Moraghan Training - Stevie G

I spoke to Chris afterwards. He told me he let the other guy win because he had said that he wanted to maintain his 100% win record at Black park. 

Moraghan Training - Stevie G

Last year Datchet strugglled to get people turning out for some of the later races. Even I ended up scoring in the Bracknell event. It was so poor that only 2 ladies turned for the final one at TVT. This year we have some new fast runners, inparticular our new ladies superstar Jill Collett who joined in October and has been smashing club records everytime she enters a race (17:45 at Black Park parkrun isn't too shabby).  So I think there are high hopes of maintaining the standard for the whole season.

I have a couple of Asaklitt clip on lights, from Clas Ohlson. Only 32g and £4.99 each. They clip onto clothing and provide plenty of light for my needs, but I never run anywhere too dark.

Talkback: Why bother with clocks on race courses?

And don't get me started about the use of American spellings.

I think that this article is another example of the lazy journalism that often appears in the UK edition of Runners World. I'm sure you know the kind of thing I'm talking about, where the article first appears in the US version and gets lifted wholesale to be printed over here, without researching its relevance. They might have clocks at every mile in US races, but I've never heard of or seen such a thing over here.

The other thing that bugs me about such articles is that they are often too lazy to take into account cultural differences between us. for example keeping temperatures in farenheit instead of celcius.

After checking the website I see that the article first appeared on there 3 days ago.



Talkback: 48 runners disqualified from 10K for wearing headphones

 If I wanted petty rules, I'd take up golf!

Any sport is a set of rules and you have to comply with them otherwise what's the point in doing that sport. I don't like the rolling maul in rugby, which I consider to be legalised obstruction, but until the rule changes it just has to be accepted as a condition of playing. Similarly with headphones, if it's a rule in a race you just have to accept it. Disqualification is just a consequence of ignoring the rules wether you like it (the rule) or not..

Edinburgh Marathon

I would certainly avoid taking the event buses. They are overpriced and there is a long walk from the finish to the bus pick up point, which is often chaotic. Best to stick to using the local bus service. The Nos 26 and 44 are the services you need. They can both be taken from the start at London Road to the finish at Musselburgh. A day pass is £4. An alternative return from Musselburgh is to hop on the cheeky First Bus Service buses that wait outside the finish park exit (not official and not advertised). They wait outside the park, across the road and to the left and it's only £1 to return to the start in London Road.

I always concentrate on my breathing during a run as it helps me get into a rhythm and focused on being in the moment. If you are having problems then you might like try these tips.

Firstly, try out different combinations of breaths in and out. I find in for 2 and out for 2 works for me. You might try 3/3, 2/3, 3/2, 4/4 etc. Experimenting with different combinations to see which works best.

Secondly, being tense in the shoulders can prevent you from breathing in properly. Relaxing the shoulders by pushing them down (rather than being up around your ears) allows for taking a deeper breath.


Hope this helps.

The more I read about this, I get the feeling that the council just don't want the parkrun in their park.

Totally agree with this point
