A great prize & challenge
Enjoy the holiday Clive. Thanks for the good wishes re: the race on Sunday (and sarah as well!)
With all the Paris excitement I completely forgot you had Paddock Wood this weekend. Looks like it might be a little warmer than it's been for the last few days which will be nice for you.
Best of luck. What's your target for this one?
I missed your earlier post about Paris too. Strange but I had completely forgotten than we were all just one step away from the Paris adventure. At the time I remember feeling gutted for quite a while.
However, I'm sure you'll all agree that it would have been hard to put any more into it than the five they chose. They have all been amazing.
I now know for sure that I wouldn't have been able to match Ady. He has been outstanding both with the training and on his thread.
I do feel a bit jealous of everyone going off to Paris this weekend, not just the Asics comp guys but everyone. I feel ready to race now and I don't want the weather to have too much time to warm up too much! Also, I am an emotional wreck at taper time so two weeks of mental torture is not something I'm looking forward to!
Clive - happy holidaying! Hope you have decent weather there, it's just Wales I want to stay cold (and London for Sarah of course)
Well congratulations to all us hard core bootcampers who've stuck it out on this thread, DS2, Malcs, Clive, Sarah, Tigger, (and the others who drop in occasionally!) I think we all rock! we may not have made it to Paris, but I think we've all done ourselves proud.
Well said Jen!
Btw. my mother-in-law tells me the wind down there has been terrible this week. I'm praying it sorts itself out for two week's time. If it doesn't then make no mistake, I will be holding you to your riot shield offer!
I'm sure I must have made some soppy comment at some point, but well we have all won, maybe not the competition but new friends!!
Gush Gush.... now wheres that pint??
Whoa - 6:50 is quite a speed. Really hope you do it. 75:30! Well, you never know but at least it happened. I'll never be that quick.
Tigger - are you drunk yet?
Well Malcs I felt it was only fitting as our famous 5 were unable to get sloshed that I should do it for them!! Haha taking one for the Team!!
They have all done so well! I will be entering again next year thats for sure!! Think possitive.... I will have to train like a demon if Im going to do DS2's Little Birthday Marathon bash as well
Malcs - have you heard how Ady and Mel got on yet? Alex suggested on his thread that they all ran really well and another poster said she had looked and Ady had done well but I can't find his result?
DS2 - bit late to post but as you've seen Ady did brilliantly coming in at 3:29:43, just what he wanted. Just Mel to hear from now for a clean sweep.
Great result in your race. Even if it was hard, to run your best race in 19 years is quite something. You say touch and go for 3:15 but you have a superb endurance base so whilst 7mm may have been tough you might find 7:25mm just takes the edge off and with your endurance you might be able to keep that up for much longer.
I'm such a hypocrite in saying this but you have to stay positive!
I can't believe I just said that - I'm the world's biggest worrier
Clive - I'm terrible. The missus is dreading the next two weeks. Her only relief is that I'm not yet carrying an injury, or at least I don't yet believe that I am
DS2 - glad to hear you're feeling positive, would be fantastic for you to make London for your birthday.
Did a little speed run today with 3 miles at HM pace and the foot was fine all the way through for the first time in weeks. I was wearing older socks - surely that couldn't be significant? Taper madness starting maybe
You are looking well set Malcs. The niggles are going just at the right time!
I reckon 3 pairs of old socks might do the trick!
