sub 4 hour group,if anyone wants to get together

Blimey, Ikle, have you a new superpower, being able to post TOTPs at will ?.

I'd forget about aiming for a finish time for Stroud.., trail marathons are all different, could take you 1-2 hours + longer than road. Just enjoy it. Any idea of how much hills ? Might give you some idea.

Howard, the Garmin 310 for ??125 is great value, lot of watch for not much. 20 hours battery life, very solid, nice big buttons, and has a heart rate monitor. Useful for getting back into training for VLM?
210 is simple, less features.

Great photo 2old. Enjoy the beers or whatever you chose. Job done.

Not that it affects many here but VLM ballot entered.

Well done chic, look after yourself, the room spinning doesn't sound good. Lots of fluids.

2old, some negative split. amazing time, think most would've given up with the calf so early. hope its minor.

DD well done.

A tough day for all with the weather and that course.

ACoop, nice one. 20 miles after a fall is great going.

Pete, Ikle understood exactly what I meant. Hadn't seen you post before (unless its 3 years+ back) so wondered on your running history, successes.

If anyones stll up, VLM ballot up soon in next hour, if not already.

Hope everyone having a good Easter break.

Coop, hope you're okay after the fall.

Howard VLM 2015 is a long way off, build up steady. Sure you'll be fine.

Ikle spotted a few FB photos of you with mid & fore foot striking perhaps. Pushing it at a park run is not exactly easy practice, especially if you already had sore calves. Hmmm..

Pete, what's your story? Not sure I saw a summary.

Followed Fridays 19 trail miles with 10m trail yesterday, on v tired legs but had to be done as part of training. Two lovely days sleep in though as bonus and a rest day.
Might see you at Borders Lo65.

Ikle great report. And going for trail marathon in May. Remember no impending little Ikles till post July 26th and TR24, or your place goes elsewhere!

Oh, Switching to mid or forefoot took 6 months for me, and with gym work strengthening too. Don't expect to just switch in 2 runs. if your current shoes have big wedgy heels it won't help either if you try force mid strike even more. Thought you pronated anyway?
Something to work on over summer. Be careful, working calves hard is close to those knees, and only a week after VLM.

Jovi two comfortable sub 3:30s in 7 days. Respect. I think taking a holiday around a race definitely helps, better sleep and food. And no work. For some reason you're in a more positive mood . Worked at Malta for me doing an easy 3:24.

LO65 very inspiring story. And still a great time. Like Susan I have no idea why you are tired today either. O4S on the sub 3:30 thread and similar age to you ran a great sub 4.
Also mentioned her friend, male 65-69 who ran 3:13 at VLM. Ouch. Suspect he was sub 2:30 when younger. So not fair.

Having to juggle sessions and practice less is more this week.
Ran 10 and 16.5m trail last Sat& Sun so I could watch VLM and the football in time.
GB athlete away at camp so helped run some of the sessions, giving people's 1k splits Monday, then hill session Thu. Fun, enjoyed it. New runner came so looked after them.
Yesterday afternoon, 19 miles trail, with more planned today for back to back. Weather and views across to Wales just perfect. Friend took me through "Dungeons". Ouch. Down, down then tough up but lot of fun.

Red sorry to hear about the op.

Col, great time, will that come down, or did chip fail to register on the mat?
Ant, excellent 5 minutes.
KFC, tough race, good grind to finish though.
Nicki now you've unlurked, you can post and help others now.

Lots of my club pals all struggled second half, what was the temperature like?

2old, lfc. ..what a result today

I understand where Brendan is coming from, Mo has a lot to learn. Best to do 5&10k whilst he can, then move up. Those guys today, probably had 4 years marathon experience and had between won tons of majors. All had done a sub 60 half too I think. Mo would need 2 years plus to catch up.
