BHB/OMOTH - just looked at results - didn't realise you'd WON!

Next XC is Wythenshawe Park 1st Dec.  I find fell shoes (e.g. Innovs / Walsh / Running Bear) best for Machester League as there is often a few bits that are hard ground.  Also you get more grip going downhill.  I have Innov X-talon this year.  Trail shoes would be ok at Wythenshawe but on muddier courses you can end up carrying a lot of mud.  XC times aren't great really but OK for me and JMC when we can claim it's a family activity.

Don't forget the Stockport 10 meeting tonight!

Seagull- I would go out tonight but I haven't got a stitch to wear.

Oh very funny. Don't even think about it, you know what I'm talking about!
12/11/2012 at 13:38
I don't know which is the more exciting prospect; another clip of ES dancing or Mort naked.

Either would beat another graph from the BOS though.

Seagull- I haven't got the technical expertise to do it but maybe GBM has.He knows so much about these things.........

ES- time to...Panic
12/11/2012 at 15:03

PPP--I've just had a look and i'm afraid the quality is very poor. It's grainy and its difficult to tell whats going on. The video of Eric dancing is rubbish too!

Is this the video you are talking about?

Grindleford entries now open - https://www.sientries.co.uk/event.php?event_id=882

As you put together your spring marathon plans, you might be interested in this article on the Hansons' Marathon Schedule: http://www.runnersworld.com/race-training/new-year-new-you-way-renegades?page=single I'm sure many of you are already familiar with it.

I don't mention this to promote or advocate it, just food for thought. The plan is perhaps best known for the element that caps the longest run at 16 miles. It is hard to argue with the success that the athletes who have followed it have had.

Of course a weekly parkrun can't hurt either!!

Entered Grindleford last night. Almost 200 entries already.

Might do Liverpool or Blackpool instead of Wilmslow. It's very expensive and you have to have a degree in nuclear physics to be able to navigate around the entry application, only certain types of cards accepted too. Worse than trying to get Olympic tickets. Sorry for my constructive feedback RB!! Happy to take any S10 feedback from you!

Eric- Yes you are right about Wilmslow- I remember a similar problem a few years back so I gave up which was good in my case as it meant one less wasted race entry! Why pamper Wilmslow's complexity when..... (sorry I'll shut up now )

14/11/2012 at 23:00

ES/Mort-tbh, i came to the same conclusion

15/11/2012 at 06:47
I'm gonna do Wilmslow. Don't forget to factor in travel costs if you do Blackpool / Liverpool.
15/11/2012 at 06:52
FOAR - Maurice Holmes is that spin bowler I was talking about (although I've decided I don't like cricket this morning!) :/
