Sounds perfect. Are you a female Snoop Dog then? Send me an email so we can save addresses and get in touch closer to the time. And in the meantime I'd better get my butt outdoors and do some training! :-)

Hi Kym - no I'm a Snoop Dogg, not a Snoop Bitchh.

Your e-mail notification is disabled, so I can't send you an E - you can to me though and I'll reply.

Hello, been luring by pretending to be a female while I've been away have you Snoopy?

Hello again!
It doesn't seem 5 minutes since the last sub 4hour FLM hopefuls forum for 03. I'm up for it again in 04, application went straight in again.

Am hopeful of better things than last April's 4.20 but it was damned hot. Still had a fabulous day though. My only other marathon at FLM 02 gives me plenty of optimism that I can crack that 4 hour mark - came home in 4.03.

Currently in training for Dublin but holidays were always going to disrupt that, and thay have. Will run it but don't think I'll go for a time, I'll leave the glorious sub4 for FLM 04!

well now back from hols and the baguettes and rose are well and truly stuck to my ribs,have put on about half a stone-almost a stone since flm,and feeling under a bit of pressure for windsor....but i have managed a couple of outings and now getting back into the swing a bit more,10 on saturday,6 yesterday with a 5x800 in 4 min session in the middle.trying to follow the 1.45 rw programme but i think it may be beyond me at the moment,would be delighted with a pb of sub 1.57 as we stand......

Alex,

Is that the Yasso 800 technique your following?

Am off to do some myself now to see if it will be as guaranteed as they say once built up to 10 x 800m - tonight, Matthew, however it's an easy 1m run to track then 5 x 800m. 1m jog back.

Nottingham Half is my next race - hoping for a 1.45ish.

kg - Maybe see you in Dublin, although my training is sadly behind schedule - Spain was just a bit too hot over the past 10 days.

I hear some of you guys are running Nottigham 1/2m. I'm aiming around the 1.45 mark but will probably be a bit slower as I'm not at my fittest at present.

Re the Yasso's I tried them for last years FLM but seemed to fair better the previous year with shorter (and more painful!) speed sessions such as pyramids and 400m reps. Will try the same again for FLM. Am just out to enjoy Dublin rather than go for a time.

dr g i have done the yasso thing,though i haven't managed a full set of ten yet! and i think it works,but this was part of the sub 1.45 runners world half marathon schedule which i am keeping half an eye on ahead of windsor.am deeply embedded in noakes' lore of running at the moment and am getting terribly confused over different training methodologies....so after windsor i will probably go back to the 4 hr rw marathon schedules and see if it looks sensible...

i enjoy track sessions but its a bit of a fag getting to the nearest one at work-15 mins on the tube each way + changing time,so unless i can readily get a 2 hour lunch-in which case i'd rather do a 10 mile run-i don't tend to use it much any more.the other factor is that with a timex gps thingy,the whole world looks like a track(especially bits of docklands i can run to as a warm up)....you can set it to peep at whatever interval you like...and i'm also trying to get some value out of my gym membership at the moment,and when it was vvv hot,the air con was a joy,and getting the pacing spo6t on with a treadmill helps...now there's a bit of fresh air about i think its a shame not to take advantage of the great outdoors...

Alex - agree about the variety of different training options - bewildering! I'm going to get into regular speed/yassos, recovery, hill/fartlek, long run - 4 times a week schedule and base times/distance on RW 3.45-4.00 training. Anything more than 4 times a week and I start to ache.

Good luck to anyone running a half this weekend (I'm at a wedding so running is unlikely to feature), and may see some of you at Nottingham on 14th.
