Tempo run for me tomorrow and I'm running a marathon. Looks like I've got my training bob on!

Please can someone who lives in the sticks (M6, TST etc) give a snow report. Is there enough for sledging?

BHB- you're training too slow, by doing longer runs, you should be doing something like 16x400m and 8x800m, for 5K and 3x2000m and 2x3000m for 10K

Stupid modern technology

You are probably right TB.  I think I'll start track sessions next week.  Did a parkrun last week and will probably start doing one a month or so.

13/02/2013 at 23:39
BHB-6 weeks at the track (quality sessions) and you should get the odd PB
Mort-having problems?
BB-had a reply from JW, he's looking for a team manager for the day, he can't make it, you would be superb!
14/02/2013 at 10:16

TB, I can't imagine that I will get any PBs now.  The only one that I think I could get is marathon as I have only run two, but I am not motivated to run another.  10k will be very difficult and 5k almost impossible. 

14/02/2013 at 10:51
It's possible to knock a few seconds of your 5K PB, just by specific training i.e run speed sessions twice a week, say Monday/Thursday and every fourth week or so, go for a fast park run-not every week because you'll be disappointed. Also, do you do any strength training with weights? fit a couple of sessions in a week and you'll notice the difference. Also, after every longish run, say minimum of 5 miles, you should be doing 10x100m sprints (20m slower, 60m fast, 20m slower) to finish off with. All of this still helps to getting a good half-full marathon time.

TB--You're copying and pasting ability never fails to impress me! 

14/02/2013 at 13:21

mort - I just did 3M "race pace practice": 7:45, 8:05, 8:00
took them "smooth and relaxed"
hardly broke sweat really
lovely sunny day along the (Bridgewater) canal
only one hissing swan to contend with



14/02/2013 at 14:32

Oooooooh get you Slug 'smooth and relaxed' 'hardly broke sweat' !!!!!

I am not running at the mo due to knee/thigh issues but at least I will be well-rested for Sunday (or still injured  )

14/02/2013 at 15:15

GBM-in my retirement, my time allows me to explore, read, investigate the science behind running, so that i may pass on these gems of wisdom for others who don't have the time (too busy paying taxes), that said i still can't get smileys.
How may i be of assisstance to you? please bear in mind no offensive comments. (wink smiley)

I've just got smileys back

JMC -only just seen your post about sledging! It had all gone by this morning anyway!
15/02/2013 at 09:12
M6 - virtually all of JMC's post involve "sledging".
15/02/2013 at 09:14
PPP - so which of my generous sponsorship offers are you going to accept?

Saturday Long Run

Meeting at Rose Hill 8 o'clock

Best of luck to everyone racing this weekend

GBM- Thanks for the company yesterday, must of been a good session my legs are aching.

15/02/2013 at 11:32

J8-is it 4x5 miles

15/02/2013 at 11:44

TB- Not bothered, last week we went up to Disley, Kettleshulme, Lyme Park, Poynton and couldn't resist the last mile on the Middlewood way.

15/02/2013 at 11:51

Jonah8/TB--4 x 5 miles on the MW would suit me in case i blow up. See you at Rose Hill.
