yellow bin bag??????
10/01/2007 at 09:35
I didnt realise we needed Specialist Equipment for a 5k

Yeah - if I'm not racing, I often marshall. Had you forgotten I'm a Serpie? I have to wear a smelly yellow bin bag - although one time last year I had the dubious honour of thrusting the appropriate medals at the sweaty winners.

I'm now wishing I was racing. I'd sort of decided my first 5k this year would be end of March. I thought I was getting a bit hung up about races and woould concentrate on the t word for a while.

THAT sort of bin bag:))

So Tracey...

what's the role call for end of Jan then:


I will be there to cheer you up and down the hills of Hastings. Great that you'll be there - must introduce you to my friend Ranjii who may well be running a similar time to you. I had better pop over to the other thread at some point. We don't discuss anything longer than a 10k here.

Well, we might mention the odd half and even the m......... but let's face it those matters are discussed QUITE thoroughly elsewhere....

can't you change your role for this pending FLOM? I am sure MF would cooperate. AND RUN with us.

Hipps - re "warming up" - you will probably want to do some strides.
You know how to do strides, don't you?
10/01/2007 at 10:20
you have obviously got FLM on your mind! It's LFOTM not FLOM! Err, I don't know. I really wasn't even going to be in London on that Friday. I'm just going to make a special trip because Hipps will be there. I know I'm not good in cold weather and i don't want to start the year on a downer. I am concentrating so hard on this mileage issue I don't see how I can do myself justice speed wise. Can't help feeling I am still in the getting slower phase. (I AM keeping the faith a la Chouette though) When I said I wished i was racing I rather meant I wished the occasion wasn't on that day. Make sense?

re "You know how to do strides, don't you?"

You just put your feet apart ....
and shift.

Mr Postie has just delivered our Serpies numbers.

too much talking about it - not enough doing it - miles that is:-)))

you have to establish that base level of fitness where running consistently is normal before moving on to dedicated pace work.

That's when you move out of the "slower" phase to the next level.

You can run but you can't hide........................:-)

off now before I get one of Hipps' slaps!!

I agree TS. Action speaks louder than words. Are you an Otis Spann fan btw?

Talking of action, I'd better get my trainers on and get out there once more :-))
10/01/2007 at 11:16
Don't know what i have to do to please you. Sigh. I can't take everybody's advice all at once.

I am doing the miles.

I have never done more than 22 miles in a row for three weeks. Last month I did 28, 27.5, 31. And this week - as a compromise - I won't cut back by a third as Chouette suggested - but I won't stomp through another 30 either. I am going to do the tough looking intervals set ceal has suggested. And I aim to get 22 - 25 miles in this week, then back up to 30 next week.

Won't that do?

oooooooooh! He's a crim!

tell me about those 400s then Tracey.
10/01/2007 at 11:34
What 400m?
10/01/2007 at 11:37
Today's 400's

I knew you weren't just looking at the scenery this morning!

That is really good. You will be getting all the gold stars going. You've already done loads of miles (see how I keep getting bullied about it by the likes of TS, JJ and now Impey has joined in) so you are allowed to do speed work.

Still, no-one pushes me around.
I just duck and dive out of the way.
They can't get me here!

Anyway, you must be feeling quite pleased with the way it's all going at the moment?
