I knew it wouldn't take you long to respond CD

It's uncanny how often you've posted just before I check in.  It's like we're related or something.

DD -  Congrats on the PB. It is getting cold here, enjoy the warmth.

Ant  - Might have to join you with a YKW before xmas, just worked out 16 week plan for VLM starts 30 Dec, have n't done a 5K race since Jul 2010. Nice consistent reps.

Chick -  Enjoy the party, mind that knee if you are partying hard.

Finally got to see Homeland, and it just gets better and better.

I am still lurgified and feeling fed up - started on 14th October and hasn't gone

Gets better for a while and then worse again - currently worse!!  Sneezing like that well-known dwarf, nose dripping like it needs a new washer and what Doctors tend to describe as a 'Productive' cough!!

Apart from all that I seem to be permanently knackered and it doesn't appear to make any difference whether I run or not - although I have decided not to try intervals for a while as the sound effects tend to scare the local children.

Ran for an hour today and was OK at a slow pace until we had to go slightly uphill. I am down to race in the Gwent League Cross Country tomorrow and due to marshal for about 5 hours in the freezing cold, so not too excited about the weekend.  Was supposed to be racing a 10k on Sunday but have binned that - sadly I don't think binning tomorrow will be as easy, our Ladies Captain is a bit of a slave driver [think Minni squared]

Brol, coordinating 3 or more teams.. messy. One was hard, two just about do-able with partners wanting to run, SS, mine and others after more laps? Places are going fast supposedly, last year still some in April, doubt it this. Mr Zuvai, team entry, not individual, will keep you in mind.

FRC- why would you want one person to coordinate 3 teams? Surely each team can take care of organising themselves. Would be great to get a few teams together and I'm sure there will be a place for everyone as long as we don't leave it too late.

Minni- tempting tempting...

Mr Zuvai- thanks

O4S-  sounds like a bit of a nightmare.  Hope you feel better soon.

I still haven't seen Homeland...Sounds like I need to get on with the programme.

30/11/2012 at 17:55

Brol's right, surely one person would organise one team. 

At least one of my running club will probably do the whole thing. 

O4S - take care.  Its so cold and if you're not feeling 100% then racing isn't going to make you feel any better.  Good decision to ditch.

Homeland - I've said this to my colleagues too:  Please can you all watch it on Sunday night at 9am then we can discuss!  Its no good when people are watching it at different times!!

What is going to happen next?  I still can't decide who is on what side, it twists and turns so much.

I have a sesh to do tonight.  I'm ok once I get out but just hate looking out to blackness.

Rugby update.  There are going to be three interviews while the boys are training, going out live, so between 7 - 9am.  The boys will be training in the background.

Zuvai - can you record then put it onto a disc?    I'm so not clued up!

Minni - is that due to be played on Skysports News? I've set the match to record, but can record sky sports news as well! I can make a plan to get a copy for you if needed but I can't be 100% sure of the quality

O4S - hope you feel better soon! I agree with Minni - if you dont feel 100% then don't race

Re thunder run - I wouldn't mind attempting a solo attempt at some point but deff not this year

Good luck to all racers and YKW'ers this weekend

I'm off to London for my sisters party! I foresee hangovers inthe short to medium future!

Ant - not sure what YKW you've got in mind, but I'd recommend hackney marshes for a pb attempt - completely flat, the only places where you potentially lost speed is halfway at the 180 dead turn and the first and last 50m which are on grass which can be soggy if its been wet. As its an out and back you get an exact half way split too. I say just go out at your target pace and see what happens.

Andy - welcome. Your times show the target is realistic, but its your long runs and endurance training that will get you the target - here's a good place to get motivated to do them!

Thunder run - yes I'm keen.

DD - a friend of mine did the wall run this year. Apparently its much more on road that it looks.
30/11/2012 at 19:21
MrZ- solo effort... Ugh. I like the idea of ultra running, but not necessarily the same 10k loop round and round for 24 hours...

Calf update - saw physio #2 for a decent length session on wednesday. What it comes down to, is that 5 months off after not having more than 2 weeks off training since the age of 7 has made my body wither and die. Even though I thought I was getting back into it gradually, I've been asking my body to do things that I think should be easy, and cardio fitness wise are, but that my muscles and joints are not yet ready for - like lunchtime runs every day, or long days out on the bike.

So, I'm getting reaquainted with core stability and stretching, which admittedly I've neglected for the last couple of years. Hoping to be back running soon, but looks like I'll need to take it easy, especially with building up the mileage again.

kfc - yeah i know hackney marshes - well flat, and sounds like a fab course My PB attempt is going to be in Oakhill park cos I'm a 'burban boy nowadays and I have also roped in loads of my club to come along. Hopefully there should be quite a few of us aiming for a similar time. If anyone else fancies it, it's the 15 December. Just before the eating and drinking gets really serious Take care of that calf

Re thunder run, my club have also put in a couple a teams in the mix in the past, not sure if there is a plan for this year.

30/11/2012 at 20:34
Minni, take Brol! That way the meteorite / rain / snowstorm & blistering hot sun will all be over your camp
Leave Mr Brol for BBQ duties though. He he. Mr Brol is very fast, does he do any other races Brol?

Brol, was more trying to accommodate 2 teams if OHs want to run, mr Brol & others more laps. Can't all fit in 1 team.

One of Knowsley guys came second last year, 18 laps of 10k. Scary. He has PF too.

O4S hope you feel better. Race & 5 hours marshalling doesn't ideal.

FRC- we dont have to stick to one team, we can always split if we go over 8. I think we should probably start the list and see who's seriously committed. Mr B hasn't been running much but knowing him he'll just show up and blast a 40m 10k with no training. Very annoying
30/11/2012 at 20:44
Should I change my forum name to Jinxed? Lol.
30/11/2012 at 20:57
Kfc - Glad the calf is ok, sounds like you just need to be patient with the mileage.

O4S - Sorry your lurgy is taking so long to go, and with your flood problem aswell. I know you've cut back to just racing one day this weekend, but have you ever thought of resting completely, as a solution.

Minni - Looking forward to seeing you running up and down the touchline behind the camera.
30/11/2012 at 21:43

Simon: No!!  Apart from anything else Mr O4S wouldn't be able to cope if I wasn't getting any exercise..................

KFC - good luck with being patient

Kiwi - how are things on your injury front?

30/11/2012 at 22:06
O4S - Funnily enough I thought you might say that lol. Seriously I hope it clears up soon.
30/11/2012 at 22:08

DD- Did I read your post correctly that it was raining in your race?? Great race in such appalling weather

Brolish- Can you put my name down for Thunder Run please. Lets hope the weather is nice to us again.

Ant- Go for the sub 20 park run, What is your pb at the moment for a 5k?

Freemers- go get that pb tomorrow.

04S- Good luck with the 5hrs marshaling, make sure you wrap up warm.

Mr Z- I think you can do the thunder run in pairs, FRC could join you???

KFC- I think most of us neglect our core so I will put that one on my list, again! Did they say when you could start running?

Minni- Will we see you on tv Saturday or Sunday???

I was ill most of last week which gave me loads of time to think. I have not been enjoying running since October after Chester marathon. So I have decided not to be coached anymore and to go back to my running club and join in with others,which I have missed over these last 12 months. I hope to be able to keep up my weekly mileage but just do some runs with others. I hope I haven't acted in haste!
