Sub 3:45 Group
how'do stoker - saw Dundee FC in the news last night and thought about you!
Good luck with the 1/2!
Saw Zuvai comment on here and popped in to see what he was saying... But now I'm here, Stoker I'm doing Dundee in a couple of weeks too. Have you done it before? I'm trying to get my head around the course. I'm thinking its three miles uphill followed by 10 miles down/flat/undulating and run both on and off road...?!!!
Minni meet Stoker! Stoker meet Minni!
haha - we should get freemers to pop her head in too so say hi & keep the old thread alive!
As if by magic....Hello everyone
minni - stoker has a pair of thighs to rival DD's. And he has some fantastic tips on pre-marathon fuelling, or at least which fried chicken outlet in London to avoid the night before VLM
Good luck with the domestic stuff Stokey Boy. I know it's been going on for a year or two now, can't have been easy. At least running has maintained your regular level of insanity.
I've been trying to up my game and run more regularly. 3 years ago I managed to run twelve consecutive 100 mile months and then the hip operation set me back. these days I barely hit 50 miles per month due to playing too much football and getting on the bike.
Did 9 very hot miles at 8 min pace on Sunday, 22 secs per mile slower than when I did it last month. The heat was definitely a factor so I'm not panicking. I can see that my interval sessions are paying off with other runs. A recent 6 miler at 7.17 pace was a good sign.
I've entered the ballot for London so maybe that will be a big motivator?
Off to watch Cav and Wiggo as they fly through our way on Saturday, then Team GB at wembley on Sunday. managed to get Team GB basketball tickets for next Saturday too. Really can't wait for the games to start. GO TEAM GB!!!
Great to see Freemers back in the room!!
Keep on keeping on, guys!
cracking run stoker - bet was great to be in a racing scenario!
Well done Stoker. I'll be a virtual training partner as I step up my autumn schedule.
Watched the cyclists on Saturday and went to the Wembley football yesterday. Fantastic to see so many different national supporters going to the different venues via London stations. Can't wait to see the basketball on Saturday.
Got into Wembley and was asked to give an interview to Swiss TV. Enjoyed that. #mediawhore
Anyone else got tickets?
Hi Stoker! Sorry I didn't see you (or rather your thighs!). I managed 1:38 but found it hard. I think those two downhill miles knackered me before I'd really got going! I quite enjoyed it and would do it again - a bit of everything thrown in really.
Minni ... I was just in front of you on Sunday. (1:38:18) My quads are still mashed after the long downhill.,miles 3-5 -ish. I run that bit of the route all the time (close to home) but not at sub 7 m/m pace. I found it surprisingly hard, given it's a net dwownhill course and the wind was favourable..
Stoker, it's all in the mind. If you can run 11.6 miles in 1:36 at 8:17 pace you've only 1.5 miles to add for a sub 1:50, and that's on a training run. I think you should be running sub 8m/m, and with 3 months to Glen Clova HM and your new training regime sub 1:40 beckons, nae bother. Give me a call if you want to go for an evening run sometime (I'll look out some shades to protect my eyes from the reflection of your milky thighs)
4 weeks to the Hghland Perthshre marathon, first mara for 2 years, so really looking forward to that. No particular target, though sub 3:30 would be nice, but really a building block for an assault on the PB in 2013.
SB, sounds like you are having a great time@olympics ... can I have your autograph? Watched the highlights of the GB wimmin vs Brazil last night ... good stuff.
Fingers crossed for Wiggins today.
