Oh, just for the record, I really appriciate the sentiment about our little group oscarr!

And I've run 1195.96 miles so far this year. Need greater consistency over time, rather than the peaks and troughs that appear to have developed.

How are you all?! x

What should my Frankfurt target be then?!

Competition - I'll never get close ... can we do time on feet as I am so bloody slow. Tee hee!

Hey Em  ((( ))) I said hello to you somewhere else but you were off on one about traithlons and ignored me (s'alrite - I didn't cry for too long?)

You can't choose your category yet Bo - depends on what time you run next year that way those of us who run slower can stay in the slower categories and our mileages will be more comparable - based on Em's concept - ie time on feet = a rough mileage within certain marathon achievement ranges! If you go quicker - then you'll be comparing mileages with people who also run a similar number of miles per hour.  Ish - you get my drift!

Hope that made sense - it did as I wrote it!

As we stand:

SORRY SB!!!!!! x

I am rather giddy about my new challenge!

Work has been hell recently and I'm half asleeo most of the time x

I will endeavour to keep a log from 1st Jan! I will also try and post my elf picture after the race at the weekend!

Arrrrrhhhhhh, I get it.... After reading it three times just to be sure... *slowly banging head on wall moaning about an unnamed professional group who shall remain nameless*

Bang, bang bang bang...

LOL loopy lous the pair of you ((( ))) but lovin' the excitement Em - I'm feeling the same about my big adventure with oscarr!

Frankfurt wise - I reckon you should be aiming sub 4:15 - have you told your mum yet? Thought you were grounded when it came to maras???

Wowsers what a night here - stormy stormy - consequently not the best sleep I've ever had - still only an easy one with Rascal and some yoga to do today.

This is the 2nd week on the trot that I haven't ached after my once-a-week gym sesh - it's a bit mind bending! Am deffo gonna try and stick to at least one trip there a week - I know I won't do it at home by myself so the commitment to a class/session is essential!

Can't get interested in the Asics voting - probably cos I put so much into this years process that I don't have the energy to start again with a new lot and the last lot were such a good bunch that I feel a real association with.
07/12/2012 at 09:54

Must admit I'm a bit bored of it already now - I still haven't cast my second vote (aka Ben's vote).  It's tough when we've already been on the journey ourselves...

We do have a nice little forum-family don't we - at least that's how I regard you lot!

How's Wales?  Any sign of the little 'un yet?

Sorry guys, seems my posts sometime get sent again when I refresh the page.

Great to hear from you Bo and Emm.

Yes, SB, it really is a running family on this forum and one I really enjoy being part of and great we meet up now and again at races.

No sign of next grandchild yet but reckon she won't go beyond end of next week. Great to spend time with them. Back home today - I have a major document to prepare for an application to the tax man so better get my stronger thinking cap on during the journey!

Aye, I feel at home here..although I'm interested in the voting, just have ricky some advice but I can't vote for someone who didn't know championship qualifying was open to him already.

SB, how can we sort things out with RunBritian, shall we follow each other?

BoD being up and down with your training is called periodisation and it is what all the pros do..although it's not generally due to the weather or OH!!!

Last nights session was double hard 5 x 1M @ 5:12 pace with 2:30 jog recovery, only two of us finished the last rep! and I wanted to 

07/12/2012 at 10:09

Eurrrrggggggggghhhh - go for a run instead - as long as you can outrun him you should be ok!

07/12/2012 at 10:18

Choisty - your jog recoveries are probably faster than my sprints.

07/12/2012 at 10:21

Ten, not last night I was hardly moving I looked like the queen mum in her last few public engagements

07/12/2012 at 10:22

07/12/2012 at 10:23

Something weird going on...

07/12/2012 at 10:39 worries I'm all over the RW for the last year the name is Tolhurst, Lee Tolhurst!!!

07/12/2012 at 10:42

Of course - I was just thinking - I'm sure I'd seen your full name somewhere - DOH!
