The 7th SuperSix
W.A.S.P are crinkly rockers now, their prime was in the 80s.
<< crinkly rockers ???? - mutter, mutter . . . . >> Is that like, the Rolling Stones then?

THAT wasp, they must be 100 each by now.
I must be one of the few that didnt really follow the super six thing (or have much interest in it tbh) but why do you have a beef with RW about it ?

now we know why the powers that be left us out....fish fingers and lager would be frowned upon
Indeed. Lager down downs are impossible to neck at any decent speed because of all the gas, it needs to be real ale
Shame that I was bothered to ask then !
It got done to death last week, there is no need to drag it out anymore. You have obviously seen something so it makes me wonder why you ask on here rather than just read through the thread
Mr K, i know you do a lot of races, probably more than me, do you pick out the more important ones and aim for them or try and treat them all the same?
When I started running I used to do all my running at local races, then after a while I ventured out by myself, and then finally joined a club. During that time I tried to run races at the same pace, like speed sessions, not thought, searching each time for that PB, regardless of what I ran the week before or what I had coming up.
I hope & seeing as I`ve increased my race distances I have changed in this approach. I do have a rough plans - the Midsummers Munro was with a hard month, easy month, hard month & then a easy month with testing events during the way. Planning for the Midnight 30 - I used a couple of races (30 Km & 20 miles) within my build up.
My training for the Doyen of Downs has included more LSR than races, with my 1st race of the month(ex parkruns) being today.
Next year I will look more closely at races I want to do well at and not always being the longer races and plan accordinly.
I guess I will always be a race fan.....so I`m enjoying planning around VFM but it will be, as pointed out only this week about prorities.
Did Clowne HM on Sunday, for those who don't know it is what is commonly referred to as "undulating", as you can see by the race splits

Anyway had a decent run, following last weeks marathon I sort of planned to take things fairly steady for first 8 miles and see how I felt. Didn't feel too bad at that point and began to push on a little, there was a group of 6 runners around 80 to 100 yds in front of me through the 9th uphill mile and focussed on keeping them in sight to drag me through. I noticed I had made some ground to the top of the hill and 2 in particular had fell away and were probably only 50 yds away, I caught these somewhere in the 10th mile, then went past 2 lads from Barrow at the 11 mile marker. The other 2 of the six were still 30-40 yds away, one of which was the lead lady who I spotted going past me around 3 or 4 miles, I gradually eroded the gap till I was on their shoulders, sat there for maybe 400yds then as the guy went past the lady I went past them both. I thought this would knock the confidence of both which it seemed to do as at the turn back to Clowne with less than a mile left I had a good 10 seconds over them and finished at least 20 seconds in front of them.14th place overall, 3rd over 40. Around 30 seconds faster than last year when the weather was a bit kinder, so pleased with that all told
Ah it was 2005 i did it, i remember the wait as the sun crept up
Did it in 2003 as well but don't remember any problems.
Blackpool marathon ran out of water for 15 miles in 2005.
And it wasn't pretty
