Where would you fit in?

Mid suffolk. Funnily enough that's where my mums family live... Must be genetic!

Out of interest, what were people's score ranges like? My highest was 78% lowest 64%. Seems to me I'd fit in anywhere moderately well. Wondered if that was the same for other people.

Ladies vest top with phone pocket

Personally I'd think it would be uncomfortable in bra.

I have a pouch that goes round my waist. Phone fits in and I can use it whatever I'm wearing. Mines a Spi belt, but there's lots of similar ones around.

Dropping gel wrappers in races - specifically Hull 20

Really bugs me too. Think more races should be up on it and prepared to penalize people for little, but how would it work in practice? Ironman type events may be more able to do so if they already have people on the course looking for drafting.

Run a thousand miles in 2015

Highest weekly mileage of the year (21.5) brings me to 197.5 for 2015. Was hoping to hit 200 miles but will do that this week. My excuse was I got convinced to go dancing on Friday night. Saturday morning, legs felt worse than after a long run!

Still behind but creeping along. Up to 176 for the 2015. Think for a kick up the butt I'm going to aim for 24 mile this week to bring me to 200 by next Sunday.

I really liked small gods.

Anyone read much of his non discworld books? I liked Nation when I read it. Also been working through the Long Earth series. Loved the concept, plot maybe lacking a bit but still worth a read.

how long is too long?

I don't know about legal limits, but when I worked in a bar I did a double shift pretty much every week (hours were 11-6 7-2.30). Unless things have changed massively (which they may well have done as this was a decade ago) the norm in various places I worked was an hour's break (unpaid) in a long shift. My advice would be for him to ask what normally happens about breaks during that period.

Very similar to Andrew d
Jan 75 miles

Need to do a consistent 21 miles a week for the rest of the year to make it.

Post race sore quads

Thanks for all the responses (and am amused to see someone even has the user name sorequads!)

Philomena Cunk is correct, it was Brighton Half. So no real downhills to explain it. Is interesting to see others who ran in Brighton also had sore legs/quads. Probably was the repetitive running on the flat/pushing myself. I ran a 3 min pb so we going for it! Legs not so bad today thankfully.... yesterday stairs involved a lot of saying "ow!"

Not concerned as I know it's DOMS but was thinking about leg soreness and wondered if anyone has any insight. In training my quads never hurt, I generally give them a cursory post run stretch and then ignore them. I ran a fast (for me) half marathon on Sunday and today my quads are the only part of my legs that are sore. So is this likely to be a sign they are a bit weak? Or a sign that faster running uses my leg muscles differently? Or just that they're a big muscle so did a lot of work.
