Wabo, once you get a little training in, half or a stone lighter for me is upto a minute a mile faster.. or at least feels easier to do. Enjoy yourself ! You will feel fabulous for Xmas too.
mcs, Moel Famau, North Wales, not far from Wrexham, we met up at Loggerheads, loads of runs & walks from there. Only about 40 minute drive for us, so very handy. Might go there over Xmas for a run/ walk.
(ha, Ikle may have TRS, but she has lost her TOTP power)
Ikle still in two minds about joining you for your 10k a week today ... How close does your drive take you to me?
In other news - to the thread if not Ikle - have now signed up for Bournemouth Bay Run - Half Marathon. So catching up with you guys in terms of distance. Sunday 7 April 2013. Nice course. https://www.bhf.org.uk/get-involved/events/runs-and-jogs/event-information/bournemouth-bay-run.aspx
Cicero I was actually going to suggest you do a half to bring your 10k time down towards sub 40.. get some more endurance in from 5k to 10k. Upping your weekend and mid week run will make a big difference.
Never raced a 5k or 10k any suggestions within spitting distance of Derbyshire........
claybury Wabo - the masters or some such nonsense of old people running... am signed up to do it - 6km - cross country - I have no spikes.. ooops.. am hoping it may snow and I dont have to do it - can do park run instead...
Did a great interval session this am which was good seeing as how I got to bed at midnight after a fantastic evening at Sheff City Hall warm up act was Nel Bryden, what a singer just her and a guitar, a 1946 Gibson and a voice to die for singing all her own songs. Then two and a half hours of Jools, Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall, Roland Gift of Five Young Cannibals fame, showing my age abit with him but a great voice. Boogied the whole night as did my 11 year old...........great night. Returning to more serious stuff.......a freezing morning.........9.13 warm up mile then 7.39-7.11-7.24 then cool down 8.03 and a half mile to finish and felt much easier this week than last weeks interval session. Frosty here but no snow yet, bad accident on the road to Sheff last night take care out there on the roads.
Sorry - have been slack havent I? Just lots on - but then we all do.
Welcome new peeps.
mcs - was listening to MT trying to work out which was you (guessing mcs are your initials) but then wondered if I was even listening to the right episode. Fun though.
frc - C plays the french horn.
Susan - sorry, have not been ignoring you and your Claybury questions. I have no idea what the course is like - Wabo? - so on the spikes thing - it may be fine, it may be a slippery nightmare. Hard to tell. But I don't have spikes cos my knees don't like them.
As for chatting on the way round - xc races arent really chattable I find. Maybe at the beginning but after that just trying to stay alive is more my priority because xc is so hard. But - before I put you off completely - it's hard for everyone and there's usually brilliant camaraderie. We're all suffering etc. And it IS only 6k...
We perhaps should aim to warm up together/jog round the course etc which will give us a great opportunity to chat. I'm looking forward to it - esp if it's cold and frosty like today.
Will sign up for Jantastic now that I'm a runner again
markstreet running with daughter on a bike.....on rate your run......
Oh I did Claybury last week. Vets it was. Well Its a nice course, I like it. I did 3 laps and the toughest part is a bit where you go uphill through the woods and then down a sharp hill and if the weather stays at it is I shouldnt think spikes. The ground was hard last weekend and I wore off road shoes.
I must go look see what this race is about, I am not aware of it
Ah, mcs, yes, I remember that. She dropped the water bottle?
Wabo - oh I thought you were racing with us on SAturday? Southern Counties Vets League/Champs or something. Don't really now TBH! Course sounds fab. I like laps. The one we did last week was two laps but round an enormous field where you could pretty much see how far you had to go the whole time (and therefore how far ahead everyone else was...)
HERE IS YOUR CHANCE !!!!Have you been shunned by Asics?Stuck in a training rut?Got a marathon place and can only run round the block??Busy busy busy and no time to train??I have six lovely mentors all lined up and chomping at their Mizunos to get involvedAll you have to do is to tell us why you should be given the prize of the milleniumYOUR PITCH
Should not threaten to harm small animalsShould not send people to sleep or need a screen breakIt will contain your hopes for a marathon timeIt will contain your marathon entry confirmedIt will contain a brief running history of recent times and pb'sWe would love to hear all about YOU, strengths, weaknesses and limitations---------------------------------------This thread will close on Monday 17th December and then Kittenkat and her esteemed Adjudicator(s) will cogitate the pitches and we will then announce the LUCKY SIX on Christmas Eve Asics 6?? As they said on Channel 4 ... thanks for the warm up
Click on the link below to be taken to the pitching page.....
mcs you in the asics thing? could be something for you..
Or someone else here - Ikle? Get that sub 4?
Important point, if memory serves, you score higher if you have pictures of cute dogs, cats or children. So get some pictures ready.
its not the Asics thing FRC! That's the point of it!
I think its too late now frc, I think we are at the voting stage its that right minni?
I know its not the Asics thing !
Thought mcs might've been in the asics thing already, so not interested in the Forum 6. But if he isn't, then a good candidate.
Wabo - yes too late for the Asics but the forum 6 is much better anyway. You're almost guaranteed a pb!
Forum 6 yes interested need a sub four next year.........only problem is I need a marathon, only got a 21 miler booked in March and the Coniston 14 so need to find a flat marathon.....Milton Keynes might be one. White Peak one is a possibility though I think its rather hilly......off to research.......need a kicking,training,cajoling, nerdling, beating, pacing down to that sub four hour mark. Went out and did four easy at lunch all under 8mmiling so getting quicker with three weeks of training under the belt already. Long run Sunday 14 miler planned......
