Well done Vik!  I will be following the thread, and (very probably) following you home at Brighton.

hey everyone!

I don't really know where to start and honestly, I'm not normally stuck for words but what an amazingly cool thing to win!

my pitch at the top sums it up well, I want to nail it this year in Brighton and I hope you'll all come along for the ride!

Flatfooted what do you need from me? I'm basically following the ultimate sub 4.30 plan tweaked a bit as I do shift work so it has to fit around my days off! but I am open to suggestions of other ideas!

I've been pretty good up until last week when I missed two runs due to a painful shin and my bestfriends hen do but am back on the plan as of tomorrow!

I have a couple of bottles of bubbles left from the hen do..... anyone mind if I crack them open and we all have a glass?

Vik - Hope to see you on the start line ay Brighton. Good luck.

Right then...so many questions!!..Is the ultimate sub 4.30 plan a RW plan?, when did you start it, average weekly milage, What and when were your last 10k and HM times? Do you run with a club or on your own?

I think that will do for starters.

17/01/2012 at 07:21

It's ok i found the Ultimate plan...can't get into it mind as its in subscribers bit though!! Have you got it on excel or like?

If that plan is working for you then i would definatly not look to change it, maybe tweak it but we'll see.

Another question do you record your runs anywhere/use a garmin or alike, which will show splits/pace.

As Meldy has pointed out i'm running Brighton as well, havent concentrated on marathons for a few years but do have a best of 3.15, hoping to get around 3.45 this year...like you i hate it being warm, would much rather run in a minus 20 blizzard.

Of to work for me...catch up with you soon

Morning all!!

 Wow- 3.15 for a marathon I'm in awe!!

Welcome Spence- good to have you along!!

Tracey and Helen- definitely see you at the start line and even more definitely in the pub afterwards

KK- sticks of rock all round I feel, just watch the teeth i lost a crown just after Brighton last year indulging in a stick I was not happy but my dentist undoubetedly was.....

 Len- you'll love London I still get goosebumps thinking of it- I'll be at Mudchute so will give you a big cheer!!

Waves to everyone else

Right

The plan seems to be going ok- last year I used Shades 3 run a week plan which really worked for me but this year I'm aiming for 4 runs a week!

I have a garmin and no doubt will bore you all senseless with data

I run on my own but would love to join a club but the mental hours at work mean I havent got round to it yet!

My half marathon PB is 2.13 set at Brighton Half last year

10k PB is 1.02 but havent raced a 10k for about 2 years- but am looking forward to finding one to take part in soon!

17/01/2012 at 10:25

Right im going to try and get my plan up onto some kind of googledocs or something but bear with me as technology isn't really my thing.....

but this week I have

4 x 800m intervals with 200mrecoveries

easy 6

2 mile tempo run

5 miles- and the plan says aim for sub 44
