Wow, I go away for one day, and there's a frenzy on the forums... who is this guy... I voted for the other baldie... I thought he had won... This Malcs guy actually thinks he can sneak in by pretending to do some running?? hmm
I see he's a rugby player... I'm going off to find some runners. . . but no wonder he's so willing to wear a dress and bright pink compression socks!!
I'm such a tease!!! Good luck Malcs... look forward to seeing your training plan!
Jenf, I LOVE ELEPHANTS!!!! So, I will be using that strategy in future
Stan, Still making an assessment on the running club.. I see a lot of them at parkrun and other places, and have been considering joining for quite some time. It was never possible before, as working in London, I wouldn't even get back to Colchester until well after the training session had started. Although, now I'm going into the health and fitness industry, the chances of me being free for all the evening training sessions are unlikely. I must say that being first lady in parkrun certainly helped me earn some stripes with them. In the mixed group (of 5 of us) I was the fastest lady on all the repeats. there was another girl about my age, maybe a little younger, but def in her 20s, and then an older lady who told me she'd been running for 30 years. It was really nice to chat with her actually, as she said that the parkrun had given her a new lease of life in her running. Here I was thinking that the main positive outcome of my helping to get the colchester one started was getting those poeple who would otherwise stay in bed and do no exercise to come out to parkrun. its so nice to hear it is also providing motivation for a seasoned runner who is struggling with the inevitable decline in speed that age brings. Anyhoo, another club run tonight, so I'll make my verdict whether to join after this I expect
Mr P, you better follow DS2's advice... if parkrun is anything to go by (which i'm sure it isn't much) then I'm gonna beat you at London (well I wont coz i will have run the best race possible at Manchester)...
Hi Kirsty, are you talking about the one on the app? I think last year, both coaches in the competition modified the training plan somewhat. I personally think its a bit light on mileage,but I haven't looked at it for over 2 years, so it might have changed.
I think you would be better off following the training plan that they publish for Malcs...
