Forgot to add - be real nice to the Finishing Area peeps (including the chip collectors....otherwise they tend to cut your laces  )

Vicki - it's called school. Ben will be starting school next year too . Ok, that means I probably should be thinking about a job, but...well, we'll see .

Andy - yep, 3.45 is what I need. I really think I'd have gotten closer if it hadn't been for the heat this year in Edinburgh, so I'm hoping I can give it another shot. I managed 3.50.30odd this year, not bad for my first attempt. I should be racking up my 1500th mile in the next couple of weeks, would have made it ages ago if it hadn't been for the ITB problems, but never mind.


5k - 21.25

10k - 45.34

Half - 1.43.15

So, going by the predictors I should be faster for my longer races, but not sure how I can improve my endurance. My marathon plans have included Top 5 LSR's to total over 100 miles.  

I'll work out later, based on plans I've followed previously, what I would intend to train like and maybe you could have a look and see if you have any suggestions/alternatives. 

Mr K - you had pretty good odds there though of how many you didnt cut .

16/11/2009 at 15:20

Kelly - your pbs are very similar to mine:

5k - 21:07
10k - 43:50
10 mile - 1:14:04
half - 1:42:06

from my 5, 10 and 10 mile pb's I should be a fair bit quicker over half marathon distance.

I'm quite a bit down on last years mileage, but I can pin this down to my ankle injury in January & February, and Flu in August/September, and more recentl;y a chest infection.

Hoping I can have an injury free 2010

16/11/2009 at 15:41

Mine are;

5 Km - 21.53
(5 Mile - Rubbish)
10 Km - 45.14
10 Mile - 1.13.56
Half - 1.42.56
20 Mile - 3.10.35

Averaging out at 115 miles per month. Normally I run 4 times a week.

kaysdee - In my defence on my ramp I wasn`t the one called `Razors`.

mine we're much worse to be fair, just taken a lot of hard work to get quicker

Rio - isn't a speedy peeps thread, just happens to be a couple in here, and Andy is mega fast

Liverbird, my PB's are only a little better than yours...

10k - 52:18
10 miles - 01:28:46
Half - 1:59:04

 I've improved them all this year. Fingers crossed we all manage to improve our PB's in the coming months

16/11/2009 at 17:48

When is Andy going to list his PBs? (So we can all keel over in awe!)

Mine are:
5k - 20.13
10k - 42.15
HM - 1.33.05
Mara - 3.28.38

CC2 - you are SOOOOOO close to a sub 20 for 5K I can almost taste it!

Get some parkruns in!

16/11/2009 at 21:22

and just to prove this isn't a thread solely for speedies, I'll chuck my PBs in the hat:

5k - 27:31
10k - 56:18
10m - 1:37:04
HM - 2:06:07
20m - 3:26:27
Mara - 5:06:24

All were this year except the 10 mile (Oct 08)

Desperately want sub-2 Half and sub-5 mara in 2010.

I have never raced a 5km so used the split, and I'm pretty sure I beat both my 5 mile and 10 mile times during this years GNR.
16/11/2009 at 21:48

Tonights club run was just an ordinary run with there only being 3 turn up. I did just over 6 with them then turned for home near the end of the run to finish on 7.8 miles at around 8:10 average. Since then just a cheeky couple of Becks to wash my tea down, not pie but chicken enchillados..nice.

16/11/2009 at 21:58
Part of the reason I mentioned Becky's improvement is that I thought she was around the same time zone as a few of you guys. Vicki and Kelly are very similar, CC2 is a bit quicker and holds the form better over the longer distances. Easy response to Vicki & Kelly is to do more longer runs, and gradually build up speed over those runs, though there may be other reasons behind your drop off from 10km/10 mile to the HM.
