For anyone who doesn't fit anywhere else
Morning Outsiders, hope you all had a great Christmas
Welcome aboard Fairy Elephant - love the avatar
Christmas plods went well. Ran 5 miles on Christmas Eve in 54.34 which I think is a PB for that distance. Yesterday I ran 10 in 1.55. 17 so I can still afford to slow down a little bit (believe it or not) and still get round faster than last time
I am done in today though - my legs feel as if they belong to someone else
your legs are probably mine screamy
I am in and proud that I don't fit in some threads also
Lost 2 1/2 stone this year and trained up to 20 miles in October. It is Run/Walk (have COPD) 1 in walk for every 5 run on average and looking at 4 1/2 hours for VLM in April. Went back a few weeks on schedulew as a rest and trying to peak at the right time. Got 14 miler Sunday.
I see some great efforts here over Christmas period -well done. I did a 6 miler on the day and a couple of 4 and 5 mile since.
Hi Stu, welcome aboard
Well done on the weight loss - if I could shift that extra stone I'm sure I would turn into a whippet
I do run/walk on my long slow runs - 1 minute in 12. It helps my mind as well as my legs (it allows me to concentrate only on the mile I'm running at the time) and it also stops me choking on my jelly babies which is a bonus
Hi screamy and thanks . I am certain that extra stone will drop off no probs Funny enough I use my walks for Jelly Babies too although have to take care when using a sports drink with 'em (seem like I could float then-lol)
Would love to reach 1 in 12 walking and will aim for that. I do not think a wee walk does any harm tbh.On a good day I could do 12/1 in time. My sub 8 minuting has gone though, I feel .
Ha Ha, goodness I can only dream of 8mm
If I could do 10 minute miles for a 10k I would be happy - we'll see what happens at the BUPA 10,000 in May
I'm in the odd position of being a faster runner than the last time I did a marathon but a slightly slower one than the last time I did a half so I know better than to be surprised by any of my times - slower or faster.
I'm experimenting with jelly beans next time out
sub 8 was a long time and a million fags ago -lol
10 min mile or a bit under appears to be me now. Good luck on BUPA 10k - I am sure it is doable. Just see where your feet take you.
Yes - I read that Jelly Beans are actually better when mixed with sports drinks than Jelly Babies.

Belated merry christmas everyone and here's to an excellent 2012 with fab running from everyone *fingers x'd*
Owwwww - my quads!
you too minardi Sup with your quads screamy?
Back again, work and family took my life this month. My only solace was my running, though not much of that in evidence in places!
Nothing on Xmas day, 80 minutes of vets rugby on Boxing day. Well, it was supposed to be vets but t'other side could only get a vets pack together, the backs were the kids from the 1st's. As I'm one of the faster vets I was on the wing rather than were I usually play in the pack which meant I spent 80 minutes sprinting back to make tackles. I was knackered, would prefer to run the Picnic backwards.....
8m at 07:50 pace yesterday, 11.5m at 08:30 pace today. 112m this month at an overall average of 08:33 pace. Distances for runs are 4m to 22m. Been wearing a HRM all month, average HR is 140bpm, average max is 167. The week I was felling a tad flu'y shows with max HR's of 190, 214, 187 & 184. Was a bit scared when I saw 214!
Hi folks. Mind if I join you? Long time since I posted on RW site.
I'm a lucky(!) one who got a ballot place by "donating" their entrance fee.
Hoping to get round in less than 5hrs 30 so I ain't quick. Got my pre-xmas long run up to 16 miles in 3 hours but just starting back on the training plan post-mince pies & Quality Street.
Got a 5 miler and 6 mile Fartlek of sorts in so far this week. Staring 12 mile LSR in the face tomorrow!
Happy New Year all
