Ooh are you the devil then Alex;-)

Runs around the thread very excited by it all:-)

Ooooooh yes. So pick up your weapons and fight.

Anyway, good newz on the olympics. Just gotta speed up a bit by 2012. Any 7 year training plans ?

Well I was thinking of starting my training tomorrow morning I am on a 7 year plan think my best option is to add another leg for speed;-)or just 7 years of speed work and I should be ready.......for the knackers yard;-)

Oooh I don't fight I think I better just run away you are scaring me!!
06/07/2005 at 22:12

I'm so excited and I just can't hide it

I'm about to lose control and I think I like it

I'm so excited and I just can't hide it

And I know I know I know I know I know I want you

PS Just to clarify, I'm excited about the Olympics, not Welsh Alex...

Although Welsh Alex is a nice guy, it's just that, you know, not in that way...
07/07/2005 at 09:21
Aw thanks Greeny did not know you cared about me;-)
07/07/2005 at 09:27

Hello girls and boys,how's everyone doing?

WP,we will have to meet down at the 5K Tuesday so I can put a face to the typing!

Did another 8 miler tonight,the schedule originally said 6 but coach said that because I was feeling good that I could do 8.Kind isn't he?

Got a 6 miler at 10K pace tomorrow night. Will have done 42 miles by the end of this week so a good week of miles under my belt.Not bad for week one of marathon training.

Alex,how's it going?

Jinx,where've you gone????

Hope everyone is well :-)

Evening JA,

Looks like thingz are going well for you there. Most things are well with me, hope all is with you too and everyone else (inc. the kidnapped Jinx).

I had Sun off after the mad-getting-lost-on-box-hill thing last sat. Felt fine after it but on Mon pm my right hamstring was tender. Gentle 5k + gym on mon night and it was tweaking so tue + wed off. 8 miles tonight (Gowerton-Cockett-Grovesend-Gowerton) easy pace and although I can feel the hamstring slightly it was working ok. Had to resist temptation to push it, especially near the end. More tomorrow night, will prob do 6-8 miles.

Got the Wyre Valley Half in Worcestersostercestershire on Sun so that should be fun. Lunch in the pub with RichK, Caz and a few others after. Looking foreword to it. Hope it will not be too hot. I still have a burn mark on my back (where I missed with the factor 50) from the Sarn Helen Hill Race a couple of months ago !

Greeny, Treat ‘em mean, get punched in the face. That is more the modern ethos. WP – there will be a time and a place to strike !
07/07/2005 at 22:51

That should be garden village not grovesend else it would be about 15 miles !
08/07/2005 at 04:10

You will have to tell me more about your route to cockett and garden village etc I am up to 12 miles and that takes me past the Marquis arms and back.

You are so right I am waiting for the right moment to strike beating him once again at the 5k sounds like the perfect place;-))))

Give my best to Richk when you see him top guy:-) good luck on Sunday

Yes we will hopeful meet at the 5K

good training this week and great for you 1st week marathon training

things still going well for me and achived everything I needed to in training this week yesterday 10 miles which was 2 miles warm up 2 miles@9mm 2miles@8.45 2 miles@ 8.30 and 2 miles easy which was down cycle track and along to pier and back well if I had done it on the hills I think I may have failed;-) but find the route boring
