Alehouse: "beat as many people as I can in anything I take part in". Rarely do I let people pass me! Probably because I set off nice and steady and run fairly even paced races. Thanks for the line, BR! Aiming for 80% WAVA over 5 or 10k. And if I don't get it I won't shed too many tears: just glad to be running. Would like to run 366 days this year (although nose op may force a re-think!) and at least 2016k,and preferably rather more. Top 100 in my age group rankings would be nice, and i hope to make a difference to the athletes that I advise. And to celebrate the successes on here, of course. Would love to join Hilly in the sub 20 club! Sale Sizzlers anyone? Should be on your list, OL!
AOH D33, Cape Wrath Challenge week, Dirty 30, Dales Trail 30, Snowdonia Mara and a few halves and parkruns. Would be nice to better my half PB (1:55:19 ) 1000 miles in 2016 2016 k in 2016 100 miles/month
BR - "beat as many people as I can in anything I take part in" (BR told me to put that) He likes to be competitive.
Chicksta: Hamburg (17 April) and Prague (8 May) marathons - as close to 3:30 as possible and hopefully a consistent performance in both races
Dibs - AAA triathlon March 19th (sprint)- stretch the legs and have fun. HIM Bussleton May 01- around 6 hours would be awesome, but as close to it as possible I'll accept. Under 2 hours official HM time (have not completed the distance in a while and is a mental ache). Hopefully be thinking of a full IM in the next year or two
Don wants to get under 38 mins in all four Polaroid 10K events this year
Dustin Having enjoyed track work the past 2 summers, I'd love to have a crack at a fast 10k (as much as I hate that distance). Brought my mile, 1500 and 800 times down the past 2 years so the natural extension is a 10k and maybe a track 5k. Before that, I'll enjoy some trail marathons, and provided I stay injury free, maybe a stab at a GFA on a flat, boring road mara given I step up and age cat in the Autumn.
Emzap get back to a sub 25 min 5 km. Run 1678 km (I think that was Pammie's 20.16 miles a week)
Hilly - get back into marathon shape for April 3rd and do the best I can. Get back under 20 mins for 5k, back under 70 mins for 10 miles and enjoy new races.
Oliver: To lose to as many people as possible. Attain a Perfect 300 in Tenpin Bowling. Set up a Bingo Hall. In terms of running: Sub 3 hour Marathon, 80% WAVA rating, Sub 1 hour 10 Mile, Sub 17 minute 5k.
RFJ - To start with a sub 90 half then down to 1:27:30, 67:30 for 10m and sub 40 and sub 20 for 10 and 5 k's
Welsh Poppy:Races; Llanelli Half13th March,Cardiff Worlds Half 26th March,Swansea half,LV Half,Swansea 10k,Weston Super Mare half.I am just happy to run 5-6 days a week injury free but would love to get under 2 hours for a half again(current pb is 2.12)
Hi LmH - why not run it? Slightly faster than your steady pace but mixing up training never hurt. Just a bit of trail and some gentle hills... chick – great mileage Ale – well done on the PR, and good result for your girls OH – sounds like a decent day’s training
What - Final Hampshire XC (near Southampton) After rain all morning it actually turned out ok and was actually quite mild. Decent course, some compact track, some thick mud, few hills, forest tracks and puddles. Last race of the season always attracts fewer competitors but I didn't expect to be 3rd vet scorer and 5th scorer for the senior men... Why - it's fun last rest - 7 days last hard - today
Ran another new route (with hills) and through a park. Island Gardens, Greenwich foot tunnel, University of Greenwich, Maritime Museum, Greenwich Park up to the hill to the Royal Observatory and the James Wolfe statue & back again. ~6.5 miles and ~54 minutes Goals/achievements to follow...
ohh bingo! I can tick off the bottom row, and the left hand column this week! what - easy run why - Last Hampshire XC tomorrow last rest - Saturday last hard - Tuesday lyric - nope hour in the end yesterday, run to / from station to coaching as no car. Slight niggle on the top of my foot today, possibly from trail shoes on roads?
morning Dibs - sorry to hear about the loss of your partners gf I'll agree that some longer runs need to be at easy pace, but - and it depends on goal distances - you need some fast past training. Sadly I've found one , at best 2, fast sessions a week leave me tired.
what - easy running plus U11 coaching Also promoting the club at a local company's "well being" day from 12-2 why - It's what I do last rest - Saturday last hard - Tuesday
