LOL Freemers,


Love the opening post, especially as I've got no intention of running a marathon next year.  The furthest I think I'll be racing is 10k.

A whole year with that title. I'm not my OCD will handle it.

First mara for me will be Malta at the end of Feb, but main target will be Comrades so it won't be an all out effort.

Happy new year everyone.

Just put my last post on the 2010 Marathon Thread, I was going to suggest "2011 Marathon Tread" too NP

Not sure if I will be posting much, as I've no marathons (or any events) planned as I'm not sure if I'm ever going to get sorted and get back running properly again, but I will keep lurking and checking in on how you are all doing.

Good luck to all.

Comrades, Joe that sounds great, good luck.

Hi every one. Am looking forward to 2011.

Aims are
1) sub 1:48 half at Stratford in may
2) finish first marathon in autumn.
3) run 900 miles in process
4) lose 14lbs whilst doing the above!!

Hope you all have a good 2011

Hello all this will be a once chance for me Just the one at VLM Though due to life events will primely working on my base as last decent mileage was last march so a few months of pure base (note won't be all slow running) so guess i won't have any chance of specific marathon training

Because of this i'm tempted by Abingdon never done 2 in a year but common sense says no i have a 10km to master

Happy New Year all

Just got back into running and will be doing my first marathon in May - the Halstead & Essex

Happy new year, I still need to sus out this years calendar to see what I'm going to do.

Have fun and enjoy the running.

Happy New Year!

USB very well done to you. Hope your training is going well

Hello again Pammie

lacebylady hello to you too

Here we all go again then. I finished last year on 2764 miles, no injuries and 2 unexpected pbs as old pbs were set when younger and after several years of running. Have now been back running 20 months, exactly the same time as I was out of running and really looking forward to what this year can bring. I don't set targets just hope that my times will continue to fall if I train well.

Hope there are not too many hangovers around this morning and hope the year is a good one for all!

I have a 10k race this morning

Happy New Year guys.
01/01/2011 at 10:30

Tread? lol!

We've got water again!! THAT makes it a happy new year! 

6m for me this morning and made the most of it being New Year's Day by running along the, usually busy, main road.

Targets for this year are pbs for 5k-marathon (x2 for the Half). Apart from London, I'm planning on doing Abingdon and/or Snowdonia (probably both)
