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.

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?

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!!!!!!!!!"

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.

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?
25/05/2007 at 22:27
Sat 2rd June - Stockport Harriers pub crawl

7:00pm - Queens Head, Little Underbank - Winters - Spread Eagle (next to brewery)

8:30pm - Waterloo (off hillgate) - Sun & Castle - Star & Garter - Weatsheaf

10:30 - Blossoms - Curry ( A6 opposit pub )

25/05/2007 at 22:29
Kwaka- Kent 50 mile challenge. I know it's a long way but it's supposed to be really good and well organised and I can tie in a visit to my mum!

Kent 50 mile challenge

M--I'm away that weekend! What about the weekend after?

Found another fell race.


Stockport Harriers should bring back The Vanessa Chappell FR. Why did we stop doing it? Health and Safety issues?


PG--WP marathon was all Morts fault!!!
25/05/2007 at 23:04
M the harriers pub crawl coincides with Stockport beer and cider festival, it's either the wincle trout fell race or TReebeard.
25/05/2007 at 23:40
There's a fell race at Bamford Sheepdog Trials on Monday, which I was thinking I might do, but the weather is looking like kiboshing a family day out :o(

Other than that (and apart from my sneaky 1st relay leg of Man v Horse on June 9th), I am now looking at the Two Lads at Horwich on June 21st as my first fell race...
25/05/2007 at 23:48
See you all at 08:00.

WITGB you lazy good for nothing... If you want a lift be at mine by 07:50.

BTB - I am sure we will sort something out for Sunday, but you running to mine to pick your bike up does sound like a great idea, unless M6 can fit your bike in his super car.
26/05/2007 at 00:17
Cant we meet at the top of a hill on Sunday instead of below sea level ?
26/05/2007 at 07:49
Isaac- new plan. I'll pick you up at your house at 8.30am we can put the three bikes in the car and drive up to J8's, BTB can meet us there, then we can roll down the hill to meet the others for 9.00am.

New Route- Marple Bridge,Roman Lakes , Strines Station, Birch Vale, Chinley Churn,Hayfield, Lantern Pike,Rowarth,Mellor via Church, Marple Bridge.

GBM - How I wish I had seen your post before I came to Disley this morning. I really feel that I let you down by not reinforcing your positive thinking re your ability as an endurance athlete. I will prepare an exercise on positive imagery that you can carry out on the run on Monday. I think this will do you the world of good.
Morticia - I know you are trying to protect GBM but really we know that you were trying to get him to sort his pace out by putting in sensible walking breaks. He needs to learn from you and although you let him think you were sulking he should realise that you were actually conserving energy by refusing to chat along the way. A very sensible approach I must say - an approach that GBM should learn from - he is far too quick to prat around and forget his race plan completely.
