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!!
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!"
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.
SW - No Probs, thanks for letting me know, I'll pass the message on to Jenny. See you after the panto.
SARQ - I have found the garmin lead and also a serial to usb lead..so i will drop both of at yours thurs evening if that is ok?
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.
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 run...so 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
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.
Yorkshire marathon in York in October. Should be flat.
LOL BHB - it really is thrilling isnt it
I seem to have obtained an entry for 4 Villages..eeek!
PPP - I'm going to give up counting the days and weeks until Season 3 of Homeland. Can't wait for the next installment of Colombo in Stockport now....
And that was from a teacher on his 2nd day back, when in theory he should be snowed under!
Perhaps BHB really is flying!
PPP, how do you find the time?
BHB has been training for months to make sure he's gives me a good kicking at 4 villages, with the added bonus of taking PPP's and possibly JMC's scalp. There's no excuses if he doesn't.I'm way off last years fitness, so 4V is a good benchmark to see where I'm at (I won't be using it as a training run). I reckon I'll be around 1.23, anything better I'll be pleased, if it's worse then it will be a sh*t run from myself. I'll do the no watch thingy so at the 10 mile point I'll know how it's going.

Are you stalking me Inspector Plod? I thought I saw some scruffy looking man in a flashers mac watching me. I'm glad you felt concerned enough to check me out on Fetch. Am I doing enough tempo runs, are they too slow or too fast etc....
How did I manage to make it a long run when I was back home soon after 10? Well, I met ES after the parkrun and I did a few miles on his magic treadmill before leaving. And how many miles are required for it to be a long run, for a non marathon runner? (I did a 16 mile run the day after, and I would call that extra long!)
I will see how I go at 4V and if I do OK may do a marathon anyway, but as you have pointed out my toe is giving me some jip so don't want to overdo things at my age.
Anyone else going to post an expected 4V time? Is there a vets team prize? Could we get it? 4V attracts some top runners so maybe a long shot.
And JMC, he's an art teacher. "Here's a bunch of flowers now go away and draw it" - how hard can that be?
