...And me...
Just thought I'd get us together for a pre match team talk. Come on. We can do it. 7:30 min miling will get us in at 1:37:30. No slackers in our team. <Shall we have a group hug before hand!>

Edit button, edit button...Venom, I apologise for calling you Venon!

I am feeling more and more positive about this! Hope I don't crawl in, in the end!!!

Team spirit is fine, just so long as we don't get all 'I'm a celebrity... Get me out of here' and keep on kissing each other!
26/09/2002 at 10:28
We could all tail gate each other!!! Like a snake weaving through the masses!

Did I mention kissing, Jon? I don't think so. Seriously, after running last night with a fellow club runner, I realised it helps me to run with (or near) someone to keep the pace going...
26/09/2002 at 10:37
oh... ok (look of glaszed disappointment on my face, shoulders slumped forwards)
26/09/2002 at 10:47
Jon, My feelings towards you are motherly... I can't speak for Venom, Brendon, Little Fill, and Spans
26/09/2002 at 10:49
Ok... I think I can get over this with time!

I'm a little wary about jetting off to fast a the start, so it'd be good for others to keep a rein on me (so you can be motherly then!)

Just hold onto my apron strings Jon!

This sounds like an Unofficial RW pacing group.
Snicks are you gonna hold a giant lolly up with 1.40 on ? ;-)
26/09/2002 at 11:21
Snicks, I foolishly had it in mind to follow your apron strings, but I think its too big a leap for me. What time do you reckon now?
26/09/2002 at 12:03
BK, it might be a bit of a leap for me, too. Sub 1:40 is what I'm aiming for, even though everyone is telling me not to race it, etc, due to doing Dublin on the 28th.
Cougie, I like the lolly idea. Everyone in my pacing group has to wear romper suits!
26/09/2002 at 12:03
Realise the romper suit thing makes me more Madame Snicks, than mummy snicks... right, back to work!

Snicks, I'll certainly run with you if you like. Jon, isn't your 10k time in the 41 - 42 region? In that case, you should certainly be able to go sub 1:40.

Based on my 10k time of 43:26 last week (sorry, I had to mention that again!), Bob Glover's tables predict 1:36 or so. But I haven't run since Sunday (tube strikes Tues and Weds meant I got home late and tired) and I've just come down with a stinking cold, so we'll see.

But a group of us running at constant 7:30 pace sounds good to me. Count me in.

This sounds good as 7:30 would be ideal for me for at least the first 10 miles. Do you mind if I join you. I managed 74:20 for 10 miles at the Great South Run but if I fold as badly as I did at the Burnham Beeches half then I'll lose you all at the end
26/09/2002 at 12:52
I'll try and be there with you too, but if this cold persists I think that I might be aiming for a sub 2hr instead!

Also I think that that rules out the kissing as well, unless anyone wants to join me in my misery...
26/09/2002 at 12:57
Definitely join us BK, we'll drag you round. No dropping out in the last few miles allowed though :-)

Spans, I'm with you in cold misery. Very tempted to take tomorrow off work ill to give myself a chance to recover.

26/09/2002 at 12:59
Thanks, hope you both feel better soon
26/09/2002 at 13:04
Hi Venom, yes, you're right, but bearing in mind it's my first half I am not entirely sure as to my capabilities!!! I'll jsut have to see. I don't really want to put any more pressure on myself than I already have done, so I thought 'lets be realistic Jon!'
26/09/2002 at 13:06
We might look like a pack of wolves if we stick together!!!
