You do not.  When we trained for FLM in the winter you even had creases down your sports jacket!!!  And many times you had long sleeve top on with creases to cut bread with!

There is nothing wrong with being well turned out!

I am not going for a time.  I haven't done a race in so long I have probably forgotten how to run!  And don't think I am going to be able to run longer than about 8 miles or so before hand.  Relying on residual fitness I think
10/09/2009 at 11:06
You'll do it! I have every faith!

Mmmmm excuses in early - canny

I emailed the organisers on Tuesday about pacing, still no reply.

Run club tonight.

Oh I can do it Spike but how fast is another matter.  IM training meant lots of long but slow stuff so we shall see

You know I may just be able to crack the 2 hours (especially if I'm chased/paced Daz!)

I know this is probably not that impressive to all you fast types, but I'm telling ya anyway! I went out for an easy run last night, but I got scared by a large bunch of yoof's about half a mile in and sped up. Thought I'd see how long I could keep it up for - did a smidge over 5 miles in 43 minutes and had enough energy for a little victory dance round my kitchen when I got home!

Just wear the outfit you have in your avatar and I'm sure lots of young men will volunteer to pace you lol.

That's a good run, based on 5 miles exact that's a pace of 8:36/mile equating to a half time of 1:59:22.  Go for it.  We'll organise some Welsh yoofs to scare you.

Rio can finish first and get the ale in

That's a Jane Fonda leotard - it's my fancy dress 'piece de la resistance'! I can't really breathe when I'm wearing it so I reckon it'll hamper my chances..even if you do release the yoofs!

I worked it out that if I could keep that pace up I'd run it in 1:52:44! You're not going to shatter my dream are you?! 

10/09/2009 at 13:49

anyone up for fancy dress?

i struggled to do my last half in 1.58, and i have been off with an injury for a month,

and as im running for VELINDRE CANCER CENTREim thinking why not?

sponsor me @..........
