JMC - an early decision from me re Grindleford. I've utilised my time management skills to enable me to ditch some work and take part in the race.
Jonah - unfortunately I don't feel able to run with you and Kev because although I definitely feel fit enough I just haven't got enough long runs under my belt.
GBM/Isaac/WITGB/FOAR - are any of you running together? If so then I'm definitely up for joining you!
Eric--I'm plodding round slowly with Isaac and using it as a 'time on my feet' run. Probably a similar effort to the Xmas recce.
Norton 9 this morning - ran ok which was surprising as my training in February has been shite. A tip for peak performance - spending the day before a race painting a cramped damp and dingy cellar is not the best idea.
Perri Shakes Drayton rocks! Wonder what she can do outside for 400 flat.
ES - Nice one. I'm aiming to finish in around 3 hours.
Morticia - 4 hrs 47mins. I.am just off to buy a lottery ticket for Tuesday's draw
SW - Well done today, despite the cramping .
'I've utilised my time management skills' LOL!!!!!
It can only be a matter of time before he becomes a triathlete........
Oi Mystic Foxy that's not very encouraging!!!!!
Jonah8--Ok, as long as the pace isn't too quick. 5.30pm at Rose Hill?
SW--So its the old 'spending the day before a race painting a cramped damp and dingy cellar' excuse is it? Well done!!
GBM- ok see you at half 5
Does anyone need a number for Trafford 10k? I've been asked to do the Inter-counties XC instead.

NI - Trafford is day after Inter-counties?
No, actually I decided against running both too.
Great that we'll both be wearing the orange vests. In theory it will be a fast dry course which should mean that you only see me at the finish. The mini-Bob's are running too.
I could only manage 2nd at High Legh again.
Headtorch Run this Weds. 5.30pm at Rose Hill. 15 miles. All welcome.
RB - Yes, I would have quite liked to have done Trafford but the chance of a county vest was too good to refuse. Are you not going to predict which point of the race you are going to come past again? The course is apparently bone-dry and hilly which should be more to my liking than previous races. At least it will shut me up about making excuses anyway!
Likewise NI - I'm not far off BHB's age category so unlike you I might not get many more chances. Ironically the fact that GM is fielding a team of guys like us make it more likely that we'll actually finish a team of 6 - something that hasn't happened in recent years when GM has picked a "team of stars" but few have turned up.
The course should suit you and my prediction is that I won't see you before the finish. But should you waver from the task of course I'll be following like the grim reaper.
PPP - yes that was pretty impressive. But he is a class athlete and was running 67 min HMs and 14 min 5ks as a V40.
And Bath is a fast course.
And my PB is a bit quicker. Tiny bit. Although I've never managed to get near it again.
GBM-re. Grindleford, if you're jogging round with Isaac, i would like to join you. I've not run for 5 days, long story, BUT i can tell you on Saturday and keep you amused
J8-do you still eat Clif bars, if so, the web site Sports Pursuit have them on sale at half price-70p each, i bought some 5 weeks ago and ordering some more.
Northern 12 stage road relays in Blackpool on Saturday 23rd March - last chance if you want to run, please let me know ASAP. I'm submitting the team this week.
RB - some of the other members of the team are a bit quicker than us! Well done at High Legh btw.
GBM - grindleford will not be a jog now. Conversation with Isaac 'can you still hear tb?' 'Yes' 'Lets catch up with Eric and JMc then'
Not guaranteed to be doing Grindleford yet. Wife is away that day so trying to organise childminder. Don't have an entry either yet but if I can get a childminder sorted I will run it whatever.
