Looking strong at the finish Tek

OH: not quite as calm and collected as the 10k photo...LoL

Nice One Kaz. I have just completed my registration for Berlin too..... Happy Days

Nice Photo Teknik. I agree with OH....looking strong at the finish !!  I can imagine it was nice overtaking lots of people in the last 10K as you stayed strong and they were fading...

Trek- nice photo!
Pouring when I left the house, dry by the time I parked up Just over 6m of acive recovery Legs feeling better every day

Well done on getting a place.


Great photo.

Great photo Tek! Is the finish indoors?

Just back from 10.1 miles fairly relaxed running, 2 degrees out there so it is cold kaz. Great news on getting the Berlin places kaz and AGF. Forgot it is Halloween - far too busy out there!

AGF well done on the Berlin place....and yes, it was a real boost when for the first time I wasn't one of the faders...

Jason well done on the recovery

HM hope you're ok

Fiona yes, the course winds it way inside race HQ, on to a red carpet finish complete with flashing lights, tinsel showers, pom-pom girls and the greatest hits of the Hoff blasting out...actually it was awesome


Going to the club now to try out my knee...

Nice running guys

Tek - Nice pic, finish sounds awesome!

Kaz - Hope you're better soon


7.35 miles this morning for me. Lower HR than the same run last Thursday morning, and 3 minutes faster. Excellent

As for next year, Alloa HM as a pacer for my mate and Grangemouth 10k in March. Marathon in April, either Lochaber or Manchester. Then Loch Ness in September. I want to fit another HM in there somewhere, possibly Dundee, but depends when I'm on holiday. Loads of parkruns too...

Nice running Stuart - great improvement in a week!


5.7m in the mud and hills, HR all over the shop, but knee was "ok".

01/11/2012 at 12:40
Stuart- well done
Tek- glad the knee holding up...

A bit windy and chilly out, but lovely sunshine here. Decided to leave the mud andthe hills for a while longer and stick to the flattish road today. 10m nice and easy in 1.18.46 (7.52 av). Legs getting there Off for sports massage later on for a battering

Nice running folks.

Jason-I did 10 too... But my easy pace is more than a minute/mile slower....
01/11/2012 at 20:13
AGF- well done
Went for sports massage and got the all clear, although legs are still retaining a bit of fluid from Saturday's mauling!

Good running guys
just 5.8 tonight after a busy day.

02/11/2012 at 11:13

Hi Peeps long time no see, work and stuff getting in the way again......

Great running TEKNIK likes the race report and photo, great even splits for the whole 26.2 miles

Jason nice running so close to you A race well done mate it shows your fitness level.

Fiona missed the heart thing hope everything is ok (((((Fiona)))))

AGF and Kaz well done in getting into Berlin looks like everyone is now looking at next year.

I had a very enjoyable run with Kelly in Dublin, it was her first marathon and I got her round in 3:47:15 which got her a GFA time for London 2014 I had a trip/fall in mile 16 and ended up in A&E in Dublin that night as what I thought was a sprain turned out to be a broken radius. The break is quite clean but halfway through the joint I have to wait till the 10/11/12 when I go back to the fracture clinic to see if it will need to be pinned....So six weeks on the sick, so plenty of planning time now......

02/11/2012 at 11:47
NP- ouch! Can you still run? Well done to Kelly
Fiona- I missed that too. Hope everything's ok....
OH- well done

Jason nice 10m hope the massage helped

AGF well done on the easy 10

OH well done for getting the run in after a busy day

F I missed that too - take care

NP thanks and well done on getting Kelly round in a GFA. Running with a broken forearm - you keep upping the bar for "hard as nails" !! Hope that fixes itself quickly...


massage and yoga here - the latter was torture as every muscle in my legs hurt...


02/11/2012 at 13:53

Well Done NP. However Sorry to hear about the fall. I hope you recovery quickly and it does not impact your VLM preps.

Tek, Sub 4 is forever - aches are temporary

An Easy 6 early today....

02/11/2012 at 16:52

Tek- the massage certainly helped- though not at the time!

6.37m recovery today. Starting to get bored with recovery and low mileage and getting twitchy again

02/11/2012 at 18:34

Why didn't my post from yesterday?  Oh well nevermind.

Well done on everyone's training.



Hope the arm heals quickly.


I'm fine.  I've found out that a work colleague's OH was a personal trainer so I may use that instead of Insanity.


02/11/2012 at 19:03

NP - Hope you're ok

Tek/AGF/OH/Jason - Nice runs


Eventful day for me. Smashed a spanner off my hand at work, then cycled into a fence I'm a bit of a danger to myself at times... Other than that, gym (upper body push) this morning, and I'm just in from a gentle 6.4 mile run.
