I'm about to start coaching forum member velloo and there were a few suggestions that we start a thread similar to the popular Moraghan/Stevie G one on here. So, here it is.We've been in "talks" already, and I've got plenty of ideas, but I'll wait until velloo has posted with a brief introduction before I start rambling. Hope you all enjoy and feel free to chip in.
It'll be like Moraghan/Stevie G but much slower and with booze.
If there's booze can I pull up a chair?
All sorts of jumpers
Will there be any running or is it all beer and Pringles.?
Sedward looks like he means business
Gin and frazzles all round.
The aim of this training is to improve my 10k times (and other distances under HM) and hopefully those of other people targetting those distances.
I've just finished the P&D up to 55miles a week training and the 5 week recovery plan. Prior to that I ran approx 40 miles a week sometimes quite a bit less. Started running in 2005 at a low level, and until joining a club in 2011 ran approx 20 miles a week and didn't race much.
I'm FV40, 106lbs (that will go up over Xmas) and 5.2'.
PBs 5k: 18.5x, 10k: 39.4x, HM 1.26xx
I'm V40, 5'2 and I'm targeting your weight...
I weighed less before I started running, maybe it's all those frazzles.
7.5 stones seems very light. But then 5 feet 2 seems very short
Okay, so Veloo is on the low side of ideal healthy weight. Great for a runner.
Still short though
I can't get under 115lb. How do you do it? And the more I train the hungrier I am. ????
Minni I'm probably a smaller build than you, I don't have much in the way of muscle either. I've been roughly the same weight for 20 years. I did try to drop weight for the marathon but couldn't shift much more than 1lb.
Haha Sedward, you are definitely annoying but are there two of you?Looking forward to the thread, not getting involved in all this weight talk, I’ve met Minni and she looks like a proper skinny runner to me! Velloo – it looks like your 10k PB is the softest, though not massively out of sync and your HM PB is your strongest. Is it just a case of your HM and 5k times are more recent and you haven’t raced a 10k for a while or do you have a weakness over 10k?Oh and mines a pint of Copper Dragon, Golden Pippin please……
YD sadly the 10k is the most recent, but I've never really trained properly for that distance so I don't know if I'm crap at 10ks or just ill-prepared. That's why I want to focus on them. Best HM this year was 1.27xx. during marathon training but it was a much harder course.
Golden Pippin sounds nice. I need to get some Bruges Zot in for Christmas...
I'll look out for the Bruges Zot, always up for trying another tiple..........As for why you cant run 10k's as well as HM's I'll leave that up to coach.
wtf is 39.4? Is that 39 minutes and 24 seconds?
7.5 stone wtf is that?
