Phil - you're not doing VLM next year? Thought that was going to be my chance to see the infamous shorts in real life.
love it stevie! I have to know its actually killing me :P
If you want to know Samir I did 10 x hill sprints tonight 9but 10 mins continious hill work) followed by 8 mins steady...
I'm excited for my park run Saturday now-- Samir is there one local? You should do some next year in the build up to your 10km if you gonan do it. Did you decide on anotehr HM as well I may have missed that
lit - Probably not, I've put in for the Berlin ballot so working around Autumn mara plans now. The shorts will be getting many outings next year, I'm sure we can organise something.
Of course, if we can't wait until May we could always have a thread smackdown at the national xc championships in Feb. That way I'd get to watch the men's race while eating popcorn.
Hmmm... I'm definitely up for the national xc, but I'm not sure I want my red shorts getting muddy. I normally get the black ones out, but they're only marginally more decent.
It is because you have only done one race. You can set up a profile and then add that race onto it as being you.
Does he need to register on power of 10 first
No, anyone can have a runbritain profile. I thought they just put you on power of 10 if you were fast enough. Or in a club.
Samir why are you classed as senior when you should be U23?
Target time is good.. Clearly thats going to take some heavy training
We were only doubting it because you posted I can run 9 miles in training at x pace and then wanted to run 5 miles longer and massivley reduce the time with no evidence of other training..
The 31:30 10KM isnt going to come by magic but now we all can sit back and watch you run 31:30 - and then claim about being injured, at uni 24/7, hardly any training etc and think - you've really not gained much by doing that!
So..Samir what happened to the injury? 2nd year at UNi and stuff? dismissing some Qs by people really doesnt help when your claiming what you are
First race under that name for definite
First race at all? Impossible to prove
Because he doesn't have a profile yet, Scott. Runbritain is just listing the results however the Ealing HM organisers submitted them. They probably didn't use an U23 category.
I thought you was 20?
I'm not quite sure how you've got that time coming of running those "training times" and then that HM pace but will be interesting to see how close you get off what training..
I am running a race in January and aiming for a less modest 35:00
being that I haev a 5Km PB of 16:50
and do much less than 40 miles a week
Samir - When you set up and paid entered and raced the HM..
You're the only one they ignored how old you were?
It would automatically put your age ranking according to your entry in the HM,,
Very strange..1st or second year at UNi?
Oops, sorry, meant to say, not listed as U23 because it's a MASSIVE conspiracy targeted solely at Scott. Really Samir is 30 with 10 years of 100 mile weeks behind him.
To go from nothing to 143rd in the country for 10k in 2 1/4 years. At 20ish
Very reasonable aim
31:30 would also put you in the top 150 atheltes (based on this year - road)
And from what I can see 10 are u23...
I am going to be 25 by the time the Bupa 10KM is...
My friend has a 30:06 10KM PB :S
My friend was ranked 48th in UK last year over 10KM
His brother has a 30:53 PB -
I watched the race on the Isle of Wight after recovering from my operation back in 2011.. Natwest Island games..
31:30 is very fast...
samir has a 100% success rate, once he sets a target he achieves it. He has proved that with his hm a bit over 80 mins. If he says he is targeting 31.30 then I'm on board. come on everyone it's not like he just picked that time out thin air, he has thought about it.
