FL - I found the Famous 5 forum!

Gonna run my ar$e off through the winter and bag me a sub 3 in Edinburgh.

Hi mate, welcome. Good run tonight all be it a bit windy the bath was full of sand when I got out and my eyes are still full of it!

Still had a half decent run, managed 32:46 for the loop. Last year I was struggling to hit 34.

FF, I hear from Bryn that you had a good session tonight?

11/11/2010 at 21:05
You are already up to sub3 standard mate, just need to let your head know it.
11/11/2010 at 21:28

FL - I certainly have the confidence now that i can do it, after Abingdon. But a good few months of hard training will just reinforce that confidence even more for me.

Would never have got this far if it werent for the 'Famous Five'

HWD - Hi mate, you're definitely sub 3 hours already......hope we can get some more long runs in once we start marathon training. We'll have to expand the famous 5 to famous 6 soon! Training together makes us all faster!

FL - Yep, did some speedwork along the front with Bryn, I was going to say it's a lot easier with company, but it still hurts! No pain = no gain though! I added some extra miles on afterwards by taking a long route home.

Are you doing the Llanelli Half next year? It seems to get more expensive every year - its up to about £25 now! Trouble is that its not run by a club and they are miking it for all the cash they can get....I don't mind paying £10-£15 for a well organised race, and more for races like London - but Llanelli £25?!?

11/11/2010 at 22:09
FF, yes will be doing Llanelli ( yes it is a rip off!!! and he tucked us up fro the team in the 10k!!!!) We are also doing Tregaron half and Forest of dean. All training for London
13/11/2010 at 07:07
Off to do the Cardiff Parkrun 5K. Michelle is going to have a go for her first race.
13/11/2010 at 09:18
Best of luck! Nice morning for it.....hope Michelle enjoys! When's her first marathon????
13/11/2010 at 14:18

Went well, 17:44. But can and will do better! Lost it in the second mile and couldn't pull it back in time!!!

Michelle did 29:53 and really enjoyed. Will work her up slowly to the marathon so may be in the spring.

Afternoon all

Great run this morning. Nice to get off road for a bit.

14/11/2010 at 17:25
How far and where?
14/11/2010 at 17:26
7 miles on a running machine for me this afternoon. Now a 12 hour nightshift and maybe another 5 miles before bed in the morning
14/11/2010 at 17:30
10 miles for me, with 4 at 5:45 - feeling tired this week.
14/11/2010 at 17:30

Evening coach, how goes it?

We did the Fourth pond run with added sleepers to make it 11.30mile.

Just been looking at the forest of dean half. looks good, are we going for it?

14/11/2010 at 17:33
4 @ 5:45 pace FF, you must be really tired this week Where you been partying?
14/11/2010 at 19:03

I was trying for 4 @ 5:30 - the head said yes but the body had a different idea! The other 6 miles were a lot slower.

Sorry I missed the run this morning. Went out with the missus last night as it was her birthday and left the phone in the drawer until this morning.

I'm sure the Forest of Dean Half always clashes with another local race? Rhayader 20 mile is the week before I think?

Looking forward to next week's MT10 - always enjoy that one!


14/11/2010 at 19:44

We are giving the Rhayader 20 a miss as it takes too much out of us when training for London. So that's the idea behind the Halves.

Wish your Missus a very happy birthday from all of us here.

Also looking forward to the MT10, should be fun. Is there a team prize this year?
