Anyone fancy a pb?!
Thats great Degsy! hopefully see you there soon! I usually do lead bike, but this week im leading a pacing group for 25 min. I'm aiming to run it myself at the end of the month. Sounds like your running great Chingoncito! What marathon are you doing? Well your more than welcome to give him a run for his free entry! haha, but no worries if you want to focus on the longer stuff this weekend! Look forward to seeing you there also! I think Jonny Mellor of the Harriers who is running the New York Half Marathon for GB has said he will do it in the next month or two so i'm sure he will be putting his name on the record, but it's up for grabs before then!
Haha erm well I might let someone else do that job that week, or I could just pop along with my racer He's on the telly next week racing against Mo Farah in Birmingham. I dont think Mark comes on Runnersworld but he is well up for this!! I actually hope it goes down to the last 100 metres would be really great to watch. Also just wait till I get back fit Andy I'm not called Sprinting Toffee for nothing
Please don't let speed demons like Andy put off any beginners though! We have a 30 minute for 5k pacing group this week, the Halewood 5k is very beginner friendly with a competitive edge
Good to see he`s well up for a qiuck run then
Cant wait now
i reckon the sub 30group is a good idea too, it`s a good incentive for alot of people because its achievable yet rewarding at the same time. it was good to see a group going round together last week in the 25min pace area
Sub 16.30? Ha Im definately the outsider for this weekend! Ive got the slowest 5km pb, wont be tapering and am focussing on the longer distances at the moment(excuses out the way early)
As for race tactics, i think whoever goes off at the front the other 2 will just stick with him because the gap between us is so small that whoever finishes 3rd should be able to hold the winning pace until at least 3km, my prediction is we'll all go off at a ridiculous pace....it will start to fade before a brutal last km where it will come down to whoever has the most left, if it is a sprint finish i reckon things could get messy after the finish line
Must admit im looking forward to this as well, not everyday you can find a pb course with such close competition!
I can't wait!!! Like I've said before i'm on lead bike so not too quick please lads It should really be a good race, theres a few other lads from our club doing it too. All aiming for low 17's so probably won't be in contention unless its a slower pace. These lads are great runners too, but can't touch Mark Clair in training at the min
