JMC- Interesting article, anybody want to buy some new trainers

FOAR - Meeting GBM at Rose Hill again, then running to Woodbank to do the park run.

29/11/2012 at 16:53

FOAR/Anyone--SATURDAY MORNING RUN! Same as last week- Meet at Rose Hill at 8am, run 5 miles to Woodbank Park, do Park Run, run back to Rose Hill then maybe a few miles on the MW. Looking to do about 16 miles.

Jonah - I've put a Course map on the facebook Event page.

Here's the info: 

The start area will be at the cross roads of Wood Lane West/East/South/North, outside the Miners Arms. The finish area will be on the Canal path just before the kissing gate, next to the Lyme Breeze.

Route: Starting from the Miners Arms – Wood Ln Sth – Schoolfold Lane – Macclesfield Canal – Hole House CP – Middlewood Way – Coppice CP – Shrigley Rd – Hagg Farm path – Macclesfield Canal

Hope you can make it.

SW-lucky escape, hope you're ok.

J8-keep an open mind, i think part of the BHF report is based on the Scandinavian study of ultra running over the last 20 years and the affect of long distance on the heart, still it's good for the manufacturers of pacemakers.

TB - since you're probably the only one on this thread older than I am, I hope that your comments aren't just wishful thinking. Scary article.

With possible PF, falling trees (hope you're OK SW - could have been so much worse) and now increased mortality rates for older runners, I might give this up and take up smoking and drinking.....

 Its a good job I am  hefty and have a big thick skull  - if I was a delicate little thing it would have been worse. Was a bit of a shock though - one minute trotting along on autopilot thinking about what I was going to have for my dinner and next lying under a tree with a sore head.

Damn trees - some clever arse at work has already started calling me Twiggy.

SW - Forrest Bump? I could go but you would get sycamore rubbish jokes i am sure.
29/11/2012 at 22:15

BB-you may be older than most of the threadites, but you look and run like one of the youngest, it's certainly not wishful thinking, i took more than a passing interest, when the fellrunner i regularly train with developed a problem, i'll elaborate when i next see you but i think life's a balance (hence the extra rest day)

SW-thank goodness for having a thick skull

Interesting article JMC I'd be interested to hear about your test sometime.  I always thought I'd be ok if I stayed below 50% of NI's mileage.

See you all at Wythenshawe Park.

30/11/2012 at 12:41

But according to this article, running for an hour per day is fine

Does JMC's study include that old chestnut of being struck by a tree like SW?  What a lucky escape you had. 

Mort I gave the money for the 4V to J8 last night who is going to give it to GBM who is going to give it to you.  If you don't get the £20 then blame them.

J8, fyi splits were 6:23; 6:14; 6:11; 6:18; 6:15 and 6:24.  I think the differences are because 4 laps in lane 2/3 is more than a mile so some of my these mile splits would have had more slow than fast. Nonetheless good effort!

Quite an impressive range of running routes on my Garmin this week. Oslo, London Docklands and finally Stockport Harriers track. I'm afraid it won't include Wythenshawe Park however - sorry JMC.

Seems like you're damned if you do and damned if you don't! We're all gonna die someday so you might as well do what you enjoy while you can.

Is the XC at 2:30pm tomorrow btw? I don't want to get the start time wrong like I did at Woodbank last winter!


30/11/2012 at 17:28

NI - yes, the Senior/Junior/Vet Men's Race starts at 2.30pm tomorrow. Park near the track.

30/11/2012 at 17:32

Good Luck XC-ers!
I might've come along to watch, but I'm going to see City vs Everton

30/11/2012 at 17:43
NI - BB is joking, it starts at 2:35... Honest guv.
30/11/2012 at 20:39

All the best to XCers.

J8/GBM - I'll do the same as last week i.e run to Rose Hill and meet you there then straight home after park run.See you in the morning.



30/11/2012 at 21:34

good luck XC'ers

Flapjacks have been made to help sustain the S10 folks next away that weekend and cant be there to actually help out

30/11/2012 at 21:39

clairster- You've ruined it for GBM now. I think he was hoping to 'dispose' of it all before the weekend. I told him I would give it to CC and WITGB for safekeeping as they are more trustworthy

Good effort Clairster.  Morticia - keep them away from GBM.

FOAR - are you doing the Stockport 10 reccie in the morning?  Anyone else?  It will be a really easy pace.  Because of putting the resident signs up on the first estate it took nearly an hour to do the first 3 miles last year and then an hour for the remaining 7 miles.

Also, does anyone want to assist Brian in collecting all the signage after the S10 next week?  Mr S is helping him set it up but then has to disappear to witness humiliation first hand.  Maybe one of those people who is actually running the race and wants to give something back!

UB (and anyone else) - do you want any involvement next week?

Goody bag packing from 10am next Saturday.
