W.A.S.P are crinkly rockers now, their prime was in the 80s.

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 ?

Andy - What is your next race and how will you prepared?
28/11/2009 at 21:31
Doing Clowne half marathon tomorrow mate, and edwinstowe 10km next week, but not really racing them that hard.
Next race to prepare and train for will be Brass Monkey 24th Jan.
Will probably go for a couple of mile heavy weeks to start the year and ease off for the week of the race. Each of the heavy weeks will have at least one 10+ mile runs, a 6-7 mile quick pace run and a fast interval session, along with a couple of steady or easy runs.

Really can't be bothered to go through it again to be honest, I made some points which RW have failed to address or reply to.

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?

now we know why the powers that be left us 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 !

29/11/2009 at 10:00
...dont bother now though, cos I really wont bother to read it

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

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 I`m enjoying planning around VFM but it will be, as pointed out only this week about prorities.

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

Here's a question from way back on the thread - I saw a few people referring to "surviving" Blackpool in '06 when they ran out of water. I seem to recall doing Blackpool in 2005 (which was the year they kept us on the start line for about 40minutes in the sun) when they apparently also ran out of water for the people further back because a load got nicked by oiks.

Is this a regular thing at Blackpool? Slightly concerned as I'm doing it again this April!
06/12/2009 at 22:59

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.

I have decided to train towards the Brass Monkey in 5 weeks time then do the London work from that point. To this end have completed 75 minutes of hill work on the treadmill, racking up 10.71 miles.

How's that nutrition plan coming along Andy?

Blackpool marathon ran out of water for 15 miles in 2005.

And it wasn't pretty
