Minni v Dubai Dave
Oompa - that's not a slow 10k at all! Definitely concentrate on getting ready for marathon training now.
Chick - forget the time - you are a WINNER!
Ant - come on and put us out our misery.
Decorating done, roast dinner almost ready then I'm going to flop.
OMG - if these are all slow 10k times [please tell me that it wasn't really a 6 minute PW Chick] I think I will stick to ultras. Were you all just born fast??
Congrats to Barry and The Cookster - great runs.
Chick - that may be shit for you but I'm with Becs on this one. Well done on getting round and hopefully banishing the cold.
Spent today organising and washing up after a neighbour's 90th birthday 'do' at lunchtime so no running, just a brisk walk for an hour to shake out the cobwebs.
Cooks - great pb, looking forward to hearing more
Barry - great pb, so close... Whens the next 10k for you?
Chick - roll on the next races in the series - I'm sure you'll have a pb and will love 10k's by the end of the series! (and probably a clutch of bling too)
Oompa - eek, hows the calf feeling now?
AA - just in scotland until xmas. Its all a bit complicated right now, I'm split between Scotland, London, and the South Downs, and likely to be doing short bits of work all over for the next year. My retirement is turning out to be rather difficult to organise!
2old - my local ones in London are Hackney marshes (same as Kev - if you are still about Kev hello!) and Mile end. Theres 37 of them all around town though so plenty to choose from.
Taking precautions for the calf so no running today, but found a gem of a mtb trail centre just 20mins away. Fast flowing jumpy pumpy stuff, whippetted round the 10k loop twice with a big smile on my face. Gonna take some of my old school mates there over xmas and convert them to biking
Haven't heard a peek from the calf today so looking good for a lunchtime run tomorrow
Aw bugger. Just entered Edinburgh marathon...
Minni - thats going to be at London hopefully - I dont think 2 'A' marathons within 5 weeks is realistic for me - you'll know best on that one after last year! I guess its a back up, although my thinking right now is to jog it with a friend (her pb is 4:45). I'll see what happens come spring, and when I've got a better idea of what my plans for the next few months look like. Its fun entering races though...
Barry/ Cooks: Sweet!
Chick: Next time but if you were 1st in in your AG what the hell are you complaining about?
Minni: Hope that you recover soon, as a recovering Man flu victim I can understand how sick you must be
Oompa: heres hoping there is no reaction, as a fellow calf injury prone runner I found that no running for 6 weeks (I cycled and swam) was needed to get over the problem, plus I always wear compression guards for speed work, races and long runs. So far so good.
Was out pre dawn on the bike and yes my legs are still tired, arse is still sore! But 28 miles done at 20MPH so not too bad. Will run club run tonight but probably not as quickly as usual.
Cooks - Congrats on the PB, especially in tough conditions.
Chick - Unlucky with the race. But well done on the win, prizes?
2old - Good news you are back running. I would love to get close to your mara time but don't think it's going to happen.
Kfc - Not a PB but quickest 10K for a couple of years.
Good morning everyone
Minni- considering that I am planning to do VLM it might be wise to book another marathon as a back up. With my track record you never know what might happen. Hope you feel better soon.
5m easy done this morning.
Have been peeking in now and again but have very limited internet access at present.
However, it's Norwich HM this weekend and I wondered who would be running? I should be there and will be supporting somewhere.
I won't be running Norwich as I ran Luton Marathon yesterday as a bit of marathon practice. Thought I could do ok although I haven't been training for one specifically. Three laps, very similar to Newcastle in lots of respects, few challenging hills, a bit off road. Perfect conditions though and I ended up running 3.14.57!!
chickadee I was well chuffed to see your sub 3.30.So pleased you got that one in the bag. By the way I have entered your favourite half marathon again for next year
Fab results at Newcastle too in not such fab conditions. Well done all.
