cheers fellas. in all honesty, i had lost my mojo for running so the patient approach is means I'm actually enjoying lacing up the trainers.

Nice plan Dachs and a sound strategy. Definitely get involved in Highgate if it fits (which it appears to). 

Matt - there is an argument that you can do both. I set both my 10k and HM PB's in marathon training

Welcome Andrew. The strength of this thread is in it’s experience across a whole spectrum of distances so don’t be afraid to ask for advice. 

Cheers SS. Happy to report I’m quite a long way down the road to recovery now, with my target being VMLM15.

For the past few months I’ve been running to HR and honestly think it’s helped me stay injury free as I’ve built back up. I haven’t done any specific speedwork but this week will be my 3rd week @ c.50 miles which includes a weekly hills session, a threshold session and 90 min long run.

Aim is to be comfortably running 55 miles per week by the time I start my mara programme on 05 Jan. So yeah, I’m happy with progress and am just being patient and thinking long term.

Jonas - were you the Tunbridge guy I ran into at the Highgate 10000m? (as I couldn't see because of the rain!!)


ha... yes that was me. I'm assuming you're in the red and black just over my shoulder. Photo must have been taken moments before you left me for dust!

I saw some Tunbridge Wells Harriers at the start (I know Mark Taylor so was checking shirts and faces), is that your bunch?


Yep, that's my bunch. I don't think Mark ran - he's got a lot on his plate this time of year as the Race Director for the Tunbridge Wells Half Marathon

Dachs - isn't there a saying 'big results require big ambitions'? anything is possible!

Dean - that's the one. multiplied by 52 (ish)*

Excellent running from the LADs. 32:XX is serious shit. What next for you Dachs? Having nailed the 5k, 10k and HM time that only leaves the big one. Have you applied? 

Come on SS, keen to know how your race went too.

Well done Bus considering your recent injury woes. 

Top work on the 80% wava PMJ. Spotted you in some of our club photos of the start line. M50 category won by our club chairman in 35.14. he's flying at the moment.

Congrats to Dean on the Galaxy. Think i'd be doing a Bus like retch after that!

Eyewatering sessions Dachs & Matt  Agree with everyone else. You're both in fine form and are due to big scores on the doors. In case i don't pop in here before, best of British to you lads.

Great to see SS & Ric back in the saddle too. Congrats on the county vest SS.

Awesome run Rob! Actually, epic is more apt. Proper class.

Great run from Simon too on the country. I'd love that time on the flat right now!

Bus & Scott - i hope you're both mending well. Same to SG as I know you had a fall and got some bruises.

as for me, not much to report. plodding along, building mileage and adding some faster paces. not much else to report but glad to see most of the thread are running really well!
