Gbm sorry I didn't make it to track but I had no transport

J8-no, didn't get in VLM (7 years consec. i've not made it through the ballot),  thank you for the offer, i've done it for the last 6 years so give someone else the opportunity, if i change my mind, i'll throw my name in the hat at SH.

JMC - I'll take a sub 3.30! Just can't get motivated for Sunday. Feel fit and healthy but not kept to a proper structured and disciplined training plan.
04/10/2012 at 23:20
Thanks for the votes of confidence guys - I'll try not to let anyone down!

JMC - ES had bloody well better go under 3:30 - I don't know if there's a team prize but if there is we should be in with a shout as long as he chooses suitable shorts for the conditions, VL's calf holds out and I run like I did at Lake V and not at the relays!

VL - how is the calf?

RB - good luck at Congleton.

Good luck to Daz and TST and anyone else racing this weekend too.

Jonah8--No problem. I won the V40 category too!  

I'm feeling a bit rough again after last nights efforts. Spoke to Dave Turnbull who told me to back off the running. I know he is right but i'm in 'scared of losing fitness' mode! I will get tomorrows 17/18 miler out of the way and maybe back off a bit more than was intended over the final 2 weeks. 

Eric--You'll be up for it by Sunday morning! The weather looks perfect!!

Good luck to all racers this weekend!!

JMC - I might be up for joining you for option 2. Depends how tomorrows ride goes but keep me posted on any plans.

GBM - Well done on the win!

Fantastic effort GBM, hopefully no one else will turn up for Amsterdam. Really think you should get a late entry for Chester so you can show Eric how to run a marathon!

GBM, excellent, obviously my mind games have worked, looking forward to a sub 2.50 at Amsterdam, now you're being coached by Dave Turnbull.

05/10/2012 at 12:05

SARQ--Yes, without your mind games i would be struggling to go sub 4! I'm going to set off at 2.50 pace but i'm confident that i will be able to pick it up 2nd half and push for a 2.45.  

05/10/2012 at 12:14

Eric-surely with your ability you're talking sub 2.30, not 3.30, i've not trained properly for about 6 weeks, and i think i could just  about manage 3.30 or is this reverse psychology

GBM-the good news, apart from your marvellous win, is that i've found TST, he's migrated over to Facebook.

JS-didn't the recent problem resolve itself or is it still the hip problem?

Good Luck to all tarmac-racers this weekend

I shall be pottering down Goyt Valley, toiling up to Windgather Rocks, admiring the views on the trog up to Shining Tor, sliding on my @rse down to the Goyt, then lumbering back over to the Burbage Institute for soup & cakes


05/10/2012 at 12:58

TB--He's confusing everyone on there now is he? 

05/10/2012 at 14:18


Re. the rejection for VLM, it appears that they don't send a letter out now with the magazine, so what do we do re. the SH places?

05/10/2012 at 16:22

TB - there should have been a single sheet with the magazine saying ' you have been rejected'. It isn't personalised, though. But even if it had been, would the Club even know who The Broker is?

Enjoy the Windgather DTS.  The stone paving on the way up to Shining Tor is harder than tarmac.  But it should be nice and muddy in places.  Good practice for the main event .... the XC season

Bad luck TB - I thought after a number of ballot fails they let you in on some sort of unlucky ticket.  Otherwise tuck in behind NI on Sunday and grab yourself a championship slot.

05/10/2012 at 17:37
Gbm are you still running in the morning half 8 at ros?? hill
05/10/2012 at 17:45

Yes, see you then. 

05/10/2012 at 18:19

Jonah8/FOAR/Anyone who fancies joining us--I've sorted out a 13 mile road route for tomorrow. Just letting you know in case you want to add a few miles on before and/or afterwards. 

05/10/2012 at 19:58

Busy weekend of running coming up.  Good luck to everyone running.  I think that Bash holds the Harriers marathon record at 2:19 - NI, that's your target!

Not a particular objective of mine but I am on page 1 of Fetch training league for October!  Even higher than NI, although UB is above me.
