This Thursdays 'GBMs Track 10k' might not happen due to illness/mard-arseness. (Not that anyone was actually going to join me) I've had some sort of virus since last Thursday and so my sessions since then haven't been great. Thursdays 5 mile tempo was ended after 1.5 miles, Saturdays long run was shorter and slower than it was supposed to be and last nights track session was aborted halfway. I was hoping it would have cleared up by now but i'm actually feeling worse today. No need to panic yet though as Amsterdam is 19 days away and surely i will be feeling ok by then! He-He! (Nervous giggle!

GBM - I thought it was the chips that did for you last night at track!

02/10/2012 at 13:23

SW - I don't think we were meant to eat them, I thought they were going into the goody bags!!

02/10/2012 at 15:46

SW--It was the chips that kept me going for the first half. 

04/10/2012 at 08:34

Go on then ... I'm entered for Four Villages.  It always seems like a good idea at this time of year.  Then after Xmas full of cold and mince pies it doesn't look so clever.  It was blowing a hurricane last year.

04/10/2012 at 08:50
RB - will you stop for a bit again, so I can catch you up please?
04/10/2012 at 09:45

PPP--I've been saying that to everyone for years!

I'm feeling slightly better today so i think i will have a bash at a track 10k tonight. I will start off at a slightly slower pace, see how i feel then pick it up if i can. All welcome, 25 laps of the track will be fun! 

04/10/2012 at 10:20

Will join you for a few as my legs feel fine, obviously didn't try hard enough on Sunday!!

04/10/2012 at 12:58

Jonah8--Ok see you later. I'm getting there for 6.30 ish and starting the 10k at 7pm. Should be done by 8.45.

04/10/2012 at 14:15

Am thinking of going across to Chester to watch NI win on Sunday and Eric get under 3:30!.

Two options

1) Drive across with bikes and cycle part of course, then drive home

2) Get train from Picaddilly, watch NI win and then cycle back to Stockport (45 miles)

Anyone else interested?

04/10/2012 at 15:03
JMC- Interested? yes not half. Please keep me informed of your decision as I can barely stand the suspense.

Actually, I get teary eyed thinking about the moment we joined hands and crossed the line together...

BTW, what are you having for dinner?
04/10/2012 at 15:25

PPP - You Knob!!!!

If the last sentence said "Is anyone else interested in joining me" would your small Southern arty, farty brain have understood that?

04/10/2012 at 18:21

I like the idea of watching NI win Chester but I have to defend my title at the big race of the day Congleton Half on the same morning .  

PPP - a couple of years ago I did stop for a lie down at Four Villages near 11 miles and only just stumbled down to the finish.  But this year faced my demons there and ran 73.  As ever I'll roll the dice on the day.  If you go out hard, blowing up is just one possibility - ask the chaffinch.

But it's great you're getting a decent team out for 4V.

Proud moment at the track earlier as, for the first time ever, i won a race!  Details such as 'who i beat' and' how many entered the race' aren't important as you can only beat who turns up! 

Poacher--Thanks for being my pacemaker for the first 5k and for another mile later on. 

And to everyone i beat--Tough luck losers!!! Sorry, i'm a bad winner!

Obviously the large number of under 14s who lapped us did not know they were in a "race"...
