Doppyashton with Gobi
Well done .. much deserved!!Special mention to Tri Big Rich for a close second looking for the 3.15 mark
Excellent news!! Well done!
A popular winner
Doppy ... just keep an eye on this threadGobi is your mentor and I have no doubt he will be in as and when he can
Well done Doppy! good luck lass in getting that 3 hour target!
This certainly wins the 'least surprising match up' award.

I'm a Newbie to this, but I think this means I am gonna be mentored? What happens now ? Sorry to be so clueless !
You have to go and live with Gobi at his monastery in Tibet, where through meditation you will learn the way of the LSR.
Tee hee Well done, lots of people behind you wanting you to get there!
So great to have Gobi back as a mentor......
looks like we might have a sub 3 thread worth watching
Congrats Doppy, I do enjoy reading how the speedsters go about it,
Ah, excellent. I look forward to following your journey!
Now I'm nervous. Who is this Gobi! monastery in Tibet sounds ok with me. Warmer than here! Thanks Rich. it's a long time since anyone's called me lass. Grew up in Scotland where every female was a lass.
Congratulations Doppy! Put me down as aspirational lurker.
ha ha! your welcome! Hope you don't mind me following your progress? I'm keen to see what sort of pacing and training your doing to get the sub 3. I'm going to be trying that next year. wee bit fast for me at the moment.. think it's great you were picked for this though! Good luck with the schedule.
knightrider I have put all those details at the beginning of the rw forum 6. started the P&D. 55-70 12 week plan last week but think i may change to RW. Don't like the 2 long runs in the mid week and feel there is too much slow running and not enough faster stuff.
doppy - so pleased you got this thread. I think that while you may have a bit to learn about marathon training you have a lot to offer us *ahem* more mature ladies about what you've achieved in this past year.
Like chick I am nowhere near your level but did run 3:15 last year and will be looking for slightly faster this year, which I'm confident about doing. I'm completely crap at shorter distance though.
