For anyone trying to crack the 3h15 barrier anywhere in the world
My Pb is better than his too and I am thinking the same B&B.
I smell a conspiracy to influence our voting in favour of the other 2 candidates.
Lets be positive and vote for the slow guy!
Just cos you've run a 3:09:xx it doesn't mean people in the 3:20's are slow. Elitist!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that one of the sub 3s is going from a 3.27 mara!You have to assume he can run 1.15ish for a half.....

I must be a sadist..... I voted for him...
thanks for the welcome folks.
Jesus....got to keep up on this thread, lot to catch up on..
12m on the snow and road yesterday, 6-7 tonight with the club tonight.
am also following P & D with a few tweaks,it helped me last year in the Anglesey mara, got me a GFA place for London.
KR.... just added my vote, good luck.
Thank you MsE. You and me both for the slow starts, good job we prefer distance races!!
You need to send some an anger management fairy over too.... I have got quite cross over on that SSX thread (the one that's not broken!)
For me, that is!!
Will read back now.....
Sounds like an interesting day Knight Rider, who was then responsible for coming up with the shortlist?
I would interpret 'general aerobic' as 'easy paced' running.
Welcome, new people
Keir, My time was 3.10.31 chip time. in Sept 2009. Too late to enter for this years,so its for London 2011.
the only tweaks i do to the P&D is that i sometimes alter the days depending on family and work commitments.
I do up the pace the last 5-6 miles on the long runs, but as stated many times its time on the feet that's most important.
Will have to go and read the SSX thread - not usually SueC who gets hot under the collar! Hope the back improves soon, btw.
Lovely 10M for me in the sunshine. Ground still pretty solid but a lot of the frost is going and I suspect the ice on the harbour will be gone by tomorrow afternoon. Treated myself to a run in my lightweights (Adizero Tempos - they have sparkly laces, too!) and averaged 7.11m/m, with the penultimate 2.5M @ 6.45s. One step further along the road back to marathon-fit.
Been watching with interest over the last few days deciding whether to follow the jump from the old sub 3.15 thread or become a lurker in view of not having marathon planned until 2012.
Either way I wanted to pop in to say congrats KR, you have my vote - sounds like a great bootcamp session.
I will also be voting for the 3.27 guy out of interest to see how he gets on - should be interesting.
P+D MP running - seemed there was enough for me and I agree, much easier when done as part of a race.

Just for you TR: the conversation was originally about RW choosing mostly people that hadn't posted on the forums previously. I said that most would have a shock when they realised how much time and effort would be required to not only meet the running requirements but also the time to put into the thread, a la MM. Someone said that, up to now, they hadn't the time because they had a job and kids. I pointed out that many of the regular posters on some threads (ie this one) had kids but managed to find the time to train and provide assistance and support to other forumites and not only when a lovely freebie was up for grabs. Then Sue came in and ripped them to shreds
Having joined the RW forum this year I only got to read the latter stages of MM's Super 6 thread so don't really know about what happened on the others. Is JBFAR still around or did it put her off the forum entirely?
