not the same epic importance as GBM's sub-3 mara, but I went sub-80 at Preston 10M this morning - 1:19:59, oh yes

my splits were all over the place though - might post them later if they're not tooo embarrassing...

Well done Daz! When are you having a crack at a marathon?

18/11/2012 at 18:42

Daz--Well done!! 1.19.59 is Hollywood stuff and much more important than my sub 3  that even i'm bored of now!

Daz - What a great day for racing, well done.

PPP - I called to collect the watch strap, thanks. There was no car on the drive so I didn't knock on. Don't want you thinking I was being anti-social!

it was indeed perfect race weather: cool, sunny, no wind
you'd think 1:19:59 would indicate some under-conrol/regular splits, but er... no!
7:36 - oops!
8:19 (slight amount of uphill)
7:59 for 39:53 at halfway
8:14 (oh deary me, couple of dodgy miles, 21 secs over, need a couple of 7:50's to finish, and it's that blasted "uphill" mile coming  )
8:06 (not bad, but need to finish in 7:30ish  )
7:32 - held this last mile together remarkably well - this "training" lark really works! - looked down at my watch just after crossing the chip mat (had started it as I crossed the mat at the start) to see 1:20:01 so anxious wat til official resultswent up... paged nervously down the results... past 1:20 gun time... there's my name... 1:20:14... chip time... 1:19:59

can now aim for sub-1:45 for half-mara, but still no desire to do a full

DTS- superb! Jonahesque effort that!

JS- glad you got it OK, was a bit worried one of the kids had moved it.

Great running DTS.  I can't imagine there'll be many last mile=fastest mile stories from S10.

That's a good time BHB but you appear to have lost to a child?

Thanks for pointing that out RB.  I guess it depends which way you look at it...he could have been thinking "I can't be beaten by someone old enough to be my Dad"!

I possibly should have beaten him but he flew up the steps on the last lap whilst I tip-toed up them like a wimp.  I guess he created a 20 metre gap (as he also did on the first lap, so I had been warned).  Waiting for PPP or someone else to give it a go - interested to see how others run it. 

DTS, those splits aren't too inconcistent and to run the fastest time for your last mile is always a good thing.

Manchester marathon relay- might be fun to get a team together for stockport!

For all you New Balance trainer wearers you can save up to 54% here

BHB - I think he would have been thinking Grandad! yes I do need to get it done. So maybe if I do it next week he could get beaten by his Dad but still beat his Grandad. Although I reckon my own mother would beat me at 9am on a saturday.

Manchester marathon relay looks like it could be fun a week after London. But it is a ??120 per team which, unlike the course, is a little steep.

Plod- I didn't see the cost- Best to stick to x country then!

Please can I remind you all to sponsor my fantastic tache. You will be grateful of my efforts when you need your prostate zapped with a bit of radiotherapy.

Obviously it doesn't require a load of effort to not shave my top lip so am not expecting significant amounts but every little helps.

And the link!

I'm not surprised there have been no postings since that picture. The kids saw it last night and subsequently had nightmares and I've not eaten since!
20/11/2012 at 14:48
Eric-- I reported it to the moderator!
