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

04/10/2013 at 20:54

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.

04/10/2013 at 21:03

Samir why are you classed as senior when you should be U23? 

Target time is good.. Clearly thats going to take some heavy training

04/10/2013 at 21:06

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

04/10/2013 at 21:08

First race under that name for definite

First race at all? Impossible to prove

04/10/2013 at 21:09

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.

04/10/2013 at 21:09

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 

04/10/2013 at 21:10

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? 

04/10/2013 at 21:11

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.

04/10/2013 at 21:11


To go from nothing to 143rd in the country for 10k in 2 1/4 years. At 20ish

Very reasonable aim


04/10/2013 at 21:14

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 

04/10/2013 at 21:16

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...


04/10/2013 at 22:58
You need to log into power of 10 then go on runbritain and search for yourself in a race as they dont know who you are yet , after that it will be automatic with results.
for a 31 min 10k you would need to be around a 70 min half .
04/10/2013 at 23:23

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.

04/10/2013 at 23:36

I didn't expect that... Yes an 80 HM is more achievable than a 31:30 10km seeing as thats the top 150 in the UK

And theres only 10 u23s that have done it on the track....

Obviously Samir dipping questions about his age the fact it says senior on his profile starts making things look more suspect but if hes really that ages then well done...

And Dean yes he thought about it - but the whole point was that he came on here making out he was terrible then decided he ran 40 miles a week then suddenly was injured...


Let it be know now that if he runs a 31:30 10KM

it's not goign to be without serious training serious mileage - so he's only going to kid himself by being dishonest.. Not gaining anything really is he now 


04/10/2013 at 23:37

So Samir.. What happens when it comes out that your not at uni.. possibly over 23 and been running a long time instead of (actualyl we don't know what you actualyl do) LOL
