Sorry for the cut n paste from last years thread but .... get pitching !!
Is that your pitch Minni ??
She's got my vote. Short and sweet.
Get spreading the word guys n gals .... no harm in a bit of spamming in this case
I'll get it on twitter and facebook.
Err umm, errr maybe! squeezing a couple of marathons in between a couple of ultras. Not sure if that means my training will be a bit screwed up and i'm a bit slowwwwww. Not exactly the pitch of the century.... Oh and i'm injured and out of running for a couple of weeks.
right here I go.......
was lucky enough to be picked for the forum 6, 3 years ago...with the help of my brilliant mentor I managed to smash by PB by 28 mins.( it had taken me 4 years to take 8 mins off )......and the icing on the cherry was I went sub 4
2 days later I broke my big toe and my running stopped and never got going again properly as I was focused on the bike and going longer and longer....
so fast forward to now and I started concentrating on running after IMW and am starting to get some good improvements....
I am thinking of getting back to sub 4 standard and even go for GFA 4:50.......looking at the rock and roll marathon
ran a 24:43 5k in training this morning.seasons best
Good to get the ball rolling Seren, thank you
Oh and I forgot to put any times.......
i think I have failed at the first hurdle.
current marathon time 4:36:59 want around 4:20 signed up to Milyon Keynes 5th May and LochNess 28th Sept.
have 3 ultras between them booked. That's it for my 2014.
i'll get writing and be back. . .
Its all about the pitches guys ... sell yourselves
Just tell it as it is MM
Seren Nos - please could you describe what type of poster you are and what we can expect if you have your own training thread.
I vote for all of the above. Does the final selection partly depend on what mentors there happen to be and what their experience is?
What the hell, might as well ...
I started running 5 years ago, but have never been a racer as I'm not competitive and just run for my own enjoyment and health. Have only ever done a local 10 k a few times, PB for that 55:46, but never had any desire to run a marathon. I think I've always felt it was beyond me. This year, however, I made it round the Outlaw. The 'run' took me 6½ hours but it planted a seed, and made me think that I actually could do 26.2, and put in a decent effort.Had a massive falling-out-of-love with running after Outlaw, scaled things right back and have started to build up gradually again. I was convinced that I'm a 10min/miler, but the big surprise has been that, having started to use Chrissie W's interval sessions, I've taken 45sec off that pace.I think my biggest limiter is psychological.
I've entered the Loch Ness Marathon (September 28th)
Stubborn old mare seeks mentor to get her round her first (stand-alone) marathon in 4:15/4:30
Lol Max ... ..... Literatin, the usual format is the same as the Asics times, the sub 3 down to the Just Finish, thats not to say that we would rigidly stick to those times, its a rough outlineThe final selection is down to selling yourself, showing that you are motivated and committed
