SB - based on my marathon times, I'll pwn you all
Reikki - nice one! Have you decided on a plan to follow, and when will you start? You're HM time is faster than mine, so I'd say you have a better chance than me. Oakley is indeed three weeks before Brighton on 24th March (unusually next year, it is four weeks before London).
Not if we 'pwn' you first - care to explain yourself? It helps if you stop dribbling on the keyboard - tut tut
I am up for the mileage comp SB the only issue is need to run a "m" in 2013.........have to log my miles in Run Britain from January 1st then........
Cup of tea time anyone. Getting dark here and wet stuff coming out of the sky again. Going to get wet me thinks again..Love thy neighbour as thyself but choose your neighbourhood.
What is Ten up to????
If we keep this chat up all day we can keep Asics off the top of the page!!! Really must do some work now goodbye.
Choisty - Yep - I thought I'd go with a Boston qualifying time and anything below that a win! What was Paris course like? I reckon I should be able to knock quite a few mins off of my marathon time if there isn't a hill like Parliament Street at mile 22
MCS - Yep - was me at bootcamp last year! Bootcamp was my first introduction to a running track - I got a bit (EXTREMELY) carried away but nailed the pacing this year ... was bang on what I'd written on my entry - to the second! Thought I'd better show I could actually do the whole pacing thing this year!
SB - Was just talking about you on my Forum thread! I said how you'd shown me that a sub-4 on the first go was possible! (It seemed such an impossible target a year ago!)
RR - You doing Reading half again in 2013? I did it this year but the dual carriageway bit at the end was was boring ... as for the doubling back ...! Have you done Bristol? Really enjoyed that one this year - bit more to look at and distract me!
RRR - I'm always right I am . Glad I helped plant of seed of belief in your swede - that's all it takes for some folks.
I remember thinking 'gee whizz' when you went off at about sub 20 pace! But your 10k PB was faster than mine so I didn't think to grab you by the elastic and calm you down a bit. Still .... it's all worked out for the best and all that!
Think Ten has had something-to-keep-the-chill-out in his tea today!
Go careful out there mcs - has been a real hoot here today watching Rascal do Bambi impressions on the iced over puddles! Knowing how you like your local races - what about this one?white-peak-marathon.
SB - Remember you reining me in with appropriate galloping motions when I started pegging it in Sam's session last year though! Hee hee! Live and learn ... and come back for a second go ...!
My horsey!!!!!!!!!! He's alive and well I assure you - regularly comes out for a gallop! I was merrily jurmping over some gymkhana jumps that were set up in a field on a club run over the summer. My current clubmates didn't know me that well at that point and I think were a little worried.... they know what to expect now!
If I'm reading SB's competition correctly:
Lots of running + crap marathon time = winner
Thus...... I pwn.
PWN (verb) An act of dominating an opponent.
Ahhhh of course (thank goodness for wikipedia) - you're using that "down-with-the-kidz" type lingo again!!!!
No - lots of running = winner (of which there'll be 3 as decided by how they also do in their marathon of choice). Most miles per marathon time category..
I'm about to take away your professor status
So far the contestants are:
Entries close midnight on New Year's Eve - no further entrants will be admitted buyond those fateful bells!
You bunch of annoyances you know I can't resist a competition...my mileage this year so far is 2955 (according to my Garmin), with the longest month being January...special mention must go to March and September though as both topped 300 too. Longest week was 97! Not sure I will go that far next year although a 100 mile week might happen. Looks like I will top 3,000 for the first time this year.
All I need now is to go back to running 6:43 marathons!
Choisty - you must have the biggest improvement record of any sub 2:45 marathoner. 6:43 to 2:43 amazing. Did you hop the first one?
hee hee hee
DS2, took fifteen years and around 30,000 miles, but the journey was fun
SB, based on that entry list, can we have Ten go straight to doping control?
Choisty - even more impressive then! Shows what consistent training can achieve!
This thread looks good fun. I will lurk a little longer and see if I can work out what's going on!
Good luck with that!!!! We're here every day and we rarely know...
Join in our little comp if you like - the more the merrier - general idea was formed a page or so ago!
Choisty - I don't think they've yet invented a test for what he's on!!!!!
Yippee - just log your miles next year (ideally on runBritain so we can all spy on you) and do at least one mara next year....Simples
(no where are the rest of the usual suspects????? - Shall we just rope them in without their consent I wonder....)
