Wow what a lot of success stories !
SM6 that's a truly amazing half marathon result , so pleased for you ! Very very well done indeed
OH superb 10k PB as you say especially after last weekend who would have expected that ?
SC pity your race didn't go so well ! There are others , put it behind you
Ollie 92 miles ? That's incredible ! Do you work ?
NP good result as ever congrats on 11th overall and 1st V50 when do you go up a catagory ? Some will be glad to see you move up ! Others will not be so pleased!
MG7 nice pace for the 8.5 on the trails sounds lovely
Cal tell me about it ? Rubbish sleep is all I ever get ! Nice to see your legs found some bounce
Really pissed off I have a little 'crick ' in my ankle so not racing today ! Not too worried about it don't even know how I did it ! its no there all the time but just occasionally ' cricks ' you know what I mean ! I have an important event with club next weekend in Wales which I need to be fit for so resting it ! So swimming later
SM6 was also out early for a 10 miler this morning , posted before I had even got out of bed
Yellow52 some times it isn't about the times but the bling ! still not a bad time for a dodgy course
Tek nice mileage for the week
S17 this is the place for marathon advice so listen and learn
NP superb park run time as ever and sounds like an enjoyable sunny 10 today
MG1 nice10 and lucky you as well getting out in the sun, it was a soggy run for me today
Cal well run but and I hope you get a time sorted ...how annoying about the chip ! reminds me of my first ever london marathon !! I didn't realise till I got to the finish and stuck my foot out for the chip to be removed that it had fallen off !! it was back in the days they gave a Tyvek strip which we stuck on rather than a plastic tie and I didnt think to lace it through my trainers I along with several others had to wait weeks for an official time it was wet and loads had the same problem
OH you must be shattered after all that and well done to Els for showing how the girls do it
4k (2.5miles) relays well that was painfull ! it was a dismal night wet and windy 44 teams in all 12 ladies teams , we had 1 senior and 2 WV35 and me old granny to make the senior team I ran second in our team which I was happy about not so much pressure, first to lady came in at 14.47 !! the second woman ( the fastest local and one of the fastest WV50 nationally ( check out CATHERINE NEWMAN Exmouth Harriers ) came in 15,05, our first runner came in at 16.23 then it was my turn I managed to overtake the girl that had gone off 1 minute in front of me from another team, I just about hung on to 6.50mm for the first 2 miles but the last 0.5 of a mile (sorry I run in miles not k no matter the distance ) was into a terrible head wind , I ran 17.21 so quite happy considering the conditions the next girl in our team ran 15.20 the last 15.10 so I was way slower than the others but fast enough to nab us the second prize it was a brilliant new event that was spoilt by rotten weather a lot of hanging around to run 4k then of course waiting to see how the others get on ..
6.5 soggy miles yesterday
3 soggy mikes this morning and them this afternoon when the sun came out I headed for the pool and went swimming and got soggy again 50X 25M FC in 30 mins
Weather looking better for tomorrow long run of 15 miles planned with a friend
Tek yes I am fine thanks , just not had 5 minutes to myself this week to catch up here looks like you are in good shape with that 8 miler
NP well done on tne cross country .. nice swimming and running double ! I have also started adding swimmimg to my schedule , should get in 2/3 swims a week from now on ...
OH sounds like a tough but enjoyable few days enjoyed reading your report and Els obviously had fire in her belly and wasnt going to let you beat her again !! girl power !!
DD so close !!! damn those 3 seconds !! still pretty quick though and nice WAVA
Yellow always nice to find new running routes enjoy !! have fun at the park run , and no ! on power of 10' park run is separate to 5k which is annoying as my parkrun PB from last year is 21.19 !! 11 seconds faster than my recent road 5k PB
Cal glad you are feeling better ... dont do too much too soon
SC nice 8 miler ! whats your next race ??
Rest day here .. 4k relays tomorrow to say I am dreading it is an understatment ! I am in the club senior team and when Inlooked at ither senior teams a couple are made up of university students !!! and we know how fast they can run !!! hey ho looking forward to the pub after
Just a quick post , just woke up after sleeping off a night shift
Popped in to say a massive well done to OH ! I saw your FB post about your half marathon PB how you managed that with the hills and wind as you reported is beyond me ! Awesome running and I hope it hasn't caused a domestic ! Ha ha beating Elspeth for the first time '
Back later to catch up properly
