The 7th SuperSix
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 .
Kelly - your pbs are very similar to mine:
5k - 21:0710k - 43:5010 mile - 1:14:04half - 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
5 Km - 21.53(5 Mile - Rubbish)10 Km - 45.1410 Mile - 1.13.56Half - 1.42.5620 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`.
This is a birrova sub thread from GNR innit?
My PBs are rubbisher than all yours so I'm not telling....
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
Oh go on then.....

I'm on your tail WTS! I want that sub 2 for the half now so bad it hurts......
Hang on - that's the stress fracture that hurts!
CC2 - you are SOOOOOO close to a sub 20 for 5K I can almost taste it!
Get some parkruns in!
and just to prove this isn't a thread solely for speedies, I'll chuck my PBs in the hat:
5k - 27:3110k - 56:1810m - 1:37:04HM - 2:06:0720m - 3:26:27Mara - 5:06:24

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.
