I did consider Sneyd but didn't enter in the end. I also considered the Bolsover 10k this Sunday but opted out of that one as well. Still being pestered to do the Santa Dash...Good luck to Muddy as the sole overdone it representative at Sneyd (unless Chris is running?).
Hope the 20k goes well McF.
I'm about to go home as the boiler has broken at work and it's 14 degrees and dropping in the office.
Mr V - Good point. Not been done for 2015 yet, though we did do it for this year. Might dig those targets out later and see how I did...
Ah yes, the end of year summary and predictions, good point Mr V, although I think the 'rule' is that you don't post them until 31st December / 1st January. I think we borrowed a template from SG last time. Bob - you'll have to look back to ~page 155 for your targets. Skinny - might not be advisable for you to look back there as there's your list of races you were going to do this year.
Has anyone done a Santa dash before? I've been asked to do one this Sunday at Rushcliffe Country Park, I'm sceptical.
I got caught short a few weeks back on my long run and had to duck into some fairly sparse bushes.
I had a slightly dodgy stomach before i left the house but in typical fashion i thought " must remember to take some loo roll" .... and then got distracted and forgot to pack it.
Anyway, i imagined myself as some kind of Bear Grylls foraging around and trying to find some sort of suitable natural substitute for loo roll ( like a decent sized leaf ) But all i could find was tiny leaves so had to make do with a clear plastic "Steak Bake" wrapper so that kind of pissed on my "living-off-the-land-survival-expert" fantasy.
. Hope I don't remember this story when I'm in Cornwall next week when I will no doubt have a pasty.
Lou - thankfully not! There are usually 3 or 4 groups who go out at different paces so there doesn't tend to be much waiting around or being left behind. Howard, the super V60 who led our group last night, often leads the fastest group but on this occasion he led the 8 min/mile group. However, as he doesn't have a Garmin (or seemingly much perception of pace), we hurtled along the towpath at an ever quickening pace.
