All the best big man and Peter Thompson14 - I voted for you in the sub 3 category. Really hope you two get in and am UBER jealous of this opportunity. I think Steve Smythe is a great mentor to have via the forums and is still aiming at going sub 2h45 in 5 separate decades  The man's an animal...... He's also a great guy to chat with and I have to admit to having a bit of a man crush on him

Good luck! Hows the campaigning going? do you think if were struggling for votes we could join forces and form some sort of running coillition!

Hi Pete, not seen you here for a while - keep posting mate - have you been on the sub 3 thead? There's loads of good posters on there that can give good advice. If you are seroius about your sub 3 you should check it out regardless of the outcome from the SS. Go for it dude!

I think you are up there with Angus in your category, you did well last Saturday!

Cheers MM - your thread this year for the Lucozade SS was an inspiration - not just for me but for many others - keep it up on the sub 3.15 buddie! It's good to have you, Morghan and other others on there for a balanced opinion!

With about 10 days to go before my 16 week plan starts, I've been building up the weekly milage again and I'm going out again tomorrow for another 14/15 miler. I just want to get to a point before the plan starts that 15 miles/2hours on my feet feels like a comfortable run. I've got a Club Handicap race next Sunday which is a 6 mile race so it would be good to get a decent time in that before the 16 plan starts on the monday.

Either way with the Super Six comp, I'm runing a marathon next April 10th, either in Paris or Brighton.

15 miles last night starting off at around 8.15 pace for the first few miles. Then I started adding to the pace until I was doing the last few miles at marathon pace. It felt okay, but i was glad to finish as it was a late finish - 10pm!

A bit of a rest tonight after last nights 15 miler. Off to my eldest boys carol concert at school tomorrow nigth, then out for a run after their bedtime. Looking forward to starting my 16 week plan next week.

Hopefully that will be as a Super Sixer!

If there is anyone just reading through this for the first time and hasn't made their mind up yet, then head to the sub 3.15 page and cast your vote in my direction please - Colin - Knight Rider.

It's great to off load all the “please vote for me” on the Super Six stuff on this thread!

By the way the spot has now gone

No Club run tonight as planned as I've got my sons Christmas Carol concert to go to.

So another post boys bedtime run for me again!
Looking forward to another good session, will let you know what it is later.

Christmas Carol concert at my boys school was good tonight.

It was too late to make it to Club for a session tonight, so instead I ran there in time for them all coming back. After a bit of a chat and more Super Six plugging I ran back home.

3.1 miles there at marathon pace of 7.18 mm then 3.1 miles back @ Half marathon pace of 6.48mm.

Not a bad out and back session. The insentive was there to push it to the way back. It certainly made the marathon pace feel easier. One of the seesions we did at the Bootcamp in Birmingham was a 5k time trial. This was spilt into 400m at 10k/5k pace then a recovery 100m at marathon pacce. A tough session, but one that made the marathon pace feel easy as it was straight off the bac kof a more intense 400m.

Looking forward to Thursday for the result of the Super Six competition.
Good luck to all the candicates.

And as always, if you are still undecided, please vote for Colin in the sub 3.15 category.
