How exciting!  

So, very similar odds to the Target 26.2....

...unless you were in Paul and Sarah's group of course .

when and how are the results announced? At least the odds are better this time round!!

All I can stay is best of luck to the judges. I think the quality of the pitches are good so it will be a difficult decision.

Today has been a very long day at work and I am still nearly 2 hours from home. Need to catch up on some sleep when the trains comes so it is goodnight from me.

Agreed Carl.

Runningrachel - Christmas Eve is results day. Not sure how it's done. I would imagine it would be published here.

21 pitches and lots of great competition

Good luck everyone

Easy run cut a bit short today as desperate for loo. Weirdly when I passed the library at 6.30am there was someone there putting books on shelves and almost banged on door demanding to use their toilets. But opted instead to dash home early. Meant the last mile of my easy run became a tempo run

Very quiet on here today. Just getting ready to go out for a comfortable 5 miler in the rain !

19/12/2012 at 22:55
Haha bless you Malcs,x

I did some cross training today to rest my legs a bit after my speed training yesterday.....long run either tomorrow (depending on when I finish work) or fri morning.....can't think of a better way to spend my birthday!

Completed my 5 miles at 7:56 min/mile. It was tough when the wind and rain were come straight in.

Have been reading some of the other threads. Fascinating the stories of people on 40+ miles per week at the moment and I am doing about 20.

Is anyone wlse using MyAsics as a training plan. If I change it to reduce my marathon time in line with my current goal time due I loose the history ? If I do that is a flaw in the design is it not ?

What is the best sports watch out there. I use a Nike+ GPS watch but lately it has been giving me trouble like losing history and I am not convinced that it tracls actual pace well. Interested in thoughts.

Carl - get yourself a garmin. It'll soon become your best friend. Interesting you're using MyAsics training plan. What is your marathon goal time?

Sarah - you kept that birthday quiet!
20/12/2012 at 00:08

Minni - will defo check out the garmin as this is all that I hear about on these forums.

I was a bit sleepy when I set up the plan back in October as I entered all my previous PB's told it I wanted 3:56:00 and it set it at 4:06:00.

I really want 3:45:00 and do not think this is beyond me based on a solid pre-conditioning phase averaging about 20 miles per week. I have covered 151 miles in 25 runs, have a perfect rating for planned activity and distance and am at 83% of my planned pace average. This tells me that I either need to slow down or review my plan.

Carl garmins are fantastic, I feel naked with out mine, although I did loose my signal running through that tunnel at VLM this year!

Minni I turn 31 tomorrow.....I'm sat facing all my presents's killing me not to open them!
