Minni v Dubai Dave
Speedy Sarah! As per other comments, you'll be even quicker on a decent day.
Minni - blame the spinning session yesterday. Still a decent 5K training run @ HMP? I find with YKWs sometimes I can really run well and sometime I really can't. I've done them where I've flogged it all the way round to come out with around 21:55, or relaxed, took it easy and done about 21:20. Mine is fairly local so I just go along for the banter and a bacon sandwich, the run is just a bonus.
How did your parkrun go today Spoons?
O4S hope you're battening down the hatches, you've had some horrendous weather lately. A 10K on New Years Day?! There's one in Newcastle on that blasted Town Moor on NYD, I thought about it but we're at a party all night so it would probably end in tears (or being sick in a bush)
Good luck in your final races of 2012 AA and Gazelle.
Good result at the Madejski Stadium today hey AA? Not so much for us
I was going to parkrun but decided against it, my legs were still tired from the vertical climbs and descents yesterday. My schedule did say 5 miles easy, not 5K flat out, so who was I to change it?

Was lovely to meet Minni today and learn more about the history of this thread and the people in it, it has reinforced what I had all ready thought of you all....that you all sound like lovely, friendly and supportive people.
You obviously weren't listening properly....
Carrot - that 10k is run on the grass rather than the paths so not very inviting. I'm planning to do a fell race on NYD - 3 miles uphill (almost 2000 ft I think).
So the plan tonight was to drink water and have an early night however Mr Minni suggested an Indian. Yum. Only had one glass of wine but made sure it was the biggest I could get.
Tomorrow is another run/race - the social Coastal. A rerun of the summer Coastal but not a race as such. approx 14 miles and will make it up to 18, hopefully.
Oh and whereas parkrun lost Sarah a second they kindly gave it to me!
A run on the grass is not inviting but 2000ft of ascent over 3 miles is? :O Enjoy the coastal, another tough one by the sounds of it. Ditch the garmin for the 14 miles?
Good luck tomorrow AA
Speedy Sarah indeed
DD - go for 3:15
Carrot - my YKW was only a jog as the GF was running. I have a 10km on Monday so was under strict instructions not to go quicker than 8 min miling.
Morning from a cool / chilly Dubai, twas 11C when I jumped in the car, considering I don't have a coat or jumper which I can easily get my hands on that was Jurrasic.

DD - I missed you super long run earlier - fantastic.
Which confirms what I have always thought, you don't take any notice of what I write Enjoy you none race, race today.
AA/ Gazelle: race well.
O4S: sound like I need to grow fins
Sarah: Nice 5K, thats pretty close to my 5K PB, Mind you I never race them as there aren't any here AND far too short and fast.
ST: The taper will be total as from the 12th Jan - 21 Jan(Dubai Marathon is the 25th) as I will be in Val d'Isere on the Piste in true Minni style. Might actually do me the world of good to taper properly for once. The best about yesterdays run is that If I had carried on for another 4K I would have had a marathon PB and this on mostly sand and gravel tracks.
Will swim today, don't want to but need to get past 300K of swimming for the year
Sarah - Impressive 5K.
AA, Gazelle, Minni - Good luck racing today
Currently listening to the rain and wind while having breaky - I must be mad. Mr AA has balied out with Manflu so its just me and Master AA tackling it. He's only 17 and is training for his first Reading Half so this is his first ever 10 miler. And it will be one of his hardest ever!
Gazelle and Minni - all the best for yours.
Carrot - 3 points. Still in shock! Hard lines for you yesterday.
What this? Can't remember what we were doing
Hope Minni, Gazelle and AA had good races.Great pic DD! Mrs. DD is a stunner! Love her dress . 3:15 or quicker it is. You've turned a corner with your running, I'm sure you'll have a stormin' one. Does it start early to escape the worst of the heat?Just back from a curry and a few beers after an epic battle over 17.5 miles against wind & rain earlier today. Felt truly heroic out there . Would have expected my pace to drop dramatically against the wind but very surprised that my Garmin data showed pretty even splits. I must be getting fitter . Average was 8:37mm, av. HR 72% of max. Happy . My longest run since the marathon - roll on Jantastic
Mega mileage Bro
Sounds fun AA
