HeOw - you sure its only 2 weeks till taper? counting weeks is NOT your strong point I recall.
Green Start for me. Think I might phone up tomorrow and blag a championship start ala 15w.14 physically and mentally painful miles tonight. Hated every one. Deep Joy.
Forecast if it materialise is going to marmalise everyones lsr or race this weekend. A lot of people will be messing around with their first week of taper to compensate I fear.
marmalise? What a brilliant word.
If the snow this weekend prevents me from doing my 14 @ MP for the second week running, I will take it as an Act of God meaning I shouldn't bother.
15 west - I beleive its from the other end of the east lancs road - Ken dodd/scouse slang for brutalise/murder/trash etc.
See you there SR
x - post - Bet you dont Lit - bet you fit in somewhere
Well... but I don't want to much cos it'll be hard.
Chris, I'm in the smug bastards' bit of the blue start, but going slower than you, so don't forget to wave as you zoom past me/trample me underfoot.
Morning all - not as much snow here as predicted...still plenty of time for things to change but think Wilmslow will still be on now. Will be dry sunday but a cold wind from the east.
I am snowed in. Office shut - day at home.
Mark, it's on page 43. Hope the back is okay - maybe you could just skip the long run this week; it's not like you haven't already done loads of long runs.
Snow here is wet but manageable. Though I still reserve the right NOT to run 14 miles @ mp tomorrow if there is a massive headwind blowing horizontal snow into my FACE. Grr. Like on my recovery run this morning.
My FGFA place is sorted so I don't have to share a toilet with you plebs but can live in luxury with NP and the likes (and look on jealously at Lit).
Well....it's a long story but....last spring I got a sub 3.15 and as am over 40 that qualifies me for a GFA which I got. But then last autumn I went sub 3 which actually qualifies me for a FGFA place....so I upgraded, but upgrade didn't happen for some reason as number is not FGFA number, but now they have upgraded and will send a new number next week.
Not sure what to do today, maybe will run 8 or 9 miles easy is this lovely spring weather, and then just a 5 mile easy tomorrow before half on sunday.
I am going to race it - might not really push it. Planning on running at about 6.25 to 6.30 pace. Supposed to be really windy so that might be a factor.
Morning - absolutely no snow here but a howling gale. Due to all manner of work related disruption I had my rest day on Wednesday and did the 4 mile recovery last night. Therefore I am going to do the 11 MLR tonight and abandon the plan to race at parkrun tomorrow. I'll just do 9 miles with maybe a bit at marathon pace in the middle if I feel OK.
15W - well done on the upgrade. I'm currently in blue but expect to get a green number next week. It's good there, hardly any queue for the loo.
Surrey - I was in green last year and I can't say I really noticed any celebs once I got going, but then I'm quite a bit slower than you.
There will be no outdoor activity here - am I the only one whos had a deluge? Need to find a treadmill but dont fancy 18 with 14 @ mp in a garage - that would just see me off.
