Oh, I can't wait to see that! I'll be at Fetchpoint at mile 22 - I'm sure I won't miss you Poacher!

SBD - Most people at my place had colds before I got mine.  I even stayed clear of them!!

Poacher - Very impressed at the Spice Girl idea. Ginger Spice in a Union Flag dress?  Where did that come from?

Congratulations FINgers.  Keeping busy during the taper!!

Cracking new PB Badbark.  Massive confidence booster for you at this stage.

Still full of cold here but as it is still only in my head I ran an easy 5 miler.  Harder work than usual but felt good to do something.  Still dosed up on numerous drugs though (hope the testers don't pay me a visit)

I'm on the Red start, 32179; painted purple in a skirt with wings. Quite inconspicuous.

Spot on Martin, someone donated the union jack dress and frankly it feels so sexy, in a slappery kind of way, that I can't not do it. Not as conspicuous as you though. Nor as fast

Minni are you sure you want to be seen with a slapper?

Still laughing at the thought of Poacher Spice!!!

My adventure with my Newton trainers has officially ended - went out for 1 mile after a bike ride and the top of my foot is hurting again - sending the sodding things back!

I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want, I wanna decent pair of trainers that don't feck my feet up.

Nice one Martin too for purpling it up again.

FINgers - many congrats to you and Mrs F. Look forward to seeing you on the 3:10 train.

Poacher Spice - can't wait to see you!

Martin - is another purple fairy record in the offing?

Can you all please put together a list of your expected finish times and what you'll be wearing so I can look out for you all? Preferably in time order. Ta muchly. 

09/04/2013 at 22:27
There's the start of the list on the bottom of p1299 - I can't seem to cut and paste on a iPad though.

7 miles tonight including the club GP. Couldn't be arsed really and  plodded round at the back  in 6:30 pace over 5 miles.

Yes we need a list. Put me down for 3:05- I'm a realist.

I'll be at the drinks station mile 23

OO50 - 6:30mm is plodding pace for you? And you're only targetting 3:05??

10/04/2013 at 06:14
No fairy world record this year. Finish time depends on when my cold goes. A target is sub 2.55, B target is keeping GFA.

Didn't there used to be an excel spreadsheet list that someone put together last year?

Why do things try to format so weirdly on here - is it something in the website or is it due to using Mac?

10/04/2013 at 06:55

Lorenzo - Hull? Just run fast.
FINgers - congratulations. That's great news. Good luck with sorting out everything for VLM weekend!
DS2 - hope the massage has worked.
RFJ - nice tempo run.
SD - ditto for your massage.
Minni - Henry VIII and Margaret Thatcher? Doesn't bear thinking about!
Poacher - Ginger Spice! Should be interesting.
Martin - hope the drugs are working.
SJ - have you tried barefoot running?
OO - wish I could 'plod' 5 miles @ 6:30 m/m!
4 mile recovery run d&d.

10/04/2013 at 07:35

I actually started at 6 min miles then dropperd to 6:45 mid race then recovered to 6:20 for the last mile. Made the mistake of eating before the run and leaving too late- actually missed my start time by a minute and ran most of the way on my own with a sore belly.

The the event was followed by a curry and several beers so not all bad.

Just a question about post race. I'm in London with my family but would love to pop in and see you all. Can you remind directions of where you meet?

Poacher and Martin H - My girls have already asked if the fast purple man in a frock and the man with fruit on his head in a frock will be running again. I take it you are going to be wearing a ginger wig to complete the ensemble again Poacher?

10/04/2013 at 09:06
OO- can't do a proper link from my phone, so I nicked these which Mennania posted on PD thread.

It would be nice to see you there, that's if I make it as my glute, hip is tighter than a camels arse in a sand storm.
No running for me today but may have a ride on my bike just to get the heart rate up a bit.

So there's three in fancy dress now! (That includes Badbarks white head band)
10/04/2013 at 11:06

LOL moof – I wore a blue charity headband last year and my family thought it was great because they could spot me easily. So I’m destined to wear a headband every VLM now!
