Thanks Sarah........it was weird seeing it, as it was completely different to how I remembered it. Maybe it was a bit too honest though!

Just popping in to say a quick HI before the day is out......

Agreed Shady_Ady on the video, my hubbi & I were just watching it and you really made us laugh . I also laughed and fully agree with SLB's comment earlier today... 

"- Andrew - will be interesting to do a poll of how many of us have lost our jobs by the end of this process!"

Work again for me tomorrow morning  xox

Hey Clive  - I use a Garmin. Love mine! Have a 305. Tells me when I'm going too slow which is a good thing!

Andrew - Eek  - don't say that! I'm a valuable asset apparently. (Shhh! Don't tell them I'm here!)

Thanks A.W I will try remember that when I'm at the start line with a big red suit and beard... At least if I'm sick I can do it in my beard and nobody will know?!

Guys I've never used a farming is it something I should be considering? They are an expensive bit of kit but it sounds to me like they are very much worth it?
07/12/2012 at 23:30
Garmin not farming although could that be useful.? Lol predictive!!!!!

Runnyrunrun - deal!

Night night people time to go dream of #target262
07/12/2012 at 23:35
Been using my same farming 310 XT since beginning 2010, definitely worth it for those PB's Andrew!

I would be lost without my Garmin! Felt naked without It at BC - that's why I tailgated Ady in the pacing session

Ady - what are you talking about, your interview was brilliant!

RRR, you were great too!

Doc Sarah - shot blocks eh? Might have to try them.

Malcs.......and there was me thinking I was using my Garmin cunningly and no one knew!  Obviously I'm not as clever as I thought 

All this talk of pre-marathon food, I have to say I still like the old favourites of jelly babies and jaffa cakes. I eat so many of them before my marathons that I can't look at them again for weeks after!

Morning! Laid in bed wide awake thinking of target 262 I was kind of hoping for a lie in!
08/12/2012 at 06:29
Morning. Blimey. You are up early. Target 262 on the brain but the only reason I'm up this early is starting my 7 hour journey to Wales! Are you out for an early run?
08/12/2012 at 07:59
it's a beautiful morning here in Wales! I'm off out for a lovely coast run with some friends soon. enjoy the weekend shady-ady
08/12/2012 at 08:22
Morning all. Ady - 7 hours? Presumably you're on public transport, either that or in a very slow car,

Andrew - I think we all know how you feel, go to bed excited, wake up excited. Thankfully it wasn't 5 am for me though!

Jen - didn't know you we're in Wales, which part?

Anyone following the cricket?
08/12/2012 at 08:40

Morning early risers... Malcs England are closing in!!  Jen enjoy your run in Wales; it sounds stunning! & Shady_Ady if you're going for a run later?

Half day of work for me this morning, running club Christmas Dinner & Party tonight, Turkey Run dressed as a Spiced Girl or Super Girl tomorrow morning, my husband's birthday on Monday, mine on Tuesday, voting closes Wednesday!! So much exciting stuff going on!!!

08/12/2012 at 08:54

Morning everyone, yes Malc I was wondering if Ady was cycling?

It is a sunny moring here with less wind and dry!  I am on a rest day to day and on Christmas tree duty with the kids

Yes, Jenf hope you have a good run like to know where abouts?

CaroT - very busy but fun few days - mmmm running club chrismmas party will you be partying hard? or taking steady with sparkling mineral water - I have my works do on Friday 14 Dec could go either way!

 

RRR - just seen the Bootcamp interview very good much better than mine!

Clive - have a look at  "Heart Monitor Training for the Compleat Idiot" by John L Parker Jr.  It is the book that got me into running in the first place.  I always gave up before reading that book - because I didn't realise I was training too hard too often.  Result = burnout!

The HRM is invaluable when it comes to running recovery runs.  You can see at a glance whether the pace you think is easy is genuinely easy.

I don't go in for heart rate zones as such, as advised by John LPJ.  Easy runs below "recovery threshold", and hard runs above "threshold floor".  Keeping records of heart rates on some benchmark runs is a great motivator for me too.  I can see I'm getting fitter, even if I don't always feel like it.

Don't know why I'm telling you this - you're a squillion times faster than me

Haha not cycling.Relying on the good old services of National Rail and paying ??86 for the privilege.

I am watching the cricket. Well watching the ball by ball updates on BBC. Not quite the same. I can't believe the turnaround from the 1st test. It's all down to Monty!

Sadly no run today. It's my rest day. Plus going to Wales to see my brothers family he might take offence if I spent my time running rather than seeing my god children. Looking forward to running tomorrow though. It's always nice running in a new location.
08/12/2012 at 09:15
Tenjiso.....Xyloid mentioned exactly the same book on my thread. I've never thought heart rate monitors were an integral part of training until reading people's comments here. I'll tell my brother to buy it for my Xmas present. He'll be happy for the idea. When I didn't give him an idea last year I only got chocolate raisins!
