I do - it's the only wy my running shoes will ever smoke !

Jinx - Just get out there. The only person you have to compete with is yourself.

Jinx - give up, running's crap.

Glad to see you have de lurked

Poppy looks innocent......not sure what you are trying to say to me:-)

Are you saying I don't do base miles;-)

Poppy makes a mental to remember that George lurkes so be careful what I say as it could come and bite me on my bottom at a later date!!!!

Hey Jinx,you ought to start coming to club.
The support and advice is fantastic,it gives you so much motivation too.
29/06/2005 at 09:43
Jinx, I'm thinking of becoming a motivation coach - what do you reckon?

Hi, George!

Alex,well done on your 4th place last night.
I really enjoyed the race and the conditions were lovely.
Much rather this race to Swansea Bay 5K.
I knocked a minute off my time from the last Grange 5K which considering was only a month ago i'm quite chuffed with!
I always enjoy getting a PB.
What was your time in the end?
Have you thought about joining our club?

Hi Jenny,

Thanks. Yes I was pleased with 4th and time was 22:07 which was about 1:30 off my last time. For some reason my short range running had gone really downhill although I seem to be getting back on track a bit and this result is a good sign.

I too much prefer the course. The fact that it is not totally flat and in Swansea the bay track slopes left to right which is bad news for injuries in my view.

Well done on your time too. You were running really well and your second half looked very strong.

Yes, I might consider joining a club. Been running for years on my own and I am happy with that although I guess I would welcome anything that might provide a bit of variety and speed me up.

(Just thinking about Oscar Wilde who said he would not join any club that would have him !)

Well done Alex, you gona join 3M's

Jen its the race at club tonight but should make it next week.

Running again today so I think the motivation is coming back, thanks to Greeny...lol

I guess Junx, from what I have heard it sounds like the choice for mortals. I am however off to victorian seaside sh*thole Great Yarmouth for a couple of days this afternoon so there is no chance this week. Business not pleasure you understand. A nice five hour drive; just gotta time leaving Swansea so I miss rush hour on the magic roundabout.

Hey Jinx,yeah it's the monthly race but a good chance to meet everyone and there's no pressure,just a run.
If you fancy coming let me know and i'll mail you the details.

Alex,fantastic news on your time,that's a hell of a good effort knocking 1:30 off!
My target is the girl who was with me when I was talking to you, Ingrid. She won and she's awesome but i'm aiming to beat her in the x-countrys in the winter.She's been trying to break 20 minutes for 5K for a few years and did it for the first time last night so she's absolutely over the moon.

It seems to me that there are a lot of very good girls in running and a few races I have been to more women running than men. (Was that the case last nigth; seems so).

Sub 20 mins for a 5k is more than great, I could probably only move that fast if I fell off a cliff. I reckon at the rate you are improving your times you will get there.

Sadly, knocking 1:30 off is more a measure of my previous poor performance. I have a 5k route with comprable undulations to the one in Llanelli which I run in training about Gowerton. I have been down as low as 21:20 on it but not since last Jan so my current target is to get back there. Having said all that 22:07 is a PB for me in a 5k race.

Jinx - just get out there and enjoy. You don't have to be in superstar shape.

I think it was PBs all round last night!

There do seem to be a lot of good girls around,it's great to have a lot of competition.I think the reason why I got such a good time last night was because I was trying to catch the girl in front of me and was pushing hard.

The weather is meant to be raining and stormy again later which will be good for the race.
It's about 4 or 5 miles I think around the forestry in Penllergaer.
