wannabe ultra runner?

I agree  it should be about finishing but I have read articles where people don't get a medal if they don't finish in the required time.

Helloooooooooooooo Loula...................

You really have got me tempted now but not for The 50k in January but maybe after my next mara. Will have a look at the training plan you mentioned....

Have all the ultra races got a time limit ??? Its the only thing puttin me off ....wouldn't like to go all that way for it not be recognised......LOL Suppose the challenge would be for me to get faster.....then I wouldn't need to worry about not meeting the cut off......

Afternoon all,

Just a quick flying visit. it's Mr FrannyT's birthday today so just been ti inlaws and had a wee glass of vino.........................

Sorry to hear there are more injured peeps on board and hope they get better real soon.

Loula, You are determined and I think you can do anything you put your mind to......so I say give it a go................you never know unless you give it it a try........................Well done on your speedy 13.2 miles this morning.I will maybe think about it but not for January...if there was one later in the year I may be very temptedBut worried

Jude... Well done on your run with your cycling daughter......

Hi to everyone else.............Off to make my hubbys birthday dinner now.....................

No running today but will go to gym tomorrowfor weights session and some speedwork too.

My parkrun result for yesterday Official time 24.50. Was 4rth in my age catagory and 17th lady out of 75 ladies and 112 out of 208 runners. My age group at this parkrun are HOT in running times. The 1st lady home was even in my age group. She did it in 19.42......................I cannae compete with that.. LOL That is real fast ain't it......

Loula-  You have downloaded a female 50k plan..OMG

I have found that the further you go the more you pace slows. They say to get your marathon time that as a guide double your HM time and add 20 mins. or go to the running times race calculator- it gives you estimated times for races if you put in a recent race or run time.

My last HM race which was in April - one month before my marathon i did in 2hrs  6 mins so should have done the full in about 4.30 ..........................I was 6mins more .

I find I need to concentrate or else my form goes all to pot although I do zone out as you put it....................I must do but important to keep an eye on the pace and time if you are after target.

Still don't think I'd manage under the 5hrs for the 50k

Enjoy your free time before Missy comes home......................My son is off out to his  friends overnight.........me and Mr Frannyt have the hoose to ourselves......................mmmmmm

Loula.........................I'm no very good wiith winter training or running......................my knee plays up something awful so sadly a 50k is out of the question in January......................especially if we  get a winter like last year....................couldn't seethe pavement or road here until March.........

It does seem a big jump in mileage Loula.........................no doubt it could be done but it doesn't leave much time if everything did not go to plan training wise.If anyone can do it Loula I think its you..you arfe one determined running lady.

I haven't done a 23 min 5k it was 23.47 last Oct but yep I am chasing that time for definite and hopefully by the end of this year.

I have signed up for the Edinburgh Marathon in May 2012 so that will be my big race of next year and the challenge for me is to get sub4.............thats goona keep me on my toes training for that time.

It is tempting though to go for  a race thats just that wee bit more than a marathon...................but then i think of when i saw the marahon finish line and thought thank god...................not sure if I couldve went any further. LOL............suppose though you have the distance in your head and if you know you've got to go just that 8k more then you will mmmmmmmmmmmm  Maybe But not in the winter would need to be a spring/summer/autum one for me..................

How are the lovely nails??????? Was having a wee smile to myself picturing you both with your facepacs on in the garden

Good Moooooooooooooooorning!!!!!!

It's Friiiiidaaaaaay

Its been very quiet on here of late.

Loula - Mum is fine-she was in hopsital for a wee op but all is well for the time being. Thanks. Yeah it is weird how different run days can feel. The important thing is not to stress about it .LOL Yesterday It was a combination of too much vino the night before and the fact that my menstrual cycle is all over the place at the moment. Don't know if I'm coming or going with them LOL (sorry guys prob too much info for you but the ladies will understand)

DJ - Glad your leg is on the mend and that you'll be fine to meet this mad lot in September.

Been to gym this morning for weights etc and hope to go to parkrun tomorrow.

Hellooooooooooooo to everyone and hope to hear from you all soon.

Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Well I got out for my 5.5 mile run this morning before the heavy rain came on. Didn't feel likea good run today at all...........................maybe cos of the wine i had last night....................norty me.....................My pace was all over the place but garmin reported I ran much the same as last week but it just felt harder today.... That will teach me for havinga few vinos too many........

Off to pick me mum up from hospital in a bit and will try and check in later.
