Good parkrunning today bus and Philip. And some tasty training iron and ric.

simon , I thought you went sub 4.10 over 1500 this summer?

did a hilly, tempo Xc type session this morning.  3 of my least favourite words but the session went well. 5 laps (just under a mile each) off 60 sec rec.   came out ave 5.35 mile pace.  Factoring in the hills I'm happy with that.

I was given an eos as a replacement car for a couple of weeks.  Didnt like it.  Very heavy and cumbersome.

The reason I stopped running for 20 yrs was to focus on my drinking.  I put a lot of quality sessions in back then along side some easy drinking To fill the weeks stats out.     at 14.5 stone before I started training, I probably had the right drinking shape (assuming that shape was pear)

Scott, 800m are tactically easier and there is more that can go wrong in a 1500.  Was actually talking about a sub 4 at the track tonight with the young lads I train with, one is sub 3.50 1500 thinks I have the raw speed to go sub 4 but need to work on my strength.  More core stuff, tempos, hills etc.

I'm keen to have a go at the beer mile late next summer.

Scott , sub 4 might be a tough ask in one summer as the amount of speed work training required tests the injuries Though you might benefit from my less mileage style training To keep you fresh for the faster track sessions.  Of course you are a youngster so might leap to higher paces quicker.  Sub 4 its one of my targets for next summer.  Sub 4 will be tougher than sub 2 for the 800.  Sub 64 laps but with no recovery 

dachs - tasty tempo.  I have never done a tempo like that, not sure i could yet we have 10k times within seconds of each other. It just shows there are different ways to get similar results. Or that I'm lazy.

On the subject of sub 60 400s.  There is a 14.40 5k chap at our club who can't go sub 60, some people arent built for sprinting but can keep a very high pace up for miles And miles

andrew - consistant mile reps , nice work! 

Also that's 8 mentions of the word "sub" in one post.  A new record for me!

as did Katie holt from my club in the u23 ladies team silver

congrats jonnyd too

Where courses have out and backs, why would you not have a mat at the far end?

any mat at the far end of the course the cheat would just say the chip didnt register.

but does it matter?  they are only cheating themselves.  if there is anything fishy about prizewinners then any award is held until the race director is satisfied

Ha, had to double check as that photo doesnt look like me...looks like i need a haircut too to get rid of that lego hair for xmas  

good memory dachs - yep that pb was a solo run and briefly went off course so i always thought i would beat it, it was just a suprise that it happened on sunday.  i think the track training/racing in the summer defn helps with holding a higher pace for the longer races maybe hiding my lack of specific training/endurance work.  Coach has set the target as sub 32 for trafford...which i think Matt will be racing and going for a similar time.  hopefully we can help each other get it.

nice work on the podium Simon.  greenwood is obviously a class act over xc and is going well at the moment, so to have him in sight is a positive for 2015.

RW: Good effort on the beer mile :)

i think the original said it had to be from a can, (but you couldnt modify it such as puncturing it and shotgunning it down your throat quicker)  but i noticed the last attempt i saw they used bottles.

also the beer cannot be opened and left to go flat.

official results in and was 32.20 for 36th.  So a 39 sec PB.

Great xc racing Andrew.  I'm reminded of a saying "if you keep doing the same things you will keep getting the same results". Stand along side this chap, get out in front and fight to hold him off.  Don't let him pass.  It might cause a blow up, it might be this chap is better than you but it might put doubts in his mind and you beat him.  Best find out!

ric. Glad the training is coming on.  Keep building it up and enjoying it and I'm sure races will come back into your view.
