Grindleford - forget everything I've talked about above!  If United beat Reading tomorrow then they'll be in the cup that weekend and won't play Norwich or West Ham.  They'll be playing Middlesbrough or Chelsea on a day and time yet to be decided. 

Well done Morticia!

ES - I hope you were never fixtures secretary for that club you were involved in !

Well done all racers.

Half way through marathon training now .

Haha FOAR thanks for the help - there is a bit of a knack to the scanning especially on a bright day with 400 runners.  The gate was a bit of a fail though!

I think we all had the same experience at VB HM.  Perfect temperature, running along really well 6-7-8-9 ... then at 10 miles the wind that we hadn't noticed on our backs was suddenly head on.  That made for a testing last 3 miles but I managed to contest 3rd until within sight of the finish.  So 4th in 72.52.  Which gives PPP a target for Wilmslow.

Charlie Batho collected 10 thermal mugs from the organisers of the aborted Helsby HM when he was at Wrexham yesterday. He asked me to let you all know he'll be at the track on both Tues and Thurs evening this week and will hand them out on a first-come, first served basis to would-be Helsby runners. He said that the organisers also requested the return of the chipped race numbers if any of you still have them, to help keep their costs down for next year.

RB- i think PPP will have a better chance when he has his hair cut, he'll lose 10lbs in weight.

FOAR-people have strengths in different areas, Eric's isn't in planning or direction, there again, that goes for half the threadites 

Mort-who won the great debate, you or Daz?

18/02/2013 at 10:29

PPP, you have RB's pretty amazing V45 time to aim for.  Good luck with that one! 

18/02/2013 at 10:42

ES - does that mean your Grindleford entry is up for grabs?

Can I have first dibs please. I promise not to beat your amazing time of last year!

It looks like it will be my turn to bring the mini-Bobs to the track tomorrow night.  Is there a JMC marathon training session?

18/02/2013 at 12:10

tbh I don't remember feeling much of a wind on Village Bakery, but if I'm allowed to use that as an excuse I'll take it!
I was aiming for sub-1:48 and was on target at 7M
then my pace started to fall away and I hoped for sub-1:50
things disintegrated spectacularly in miles 11 & 12 and I had to work ridiculously hard in the last mile to carve a massive 30 seconds off my PB and clock 1:51:44
still, a PB is a PB I suppose
I hate road running - never again...

PPP - I'm still going to make a donation once we see photos (or preferably a video) of your haircut...

RB - 6 x 800 with 400 recovery

18/02/2013 at 14:04

Eric-just in case you've got your days mixed up Utd v Reading TONIGHT, it's on ESPN live.

DAZ-it was a windy but beautiful day yesterday on top of Shelf Moor, well done on the PB.

JMC-as i said very briefly on Saturday, yes, you can improve, get out with RB in Lyme Park. At least after you passed, i had the brief pleasure with running with a GB international. Have you considered doing the Vets. champs.

18/02/2013 at 15:15

DTS I know what you meab.  I kept thinking that it would be a nice day to be out on the hills.  The wind did ease later on or maybe I just didn't notice it on warm down.

JMC - thanks, I'll probably join you.  Not been on the track for a long time.

18/02/2013 at 15:25

Well done to all Village Bakery runners!

I was supposed to just plod round after doing 16 miles on Saturday but after half a mile my legs had loosened up a bit so picked the pace up and decided to use it as a marathon pace run. I was on for about 1.29 after 10 miles but the headwind for the last 3 miles (Daz--You didn't notice it?!!!!!), tired legs and CBA-ness meant i finished in 1.32 something. Good workout though.

Great running GBM, but a really sh*t race report (by your standards).

18/02/2013 at 16:18

SARQ--Its not a race report, its a training run report!  I didn't learn from Saturday either! It was bloody freezing again and as i was only supposed to be plodding round i decided to wear 3 layers and gloves! A decision i regretted once i picked the pace up. 

18/02/2013 at 16:42
Thanks for the reminder TB. I have the tickets for the Reading match on my desk and have double checked the date to make sure it wasn't yesterday!
18/02/2013 at 17:04

Well done to the Village Bakers.

RB - are you doing the National? The days of me beating you in races would seem to be a distant memory. I'll be praying for sunshine all week!


18/02/2013 at 17:21

Haha NI - at your age you should be able to remember back to the STK10 - which was after all THE race of 2012.

I'm running the Nationals but really only because I'm up there with the mini-Bobs and the other Stocky juniors.  Hopefully I'll give you a race but top 300 would be a result for me - I'm just not fast enough at the start to do much better than that.  Last year I was 299th.  Surely any course in Sunderland will be a mudbath?

GBM - I can see that DTS might not notice the wind compared to his happy days being blown about on the hills.  But it also depends how fast you're running into it
