excellent news, guv001, and an excellent PB!

managed to get in a lap of Richmond Park with the club this morning before the heavens opened. with the Middlesex 10k next week, acted on an old piece of Stephen Forde advice and did 3k at 5.30m/km, then 4k at 4.35m/km (goal 10k pace), then back to 4.5k at 5.30m/km. good workout!

Wow guv, Thats about two minutes faster than my PB.

sun 10 miles (1:40)

Last long run before 10K race next Sunday, happy enough with my progress but I'm noticing that I'm running out of steam around the nine mile mark, will need to improve stamina over the next couple of months.

Congrats on the pb guv, you must be delighted.

9 miles @ 7:22 m/m average pace. Legs were a bit tired in the last couple of miles but it was a good run in the rain!

Good work all and weel done guv for the PB!

I did the Cirencester 10k yesterday and got a PB of 45.30. Although I watched it and got 45.09 - understand a couple of seconds difference but 21?? Either way, chuffed with the PB.

Snap DunkyD! I also did the Cirencester 10K. Well done on the PB. Same to guv - that's a terrific time.

Theyr'e giving gun time on the list but if you click on your name, you get your chip time. My gun time is 45 seconds slower than my chip time, which is one second faster than the time I had.

I missed my sub 50 target by 50 seconds. As my gun time suggests, I got stuck right at the back and spent the race, from the 1st kilometre marker, working my way up the field, which involved a fair bit of zigzagging and waiting for gaps where some groups decided to run four abreast (!). A bit annoying but it's my first 10k race so it's good to know that I at least got close to my target and probably, on a different day (where I didn't need a wee a few minutes before the start!) I could have got under it.

Hey Matt,

Cheers for clearing up the gun/chip, will have a butchers.

Well done on hitting your target, just about - I stuggled with the first 2kms with bodies in the way too!

Are you doing the Stroud Half?


24/09/2012 at 11:36

Not this year no as we're away that weekend. I doubtless will do at some point in the future though as that's very local to me.

Next race for me is the Bath Hilly Half.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone.  Went on the Mcmillian running calc today to try and get a better idea of how to train so I did an easy run according to Mcmillian for 7.35 miles it was much faster than I'm used to for an easy run!! - 6:48 m/m.

Mon 7.00pm - 1 hour on treadmill - a case of trying to loosen up some stiff muscles from yesterdays long run

keep it going everyone

Up and out at 6.30 this morning for my first proper run for a fortnight. I did a VERY sedate 3 miles, and concentrated on changing to forefoot striking. It seemed to work - I had no problems with my Achilles, and it was wonderful to be out running again. The sky was beautiful - streaked with gold, and it felt very mild. What a joy!

25/09/2012 at 12:26

Hola all,

Did 8.8miles at a nice slow pace. I swear I has asleep when I started it at 6:30!


25/09/2012 at 20:26

An easy 7 miles this evening.

25/09/2012 at 21:01

Pushed for time so just 4.5 miles on the treadmill tonight.

26/09/2012 at 09:51


4.8miles - easy this morning. Just realised I broke 1000 miles for the year on the weekend too. Woop woop

26/09/2012 at 10:28

4 miles yesterday lunchtime in 34:52.

26/09/2012 at 16:09

congrats on the various Cirencester PBs.

my boss let me have two hours for lunch, so rattled off Oxford Circus-Regents Park-Primrose Hill-Parliament Hill-Kenwood House and back for 16k at 5.30m/km. very showery and autumnal, with first conkers on the ground.

club championship 10k this weekend.

8.1 mile interval session this afternoon.  Getting faster so morale is high this evening along with with sore legs.  Recovery tomorrow I think....

26/09/2012 at 20:45
