Introducing the fourth member of our Lucozade Sport Super Six… Vicky (aka Hashette).

Memories of being picked last for school sports teams and a dreaded bleep test would be enough to put most people off running, but thankfully not Vicky. She confesses she’s finally found a sport she loves and now wants to shave nine minutes off her marathon PB to go sub-4:30.

Vicky will be using our sub-4:30 Garmin-ready schedule (devised by former London Marathon winner Mike Gratton) as a basis for her training and will be mentored by Liz Yelling directly on this thread (starting January 4).

She’ll be posting his 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 Vicky’s running background and goals by clicking on the article link at the top of the thread.

Good luck Vicky!

We all had a ball in 2009, you will do great!

Watch out for that Liz Yelling, she can be scary stuff you know!

See you at Watford?

Wahoo, the threads are up!

Thanks a million for all the good wishes and yep FF, definitely see you at Watford.

Sod's law or what?  We've got no electricity at home, the power went off at midnight last night and there's no sign of it coming back on any time soon, according to a doom-laden message on EDF's website.   I can lurk around here for an hour at lunchtime, but that's my lot or I get fired.

Mind you, I can do a lot of damage in that time

Good luck Hash, just watched the meet and greet video.  Some interesting high knee work .

Not running VLM .  But shall be using the scatter gun postings approach following you all.

Again, best of luck and hope you achieve all your goals and help drag that Rio lass around .

Thanks Windy.  I've seen it but not heard it as we haven't got sound cards at work, so for all I know I sound like Linda Snell as well as looking like Corporal Jones not quite getting it right.

I'm looking forward to running over that finish line with Rio, I couldn't believe it when I saw that we were both in the same category on the shortlist

Fantastic idea, yes please.

They've just announced that they're closing the office and we can all go home.  Normally I'd be sprinting out the door at a speed to give Matchstick Man a run for his money, but the urge to go and freeze my bits off isn't strong for some reason.  I've just phoned the pub, and they've got no power either.  Still, as the landlady said, they've got an open fire, candles and beer, so what more do we need? 

Food?  Cheese and onion or ready salted?

EP I was thinking the same thing except with no hot water to wash in after it might be a bit sweaty!!

Ready salted for me Hash please

That sounds lovel Hashette- wish I could leave work when it snows but I just get shouted at- because I can control the weather don't you know!!!  Have a nice mulled wine a a beer for me!!!

Looking forward to following your training as I'm hoping for 4.30 or thereabouts too!!!
