Introducing First Timer Craig (aka BoDuke)
Ten - thanks for a great report and a fantastic run in atrocious conditions - great time considering - in future years folk will talk about the flooded MK race and you'll be able to say "i did that one!" with some pride - enjoy your recovery and again, well done
p.s. i do mine this sunday and will post report on the new thread probably on Monday night when i get back home
LOL - Ditto to all the above Ten - I kept looking out of the window and thinking of you all - I'm not sure I would have even made the start line in that weather - you ran a brilliant race - and I think you've realised yourself that you're in PB shape if you can run that time on the most horrendous day of the year!
3 whoops for Ten - whoop whoop...
Ten - and the importance of family:
I met my wife on a trip to Australia and i said "what the hell are you doing here??"
Oh well I guess the cat is out of the bag!! LOL
"Just" the England team Ten - not the GB one! His debut is this weekend in Denmark - a half marathon with an unpronounceable name!
Keep your fingers and toes and everything else crossed he has a good run! And then recross everything on Sunday for oscarr!
ps Boys - you could go to comedy jail on the strength of those ...
LOL - don't worry - I just didn't want to 'brag' or jinx him but I am very, very, very proud as you can imagine. He totally deserves it and I know he'll do his very best
We are all proud of him so please pass on our best wishes for the weekend - an England vest eh....wow that sounds good !!
(why not race report on the new thread after (or before if you wish) the weekend so more people find out??)
I'll pop something on the new thread afterwards - don't want to add any pressure on him just now. But thank you for your best wishes - he'll really appreciate it - he always asks what you're all up to - I have to give him a daily update when he gets home
Ten - yep, nearly there - just about to go out for a leg stretcher (8x200s) as my first run this week, 4 mile MP run tomorrow then 2 miles on Friday - already got the carb loading cupboard filled - watching the weather forecasts each day now and long range looks OK
bummer about the +250m on your race which would add well over a minute to the time - are they adjusting official times or just stating the increased distance?
Ten - in summary then you had a race which has given you a great load of confidence going into the next campaign which has got to be a great outcome, well done.
I heard about Stratford cancelling the full but what happened at Manchester? (For those interested Simon Pryde did it in 3:23)
