Marathon training starts tomorrow!!! Any long runs planned for the morning? 

04/01/2013 at 09:52

Clairster, I'm not bothered as I'm not using it, so yes he can wait.

GBM- Meeting UB at Rose Hill at 8 o'clock in the morning 20 mile hilly loop.

It's one of MH's run's with some of the Morrisons run thrown in for good measure, it will not be fast, my last 16 mile run avg 9.30min/mile. Just about getting over my cold which I have had well before Christmas.

All welcome.

Anyone running early ish Sunday?

(Not) Looking (forward) to do first 20 since London.

Looks like Sarq has responded to ES's desire to get the thread moving with more entertaining involving this wonderful saga of the Garmin and it's accessories. Can't wait for the next instalment. Will it be left in the garden, is there a footpod? It has filled the void left by "Homeland" and then some!

Jonah8/UB--See you tomorrow.

J8/UB/GBM - I'll join you tomorrow if thats OK. J8 - Do we stay on the road. Just thinking about shoe selection.

DTS - Hit The Trail interests me although may not be wise after 20 miles the day before.

FOAR- Road shoes will be fine.

04/01/2013 at 14:37

sarq - fab

clairster/anybody else - what are you doing on Sunday morning? I was thinking of driving to Cragg Vale and recce-ing the last few miles of the Hebden route - just 8-10M at an easy pace, shouldn't take much longer than 2 hrs...

Good turnout for the first"JC" run, tough route, next time we run it, it should be a little quicker, a few of us still suffering from "man flu".

UB- I've downloaded the Garmin plug in but stumped now!!

05/01/2013 at 13:16
J8/GBM/FOAR/SARQ/RC - Thanks for the run today. That was tough! Really struggling for breath on everything flat or uphill. Can't wait to shake off the lurgy..

J8 - I'll give you a bell..

Thanks to all for the run! A lack of fitness, being overweight and feeling a bit rough made that an extremely difficult run. Tough route!! Plus my back, bum and hamstrings tightened up as they do when i'm knackered and so i had to shuffle the last 8 miles back to Rose Hill. The last 8 miles took me 1 hour 37 mins. Oh dear! 


An early contender for 'Worst description of a route in 2013' goes to Jonah8 for "Once we get up this hill (Werneth Low) its downhill all the way back to Rose Hill!"

Great run this morning 19.2miles. And we only took 1 wrong turn courtesy of jonahs navigation skills. 7.58mm. Jonah I've got it on fetch so you can have a look at the route. The extra bit through glossop looks about 3 miles further.
Jonah must have lost around 1/2 stone in sweat.

JS - really sorry but M's mum has reminded us that we promised to go and watch his niece in a panto at the Carver Theatre next Saturday evening and she has bought us tickets so we will have to miss the Trotters do. We will still call in for a drink after the panto though. Please pass on our apologies to Jenny - I know how annoying it is when you are trying to organise something and people say they will come and then give backword.


06/01/2013 at 20:14

SW - No Probs, thanks for letting me know, I'll pass the message on to Jenny. See you after the panto.

07/01/2013 at 09:40

SARQ - I have found the garmin lead and also a serial to usb i will drop both of at yours thurs evening if that is ok?

07/01/2013 at 15:09

Sneaky park run result by BHB at the weekend. Maybe he is not such a Has Been. Might have to start getting worried about 4-Villages.

07/01/2013 at 18:26

Daz's BG - 17th/18th May

if anybody would like to offer their services, please PM me your email address


(P.S. even if you don't think you'll be fit enough for hill support, you can still be useful, as I'm looking for road supporters also  )

After another thrilling installment of clarister and SARQs "where should I leave my Garmin", I don't think my post can compare.  Fifty shades of beige.

I've been doing some decent training recently and the parkrun JMC refers to was the middle of a long overall not too bad.  May try another parkrun this weekend but this time without running there first, although feeling a bit grotty today so see how that goes. 

Any predictions for 4 Villages?  I'll go for somewhere between 1:17 and 1:20.  It will be my first proper race for months, so won't know what shape until I start.  I think I am more likely to beat PPP than JMC though.

BHB - 1:18:xx

08/01/2013 at 00:03

BHB-what WAVA will that get you?, that's assuming that you get the time . At the moment i'll be pleased with anything under 1.40 as i've not run fast beyond 7 miles the last 12 months. It as good to see some of the good runners at the track tonight, Eric and GBM came along later.
