6 month plan is now training for 10k - anyone got any good training plans?

Runner's World have good ones. You can customise.

FRC -  yours and Mark's human shield skills were invaluable - not to mention helping hand to jump over certain muddy bits - being a short arse I cant jump as far as you guys! I've never come across any cows on that route before - I think the evil farmers put them in especially to annoy the runners! I must admit I;m not an animal lover.  My worst holiday nightmare would be a safari holiday!

Jovi this youtube clip is for you then. I'm sure you wont be doing either activity, (play right to the end).

Cycled into work this morning lovely sunny day again here in Bakewell. Just been out and done a 10K in 46.45 avoiding dogs and walkers up the Monsal Trail. Time for lunch. Nice clips!!

hi frc, my legs are feeing a bit better, still cant stop eating though....

09/10/2012 at 16:04

mcs that's a nice time. I want to do a sub 24 5K... a week on Saturday. That's the plan. But it's a bit hilly...

09/10/2012 at 16:26

MCS, I was in bakewell yesterday!, took the scenic route home from chester on the way back to lincs!

we pop up to derbyshire 4 or 5 times a year for a holiday, next time I am up your way, if you fancy a bit of company on a run I will come with you! last time we stayed in castleton I ran up mam tor, via hollins cross, thought my lungs were going to explode, noiw thats a hill!!!!

09/10/2012 at 16:28

DTF, how do you know what position you were in at half way point?? 

09/10/2012 at 16:45
FRC - legs fine, tired (but as usual, 2 full on days of work!) - hungry...
Scott - I went to the results link from Power of 10 site, lots of useful stats!!
09/10/2012 at 16:51

is "stage position" where I was at half way point?

09/10/2012 at 16:56

MCS i'm not far away from you. I live in chesterfield but looking at your times think you might be a bit quick for me at moment. 

09/10/2012 at 19:24
Iron blade, I will let you know when I am up that way, we can go for a plod in the peaks......
09/10/2012 at 22:20

Well done....., errr....., virtually everyone! Maras, Ultras, Halfs, and PBs all over the place!

Distinctly feeling too that I am no longer fit to be part of this thread. Don't post regularly, definitely never running another Mara, and have only run 3 times in 3 and half weeks since GNR, including tonight when I managed to clip a kerb in the dark and rain, nearly fell over head first and managed to tweak right hamstring! Might take up knitting instead like Wabo 

No races booked and work and home commitments seem to be conspiring against me to get one in the diary, and I don't tend to run as regularly without a race to aim for.

He ho. Keep on running all, in my place!

Any plans for a pre-Xmas meet-up?

09/10/2012 at 22:43

Well done Dave and everybody else....sorry I am not even fit enough to write much else on here as fingers feeling tired!!

09/10/2012 at 22:50
Pre x mas meet? Sounds like fun....
10/10/2012 at 07:09
Yes pre Christmas would be lovely... Dates that suit the northern contingent ? And AH ? You alright ? You never told us what was wrong?

No time to run last night clearing up after film crew for hours , cross training.

Hey Didds, sure you will do something. Just need mojo back.

Wnder how the Marathon boys legs are feeling. My legs felt pretty good last night considering they'd run 35 miles 3 days before. so I did the club speed session 10 hills (of Hell !) last night, not flat out but 90-95%, but still fast enough to be at front of our merry middle group. 2 pals who looked after me when starting reckon I need to move up to the fast boys group. Eeek.

Susan, Jovi mentioned a date I think when she was in London or nearby. Wed 12th December I think?

10/10/2012 at 12:31
Legs completely normal again...hoorah! Very pleased about that.

Thanks for the Peak Performance link FRC - very useful

The only date in can do for a Xmas meet up is Wednesday 5th Dec - any good for anyone?
10/10/2012 at 16:56

I cant do Wednesdays as I work so dont think I;d be able to get there in time.  Might be able to finish a little earlier.  The only Weds I could potentially do is following week as outside chance I might be doing Enigma marathon in Milton Keynes on 12 Dec.

If 5th works for others will see if I can finish early that day.
