Minni v Dubai Dave
old4speed - Congrats at entering our local HM. I usually help at one of the water stations but this year I'm planning to run the 5 miler - not with Barry as i'm sure he will be ahead of me!
Free - Congratulations & enjoy your anniversary
AA - I'm not surprised your knackered after all that! Plenty of rest for you. As for Barry he's being sensible thank god with Berlin so close. YKW will be a deterrent for him not to run tomorrow as we are taking the dog!
Minni - good luck with GNR - hope your calf is a little better
Quick run for me this morning - i'm guessing 3 miles as my Garmin wouldn't set the location so ran without it! Swimming training for me this evening.
Good luck to anyone else running this weekend!
Pinklady: I have done Swindon for the last few years, tough course but very well organised. The hills suit me and I managed some bling (Swindon blue glass?) the last 2 years. Nearer the time I'll get your numbers and keep an eye out - although I managed to miss Barry and the dog at the one mile point last year
Scuba - nice one Talk about a return to fitness....
Good luck for Tuesday Simon, at least they can get you in quickly. And you'll be all recovered in time for the dark nights Make it up to your OH when you're recovered, take her out then. Nothing like extended birthday celebrations!
Sounds like the start is a bit more organised Barry. I'm guessing you'll do 3:09 You don't need another long run, it's too close. Get that calf recovered.
kfc - wow, speedy mile! Was that on the track? Sounds painful.
You make Grizzly sound like fun O4S! Hope you feel better by Sunday. You've got plenty planned anyway if you decide to not race.
Knackered, shit, dizzy and headache AA but no mention of the PF.... how is it?
Hope you're on the wine now Free, congratulations on the anniversary!
Enjoy parkrun tomorrow Pinklady. Nice to run without the garmin sometimes
I have loads of volunteers for my parkrun tomorrow (funnily enough, being GNR on Sunday) so I'm going to have my first official run around the course. Like Ant and 2old have seen, the weather looks atrocious for Sunday - wet and windy - so it's pointless saving my legs.
Sorry, sorry, sorry. Had a very busy week and not much time to catch up.
Good news is I've tested the calf tonight and all is well so look forward to lining up with Carrot (well not quite because she's down in cattle class and I'm up front with Mo)* on Sunday.
Barry - How's the niggle?
AA - a virus or do you think down to the HIM? How's the foot?
O4S - glad to have you back!
Freemers - happy anniversary. Looking forward to seeing you next weekend.
* I think I can say this because I have a feeling she'll be finishing before me on Sunday.
just a quick check in to say good luck to this weekend's racers! hoping to watch the gnr on tv, go smash those pbs!!
Old4speed - My daughter's school usually run the water station nr Bradbury & that is where I have been for the past couple of years! Hat's off to you as I'm not as brave as you to tackle the HM as don't feel ready yet so the 5 miler will do me fine. Will look for a nice flat HM to run in the new year as I will be more than ready by then!
Yes will pass on our numbers to you beforehand & try to arrange a meet up before the start.
Good news Minni on your Calf & all the best to you & Carrot for Sunday - will look out for you on the TV!
Best of luck tomorrow at GNR!
Me - I'll be running a 10.7 mile leg of the Round Norfolk Relay at 5am.
best of luck for Sunday minni and carrot
AA: Rest up, you deserve a break
Not feeling great so day off.
Go Carrot & Minni.
Just checking in after YKW. Pleased to report I achieved a PB & a respectable Garmin time of 28.42 - ran my first 8mm! Really happy with that! Barry supported with the dog.
Achilles !!!! Rest for me too
Best of luck for tomorrow Minni and Carrot. Sounds like it's going to be a lovely day for it!
Enjoy the early start and the relay Spoons!
Just catching up... congratulations AA - you did it and an awesome effort, especially given the injury problems. Great stuff DD too as ever and Scuba, wow, what a comeback so soon after your stroke and a very speedy marathon to finish with.
Simon, that is rubbish news about the shoulder
Well done on the Parkrun PB Pinklady
YKW for me too this morning. There's a few within a half-hour from me now, so plumped for Ilford. It obviously doesn't attract the same calibre of runner as the Norwich one as I finished 5th - Garmin time was 19:30 which was ok, although hoped to be a bit quicker and would like to be low-19s by the time my 10k comes around, so going to try to squeeze in a couple more YKWs before then to sharpen up.
Still haven't moved house yet btw. Hoping something might happen next week, but I'm so fed up with hopes being raised and then being let down that I can't be bothered to think about it any more!
busy week so have not had time to read back will do tomorrow. Just to wish good luck to all racers tomorrow and great north runners. Hopefully the predicted wind will be at your backs for some fast times.
Minni and Carrot- don't be shit! Will look out for you on the telly.
Quick check in to wish all racers and GNR'ers good luck for tomorrow. Look forward to watching it on t'box... Don't be shit!
Knee however is still shit so don't want to talk about it!
Go Team Minni
Am I correct in thinking there are 5 class runners in the GNR tomorrow ? Mo,Haile, Bekele, Minni and Carrot? have a great one !!!
Ant - do you all swim separately, then the same with the bike and run? I've done one like that before and its a great race format - you can really hammer each leg cos you get loads of rest in between. Nice to race in a team too.
Good to see your mojo back DD
AA - no wonder - you've a lot to recover from!
Freemers - yeah you could, its amazing how much faster you can push compared to a 1600 rep.
Carrot - its a measured flat loop in the park - easier to manage with 70 racers than on a track I guess. Hurt like my old sport rowing used to, tasting blood by the end. Its so long since I've raced that intensity - I've forgotten how much i enjoy it
Great improvement pink lady!
Still not bad Daren, getting back in the YKW habit should find you a few more seconds.
Easy 6 planned for later, and a hilly trail half race for me on the south downs tomorrow, so Carrot and Minni will have to make sure they make it into the GNR highlights show. Spoons - enjoy the early start!
good luck to minni and carrot. The plaits v the ponytail?! Will be watching on telly.
Pink and Daren well done in the ykws!
DD, 2old - another day if rest for me too.
Still got headache and dizzy. PF isn't good but I'm resting it now for a good few weeks.
great ykw pinklady and daren
good luck tomorrow kfc.
carrot and Minni - enjoy running with the slebs
Oh dear oomps
Tried a 3 mile trot today to see how I felt Not ready to do a HM tomorrow that's for sure, but reckon it is worth plodding round in about 2 hours to collect the rather nice technical shirt.........
Decided not only to bin the garmin but also my watch and just get round, trying to beat the rain.........
Good luck everyone else! Bear in mind I plan on being shit on behalf of the whole forum so no need for anyone else to do the same.
