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?
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 7Mthen my pace started to fall away and I hoped for sub-1:50things 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 1:51:44still, a PB is a PB I supposeI 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
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.
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.
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).
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.
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!
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
TB- I'll get 'im next time
Might have helped if I hadn't dropped out as usual
I would like to point out that I haven't got sweaty pits- it's a shadow.
You dropped out, not surprised, course looks a bit boring. Great shot.
RB - yes of course how could I forget the Stockport 10. I'm just hoping for a fairly dry course on Saturday as all the XC races I've done this winter have been very muddy. Whatever happens it can't possibly be worse conditions than the Northerns!
that photo is truly scarynot in and of itselfbut because that's how I picture morticia most of the time anyway
JMC- Talking of Badgers, went on a head torch run last night with one of my neighbours and nearly got squashed by a rather fat Badger, it jumped off a drystone wall right in front of us, then ran down the road , you could hear it's claws scraping on the road.
J8-are you sure it wasn't one of the threadites
TB - a day without a contribution from you is like a day without sunshine. I for one would be curious to see your choices for the top 3 candidates for 'badger-like threadite'.....
J8 - so you were outrun by a fat badger?
RB- Of course, didn't want to get close to it again, have you seen the size of there claws
BB- Starting track work again next week, Thursday 1000 x 6 if you are about.
Doing 24 miles this Saturday, meet at Rose Hill then head off towards Lyme Park Kettleshulme etc, no fast stuff this week, time on your feet run.
