Or if you dare get to your local parkrun and absolutely smash the 5km. A huge sprint at the end will show something near your max HR.

Cat... Our park run has a 250 mtr uphill to the finish, that should push it up to max.

Job done!

I have sorted out my mp3 player, so no excuses for not turboing now. Nipped out in the horrible wind and rain, couldnot believe how many cyclists were out, they are mad.

Anyone making any NY resolutions or want to put in writing their goals for 2013.

My goal is to complete Outlaw Half, lose 20 pound in weight hopefully by Outlaw Half or soon after, and to be able to train consistently throughout the year. Oh and to take part in at least one Parkrun.

Steady...hope you make your goals, I'm sure you will.
My goals are not to just finish Outlaw but to compete and finish in a decent time.

Well Razor as a team last year we did 15 and a half hours, so I am sure you will make it.

Cake..I'll do my best not to break another leg and I'll hold you to the malt after
Good luck with your training and weight loss , oh and grape peeling ;-D

my goals are pretty much the same as Steady's

-finish outlaw half

-lose about 20 pounds

-complete a marathon (or at least get to the start line uninjured - if I manage that I should be able to complete the damn thing) - if I don't manage the April one I signed up for then it will the the outlaw one

Evening everyone

Set my alarm and went out early this morning in wind/rain/dark. It wasn't cold though and not too bad except that after 45 mins my face hurt from the weather and being the wuss that I am I decided a warm shower was far more appealing than another hill.

Goals
The only race I have booked this year is Outlaw Half
But I intend to keep working towards my 100 parkrun t-shirt with my daughters
And I have a cycling weekend in Berlin with my brother in September
Would like to find an autumn marathon

Lovely getting to know you all this year and meeting up with several of you at Outlaw. Happy New Year to you all xxxxx

Morning!

I'm off for a run through the woods. What are your plans for today?

Happy New Year everyone

I have had a 4 mile run, a family walk in the forest and am going to do a turbo session later

I turboed this morning did 40 mins of Audiofuel, wheezed and coughed loads so took it steady, then realised with about 5 mins to end that I had not used my inhaler. Waited until I finished then used it, which made me feel better, as I thought I was really unfit. Been down to Southsea and had a long walk along the seafront in the winter sunshine. Cold and windy but OK and so many people out walking there, I have seen it much quieter on a summer bank holiday.

Happy New Year everyone... Hope good time had by all! Nice to hear you're running again Maths, Woop Woop. 
Hope the run in the woods went okay Chili! Cake, if I make it round Wild Boar do I get a Malt (Jura) would be fine! Indeed Razor, living up to my name. New years resolution. - make it to May without injury. 
Bet the walk was lovely today Steady...

I managed a 30 min run today. Fallen out with my new Garmin as showed running much slower than thought. Still putting in walk breaks to not overdo it. Turbo tomorrow. General plan this year,

· Cotswold Supersprint, an Olympic somewhere and Wild Boar
· Lose at least 3 stone
· Find a new job! 

What could possibly go wrong...

Evening everyone

The run through the woods was wonderful. Ankle deep in mud and water but sun was shining and everyone very happy. I met up with some friends and introduced them to the place. Also my Big Girl (10) came with us on her first proper trail run. She was great. Managed the distance no probs and certainly wasn't the slowest of the four of us. Am very proud of her and looking forward to us being able to do longer runs together.

oii - great to hear from you!! good to hear you are still around, bad news about the foot, hopefully recovery from the op will be quick
