good racing bus, pmj and SG  but this weekend honours surely go to Dachs.  Excellent PB.  sure i think deep down there was possible potential for more but looking at the splits you look to have executed the best race possible on that course on that day.  and that has to be satisfiying.  your training was outstanding so im confident on another day on a faster course you would break 32. 

belated congrats to reg for gaining his vest.

..  Nervous for this one, mainly because Dean will be disappointed if I fail to beat 32.

damn right .  in fact dont even bother doing a report if it has a 33 at the front.  Time to turn the great sessions into great times...i think you will smash it.

im doing loads of slowish running on a treadmill as im too busy at work to train properly.  So no telford 10k pb attempt from me in december.   written off 2016 just aiming to get match fit for 2017

Might I have decent potential from these beginner times?

Woody.  Dry your eyes.  You are looking at this as if you are the only person ever to post on this forum.   There have been loads of people claiming stuff and after advice but basically were disillusioned, stupid or just trolling.   So after about a few hundred of these some people on this forum who test the credentials of posts such as yours.

anyway.  Why not start again.   How long have you been training.  When was your 5k pb set, and what mileage and type of training went into it?

Matt. Yes john has taken a break from coaching/managing our group.  But we had 2 coaches looking after our group so kev Hendrickon is coaching me now.  He was a very fast 5k guy back in the day

Good race SG, though if I'm being honest the parking was even more exciting

whats a proper vet though?

lots to catch up on but dachs 10k session stands out.  if you dont break 32 you need a long look at your race day prep and training.  put it this way if i did that session i would be looking for 31.30 zones on a race day.  i think you will smash the race, get one in now before the weather becomes a factor

i tweaked/pulled a muscle in my groin on sunday.  so another week of rest or when it felt better 40min progression runs where i start walking and every few minutes get a bit quicker.  this week added together with the fortnight i missed with the chest infection have flattened any chances of a PB at telford 10k.  but i will continue to build.

Also the m40 world masters 1500m heats were run in Australia this morning.  In lyon there were 6 heats and you needed a 4.10 to get to the final.  in australia only 2 heats and a total of 18 which had 16 to qualify and someone with a 5.11 qualified and the fastest qualifier ran 4.28!  what a pointless exercise...should have been a straight final.

OP - your times are alright, nothing special.  plenty on here cant do those times and will be cynical but plenty on here do those times in a training steady run.   basically i wouldnt wonder how far can you get but just concentrate on the next goal.  Once thats achieved set a new goal and repeat....

If you have some natural ability and train optimally you could get down to 15min something for 5k.   So you will beat plenty in a parkrun but it is a bit early to think about the tokyo olympics

Simon - have you seen the perth results for the 800?   m40s gold won in 2.00 and the M45 in 2.03.  i know you cant judge a championship race from home but the 800 isnt normally tactical......maybe should have gone

dachs - very fast reps and track tempo the other day. you should break 32 off that.

Simon - likewise very fast reps.

good pb's from reg and pete

im easing in gently after almost 2 weeks out sick so feels like im running with only 1 lung at the moment.   should pass soon enough.
