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

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).

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.

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!

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

18/02/2013 at 18:26

 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.

18/02/2013 at 22:44

You dropped out, not surprised, course looks a bit boring. Great shot. 

19/02/2013 at 13:22

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!

19/02/2013 at 23:12

that photo is truly scary
not in and of itself
but 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.


20/02/2013 at 11:26

J8-are you sure it wasn't one of the threadites

20/02/2013 at 11:32

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'.....

20/02/2013 at 12:31

J8 - so you were outrun by a fat badger?

20/02/2013 at 12:41

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.
