Here ya go. Let's do this.

7 weeks to make sure ankle is ok to cope with another schedule, the Kinvaras are in the bin 

30/04/2013 at 20:17

Don't let the sub-title fool anyone.  I am far from advanced.  I just like to train like an afleet and then hit walls in marathons for the fun of it. 

30/04/2013 at 20:17

Who can we blame for the Kinvara's NN?  Who started the whole "you need light shoes" shit? 

30/04/2013 at 20:18

You got the bit about swearing right though 

30/04/2013 at 20:21

I cant remember who started the chat about light trainers, but can remember who suggested Kinvaras, not that I can blame anyone though, I should have known better and  I just happened to like the colours they came in..

You made same mistake as I did, I bought purple Mizuno's to match my purple Asics kecks.  Why for the love of GOD? WHY?? Cos I is a twat. Sorry NN, I must have sent twat vibes through the keyboard and you picked them up.  

Anyway, back to Prick&Dick. Are you restarting training?? What plan? 

30/04/2013 at 20:32

I will do the same up to 70 if the ankle allows.., things were going so well till that last 22 just 3 weeks out, mine starts on the 16th/17th June so will carry on spinning and running every other day for now and see how things are, I just hope its not going to be a permanent weakness as soft tissue damage often is  my wrist still niggles 4 years after falling off a bike !! that was alot more painful at the time though, but of course my wrists dont carry my body weight

OOh, its nice in here.

30/04/2013 at 20:34

Oh look.  It's a balloon.  So balloon, what race are you doing this Autumn or do you just like the jovial company?

30/04/2013 at 20:35

NN - you will be fine, you are recovering sensibly and made the right decision re not running VLM on it.  I have faith.  

30/04/2013 at 20:46

Not the first time I have been called a balloon I must confess... Not booked one yet, but on the cusp......

Where is everyone??

They've all been excluded on the grounds of not doing an autumn marathon. 

Don't think I'm going to sign up for one just to be in the cool kids' club. Cos I'm not.

Apparently I'm getting a copy of Road Racing for Serious Runners for my birthday though. Maybe I'll go and start a separate thread for that and not let any of you bastards post on it.

Lets hope its a miserable cool summer, lol..no BBQ heatwave thanks very much

30/04/2013 at 21:03

Actually I have decided (from my running and cycling experiences today) that summer is a SHIT time to train, because SWARMS OF GNATS.

30/04/2013 at 21:03

G'awn Lit, you can have a wonderful thread with DF3 and talk all serious shit.  

30/04/2013 at 21:04

Men - what lickle race are you on the cusp of entering?  Chester I hope? 

30/04/2013 at 21:10

Ooh can I join in?  Hopefully attempting my first marathon this autumn at York and have been pointed in the direction of P&D by some knowledgeable forumites.  Looks like this thread will be a healthy balance of training talk and expletives.  I like it.

30/04/2013 at 21:14

Welcome TR85 what time are you hoping for ?

30/04/2013 at 21:15

P&D 55-70 for me, sub 2:50, Chester.
