What award dos have you been to Susan?

Wabo - I'm xcing tomorrow, too.  Not as far as you - we're doing about 6 or 7k.  First running race for AGEs.

Then back in the sea on Sunday. Actually looking forward to it. No doubt I'll get the dreads again tomorrow night.

What's everyone else doing?

Mcs, that was 50 pound x 6 lesson!
AT did cure some twitches and back problems, but not much else. Shout if anyone wants the pdf about semi supine, it's about 20 pages. Good for breathing & relaxation, mindfulness. Rest of ATech, is a bit preachy, you must stand/ sit this way. SS good though.

DtF, good to have a partner or two. Reaping the benefits of post marathon boost.

Race Sunday for me, it might be 10k, though someone says is 5.5 miles. I don't mind but why not add the extra distance? It's on one of the best 5k road routes locally so seems a waste. Little fitness test tomorrow to see how I feel.

Good luck to Jovi & Martin, marathons, Wabo & AH with XC. Looking forward to AH swimming blog week 2 also. Susan, Rest for you!
Good weekend all.

Great to see Martin this morning. We ran the first couple of miles together but we both had different goals for today so then parted. In ecstatic to report. I got a new PB am so happy 3:26:10 only 21 seconds but not run close to that since 2010 & third 26.2 in 6 weeks. Today was one of those days when it all seemed to go well. Plan was to target 2:40 for 20 miles & then hang on which is pretty much what I did. Ideal weather for running cool but very still. Feeling more hopeful again of sub 3:30 in the spring when I can do a proper taper. Enroute to London now for night at theatre & after show drinks not sure the heels were such a good choice !

Bloody hell Wendy you are AMAZING

Hope you had a good run too Martin

Just been doing my thank you e mail about the sponsorship I got for the marathon, and Ickle I don't have your email, plus the couple of anonymous donations that may have been some of you lovely lot I raised over ?? 500 which considering the number of times I have asked is brilliant and thank you very much ! Big hugs ((()))

Evening all, As Wendy said different plans today I wanted to finish feeling strong (ish) so forced myself to have my first little walk after 5 miles took lots of 30 second to 1min ones from then on. Very much a Comrades training run. As a result very happy with 3.55.16 It was good to just jog across the line knowing I could have gone further, in fact kept thinking maybe I should have done the 40 that was also on!

Very aware fot those who have not got a sub 4 that may sound bad but all I would say is the more you do the easier it gets honest. Thats my 8th marathon or above of the year and convinced if you stay healthy it makes a huge difference

awesome Martin, I walked a bit last week and was 5 hours 8 or more ha ha ... Can't believe how many marathons you and Wendy clocking up
10/11/2012 at 20:48

Martin & Wendy - excellent!! 


11/11/2012 at 00:26

Well done Wendy and Martin. Amazing! People with amazing times ie sub 3 hours have used the walk/run to great effect!

11/11/2012 at 07:53
Morning all

lkle the secret of run/walk is to start from the begining NOT when you have to. I now know a sub 4 can be done but you have to change your pace targets. First 5 miles were between 8.23 and 8.45. If I ever get a chance to pace someone to sub 4 would be what I would want them to do

Feeling fine apart from a toe nail so off for 9 holes of golf

Yes I know lots about walk run I think it's Soopah! I tried it for a bit as a way of coping with my sore knee. Run a mile, walk a minute, etc.

Get yourself down to Brighton Martin, you can pace AH,Ickle and me
11/11/2012 at 09:55
Oops just spotted a typo in my las post I did PB but it was 3:36 not 3:26 unfortunately legs feel fine today ankles oddly achey & think I'm about to lose a toenail but apart from that OK the alcohol last night seems to have had a healing benefit! Great night seeing rock of ages & celebrating my friend who was over from Oz for holiday to celebrate her birthday

Martin - you may remember you paced both me and Tutu to sub 4 in VLM 2010... as steady as a rock. Guess you won't charge much for your service at Brighton 

Easy 7.5m this morning in the forest as part of our Club Children in Need effort. 3 (and a bit) laps of the Wilverley enclosure circuit (2.25m). The record is 21 apparently

Darn it, I doubt that pacing would help me n my dodgy knee!
