Stills you deserve a medal for getting up at that time!

SLB I once left the house in PJ's, luckily I only made it to the local shop when I noticed. It could have been a very embarrasing day at school otherwise!

DS2 Thankyou for that, its nice to have positive feedback like hat, it make you happy to go to work and shows that people do actually appreciate the hard work you put in (rather than all that negativity in the press)

Haha Seren nos, ive been thinking exactly the same about reg's picture, i keep doing a double take!

I presumed that tamsin was just busy or something so hasnt had time to post. I didnt meet her at BC either, hope shes ok.

Im guessing and hoping that they didnt put my bit on camera on the website...would be so embarrasing!

Thanks for clearing the air with that one seren. Like Sarah, I'd wondered this too but didn't feel I had the authority to point it out - needed someone with forum clout

Psst, Sarah - it's 'sills' not 'stills'. At least you didn't call him 'stools' although it seems that might be quite appropriate for Reg

I'm definitely with those releaved my interview didn't make the really was shocking, I just hope there's no outtakes leak down the road  

Ady, RRR, Tigger, you did us all proud!

Sarah, I think the early runs are going to become the other way to get the miles up, but going by last nights activity on here, I hit the sack a little earlier than most

What have you heard? Have you been on to my branch? Have you spoken to some friends? 

This is why I have to run at the back of a group, its quite lonely at times.

we can put that one down to a typo Sarah

My interview was pretty shocking too to be fair!? I made no sense what so ever and walked off trying to work out what the hell I'd just said. It made no sense to me at all so goodness knows how it came across on camera?!

I managed to squeeze my standard 10k run in this lunch time kept it nice and steady finishing it in 44.49. Got a santa run on SAt so lloking forward to that, it should be fun. Its 4.4miles which is not a distance I normally run so will be good to mix things up a bit and will allow me to experminet with my speed. Would like to finish it Sub 28mins but that will depend on the course I suppose and how many santa get in my way!

Reg . I'm afraid the word is out my friend. You certainly didn't help by using a photo of you on the job as your forum pic. Do you have a web cam in there?

07/12/2012 at 16:40

What are the plans for the weekend? Im saying I want a sub 28 time on my santa run but have just remembered i have tickest to the derby v leeds game tomorrow with full hospitality meaning 3 course meal with unlimited free booze?!?! That could have a slight impact on my time?! lol

07/12/2012 at 16:47

Only have a web cam at work as my boss thought I was wasting too much time.

Apparently it was a time and motion study and I was the perfect candidate!

07/12/2012 at 16:48

Santa always manages to get it done in super quick time whilst drinking on the job

07/12/2012 at 16:48
just watched bootcamp video. glad some of us made enough sense to make the cut. I'm still gutted tigger didn't get through!

I spoke to tamsin a bit last Friday...but no idea what s happened to her.

hope weather good at weekend I fancy nice long beach run to blow cobwebs away!
07/12/2012 at 16:50

Another one here glad my interview wasn't in the final vid.

I just froze and the mumbled out what probably sounded like incoherent nonsense! Cant really remember what I said!

I think the videos great though.

07/12/2012 at 16:55

The video is pretty amazing! It has made me feel proud and part of something really special!! Its really good!!!

07/12/2012 at 17:08

Andrew - go for the footy, it might be the last one you're last allowed if you make it through! Clive knows what this does to your guts and even he's recommending it



07/12/2012 at 17:23
Reginald lol, it's the pies that keeps me going on the long runs, I'm thinking maybe I could get some extra votes through Pukka Pies. I'm with everyone on the video interview, I turned into a gibbering idiot within seconds, they probably had to get a translator to figure out what I was saying
07/12/2012 at 17:25

sorry Sills, me getting carried away with the typing...thanks for pointing that out Malcs (I may have gotten away with it otherwise)!

Just watched the video...its fab, I want a copy!

According to the video, the team will be using MyAsics to generate a plan, so I thought I'd register and see what it's like.

I can choose the number of days to run per week.... 2, 3 or 4    I can't change it to five, six or seven.  Changing my training from four days to two days per week added just over two minutes to my predicted marathon time at average pace.  The three longest runs are 15m, 17.5m and 20m.  So it looks like it's easy street for a sub-4:00 marathon.

Good luck to anybody using this to generate a plan

07/12/2012 at 17:37

I was surprised to see that on there - we weren't told anything about this or did I miss something?
