Hi Mike Sheridan, thank you for such a positive response and I only hope I can improve to better times as you say. I would like to say that as long as I am out running with club members and other runners, this is the most important thing.
Hi Brian Slack, if I can motivate myself to do better than I thought posible why can't you. What I have learned is the stress of achieving you goal is allways hard work, but with dedication and self belief it can improve. Not forgetting what we all agreed previously as long as your in good health and listen to your body.
Hi David Jones 39, I agree with what you say but trying to achieve our goal when your older is an issue I am struggling to get used to. Within my self and not wanting to sound bigheaded I feel even closer to 18:30 and not the 19:00 mins is posible for me "BUT" it is still a confidence thing at my age and as stated previously concerned about media information on older people dieing during excerise.
Hi David and Peter thank you for your comments on this issue. I would love to improve my time of 19:57 but only if I do not have to push my self to hard. Personaly I think I may get down to 19;00, but I am not to worried on this goal. Top of my agender is to continue enjoying running with other people. Regarding Martin Rees he is one month older than myself and he also holds the World record for the Half Marathon for his age group.
