Minni v Dubai Dave
Alright all. Been down the pub after my intervals for some team minni stylee recovery. Pretty pleased with the outcome of the session. 5 x 1000m with 2min intervals: 3:51, 3:52, 3:53, 3:54, 3:53. Surely sub 20 is on for Saturday week. Bring it on.
Happy birthday O4S, hi Sarah.
Over & out
04S - happy belated birthday. Maybe you swallowed the diamond by mistake.
Sarah - as others have said - 3:30 sounds do-able. Best road marathon is probably Abingdon or maybe New Forest but probably Abingdon. Most of my marathons are off road. Favourite is probably Belvoir Challenge or maybe Poppyline Marathon to support my local one. I've got Brighton and Wales Trail Marathons coming up next.
Welcome to Sarah, yes a 3-30 is very doable for you, copy whatever Minni does and you will be fine! Anything is possible with hard work.
2Old: Yep I'm in a bit of a dilemma as to what my MP actually is at the moment cos it keeps getting quicker, after years of being in roughly the same pace band I seem to have suddenly found a extra gear which wasn't there before. Will keep racing and see what the results tell me.
Off for a 2K splash in a minute and then 90 mins on the bike tonight. I'm with Freemers way too early for xmas names.
I won't be joining Team Minni in Jantastic this year as with a marathon on the 25th Jan and then the training required for JOGLE I can't see me spending too much time running February onwards.
Spoons: This was a present from BA, no diamond hidden, digested or otherwise
Freemers: normally I would agree with you about Christmas Forum names, but I am already in full Scrooge mode as cards start to arrive, Christmas parties happen [without me] etc. I think it is probably that the University term ends mid December so Christmas gets pushed earlier than elsewhere.
Have just remembered we are entered in a half marathon this Sunday - what was I thinking?????
Still cold cycling in to work but OK for running after the first mile or so - sleet forecast for here
Ant - Nice quick repeats, sub 20 wil be yours.
Target logged for Jantastic and I have appeared on Team Minni.
6 miles early this morning, daughter early morning swimming and she thinks I'm mad, and very cold, bit of rain but no snow. Felt OK came out at 7:45 avg.
Happy Birthday, O4S. Oooh, I hate that "my kid is sick leave" thing too . Luckily, the 2 girls I work with don't have kids either, so we are fine. Yeah, I'm a mean child hater Sarah: those times are fantastic. You will smash 3:30. I did and my times over the shorter distances are way slower than yours . Once your forum page is up and running, please post a link on here. Right, will go and sign up for Jantastic now. It has just started to snow here . This morning it was minus 3 and all the rain from last night had frozen over. I still managed a 90 minute run. Deliberately ran naked as I had to pay massive attention to those black ice patches.
Sarah - I've never thought about doing two marathons so close together. A fair number on here have done them a month or so apart, and I'm not sure it's really been that successful - so if you do it then the charity way might be the best option. Also, on the assumption you get your GFA time in Paris you won't need to defer your VLM place anyway as you can use the GFA for 2014....actually thinking about it, if you got your GFA in VLM this year, then that will also qualify for 2014 as they last for two years. So either way you are sorted.
Sarah- like the others said- your pbs look good for a crack at 3.30. Very nice 5k time! Don't worry about getting everyone confused, it took me a while to get my head around who's who. I look forward to reading your 150 words.
Ant- nice speedy intervals there!
Minni- what's the reason behind your doubles? Is it purely to up the mileage or something else?
Free- hope the leak is fixed and you can get your run in today.
Barry- nice 6 miler, glad to see you're slowing down
Old4S- which half mara are you doing?
2cm of snow this morning (all gone by now) which obviously resulted in total meyhem on the trains. Being from Poland I find this very difficult to comprehend. 6m planned for tonight.
Minni - are you getting an internal server error when you try and change your forum name? I'm getting one - in fact I wanted to update some of my other details and get the error every time. I've posted a thread on the website bugs section...
Freemers/Minni - Santa will only let you change your names if you've been good this year. have you?
Yeah I've uploaded the runs for Team Minni - I'm a much more reserved 5 runs. Minni - 7 runs! That must include doubles I presume?
Brolish - I grew up in Luxembourg and was also staggered by the UK's inability to deal with snow - but then I found out that they get the wrong type of snow here
2Old - take care of that calf! Doesn't look like you took too much rest.
Sarah - GFA for over 40s men is 3:15 - it maybe be more challenging that you ladies have, but it is definitely a motivation to do better

I was told it was rather muddy and tough last year!
Last year was the least muddy year it's been in ages!

Yep - just go for your run at 4am every morning!!!
