Follow the progress of The Evil Pixie live in the forums as she prepares to run a sub-5:00 marathon under the guidance of mentor Steve Smythe
Introducing the fifth member of our Lucozade Sport Super Six… Kim (aka The Evil Pixie).
Kim was only ever going to run 5K but with two London Marathons already under her belt, she’s now set her sights on running better and stronger than ever to achieve sub-5:00.
Kim will be using our sub-5:00 Garmin-ready schedule (devised by former London Marathon winner Mike Gratton) as a basis for her training and will be mentored by Steve Smythe directly on this thread (starting January 4).
She’ll be posting her training progress and be receiving fuel and hydration advice directly from the Lucozade Sport sports scientists live on this thread so make sure you check back regularly to find out how she gets on. You can read more about Kim's running background and goals by clicking on the article link at the top of the thread.
Good luck Kim!
< gets all star-struck >
*worries about getting fit enough to start on 4th Jan*
*leaves autograph book*
Hi honey, your own thread eh? there's posh
****peers in from next door****
Good luck Pix, see you on the start line - and more to the point at Chandos to celebrate afterwards
Autographs available on request!!tee hee
Just been out for a cold and slippy easy 2m although I suspect I may be suffering from the same infliction as Fat Face as gone too fast for an easy one! Poor Steve!
Going too fast on 2 mile runs in December isn't going to do much damage - it's the too fast 22 mile ones in March that cause the problems!
Hi everyone. Good luck in the coming months
oh oh oh wibble the coach is here!!*waves*

Just trying out your thread for size.
Seems nice - I'll be back!!
That is all.
Hash don't do that it scares me!
Spinks you are more than welcome!
Especially as we are following the same basic schedule except for the pace!
I'm not sure I like being a wibble - is it a cross between a nibble and a wobble?
Ok Hashette agreed running downhill on icy roads could potentially do damage whether its 400 metres, 2 miles or 22 miles.
tee hee norty little leppie
Rest day tomorrow and hopefully, weather permitting, 7-8m on Sunday! Next week will be a little err light as I'm off doing the dutiful daughter thing!!
You blXXdy nutter. I may be a wuss (your words!) but you wouldn't catch me out in the snow and ice. Take it easy, I don't want you looking like Hash's picture now do we!
Anyway that said, great to meet you the other day and best of british with this thang. Me, I'm going for a run tommy morning but given its going to be minus 3 tonight (at least) I can't see the ice thawing. Tedious treadmilling down my local gym me thinks!.
