I’ve entered the Cabbage but will be (literally) miles behind many of you.
PMJ – how fast do you realistically think you could get round there at the moment? I was going reasonably well (for me) early in the summer but things came to a grinding halt (literally) when I ran in to that medical car back at the 1st Yateley of the season and since then I’ve not really run a full-hearted road race to test where I am. Sunday’s Swallowfield 10k should be a decent marker, perhaps if I can run 39 or so there I might be able to run sub 65 at the Cabbage.
I do love a set of parentheses (literally).
I am aiming at about 62:30 which is 80% WAVA which equates to just under 38 for a 10k which feels about right. I went through 10 at Maidenhead Half in 63:30 so it isn't an unreasonable target. May set out a bit faster in the forlorn hope of sub-60 but I really need a couple of 10 milers to allow me to take such a risk and I haven't got such so may target Brighton 10k as a risky one and be happy with a safe one at Cabbage Patch.
Ric, its one of the many things ive realised is completely incompatible with the running lifestyle. Along with late nights, dating, playing other sports. Eating food with flavour and having a job with a commute
Disclaimer...this is my personal list,others will have different
That is a big disclaimer indeed. Are you seriously saying it is dating or running, because if that were the choice for me I'd not be running.
