And a thought that I agree with... I'll be the red face one dressed in a vest and shorts!

Sorry Jon posted you're e-mail back before looking at the forum. Sure if you want some company we'll run together. I'll tell you how I get on at Burnham as a guide because I'm hoping to beat my Reading time. 1:45 has a nice sound to it

Doesn't stop me from wanting a sub 1:40, just might not mean that I reach it in my first attempt! Who cares! I'm pleased with my 10k time as it's only been a year and a half since I restarted running and have lost 3 stone and 10 minutes off my first 10k back! I just want to meet some of you guys, have a beer and get a decent time if my legs allow me to!?

I suspect you'll be OK for all three wishes

Hey Jon - good luck - my mate from work is doing it as well. Looks to be a lovely route - all in the Great Park ?

IO'd love to do it but I'm all evented up - Liverpool Half, then 2 weeks later Lake Vyrnwy Half, and I have to fit about 3 10ks in around then too.

Maybe next year I'll plan it better.

Good luck on the 1.40 - Kick asssss !!!

Cheers buddy!

Blimey, with a 10k time like that you'll be a long way from last, I would love to have a 10k time like that. I would guess with those sort of times you would be in the first half of the field!

Best of luck.

Hi Jon and all,

You may just get your 1:40 you know, my 10km is 39:51, and my half is 1:30:53, so you could just do it.

See you all there

Ta! As I said the only reason I was thinking 1:40 was because I know no better! We'll just have to wait and see!

My 10K pb is 46mins but my 1/2 pb is 1.43 so your 1.40 may not be so far out. That was run at Reading, which I imagine is a quicker course than Windsor.

My only 10k is 39 summat and my Half PB is a 1.26 So a 1.40 is easily on for you.

Just get a good start near the front, and follow somebody who knows that they can do a 1.40. Easy eh ? ;-)

But you're better than me!

Can you tell that I'm not that busy at the moment?

Well it's hardly worth starting anything at the moment is it ? Not with the weekend almost upon us anyway ;-)

Precisely! I looked at the RW 1/2 Marathon training schedule on the tube this morning (hungover!) and I'm now officially scared!

Aaah - but surely that is in an ideal world ?
When I ran my first Half this year I'd done one 12 miler, one 15 miler, and one 8 miler. And the rest were 6 miles or less. Probably about 3 runs per week on average ? Is that bad according to the schedule ?
09/08/2002 at 11:31
Urm... Yes! I've never followed one before so why am I worried?

Have a look!

When I did my first half of the year in June, I had run no further then a 10km race for over 8 months, and was only going out 2 times a week, but it was still ok.

09/08/2002 at 11:53
Thats reassuring!!!

Blummin 'eck - a regular 40 miles a week ?
I'd be way too tired for anything if I was doing those kinda distances.

I think my highest mileage this year was 30 miles and that included running the darn Marathon. Most weeks would have been 18 miles or so, except when building for FLM, when I did get a few 30 mile weeks.

In fact before my 1.26 PB for the Chester Half I'd only done 26 miles spread over 4 weeks, but with about 110 miles of cycling and a very few runs on the treadmill.

I really think I'd go worse if I ran as much as I was expected to.

So doing a 10 mile interval session tonight then ?
