Big G, thanks for holding the poll. You do live up to your name.
If i'm allowed to run tomorrow (seems likely) I will have similar tactics to NYD. I will stick with the lead runner only if he is not running sub 15 minutes. However, I will really push at 4k no matter what happens. Still havn't completely thought about it.
Kittenkat, get over yourself. You don't know the meaning of the word "joke". If you don't like some of the things I say then don't come on here complaining about it, just don't read it. I do wonder who the real attention seekers are sometimes. Mabe you pointing out that i'm an attention seeker is really just your own insecurity being revealed?
I can accept why some people get offended at times in life but I just don't understand why you would report me when you can just walk away from the thread and never come accross me ever again. I don't have to have impact on your life you know. Sad sad people whoever it was.
Ok my mouth can be a few seconds ahead of my brain at times I admit so I will be more careful in future and i'll leave it at that.
Hi guys. Just been reading back a bit and i'm not quite sure about what's going on but just to clarify, posting on this thread is nice but the real deal happens away from this thread and that's something no one can take way from me so as long as this thread is here and i'm aloud here, I will post but I will always be running wheather I have any involvement in this thread or not and that is the main thing.
I read something about racism. Not angry because I know i'm not a racist but just disapointed if I have come accross that way. If you know me you would know that I try not to treat people differently to how I would like to be treated and always give only what i'm given.
As for last night I was not quite sure what to make of the race. It was a 5k race with 3 laps and I went off very easy for once and actually contined to be easy for the whole course (which was stupid). I completed the course in 16:32 and won but I finished far too fresh which I wasn't happy about. I finished so fresh that I should have asked to do another 3 laps to make it a 10k and I think it would have been a negative split. 2nd place was no where to be seen.
To make up for the poor run, I did a 5k today and ran new a pavement PB of 16:11. Pretty hard work in all honesty but not a perfect performance there either. Nice to know that I am at my peak over the 5k just going into training properly so a possitive there.
I need to enter the serpinetine 5k today. I never did it before because I thought I had to go inyo uni but that isn't the case now so I will do it today and hopefully they'll except my form.
Doing the 5k race today at the AC. I have my strategy planned out but I have no idea on what the level of competition is going to be like. For the first time, i'm not gonner go off hard so we'll see where there gets me and for the first time I will be racing at a time of day which I like. I'll be back on later to engage in this intelligent running talk (no place for that on this thread). Seriously - i'm all ears nowadays so looking to learn.
Why are Bastille so good at making music? It takes a good song to make the famous ipod and so far they have managed an impressive 4.
Meanwhile i'm a bit confused as to if you have sex with a prostitute against her will, is it considered rape or shiplifting?
"Oh, I see. Gotcha. So it's an aspiration to be in the outside lane, because this is where those judged to be quicker will be running."
Flyaway, it's not like that. I would prefer running on the outside lane for 80 second laps as I will be getting paced and having a better workout at the same time. Johnas got it spot on except we were all running in lanes 1,2 and 3.
After I break the 2 hour barrier - "Ledgend has it that Samir Haddad does his hill work in dover" The next chuck norris.
"1) why don't you pace your race more evenly or slower than planned and see you how you feel in the latter stages - you seem to have more positivity for a good result in a session"
I guess your right Scott. I use the excuse of not having competition in my local park run for not pulling of a sub 16 performance yet I try to run away from the field in the first 0.5k. In future I will calm down at the beginning so I can at least run with someone and pace myself at the same time.
"it's clear you don't have mid 15:xx capabilities at the moment"
this is bullshit
"- oh and with the outside lane thing.. Why don't you stick to the outside width of the road / pavement when racing and see how much longer/ harder it becomes!"
That's just tough cornering and annoying and unnecessary.
Those blue lines in the London Marathon and the pacemakers should be removed from the race. Period.
Phil pub, the parashoot clothes are just clothes that used to fit me before I became a runner or clothes that looked different in the primark mirror. Good run by the way. My first track race will be interesting. I predict i'm gonner be stupid and not make the most of the inside lane so I need to work on that in between now and then.
Scott, resistance training sounds like a good idea but I don't believe in the idea about taking a runner away from what they know. Train how you race.
Do you have to where your club strip at events? I have a strong dislike for green and yellow as it reminds me of looser Norwich City. It also has a yellow stripe running through it so I will even look like a sex criminal at the same time.
