Daz- Just tested my dodgy knee. Was doing ok for an hour but had to slow down to 7 minute miling then as i didn't want to overdo it. Threw in a few usain boltesque strides though for good measure.

Good luck to the other racers in case you can't keep up with me

Good luck to all the Village people this weekend!

Need to do a 20miler tomorrow but not keen on 4x 5 miles. Would rather do a Disley and Lyme park route, ideally with as much of it on soft ground as possible to avoid aggravating my sore foot

What's the difference between 4 x 5 miles and 20 miles? 

15/02/2013 at 19:26

BHB-the same as 2x3 or 3x2, If you do a progression run, it's on the same ground, back and forward, whereas 20 straight miles there's bound to be a hill or two. I just have visions of GBM blowing up.

J8-i'm hoping to make it, but best laid plans and all that-the 4x5 mile seems good.

Yes, good luck to those racing this week end

no running for me for a few days due to bad effing back! new one on me and it is crap.

good luck all bakers and any other racers!

So not only do you run the MWW several times a week, you run the same 5 mile strecth over and over! 

Good luck to the Village Bakery runners. I really wanted to do that one as my first serious race of the year, but family commitments got in the way.

PPP, rest up old timer - it's your comeuppance for shouting obscenities out of your car window.

Just been looking at VB stuff and noticed this year's entry form had 'ladies record 79:27' on it, but JS did 79:02 last year????

Good luck to all those running this weekend especially FOAR who I managed to transfer my number to.

Grindleford - I know it's a few weeks away but I just wanted to get you all thinking.  The trains don't run from Marple to Grindleford on that day and there is a bus replacement service instead, so don't think we'll be doing that!  There are however trains running between Hazel Grove and Grindleford so that's an option.  Secondly, is everyone racing it or are we running in groups?  Thirdly, are we making a day of it and either getting some lunch at the pub in Grindleford we went to at Christmas or should we make our way back to the Hairy Dog (via HG) or Hazel Grove to watch United in the pub at 3pm (home to Norwich)?  Lots to consider!!

Like GBM said, Great turn out, best for ages, like the "old days".

Ending up doing 20 miles in 2.22, looking good for Boston.

ES- I will be driving to Grindleford, I'm running it with Kev like last year, could do with you running it with us because I'm not 100% sure of the route.

Think I'll give watching the football a miss though.

16/02/2013 at 16:07
Jonah - happy to run with you and Kev, and at least you won't have SARQ slowing you down this year!
16/02/2013 at 17:06
Bhb, we'd only slag you off if you did the village bakery 12, Eric's not lived it down for getting a one off never to be repeated pb there.

Glad I turned up this morning, felt fresh and a respectable paced 17.2 in the end.
16/02/2013 at 17:25

Morticia, I think last year was when the locals thought it was good fun to switch the signs and send runners on the wrong route.  Perhaps they are not recognising course records for that reason?  That's a pity 'cos I'm sure JS's time was genuine.

Sounds like I missed a good run this morning. Did 12 miles myself today but it felt harder than it should have. 

16/02/2013 at 20:49
ES - Thanks but unfortunately I'll have to scratch from VB. A combination of poor planning on my part and a family commitment. Apologies for wasting the place.

All the best to those who are running !

As for Grindleford, train from HG sounds good and happy to go with the flow after.

Thanks to RB for helping me with the surprisingly challenging tasks of opening a gate and scanning bar codes at Bramhall this morning. Hope I didn't wreak too much havoc on the results.Back to normal long run next Sat !

4 x 5 miles on the MWW was actually surprisingly enjoyable!
Felt grim for first 5 but then felt progressively better and got progressively quicker for each one. It's a bit depressing getting back to the car and having to turn around again but it's a hard session.

Grindleford - I got my matches mixed up.  United kick off at 12.45pm away at West Ham on Grindleford day.  Looks like another plan is needed!
