Hi all, im back again, i keep losing the thread name and cannot find you all, doh!!
Anyway, wow Daz superman still, what a cracking time, very well done to you. Well
Ive entered the London as well as Trig and VB, but ive also secured a place for the
Brighton, as some of you know, I am mad, im not sure my body will ever forgive me,
but i have new running partners and neither have done one, so i thought id help
them along. Has anyone done the Brighton and whats it like in comparison to
Wow Clarki - way to go lady! Good to have you back. I lost this thread (as well as the plot) for a while. Nice to see us all returning to the fold!
Clarki... Vikki on FB has done Brighton. It is hilly but ok if the wind doesn't blow along the seafront. I have put in the ballot ( London ) as well and hope it will be my swan song. Yes my very last marathon. Not to say I wil not be doing smaller distances. i hope to be helping out at Brighton as a marshal so maybe see you there.
Cheers guys - had a week off running as a rest and then ran again on Sat and Sun, felt OK. Dunno whether to do a proper race report as last year, it would be depressing reading.
Gatton - I'll give you all some virtual coaching next year if necessary, but not sure you'd want to follow my advice lol
Caro - I did remember where you stood and I saw you last year (just after Mile 17 marker I think) and I did look out for you to no avail. However, imo there were many more people in that area this year.
I might apply for a GFA entry for VLM again this year.
Welcome back Clarki, you'll have to do both of them lol
Daz I am never too old to take any advice......
Hi guys, did the Bristol 10k yesterday and again surprised to see my times improving, although not a PB for me, i did 49 about 4 years ago, however i had got up to a 54 last year, but did a 52.36 in Feb and did a 51.17 yesterday, so very very pleased with myself. All this cross training, squats, kettle bells and step classes is paying off, ive not done as much mileage but getting better times Goal to do a sub 50 for 10k this year.
Happy running out there guys
Way to go Clarki. keep up the good work..
We all could do with some advice Gatton!
Well done Clarki, doing great. You'll soon have that sub-50 10K again, keep up the good work.
Wow - been a while since I've been on here, prompted by watching a little race on TV yesterday.
Sad to hear you didn't get in, here's fingers crossed for you all next year
Hi Trigg, I trust all is well?
Not running much, only one race last year, VLM. Been training on and off, but ruptured my achilles tendon again at end of Jan, so really done very little and hence no VLM this year.
Glad you and VB enjoyed the spectating, we did consider coming up for the weekend to watch, but it clashed with a friend's wedding. I jokingly told a few people on the Saturday night bash that I was running VLM the following morning, and some did actually believe it. I must still look the part and can obviously talk the talk even if I cant walk the walk.
Notwithstanding that, at lunchtime today I did my first run in about 3 weeks, a gentle 3.53 miles, felt ok'ish and tendon only a little sore now. I'll be back!
It's always tragic when there is an incident such as the man dieing, I guess the only consolation is that he was doing something he enjoyed, and that he has now raised a very large amount of money for his chosen charity.
Catch you all soon!
