Overdone it?

Actually I have raced Muddy and Bob over 5k.

Still coughing a bit now. Even though I think the cold is more or less over and the sore throat was gone yesterday.

Good luck Lou!

Bugger, good thing I don't care about WAVA, then! Mace - I race the xc as fast as I can; however, this isn't very fast (somewhere around MP) because of the terrain and stuff. Also the ones we have done so far have been very short (4k) so I don't really have much of a top speed and they are quite easy to recover from.

Oops, yes, sorry, was so excited by Pete's run and my macestalking that I forgot to say well done to Muddy for the PB and to Charlie for the comeback PB.

Haha! Obliterated is indeed the word. Re. timing, I notice St Andrews parkrun starts at 9:30. Perhaps this is because it's dark up north.

I am back from the cross country relays. The East District relays two weeks ago were hilly. The Nationals today were also really bloody windy. I ran the second leg for the B team and managed to gain a fair few places so don't mind being slower than at Peebles in less good conditions. No ill effects from the cold during the run, but I think all the deep breathing dislodged some mucus and afterwards I couldn't stop coughing for about an hour.

Excellent run, Pete. I think we can call that a 'power walk with 1x set of strides'.

That is because entries are not open yet so they've still got this year's results pages up. I was thinking of entering last year but didn't get round to it in time for various reasons - as far as I remember you had to e-mail some bloke and ask for the entry, rather than being able to fill in a form. Probably because it's more popular than some of the other Great Run events.

It has fast-paced club places; you have to e-mail and ask for one, linking to the evidence of your qualifying time. Can't remember what it is for men; if you click on the 'elite athletes' page and then scroll down past the actual elite criteria you should find it.

Can you train for a marathon on two runs a week

Posted: 24/10/2014 at 17:28

I trained 6 times a week for my last marathon and I didn't do it (3x30mins=) 90 mins faster than Lou.

I think: one individual prize and one team prize is enough. As Dean says, vet prizes are there so that people who don't run fast enough any more to be competitive for the open prizes can still compete. If they do run fast enough to win the open prizes, they don't need a prize for still being fast as a vet.

The strangest age group prize I've seen recently was when it was one individual prize per person, but as well as the usual vet categories, the race also awarded prizes for first male and female senior! As most of the fast seniors were likely to place in the overall top three, and many of the fast vets were faster than the fourth senior, the people winning those prizes ended up being well down the field.

I will cough up loads of disgusting phflegm at the top of the first hill.

Now I'll never find out whether or not he achieves his ambitious goals.
