ES-that's all i can manage

16/01/2013 at 07:37

Yesterday evening after driving through the centre of Bramhall, I spied a runner heading in the same direction. Moving along at about a steady 7.30mm pace, he was running effortlessly and looked lean, relaxed and fit. A momentary glance to my left suggested that this was none other than GBM. But how could this be? It certainly didn't look like he was 17lbs overweight. So it was either an optical illusion or perhaps the Ghost of GBM Past, or possibly the Ghost of GBM future......

BB--Bramhall? Lean and mean? 7.30 pace? Definitely an optical illusion or The Ghost of GBM future!  I did do 10 miles last night running to and from the track from Hazel Grove but i averaged about 8.30 pace and found it hard going. 

 

M--Count me and Eric in for the Mickledon Straddle. Anyone else fancy it?

Anyone else not received the 4 villages entry?

16/01/2013 at 19:34

JMC, I saw PPP outside your house intercepting your mail so you don't get your  entry, don't run and don't beat him again.

Where have all the 4V runners gone?  GBM, 4V was your idea to get everyone in one race...and now you have wimped out.  As HL would say, you are a knob!

16/01/2013 at 22:17

BHB--Yes you're quite right, i am a knob.  I'm unfit and overweight and I just didn't see the point of driving to Helsby to run a rubbish race and also run the risk of injury. So when someone offered to buy my place i didn't need to think too hard. But at least me promoting the 4V has kept a few of you fit and keen over the last few months. You can thank me next time you see me.

Saturday run

Meeting at Rose Hill 8 o'clock

4 x 5 mile on the MW. 

17/01/2013 at 08:04
BHB - I tried to get your one as well but the postman told me you collected your mail when you pick up your pension.

I am confident that I wont be running very fast on Sunday and am hoping the snow will provide an excuse when you all beat me!

JMC - I got mine last week.
17/01/2013 at 08:36
Jonah - I take it each 5 mile rep will start and finish at Rose Hill? I'm just thinking I can run there and back and just do 3 reps. Also, anyone who just wants a 5 or 10 miler can turn up too.
17/01/2013 at 08:58

ES- That was the plan

Maybe first one out easy then faster back and so on.

17/01/2013 at 11:23
Brilliant, see you on Saturday in the snow!
17/01/2013 at 11:49

ES- Just thought, 3 reps wouldn't work or you could cut through to your house via the rabbit on the MW.

17/01/2013 at 13:16

I reckon GBM saw the long range weather forecast before he tricked us all into entering 4V !

J8, unlike GBM you are not fat or lazy.  So why are you not running 4V?  I would have thought a 1/2 marathon would fit nicely with marathan training. 

17/01/2013 at 17:16

BHB- I had every intention of running it but getting "man flu" over Christmas has put my Boston training back 3 weeks.

So rather than just run it as a training run and get slated on here, I decided to give it a miss.

Looking at the weather forecast I think I made the right decision, you might need a pair of skis for that last down hill section.

Best of luck to all of you running.

17/01/2013 at 18:57

Hi all. My running is not great at all at the moment, what with Xmas and the fact I am going to New Zealand this time next week!! It's only 25-30 degrees there at the moment. I am so sad about that! 

I entered 4 Villages but there is no way I am fit enough nor have time to partake in it this weekend so I have a number going if anyone fancies running in sub zero temps in ice and snow, just let me know and I can get the number to you!

17/01/2013 at 19:13

Jonah - great reply!

17/01/2013 at 20:49

Good luck on the MW - it will be an ice rink I bet!
