What were you going to edit your name to?  Sleigh Rider?  Nice session tonight!

Did you hear the one about the dyslexic devil worshipper?  He sold his soul to Santa.

Nice to see a regular on the list, voted,good luck.

OK, your category is the only one I haven't voted for yet.  I hear that you are a regular but I don't think I have spoken to you much, so tell me more. *gets comfy on sofa with a pot of tea, and listens attentively*

I did Knight Rider

Wardi, Saint Michael Knight Rider was one idea, Silent Knight Rider another, but do like the Sleigh Rider!

Hi SuperCaz, I'm normally found on the sub 3.15, Brighton & Chester marathon threads and tend to drop into interesting New discussion threads when I can think of something funny to say or even give advice where I can. I was on the Mundane thread for a while but it was too interesting!

A few random facts about myself:
Despite my height I used to be a county champion at Long Jump
I was born in Belfast, but don't have an Irish accent, although when I sneeze it has an Irish ting to it!
I mostly drink green tea & Jasime at work,
The great marmite debate - don't touch the stuff
I like fig rolls & ginger nuts and when I feel posh have the ones with chocolate on (ginger nuts not fig rolls).
Although I do like dogs, I won't be posting any pictures of them

A bit quiet on here. Thanks to all those that have voted for me so far.

If you are still undecided, you can ask me pretty much anything.

Watched last Friday's episode of The Walking Dead (FX) last night, absolutely brilliant. Can't believe there is going to be a 6 week gap till the next set of the series?

As a Mundanie, not sure that I'd agree with your assessment of our thread.

Still, as the others, you get my vote because you've been around the block a bit on here and given before you've taken (assuming you'd win your category). 

I know it's not supposed to be house rules, but still. . .

Kr - as mentioned on sub 3.15 thread you have another one "backing your arse" - as long as we get inside info and all the dirt on the inner workings of RW

Thanks Fraser, I'll do my best to report most things, although not sure about any dirt being uncovered from RW!

Jeepers, will have to check back in the mundane thread to see what's going on.

Ten miles planned for Thursday night a new route for a change thanks to mapmyrun. I think once in a while it's good to try out new routes and discover parts of the city you live in that yo've never been through.

Day 3 of the voting process and I started off the day with the plank to start building my core work. Managed to hold it for count to 100 and will build up to a couple of sets. Interesting talk from Sarah at the Bootcamp day last week in Birmingham about the importance of core work and how it can help your running posture and thus enhance your running. I did use the plank in my last campagian but want to add in some more exercises to compliment the plank and further build up strength.

If you are still undecided about who to vote for in the PB hunting section, please feel free to post any questions.


Please vote for Knight Rider - PB Hunter

What exercises are you thinking of adding?  I currently do the plank (can hold for 60 seconds) and other Pilates exercises for flexibility / mobility / strength.  I used to do sit ups and crunches, but wasn't sure that they were doing much to help (and I got bored with them).

08/12/2011 at 12:19
Squats & lunge and a pelvis floor exercise.
Lying on your back with you knees bent and arms crossed over your chest, then lower the back down, clench the glutes and raise the stomach up. The idea being that the glutes are doing the work and not the hamstrings to hold in this pose. Ultimately, once I've mastered this the idea is to lift one leg up , hold for 10 seconds, then lift the other leg and so on and building up into sets. I think that although sit ups are good, gettting a six pack is not what it's all about.

I voted for you. good luck

Cheers Rich T 1973, I like the way your forum name rhymes!

10 miles in the bag tonight at an av. pace of 7.57. It felt good to be doing it in a more relaxed state. As mentioend I plotted a new route with mapmyrun to make it a bit more interesting. Went through the Park they use for the Parkruns here and I can tell you it's a different place in the dark. Not many about but the ones that are there are on the dodgy side. First encounter was a bloke & his Pitbull (which was off the lead) Not wanting to startle owner and dog I made the obilgitory coughing before approaching them - went okay. Next lot were a bunch of hoodies who quite frankly couldn't hold back and had to shout out obscenities - shame on you for living up to pre-concieved stereotypes! These sort of things aren't flagged up on mapmyrun, maybe someone could design a hoodie icon to go on parks like this?

So it was back home unscathed , then the plank for a count to 100, shower and baked potatoes & baked beans!

09/12/2011 at 10:53
Aha, thanks for that - have given it a go and realised how difficult it is to get the glutes to engage.
09/12/2011 at 11:45

I like the idea of a hoodie icon. A dogging icon would be useful too (I don't like to intrupt them), but I'm slighty disturbed what the icon would look like

Cheers, I should probably try out those glutes exercises too, arse

09/12/2011 at 13:32

Maybe some kind of rocking car with a red triangle round it?

Doesn't look like I'll be doing any running tonight, got a few sociable pints to drink down the pub!

09/12/2011 at 17:40
Looks like the boys night out has been called off to unforseen circumstances - that's life!
So it's a night in chilling with my wife and maybe planning a new LSR route for Sunday. Going to go rural and make the most of the daylight. That's the trouble with this time of year as I tend to do most of my running at night.

Getting a PB in the marathon has been my goal for the last 2 years ever since I crossed the line at the VLM, even then I knew I had more in me to get a better time. Having followed various schedules I think plan B is needed!
So here it is, with the help of your votes and essentially the support and valued expertise of the coaches & Asics team involved, I hope to put my all into giving it my best shot.

PLAN B -  please vote for Knight Rider in the PB hunting section. Thank you.
