Good luck to the weekend racers, Barry / O&O / KR. O&O - Just consider it a taper week

Did the 'Woolton Hills' with group 1 at the club on Thursday. It was 8.4 miles constantly up and down the hills in an area of Liverpool. It was quite hard work but I did notice I was at the back on the first one and much nearer the front on the last, which is probably something to do with the fact this thread has taught me to run everything by starting conservatively and finishing fast...good for the confidence. Average pace was 7:41.

I still want your trainers, Ant

Talking of which, someone asked how many pairs of trainers we all had. I've got 2: a pair of saucony grid somethings (pretty dull looking) and a pair of Nike Lunarglides (I think!). They're the orange-soled things that feel like you're running on marshmallows but still manage to have an annoying 'slappy' feeling.

Gul / MsE / SJ - I did that to something my boss gave me once but I added "See me!" in the margin Along the same lines, I hate that American expression "My bad" when really they appear to mean "My mistake".

MsE - Looks like you're enjoying yourself on the FB photos!

Good luck RJ. Sounds like a manic exciting time ahead for you.

A good idea to take some time off, Keir. No point in running yourself into the ground. Hope you feel better soon.

Excellent session, KR. Were you the only one who could still see the jacket?

I skipped the club session last night. Girlfriend had a last minute meeting at work so I had no transport, which would have meant running 3 miles to the club, doing an interval session, and running 3 miles back which I thought wasn't sensible at this stage. Had sardines marinated in chilli, lemon, garlic and olive oil instead.

You've talked yourself right into it in just 1 paragraph there, SBD

A bit of both, Fraser. You never know what you'll be faced with on a Saturday afternoon. Properly refereed etc but they just deal with the aftermath of a challenge. One of theirs was sent off in the 85th minute for wildly wellying willynilly. I agree it doesn't fit with running but I agreed to play when I wasn't running so won't renege on it now.

Flaming busy at work, as always, with the rather frustrating news that one of our colleagues went off for 2 weeks with stress and managed to find himself another job whilst crying into his CV.

RFJ - A trying day for you so really well done on battling through it. At least doing it for charity means it's not at all a waste of a race. Well done.

MsE - Great work on the assault course XC. Have you thought about joining the army?

Joolska - I hope your sore throat has sorted itself.

MartinH - Pleased to see things are looking up for you.

Some really solid XCing from many on here.

Ant - I'm sure you'll heed the good advice from this lot. I want your new trainers.

Keir - You've had some cracking races and shown amazing improvement over the last couple of years so you were probably due a dodgy race at some point. Mind you, I wouldn't turn down an 85 HM so it ain't that dodgy!

If you don't like/don't know about/are not interested in football, look away now...

No running over the weekend but did play a football cup match on Saturday. We, a division 5 team, played away at a division 1 team and whooped them 5-1! A huge cup shock but was extremely hard work trying to keep control of the midfield so easily the equivalent of a speedy 10 mile run. At least when I'm running I don't have people trying to kick the living doo-dahs out of me!

Cracking run Jase and very even splits too.
Off to play footy now so I'll consider it a fartlek session!

Good luck with your XC Speedy."Listen to your body" might be another classic running mantra for your calendar.
Lorenzo - the bike looks a steal at that price, with 105 components which are very smooth. Most important is sizing so if you know exactly what size you need you shouldn't have any problems. As you already have a bike, if there were to be any problems, you wouldn't be without one. I should add that I haven't seen or ridden one but the reviews look favourable.

Now, Minni, because you don't have a fancy foreign keyboard like Ant, it sounds like you're going to run VLM with frozen fish on your head

Ant - "Er ner, perner" (as in the drink) is much quicker for getting into character! Learnt that one from an ex-girlfriend from Beverley. For Geooooordie, I use "noooo nakid jacoooooooozies". Anyone offended yet?! I grew up in Dorset and thank my lucky stars I don't have any of that accent.

PMJ - It was on pavements!
