PPP I meant to say you could join me for some of these, but I assume that was obvious. 

Regarding your comment, I find that the fastest I can run on my own is about MP.  I can't seem to push myself harder without others.  I find it harder still to do speed sessions on my own which probably explains why my shorter distance times never really improve during the summer.

BHB-or you're just getting older

JMC-well said, in my own little way, people like BB and myself have been doing the Hanson method, that plus strength training has improved my overall fitness and speed, unfortunately your pace is a little bit fast for me at the moment at those distances. As you say, the idea is to train on tired legs.

JMC - is that 19 miles every Thurs?  You Blistas are going to be wearing the track out..

Boggart Hole on Sunday?

Jonah not going to make it in the morning as I'm having to go into work and shift some more desks I'll run there and back.

J8 / RC - Cheers for what was a surprisingly speedy long run for me. Maybe I've turned a corner with the training. 4 Villages will be a good indicator.

FOAR/RC- Cheers for the run, I can't believe the pace compared to last weeks effort.

Boggart Hole Clough XC

Without doubt the muddiest, most energy sapping, shoe eating race I have ever done!

3 minutes slower than my previous best on this course! My weedy little legs just couldn't cope with the mud.

PPP - your absence was noted!

JMC - sounds good, I will try to make a few of the sessions.

BHB - I concur re the MP+ miles. We could arrange some tempo's (and sarq and NI And anyone else) around our neck of the woods Tuesdays maybe and then do the longer Thursday run with JMC's group.

anyway, perhaps we could discuss the options on Sunday.

JMC - xpost, sorry, I was toying with a LSR or the xc because I had thought the xc was saturday. I had to drive my eldest to Leigh for rugby sunday morning which was then cancelled so I decided to do a LSR when I got back so I could watch the football (boo hoo) and I could not be bothered to drive up there after the mornings debacle. So yeah, you are right, I wimped out!

RB - impressive running again!

Yes that was a tough course JMC, good effort after your recent ailments.  But great to see Wilmslow finishing the whole senior team of 6 plus vets team plus a V55 in front of JMC.  Great support out on the course from mini-JMC.  I thought I saw PPP earlier on but maybe it was his looky-likey.

GBM and Eric - M asked me to post this link again. It is on Sunday 3rd February at 10.30am.

GBM/ES-good luck, you'll need it, sorry, but navigation and ES don't exactly go hand in hand.

With my foot still inflamed with PF, I am just keeping to shorter distances or elliptical training for the next week or so. Consequently, I won't be running at Helsby 4V this Sunday. I have a place available if anyone would like it. Transfers can be made up through the end of today - 15 Jan - so let me know if you want this for yourself or a friend.

BB-sorry, to hear re. the problem, remember our conversation (just rest and treat etc. you're not going to lose any speed or fitness over a week or two), i was hoping to use you as a pace maker and sprint past you in the last 100 metres, just like training , it could be worse, you could put on 19 lbs in weight just like GBM

15/01/2013 at 13:26

Thanks, TB, You'll still get a chance to gallop past me at Grindleford, all being well.

15/01/2013 at 14:05

TB--Oi! Its17 lbs!!!!!!

15/01/2013 at 14:44

mort - our "Clash Of The Titans" at Wrexham is on! I did a few very encouraging flat miles at lunchtime, so we could be neck-and neck!
oh, and which Kit-Kat have you voted for?


15/01/2013 at 18:19

GBM-yea, but after today, it's probably going to be 19 lbs. If, you look at the Runners  World advert next to the thread, it tells you how to lose your belly-act fast it says.

BB-i've a dilemma, the Masters Nationals indoor 60m champs. are on the same day as Grindleford, they're in London (Lee Valley), seems a long way to go for 8 secs. of sprinting

15/01/2013 at 21:23

TB - why are you planning on doing just half of it and treating it as a training run?
