was it?
I'm a Sussex girl BTW, even if Mathschick isn't.

This is a busy thread! Please excuse me not being able to keep up too well. Broadband on the lily-pad can be a bit temperamental!
01/01/2012 at 18:17
limper where are you from then?

mathschick- I have never run a marathon aiming to do one when I hit the big 50.....in 2014.....or unless I get persuaded by people on this thread.

RR- I feel fine now thanks.

SL- Happy New Year too you too
01/01/2012 at 18:22
By the seaside AF. Not far along from Portsmouth.
You local to me?

Wait two years until you do a marathon? Nah, do it this year. Gaw on, gaw on gaw on!
01/01/2012 at 18:49
limper - I am near Horsham. I want to get my 10k an 1/22 marathon times down before I do a marathon.
01/01/2012 at 19:18
Loula, I was very brave and sorted out my blister. May I recommend savlon's advanced healing gel for all those running ultras or liable to get cuts, scrapes, sunburn, blisters. It works wonders on kiddies minor bumps too. Almost as magic as calpol
Limper, AF, I am north Hampshire. I did my first 10k along the seafront in southsea.
Mathschick, any chance you are a teacher....
01/01/2012 at 19:31
limper, it may well have been cancelled due to bad weather indeed...thats why i havnt paid entry yet
01/01/2012 at 19:39
limper the race I did was the Trionium Nacker Carcker starting around Box Hill in Dorking.

I have nearly finished reading my Dean Karnazes book...im in luuurve

01/01/2012 at 19:47

by eck - yes, I teach maths in a secondary school

AF - I think that is a tough race? Someone on one of the other threads did it in a gorilla suit!

01/01/2012 at 20:19
Mathschick, it's only teachers that want their races at the start of the holidays. I am planning mine so the kids are at school and I can spend the day recovering!
RR, that cake looks diet busting. My daughter bought me a huge Christmas pudding yesterday while I was racing. Bless her. I didn't have the heart to tell her I was going on a very strict diet.
01/01/2012 at 20:59

 I want that Cake. Yummy Yummy.

Mind you I could do without any more sweet stuff. Just had Chicken Dinner with Syrup Sponge for afters.I am proper stuffed..
