2 mile run, 10 mile bike, 2 mile run, im sure youll be faster than me so you wont be last, id guess youd be mid-field.

Have a look on the TeamMK website at the results from Summer Duathlon 1 to get an idea of times.

I'll take a look, but no promises...after all, I'm a coward at heart ;-)

i made it over 30mph once (M - pb 31mph)

ok you can all stop laughing now - i get scared at anything over 25mph!
26/05/2004 at 10:44
M - I hope that was on a bike and not on foot..........

Just read a thread on TriTalk thats put me off going to fast down hill, think ill get the 50mph under my belt then play on the safe side.

OK, Dr G. Hope the hills were fun!

Carl - can you enlighten us, or give us the link? Was it a falling off incident or some medical survey that says your nuts fall off at over 50 on a bike?

They would have been funner (eh?) had anyone else from my group bothered to turn up!!!!!

Still, I'm sure it did me good!

Just seen details of a 10K in Emberton Park, Olney on Sat 5 June - kick off 2.30pm. Have started a thread in events - post there if you fancy coming along! I'll be looking for about 45 min pace.

Tempting - and it can masquerade as a 'family afternoon out in the park'...

No wait - just remembered that the wife's away and I'm on babysitting duty. Never mind - I'll have to save my 45-min 10k till July.

Am on strict orders from my physio NOT to enter any race until the MK10K in July. :(

Just looking through forthcoming events and noticed that their is a 3km trail run abound Willen Lake on 12 September. Strangely though, they seem to think that MK is in Hertfordshire!?

Taken from the organiser's website:

"We aim at women and children - but also allow men with their partners or children."

Gee, thanks - but no thanks!


(Probably wouldn't have run it anyway - the idea of a 3k race doesn't really excite me. I'm not sure I'm fast enough over that short a distance. And it's less than half the distance of my shortest training runs. So probably not great marathon preparation!

Incidentally, if anyone fancies a day out in Oxfordshire, the Woodstock 12 is on the following Saturday afternoon - 3 laps of 4 miles round the grounds of Blenheim Palace.)

Depending on whether the Arsenal are home that weekend, I might join you at Woodstock SVT.

Nice one, Dr G. Race entry gets you free parking and entry to the grounds, so it's a good one to bring the family and friends to.

But apparently it's not quite as flat as Milton Keynes...

Sorry Nikki if that read like I was having a go at you - not at all. I just get slightly wound up by such races.

It seems slightly patronising that men are only allowed with their partners or children - it's like men are too competitive, so we need to burden them down with family to stop anyone running too fast and spoiling it for the others!

SVT - I tell you why all these ladies only races hack me off no end, it's because they just encourage women away from the housework...

Disclaimer - the above was posted for humourous effect (perhaps only in the eyes of the person posting, admittedly) and is not representative of the views of Mr N Wobbling...

BTW - Have you read the article in RW (not most recent issue but the one before) by a lady saying that she disliked and felt patronised by ladies only races?
