GBM - what happened to your strategy of keeping a decent base level of training going and staying fit rather than your usual Yo-Yo approach!

Although I haven't listened yet, I've just seen that this week's Marathon Talk (www.marathontalk.com) interviewee is a guy called Derek Ivens. Anyone ever heard of him? Could there be more than one?

JMC--Yes i was full of good intentions after Amsterdam but ended up having a well earned rest period instead. I was supposed to be getting back into running a few weeks ago but i've been really busy at work plus a friend of mine is over from Australia for three weeks and work and seeing him are far more important than running. My VLM training plan starts on Xmas Eve and once VLM is done i will definitely keep a decent base level of training going and stay fit rather than my usual Yo-Yo approach!

BHB - got a chest infection which is hindering me and have been keeping the effort levels v low this week, so undecided about the Ribble. Also my eldest is doing birthday related stuff in the afternoon as well, so would need to get off sharpish. 50-50 I'd say

Sarq- would like to join you Saturday, all being well. What time should I meet you at the Liz, or should I drive to Tesco's? I need to be back for 10 and only want to do 16 or so.
20/12/2012 at 10:15

Mort/Anyone interested - I've got a blind lady asking for a guide to do the Adlington Winter Warmer. She just needs to hold onto the guides arm and isnt bothered if they've guided before or not. Her time is predicted as 62 mins. Are you free and can you help? Let me know!

20/12/2012 at 11:24
Sorry kwaka I am working. I was disappointed not to be able to do the race myself as its a great idea what with not having to rush and still being able to win
20/12/2012 at 12:50

PPP you could get to the Liz and I'll drive there.

I'll depart at 7.50, I won't wait for you if you're much later

Or you could pick me up on the way, I'm not bothered which. The route will take around 2hrs - 2'10 I think so you'll be back home around 10.15-20. I'm sure you're OH won't mind.

M says he is doing Mickledon Straddle as last  race before he goes under the knife with his knee. I needless to say will not and will be sticking to tarmac.

Good to see Jenny Knass' name in yesterday's AW in the list of  top ranked  UK women over marathon distance in 2012. What a comeback.

21/12/2012 at 11:52

kwaka - if you get really stuck give me a shout and i might be able tohelp out..how far is it?

21/12/2012 at 13:49

I was working behind the bar in the sports club (Disley) last night and saw one of the Stockport Harriers dressed in what I can only describe as a blue funnel - what on earth was he supposed to be, when he danced I thought he had epilepsy??! 

Also the cute boy dressed as George Michael - does he live locally?

There seemed to be a lot of folk with short hair and check shirts on too, lumberjacks or wannabe lesbians?

 

You guys sure know how to party - ciao.

21/12/2012 at 14:30

Paul (I know who you really are!) --I was either The Shard or a blue cone!!!! I will take the epilepsy comment as a compliment!  The folk with short hair and check shirts on started off as lumberjacks but turned into lesbians when JMC turned up.

What was wrong with my check shirt?

GBM - did WVM ever play your Deacone Blue request or not!
21/12/2012 at 19:01
SARQ- don't hang around for me. Still rough so may not make it out tomorrow. No fun.
22/12/2012 at 07:51
I thought he was George Michael too but apparently he was some bloke off x factor. (can't remember name).
22/12/2012 at 11:26
Ub, Ppp, j8 you did we'll to stay at home, miserable, wet day and jmc took me, kev, his dog and mark on a tour of wernerth low which conveniently finished outside his front door. Nice extension btw.
