12m for the day

17/02/2013 at 12:40

Well today didn't go to plan for me! Ran the first 10 as planned, but the gale force headwind from 7-10m saw me fighting to get back to the start in time- lol! Wasn't happy realising that i would have to face this again!! Got back to start, but no time for drink before the off. Had a drink at 13m- in hindsight too much and was promptly sick for the next mile or so, prompting 2 stops. this along with the wind made me decide to ditch the mp effort and just run it easily. Still miles in the bank! 20.01m an a bit of a warm up (jog from the car) for 20.15m

Afternoon all

18 for me today.....

Gaz - I'm very jealous of the sub 40 10k.... I've been banging on that door for about 9 months, but the closest I've got is 40:39...

Barry B - be careful with the calf.

Cheers Dave, good luck with the wife!

All good miles Jason.

YP, its took me just under a year to shave the last minute off my 10K time. Keep at it, it'll come!


I had a great day today. knocked a smidgen under 2 minutes off my HM PB time down to 1:28:15 on the back of a 70 mile training week and a 20 mile run on Thursday. Very happy camper to get under 40 mins for 10K and under 1:30 for the Half in the space of a week without compromising my training.

Gaz- well done
17/02/2013 at 20:35
Fantastic running Gaz

Cheers Jason, Tek. Its all down to volume and the once a week (begrudging) 5 mile tempo run.

Gaz -  Well done on your HM PB, you are flying. Mara PB soon?

Tried running as my calf felt better, but pain has come back so going to try X training for the rest of the week. So probably not much more from me this month.

I hope so Barry. I'm currently on 3:16 which was run when I was clocking 1:33 ish for the Half so hopefully I can improve on that in April at Manchester marathon.

Gaz -  Looks very doable, I converted a 1:28 HM to 3:15:08 at Abingdon last year, was happy with the PB, but  thought I was going to get GFA but struggled in last 3. Lady luck was shining though and I got a ballot place for VLM this year.

Nice stroke of luck! I take it the GFA time was sub 3:15 and you missed out by 8 seconds? Ouch!

6 slow miles this morning on aching legs, 7 slow miles this evening on much better, but still tired, legs.

Hi guys- back from the dead again!! I ran our local bumpy trail parkrun in a comfortable 20.08 today, but apart from a recovery run on Monday followed by a sports massage that has been it! This happens EVERY February- work just gets so hectic at this time of year that running has to take a back seat. Might well have to reassess my target for VLM, but hey- ho.... The bonus is that the (teaching) job lets me train like a demon for autumn maras

Are we going again?  If yes, can someone get hold of Bruce to reset the page?

03/03/2013 at 16:33

I'm going again - well I would be if I hadn't injured myself on todays run


03/03/2013 at 17:38
