Sub 3:45 Group
Wow! Well done Stoker. Do you think it's all the sex?
No, I've read back, no mention of sex at all. Lots of bathing, and shitting in the woods, but no sex.
Seriously, it's a cracking time you must be over the moon. I have got a club place for London so I will be following a bit more closely too.
stoker - that is a brilliant result, really well done
Top running LS.
Just an 8.1 mile tempo run tonight. A couple of 9 min miles, 5 at +-7:45 then a mile and a bit warm down. On a bit of a mini-taper ahead of Sunday's HM, and didn't want a long run & 5-a-side double header yesterday.
Nice going Jack. You'll fly around that HM on Sunday.
Went for a 5 mile run with a colleague at lunch today, he wanted a tempo type session and I wanted something a bit easier as I have a proper speed session tomorrow with another colleague.Knocked out 5 miles at 7.30 pace. Threw in some fartlek elements and found it dead easy. Average HR was 145 but my colleague thanked me for his beasting and his average HR of 167.
It was the first time for ages I felt proper bouncy. maybe seeing the other bloke blowing out of his jaxy made me feel good about myself as I chatted away as if on a recovery run?!
Woking v Dartford tonight. Conference Premier relegation 6 pointer
We won 3-0!!!
Just looked at the results, Stoker. Always good to be on page 2 of the results sheets. My PB would be still only be in 35th position. even for a smaller event there are some fine runners and many older than me. I find it both inspiring and depressing in equal measure.

I remember when the google earth car went down your street LS!
just over five easy miles tonight, plan is just to get a routine going till Christmas then start the plan.
my race calendar is
27th Conway Half Marathon
8th Dec Stockport ten
26th Round the walls
19th Jan Four villages half marathon.
Well my ambition is 3:30 at london next year, how about you? Conway will be et round in one piece, but I'd like to be in the mid one-thirties for Four Villages.
We will see. It's easy to joke about all the things on the thread over the years, but all the lunchtime sessions you have described have stayed in my memory; I will be doing some Friday sessions and we have an unused floor in the office so Ican do some core work too.
Club night tonight, effort session, felt a bit heavy after last night but finished well.
Hi Mr P - great to see you on here again. It will be brilliant to get your sub 3.30 after some near misses, so I hope the training goes well. And nice to get a stack of races in the bag too
Sporty - I love those runs...have had a couple myself this week, just setting out to run by feel and suddenly I am feeling easy at 7.30 pace and feel like I could go on for ever!
I'm gearing up for the start of the VLM schedule too - have had a couple of not-so-great HMs recently (slower than I went through half way in London this year and feeling much much worse!), but they were done untapered and on fairly tired legs. Also my training over the summer was a bit sketchy for one reason or another, and things have improved in the last few weeks. Sub 3.15 pace seems a long way away but I'm going to give it a go and you never know! I'm not going to get many more chances for that sort of time so if I don't give it my all I'll regret it.
That said, it's intervals for me later today...6 x 1km at something a little quicker than 10k race pace.
Good to see the thread ticking over again.
Nice going there Freemers. I want to train for sub 3.15 with the intention of doing sub 3.20 in Brighton. My 12.6 miler at the weekend was so easy in difficult conditions, so I know I'm slightly ahead of my training schedule, so I'm having a lower mileage week this week.
I'm doing the Surrey HM in March. All being well I'll have some good speedwork in my legs and I'll be able to beat my 1.30 PB. Just 25 secs to shave off for a 1.29
Only sycophantic tossbags like BBC royal correspondents and arty types of the Brian Sewell ilk sound the H in ‘which’.
Glad to hear you’re getting some horizontal cross-training, Stoker. It’s vitally important to any running campaign. Make sure she knows that too and you log the activity on Fetcheveryone.com.
In fact, use a stopwatch and go for a personal best every few weeks. Inform the lass you’re on a tempo session and that she should see you rteally going for it at race pace! Better still, confuse her with intervals or even a fartlek session. You'll be marriage material before you know it!
I knew Ronnie was also a runner and he has some impressive times. Alas we have to do the 9 to 5 and don’t have the luxury of big blocks of free hours during the day like many sports and entertainment stars. Does that make our efforts all the more impressive?
Football club quiz tonight. Looks like I’ll be hammered on real ale by 11pm.
Having got a good run out of the way last night I have a rest day tomorrow. House potter in the morning followed by the big one of Woking v Hyde at 3pm.
Sunday will be a tempo 5 miler on the way home from the little lad’s football match. I did this run at the same fixture last November so it will be good to see if I'm better now than then. It's virtually a straight line from the pitch to home. Point to point running is so much more enjoyable than a loop.
A quick note: 4 miles at 6.40 pace tonight just before dinner. Happy with that, especially as it seems it is possible to get quicker with only 3 runs per week.
I managed 3:33 on three runs a week, it does work! How did Woking get on? I know what you mean about running a to b SB it just feels like you've got somewhere I think. I run back from the garage when I have one of the cars in, and sometimes I go to the station with Mrs P on a Saturday morning, there's a choice of routes between 12 and 22 miles then.
Hello Freemers, I hope I can keep up!
I went out for my run yesterday and got a bit carried away. I set out mid afternoon to do 12 miles but a couple of miles in decided to go along part of the Four Villages course, and take in a long hill in prep for next week, the Conway half has a long hard two mile climb. So I did, but it took me a bit further than planned, when I got back, I realised it was bang on 13.1 miles, so a new training route is born!
Stoker, what about a nice long plank??
