Dubai Dave v Bruce C
"I have done 2 marathons and numerous halves with PB's at 4:22 for the full (Chester 2011) and 1:49 for a half (Warrington 2010). I run 3 /4 times a week and am not a member of a club, mainly I think due to preference of running alone whenever I want to rather than having specified times etc.What do I want to achieve? A sub 4:10 full with a view to going sub 4, but would like to be realistic in my aims, with the main one to be able to run one without a walk break in the latter miles."
Two of my favourite forum guys, congrats!
well done Bruce!
you've struck gold with your mentor - he's a very knowledgable person who is very generous with it too!
good luck with the training and ultimately the race!
Well done Bruce. I'm so pleased you got through. I'm looking forward to following your thread with DD. He's a very good mentor and he'll get you out working your butt off and at times you may hate him but in the end you will love him!
One other thing - he normally posts about 4 in the morning!
Thanks guys, I'm a little lost for words, and not least a little scared now, its all just got a bit real .
Hopefully however that will soon change, and would just like to say a huge thanks involved and would like to extend an open invite to all those aiming for similar times or just similar running aims to join the thread.
I will also endeavour to deliver at least one cute doggy picture a week, along with regular Inuit updates as they join me in my training (in fact I am being 'informed' this moment tha tis past their walkies time!!).
Frodo, I shall indeed be at Helsby on Sun, looks like I need to do some of this running stuff !
*inserts red carnation in lapel, folds newspaper on lap, and waits nervously for mentor to come along*
As Minni has said I tend to post early in the morning after I have had my coffee, thought about life and read whats going on with the thread.
Right firstly lets start with you,
On the assumption you don't know anything about me
So please give me a breakdown of what your weekly training looks like plus any cross training etc that you might get up to and we will crack on.
lastly I believe that your goal is easily achievable for you but your probably going to have to run a a bit more than 3 or 4 times a week to get there. Good luck
