Overdone it?

Posted: Yesterday at 16:14

Bob - dont get me started on the womens 1500m final last night.  After each lap All i kept saying was thats really slow they have to speed up soon as they hit 70 and then a 68 for the opening 2 laps.  8 secs slower than i went through my 1500m pb.  Mind you the last lap was fast i think the lead did a 61 but i guess thats no suprise after taking the rest of the race off.   Just dont get why someone in that final who doesnt have a 61s last 400m in their locker just sits in group running slow and doesnt take the pace on at lap 3.

Toddler running

i kind of agree with the more recent posts.  when mine were that age they wanted to come out with me, so we did a big warm up with stretches and made it fun then did barely 600m of running keeping it fun by racing each other to the next lampost/tree.  They could have run/walk 2k but i would never have done that as 3 yrs and under is very young.

as others have said they are just mimicing you and i bet you lavish lots of attention and praise too.  so of  course they like it.  They would also copy you if you stood in your garden throwing and catching a tennis ball in the air over and over again too.

regards distance at yr 6 in school (10 yrs of age) they dont run much over a mile in school xc races so i would question anything over this distance.

i was thinking the same Ric.  nothing to challenge him on as all the salient points were made a long time ago. 

KK - i might not often agree with you but hold the moral ground on his name calling.  rise above you are better than that.

seems like a fair question for a person new to racing would ask.

i missed a smilie off the end as it was meant tongue in cheek, if offence was taken it wasnt meant. but not withstanding my crass sounding comment FD is coming across as a chap who has trouble with those in power and calls those following the rules as fools and he is the wise man because he is bucking the system. 

I know many free thinkers like him, who test boundaries and the norm and some work in the same company as me but they get paid very well to put these skills professionally to use rather than to hoodwink a way to get his children off school to go to a theme park.

He is claiming to be the wise man and the rest of us are fools, i disagree...its just i put it poorly in the first post.

Faithsdaddy, i mean no disrespect, but you come across as someone who has limited/no power or influence and is fighting the system looking for every slight "win" or sneaky way past the bosses/hierachy.    If your way is so "wise" how come you only ended up as a postman?

Annoyances when out running

Miserable selfish runners who think the world revolves around them and expects the whole world to get out of their way because they are out doing a slow long run but it appears it's too much effort for them to move out of the way of oncoming "obstacles" too.

Matt - I have a vets league race on wed.  800 then 3000 then 4*100. I'm in no shape for a PB though But need to get a race out to clear a bit of rust.

Nice work on the casual sub 16  5k and win matt.

again some top experience and pacing from pmj.

i had went out for an impromptu track session this morning.  Got to the track and all around it was busy as some regional cheer leading completion was on. Lots of twentysomething ladies in Lycra. So did my session to the backdrop of this, Pom poms and cheers....though that could be a normal response for me training in a vest   Mind you when deciding which way the wind was blowing, I stumbled fell over my feet and landed on a heap, water bottle went flying. I cut knee, leg, arm and hands. So it might have been sympathy.

6*300 off 4 mins target sub 45s.  


Are you really a runner...

However I'm least suited to middle distance running,  it comes a little surprising as my summer season has gone ok.



Dean - Are you doing the BMAF track champs?  Or will you be practising your shooting?   I'm in for the 5,000m.

I can't make the champs this yr unfortunately. I saw your name on the list of entries and there is a decent shout of a medal. A couple of low/mid 15 but the rest 16 or slower. Good luck. 

if I was around I would do the 800 / 1500 double.  Unless there were late entries I had the fastest pb on the 1500 by 10 secs and only 2 of us are sub 2 on the 800.   Gutted to miss them as a decent chance of some medals.
