FRC- hope your wife pb' d at the 10k today

 Bro- excellent LR- looks like your fatigue is in the past .

O4 S- you have to have finished by now or are you still eating cake? 

Minni- hope your LR went well . 're sub 40- I know it's only a few seconds but I'm like a child- I will stamp my  feet until I get it-- or maybe train specifically for it . 

The rugby is looking interesting!!

Fantastic AA, so pleased for you.  Don't you love it when those results seem to pop out of nowhere?

Great result from Barry too, but we expect you boys to beat us up until HM.

2Old, so close but well played, hope you're still pleased with that result.

Well done Bro and Oompa for getting out for the long runs. Just think how easy a nice spring marathon will feel in comparison.

Cross training today, with a mile on the tready to stop Minni setting the Jantastic dogs on me.

weeble- fighting talk- yes suppose I am pleased because a few seconds here or there don't make difference in the context of the bigger picture.  Nice cliche?

10/02/2013 at 16:47

Barry / 2old - fantastic well done

2 hours in the gym done. Time for a sleep I think!

10/02/2013 at 16:49
Spoons- thanks-you're getting value out of your membership !

2old - bloody great splits. Sounds like a good event. Was it congested?

Weeble - well done on hitting your febulous targets!!

Becs - 50 miles on the bike is good going.

Kiwi - good for you!

AA- there were lots there but I joined the group near the front and everything flowed smoothly away from the start, congestion free . I've seen how you dealt with it at your HM.

10/02/2013 at 17:24

Oh so good allround - great reports, great splits.  We've been going for over two years now and still we continue to improve.  I'm not kidding I think we'll have a team in Rio!

Well done Barry!

Just back from my 20.  The weather closed in at 12 miles and I got the extra layers on that were tied around my waist.  Legs are tired from yesterday.  Sort of spat the dummy at mile 16 - not that it made an difference because I had to get home.  Thankfully Guns and Roses came on the ipod and HTFU messages from Spoons and AA got me back on the road.  20m @ 8.29.

Minni- yes Rio is looking good . It's good to see everyone s hard work paying off. Talking of hardwork, that LR must have been tough even without yesterday's excellent race in your legs...well done. So one week ends and another starts tomorrow with nil logged- always look on the bright side eh?

Great HM's from AA and Barry, and some great Lsr's from the team.

Great to meet up with 2old and FRC and his OH. Great to put some faces to names. I would of loved to have raced today, as it's one of my local 10ks, and was for charity, but still injured.
Went to the gym afterwards, and another 5000m sess on the rower, and then watched the rugby on a bike

AA I'm over the moon for you.  Brilliant running, doing it for the girls, absolutely bloody marvellous

Smashed 1:30 Barry, cracking pace, sounds like you've had a good morning out

Spoons  - quality choice of listening for your turbo session

Oompa - great XC running, you make them sound fun! Spike hole sounds painful...

What are quad guards Minni? I was thinking of you out running this afternoon when the rain set in, I knew you'd be hardcore and just crack on with it

2old well done on the second fastest 10K, really good pacing throughout.

I did my planned 18M today.  PAIN FREE!!!  I honestly can't believe the difference since Thursday when I couldn't even walk down the stairs without it hurting, the physio session was money very well spent.  Ran easy, forced myself to slow down on the downhills, had a very enjoyable 18 miles @ 8:26.   Followed by more lunges and stretches!  Happy happy happy

SS - yes I quite enjoyed the parkrun but they have to be incorporated into something longer at the moment. Might try for a fast one in june time. Hope the lsr went well.

Weeble - hi

AA and barry - cracking times sub 3.15s for marathon maybe ?

2old - nice time good short speed to get you through the end of the marathon

Minni - nice 20.

Slow 16 mile run through hamsterley forest for me today. Picked a really hilly route felt good till 14 miles. Was raining for the last 6 miles. Had to dig in near the end. Going to tackle 20 next weekend.

My fingers were so cold on the bike this morning I had to keep flexing my hand to get blood to my fingers. I have now injured my hand WTF?!!

10/02/2013 at 19:34

WTF indeed Spoons! Random injuries are cruel.

Some tough running around Hamsterley Forest Shildon, is there any route around there that can't be described as really hilly?

10/02/2013 at 19:41

Oompa -  Not a PB for me but still very happy.  Well done on the 20 after yesterday's efforts.

AA -  Looking good for sub 1:30 at Reading are you pacing Brol or vica versa, very impressive WAVA for you from today. Just a couple of beers during the rugby, about to open the red.

Carrot -  Great news on the injury, must be a relief.

Shildon - sub 3:15's been my target for a while. Got very close, hopefully this time.

Minni -  Good long one from you, well done for pushing out the last few.

Brol -  Good long one in naff conditions.





10/02/2013 at 19:47

Carrot - like calf guards but ones designed for quads.  Great news from you today.

Master Minni about to tackle in the match today. 

Any other ladies feeling the pressure thanks to AA today...?   Looks like she'll be driving the sub 3:15 train in London.  

10/02/2013 at 20:15
Carrot - nice lsr sounds like your injury may be gone hopefully. Re hamsterley I love it up there because you benefit so much from the training when you get back on the flat. Youre right about the hills though lol. Don't like it much through summer as it gets muggy but come to think of it we don't do summers anymore.

Bb - it seems like a realistic goal. Good luck
10/02/2013 at 20:17
Becs - please enable your messages too. Ta.
10/02/2013 at 20:19

Minni I'm really looking forward to seeing how everyone is going to do in London, it's brilliant to see AA is now a strong candidate for that 3:15.  It's really inspiring to think of how much the women on here have improved so well over the years

10/02/2013 at 20:21
You mean compared to the men Carrot? lol

*only kidding guys!
