Please vote for me (knight rider) in the PB category of the Asics Target 26.2 competition.

I have been a Club athlete for 8 years and have been lucky to steadily progress in the shorter races up to Half marathons. Two years go I took the plunge and stepped up to the marthon distance and managed 3.22.10 at the Virgin London Marathon in 2010. Since then I have been trying to get that elusive sub 3.15 time, but unfortunately with no luck. My PB's at shorter distance certainly suggest a better marathon time and I am hoping with the guidance of Steve, Sam, Sarah and the Asics & RW team I can achive my goal.

PB's this year as follows:

5k: 18.38
10k: 38.38
6 miles: 37.35
7 miles: 45.19
(I also ran a 1.25.50 half marathon in the run up to the Brighton marathon this year)

Any questions, please feel free to post them on here and I'll try and answer them.

Good luck mate, and as you are a regular contributor to the 3h15 thread over the past couple of years I do hope you get picked. I'd love to see you go crashing through that 3-15 barrier in style and what better way to do it than in Paris as part of this Asics 26.2 competition.

Thanks for the votes peeps. If I 'm lucky to get picked I've got some ideas for the thread & Twitter to balance up the training with a bit of humour etc, but obvioulsy not to distract from the essence of this competition which is to achieve my (sub 3.15) goal.

Thanks for the votes guys, really appreciated.

I was going to change my name to a more seasonal one but thought it might confuse things a bit - maybe next week.

Just back from the running Club, a bit thin on numbers tonight due to the races at the weekend , vut hopefully mnaged to drum up a bit more support. Steady 7 miles tonight at 7.24 pace, with a mixture of 8.xx to start with building up to some 6.3x min miles in the middle. To be honest there a few guys doing a half this Sunday so they were holding back a bit.

14 miles for the week so far and hoping to get up to mid - lates 30 by the end of the week.

Thanks for having your beer goggles on Tommy and voting for me.
I'd like to balme my bad spelling on predictive text, but that would be well,  predictable.
