Hope you're feeling better today NZC. I'm impressed by yours and Tom's respective marriage streaks btw!
Also hope JEB and LMUH are feeling better - take it easy.
Tom - I stumbled across Flogging Molly on Kerrang Radio one night and thought they sounded good. Reminded me of watching the Dropkick Murphys at Reading a couple of years ago.
Good session Simon (and yet another good Brum joke) - and oooooh how exciting about AW!! Will make sure I buy it tomorrow and have a look. (I do like AW but have trouble keeping up with weekly publications... must subscribe).
Enjoy the camping trip RFJ, and hope the weather holds out for you.
Last hard: 25/05
Last rest: 17/05
I did it I did it I did it - I ordered a Garmin Forerunner 110, yay! Only the most basic, with no HRM - I've worked out suggested pace times using the McMillan calculator so will just use those as a guide. The main thing for me is an inability to maintain a consistent pace during interval training (unless I'm on the Treadmill of Doom)... might consider upgrading if I get on with it ok.
Happy weekend everyone!
Simon:Way back in 86 I remember runing an 2.02 800m and then a 4.11 1500m within a week of each other. Both were on a cinder track
'During the war !'
JEB and LMUH: Get well soon oh and NZC too
Tom and Simon: I'd need to have a dig through old training diaries to see exactly what I was doing re track sessions back then
I'm sure Morghan would be able to offer decent advice on this.
Simon:This thread might be of some help from last year.
Lyrics: personal jesus. Can't believe no-one got that.

Cheers Birky - don't worry about not commenting on it - i'm rubbish at commenting on everyone else. Thanks for the link. I'm used to the 'back in my day' stuff from everyone at my club ...i say i'm an honest trier, as compared to those with natrual talent LOL!!
Tom - I've met Morgahan at Bedford - my missus runs for them too - and he is completely different to me - he definitely moves up to 8/15 from 400, whereas Ihave moved down. His 400 is loads faster than mine
Yes O - I'm still getting over the excitement of the AW mention. Agree about the stupid M35 vets category though - sooner or later it will be scrapped I hope!
TomRegarding ease of 20mins for 5K, I think it depends what sort of runner your are.If you're coming at it with good leg speed (eg young and/or from a track background) then yes, 6 weeks or so for a bit of endrance, and away you go.If you're an ageing vet more used to half marathons, it can be a rather anaerobic experiance, and a big ask regarding leg speed. Took me about 3 races to get there.If you just can't move that quickly, it's a different story...
