Fiona - having done Amsterdam before I'm doing Frankfurt in 2013. Apparently faster than Berlin and a lot more interesting than Amsterdam's industrial estate and suburbs!

Emmy- Who's going to be a busy girl then?

Just missed the rain for another 5m recovery run! Which brings 2012 to a close for me! So thought I should have a look back at the year- My best so far

My Running Year 2012:

3318.83 m in 434:38:35 (7.53 av)

PBs at 5k, 10k, 10m, HM and mara.

Ran my first ultra in January- won the second one in March and ranked 17th for 50k on Power of 10

Here's to 2013!!!! Happy New Year Everyone!! XXX

NP- nice mileage. Hope you stay injury free in 2013! Good luck tomorrow!
Tek- you have created a monster! Lol!

Well done NP and good luck for tomorrow!

Johnas thanks for that, I've done Berlin but I'm afraid the 'fast course' thing does not make much difference to me as long as they are reasonably flat - I'm not in the greyhound league!  Frankfurt appeals after Teknik did it this year and it sounded pretty wel organised.

Great stats guys. Mine are pretty miserable but virtually no running for 6 months.

1252 miles, av pace 8:09mm, 169.55 hours. Turbo/spin 50.51 hours and lots of cross training/gym (not all recorded). No PBs but back to within 30 secs of 10k PB when 9 weeks back into running so hope that 2013 is a good year!

Last run of the year, Really nice 9 miler, start as you mean to go on, eh?

First 5 at LSR pace, then 4 trying to keep as close to 7:45m/m as i could.

9mile 1:17:02 

5miles 45:53. 4miles 31:08

Set up the watch to keep me in certain paces but saved the splits i set at each pace rather than per mile. Ill need to had a read at the book.


Anyway, have a great year ahead everyone.

8.0 miles in 71.30 for me today, which takes to me to 1345 miles for the year. PBs over 5k, 10k, HM aswell as completing my first marathon.

Races for next year so far: Alloa HM - March 17, GSR HM - Sept 1 & Loch Ness - Sept 29. Need to find something for the summer though, maybe the Edinburgh - N.Berwick 20 miler at the start of May. That would be a new distance for me.

31/12/2012 at 18:56

Why dont you do the Edinburgh Marathon, still plenty of time for training and that alloa HM will fit in well with most training planes. 

31/12/2012 at 19:03

Because I've already talked myself out of doing 2 marathons next year! I tried to do Edin/LN last year, and ended up pulling out of Edinburgh a few weeks before, then got injured during LN

So after those disasters I want to build upto it a bit more steadily this year. Albeit I doubt training for a 20 will be much less intense than for a mara.

ok sorted: the link changes whenever I log out of Skydrive.  The above link  should still work...

31/12/2012 at 19:15
