Is it highly likely when you get faster you'll migrate to racing flats?

Posted: Yesterday at 16:45

After lowering  my HM pb by about four and a half minutes last year I had (wrongly) been giving credit to, an extra run a week, cross training and a flat course  when infact, I should have been giving the kudos to the 'shoe effecct'

I had a leaflet through the door today from our Ukip candidate. He is the son of an immigrant, yet is anti immigration. It is an ideology that I find odd.  

Stung inside mouth by a bee (not dead yet)

Why is it that flying insects always make a beeline for your mouth when you are out runnning. I've lost track of the number of times I've swallowed a large bluebottle type fly and then spent 5 minutes standing by the side of the road retching. Last month one even flew into my ear. It was a bugger to dislodge and all I could hear was a constant buzzing.

I can't say wether or not the lighweight racing flats have made me any faster, but having switched to wearing them they certainly give me a phsycological boost on the start line.

More Sun journalists cleared. Baffled by the fact that the person accepting the bribe was found guilty, but the people paying the bribe were not guilty.

Last year 13 people took longer than 20 minutes. Presumably they ran faster in the first half and then faded. But you wouldn't enter planning to do that - who'd want to enter knowing they were likely to be last in 21:30?

I could be tempted. It would be an interesting experience knowing that you are under pressure not to finish last.

It's hard to beleieve that it has been a whole year since we were reading tales of derring do...and Samir leading the Reading Half marathon.


The forum needs another Team GB style thread to bring back some of its mojo.

I am not wound up about it Miffi, I was just wondering why 15 West had adopted the pro Netty opnion.

15 West, I think the no stated cut off time is a nonsense argument. If the race director sees someone out of their depth in comparison to the field, he is perfectly entitled to make a decision accordingly.
