WiB 100 miles?

Please tell me your taking a book for miles 26- 60?

I'm bored out of my mind after 13 miles so may never run a marathon unless I think I can manage it in 3hours or under.

I really dont want to be the first runner to fail to finish th VLM on the grounds "I got bored stopped for a cup of tea and couldnt face the rest"

Dont laugh it could happen

No book Stephen... will have enough to think about

Its Friday and all is quiet on the running front.

Tomorrow the push forward!

To Victory!

Rest day for me also......
20/07/2012 at 20:38

7 miles recovery today in just under an hour then hopefully a biggish weekends running.

20/07/2012 at 20:50

Well done everyone- the gap has opened to an average of 3m

13.07m at 7.32 av followed by 0.52 warm down in the sun for me this evening

20/07/2012 at 22:08

Some warm weather running at last?.... just in time for Lakeland 50 and 100 too

Rest day today and pretty much for next 7 days, barring a short long run tomorrow. Will make up for it next Saturday I hope

Is there anyway to delete a run you've logged? I just added a 7.72 mile run but didn't add the dot and it's come up as 772.00. I can't seem to change it to 7.72.

15 odd miles done as of now.

Amazing what your prepared to do at 5:30am after a few pints of Timothy Taylors a burger and chips, a fish supper, and only 4 hours sleep.

We are dropping behind in the average by the way.

Where are all you high milage guys?

Im only a 5k, 10k sort of bloke

Stephen, think the Fetchies average might be artificially high due to Mr Logics 772 mile run. It's too early for me to do the maths and work out if we would be winning otherwise. Your Friday night sounds near perfect though.

Standard 6.05 parkrun + wu/cd for me.

We were 3 miles per person ahead yesterday evening when i logged my run.
21/07/2012 at 10:54

19.1 done early doors for me ... thought I was doing well till I got in and saw Mr Logic's awesome effort !!  


Although in the intrests of fair play I have now corrected it !!

21/07/2012 at 13:49

9 miles ahead on team average!

"Team RW are well ahead of Team FE, but wait a moment though, this is insane what am i seeing here John?"

"Well Mike its looks like Team RW are now running back to Team FE. Running around them, and doing what seems like a little dance. Now they are sprinting off.
I have never seen such a performance!"

"Truly they are not just out to win but to utterly crush the opposition"

"Its the spirit of the Games Mike. Its the true spirit of the Games"

Temporarily back up in the company of other members of team RW with my sunny day and taper shortened long run (although only a position behind Kate and Youngpup I am 20m behind).

Bit of excitement there with the 772 mile run  But I see things are back to normal now and were gradually eeking out that lead!

Well done all and had a laugh at the commentary Stephen

Sorry team - I have a confession to make......

I was planning to go for a 5-6m recovery run this afternoon to get my legs moving and prepped for a half marathon I'm running tomorrow, but my wife has just baked a Victoria sponge cake, and now I'm thinking that family time (and cake time ) may be a better choice......

Sorry and all that!

Had one of those 20 milers tday that makes you wonder how you can ever run 26.2 miles


21/07/2012 at 17:08

Ok YP do 4 miles at recovery pace asap and we wont tear gas your house,  kidnap your family and hold them hostage on a Chinese container ship somewhere on the Indian Ocean*.

The cake we chuck in the sea!


* this is known as the Jack Bauer protocol and pretty much always works.

7.54 for me today. Included wu, parkrun and cd. Nice to be running in some pleasant weather!

21/07/2012 at 20:47

Stephen- Love the commentary

YP- If you have the cake you will need the run all the more. And it's light until pretty late these days. Then, of course, there's always street lighting. See you later....

10.23m for me this evening- mainly nice and easy, except for the 10x100m strides on the track thrown in towards the end. Lovely and sunny with a nice breeze
