Morning All.

NZC.I know i have a tendency to live in the past when i talk about my previous performances and what you say about getting your mind in the present is very true. I did hugely enjoy the experience though and i would hartily recomend it to any of you ultra folk out there who want a challenge.

Talking about the present. I need to think about qualifying for comrades next year.

Will do 9 miles this morning, maybe another 7 miles tonight and ive decided to race a yorkshire vets 5 miles at walton near wakefield tomorrow.

Good Runnings everyone.

M well done with your weight loss! Must be all those fast times you keep putting in!
02/06/2007 at 09:58
Cheers Soda - as I think I posted (to FIN) yesterday, it depends upon what you're used to. Most of my runs have rises and falls of 20-30m so slightly less magnitude than NF, but not what I'd call mountainous!
Have to say your training is more thorough than mine...

Today : 9-10 easy miles
Why : South Downs in two weeks...

Upside is that I've managed 35-40 miles a week for the past two months, whereas a cursory look through the training diary reveals around 30mpw in the run up to last years South Downs. I hope thats a good sign!

Have a super weekend , looks positively Bahamian out there today!

02/06/2007 at 10:25

M - well done on the weight loss that is good going. :0)

Sodahead - I think Hilly has done the New Forest marathon? I've done the half, its more undulating than hilly. Mind you from memory the undulations were sweeping and quite long, so although not steep they did drag on a bit. I had a bad run on the half there. So one day I will go back to put that to bed. Hmm looking at that profile it looks more hilly. Perhaps the marathon is a different route to the half then, or they could have changed it, don't remember it as ''hilly''...

DD - enjoy your tapering!

Gobi - best of luck with racing and pole vaulting!

Pammie - good news with your ankle. Did you get the wobble board in the end? Teenage scoobs had a sleepover last night. They're all still here in their P.J.s as is the wobble board that they had fun on last night!


Picking up club biscuit wrappers, wrapping paper, sweet wrappers, bedding, odd socks - ewww, pillows, cushions, endless cups, glasses and cereal bowls and unsticking popcorn and mushed in crisps from the carpet....

Sorry not that

What: cycle this afternoon
Why: Practice of pedals
Last Hard; Last night
Last rest: Wednesday

hello all

good news on woofie scoobs, you must be very relieved. happy birthday to teen scoobs.

great 10k scobos - 33s improvement on the course is very impressive especially at that level

sorry you had a bad one peterG but if you felt awful with still almost a marathon to run then it has to be the right decision

NN - enjoy your hols! are you going away or using it to do loads of training and catch up on sleep?

sodahead - looks positively mountainous to me

M - watch you don't fade away, need those muscles for going faster you know

hang in there pammie and wabo, you'll both be back soon
