Morticia - I'm sure they could squeeze you in at Cork next week although you could probably get 2 weeks in Spain for the cost of my 4 day trip. I'm actually going to get myself a club vest to wear but if I don't feel up for the race on the day I'll leave it in the suitcase to avoid shaming the club !

Not sure of any other summer marathons. I suppose we are all destined to be sat in beer gardens, feeling empty because the football season only last for 48 weeks a year and running the occasional 5K or 10K.

Mickey6/Minnie6--I'm spending the evening doing my summer race plan/Snowdonia Marathon training plan wallchart. (GBM-get a life!) Could you be so kind as to put your 'Fell Race list' on here again. Thank you!

GBM - I will be at Shutlingsloe Race on Monday in my official ranger capacity!!

I'll be holding the rope across the river and 1st aid duty!!!!!!!!

BTB - Your bike will be nice and clean for Sunday, M6 is kindly letting me use one of his other bikes.

M6 - is it easier if I cycle BTB's to the meeting point and you meet us there ? (or if everyone wanted to they could meet at mine so I dont have to get up so early and perhaps teher might be some suasage and bacon sandwiches ready as we will all need some carbs to soak up the beer... I mean to keep us going through such a strenuous training session?)

GBM/Morticia - I just did a filter on 'Stockport' - sorry.
25/05/2007 at 21:04
M6 - what route? Or is it to remain a surprise?

This weekend is the 100 year scouting celebration at Linnet Clough. 1200 scouts will be clogging the place up on sunday morning so we might not be able to thunder down the track back to the Roman Lakes if that was the plan.

Isaac - this could be complicated - will you ride my bike back to M/Bridge - or, if you have another, shall I run to yours for 8.30 and ride mine back or.. or...?
25/05/2007 at 21:07
Isaac - cross post! I'll shut up and turn up where/whenever I'm told.

DB may join us.

DB - Elise will not only lend you her bike, but has offered to babysit at yours if it helps you + Tony out. She must want rid of me for something.
25/05/2007 at 21:08
DB - it was me beeping you on the A6 last night!

Daz - M6 and I did the Preston 10 last year - it's a fast course (not for me last year but it is my PB course!) - 2 laps and quite nice!

GBM - need to look at the calendar - do you have a fell race handbook? If not, we'll lend you ours.

Buxton half on Sunday anyone?
25/05/2007 at 21:09
BTB - we saw the scouts tonight on our run - they were everywhere!
25/05/2007 at 21:11
GBM don't think I can make The Leek half,might be in The Lakes.
Was that 20 miler in Stafford can't find it now.

Isaac Mickey's arranged to meet Andy N and his mate there can anyone contact them?
25/05/2007 at 21:19
GBM, What were your splits on Sunday? I think I'll spend my evening analysing your race so I can provide the constuctive feedback you need....actually I think I'd like to encourage a little intrinsic feedback so before tomorrow morning I would like you to have a think about:
1. Which parts of the race you think went very well
2. Which parts you would run differently if you were to do it again.
I will then ask the rest of the group to tell you what they noticed about your race - where you looked strong and where you may be able to improve.

PG--Saturdays race, although quicker than Sundays, was a poor effort. So i think we should focus on that.

1) The first 13 miles went well.
2) I would definitely run the 2nd half of the race differently next time. Instead of feeling tired from 13 miles onwards and blowing up at 20 miles, i will run at 6.30min/mile pace.

I hope this helps you to provide me with your usual calm, tactful advice/encouragement.

"GBM, you are f***ing shit!! 3hrs 47 minutes!! You're a f***ing disgrace to the club!! Blowing up at 20 miles and feeling sorry for yourself, TART! Oh it was a bit windy and there was a 22 mile incline, f***ing soft useless b*****d!! Athlete of the Month, my f***ing arse!!!!!!!!!"
25/05/2007 at 21:38
Minnie6--I do have a FR handbook and i've spent ages looking through it but it doesn't say which races you and Mickey are doing. Can you speak to the editor before the 2008 book comes out so that this doesn't happen again?
25/05/2007 at 21:50
Right thats all the cleaning done, Im allowed on the computer now.

Who, what, where, tomorrow & Sunday?

Sat 8:30 @ Disley Car Park - running in Lyme Park (Trail Shoes)

Sun 9:00 @ Hollins Ln Car Park - biking with Mickey

Is this correct & will I come down the hill, turn right at the lights & easily spot the car park at Hollins Ln?

GBM are you doing the race on Sun & can I borrow you FRA book?
25/05/2007 at 21:55
Kwaka--8am tomorrow Disley station. Bring road and trail shoes.

Sunday info correct. Bring waterproofs!!

Not made my mind up about Sunday yet! I will bring FRA book tomorrow.

25/05/2007 at 22:08
GBM- Thanks for the suggestions but I remembered afterwards the small matter of the 50 mile thing in July! The Peaker's stroll looks good but it's the weekend before AND it's 25 miles which is annoying.

PG- I think you'll find GBM will blame me for giving him incorrect information about the ascent in WP which caused his downfall. I am however to blame for his Windermere time because I kept stopping and sulking. He is rubbish at walking quickly though.
25/05/2007 at 22:19
Mort - whats the 50 miler?
