Shit !!!

EDIT : SG - fingers x'd on them tests. Hopefully they give you an answer that won't affect your running in the future.

he least impressive thing is definitely standing around for 2 minutes waiting for the start and then deciding your shoe lace needs tied just as you are called forward!


told ya, nothing gets past him 


Although that may just be the observational skill of a normal person. Whereas i wouldn't spot an elephant if it parked itself on the start line.

Just read on SG's thread that he's struggling a bit at the moment so good luck SG if you're looking in. And if you're not looking in.

RIght, hunted the video down That's some finish Dean, leaving the 2nd a dribbling mess in your wake You don't seem to be built like the typical beanpole quick runner either which is encouraging for an old fatty like me

Big - nothing gets past Skinny  Bloomin' quick though even if it's not sub-4 pace

Pete - it's been a long time, good to see you approaching pb territory

muddy - nice WIN

Big - hope you get sorted soon

Charlie - good racing and enjoyed the report. Mile 4 of a 10k is horrible, 5 feels like hell, 6 i wish i was in hell.

Skinny - nice progressive 4, i really must pick a plan for a 10 miler on 4/10 and HM on 18/10. I'm also contemplating a local HM on 6/9.

Longest run for months yesterday of 15M in 2:24 so about 9:30/M. This consisted of 2 laps of the Marshside 50 mile challenge ( which is actually 53 miles ) running with a clubmate who was doing said challenge. After a wet start, the sun came out and it was getting quite uncomfortable at 11am when i finished. Pleased to say he completed and i think i've been inspired enough and seen enough to want to do something similar one day

a couple of days ago i thought Big was out of the game and now he's back with a bang ( no McF, not that sort ) Great run and report

... and don't even have to extend my arm to gently ease her back out so close is she when trying to pull the move!


This sounded more erotic with each of the 6 times i read it. I think McF has brainwashed me.

 x-post Tommy, well done again, you certainly seem to have had a nice fitness boost and are in a purple patch. Good to see.

very saucy , McF

But the post race goodies were unfortunately nowhere near as interesting. A crappy medal and a bottle of water. 

Tommy - flying !!

DT - i think somebody has got it in for you. As i started reading your story, the words 'towel' and 'climbing' made me think of a case i read about once where a man went into A&E with a length of wooden broom handle stuck in his bum hole. This was protruding ever so slightly but not enough for him to get enough purchase on it to remove it. He told the nurses that he was having a bath and the window was open so he stood up and reached for the window, balancing on the sink, and then slipped and landed on the broom that was leaning against the sink. It then snapped ( remarkably cleanly and as if it had been sawn ) leaving it in the unfortunate position  .... HAHA, as if !!!

Then as we went down a kerb and onto a tarmac stretch I gritted my teeth and went past “O”.  I pushed to the next corner and through some trees and as we went through another gate I had a sneaky look back and could see I’d opened a bit of a gap so pushed again when I was out of sight.

Mile 5 = 5:50

Now it was starting to hurt quite a bit and by the time we’d got to the end of mile 5 the chimp was going crazy and reminding me about a couple of the failed sessions I’d had recently. I was determined not to look back any more and give “O” any hope of catching me but as we hit the 9k marker I had a brief opportunity but as I stole a glance I couldn’t make out if he was one of the 2 behind me. It turns out that he’d given up when I went past him and he finished about 2 minutes behind me but at this point I was sure he was one of those 2 on my tail.

At the next marshall I was getting desperate and asked how much further but she shrugged and I nearly cried. Legs are now packing up and ready to go home as an Orpington runner goes past and I know he’s a 2:46 at VMLM15, something I’m not used to in the latter stages and again the chimp screams at me to stop but I’m now convinced that “O” is waiting and ready to pounce.

Mile 6 = 6:04

Through some woods and I’m starting to close on Orpington again and just as I’m on the point of collapse he grinds to a halt and is walking. This looks such a sad sight and I’m thankful it’s not me and it’s like somebody has slapped me across the face to buck me up. Out of the trees and up a slope that feels like the north face of the Eiger,  round a bend and the finish is in sight. I’m still waiting for “O” and I can hear shouts behind me.

For the second time in a week as I near the finish line I get pipped …………. but almost kiss him when I see his Tonbridge vest.

37:52 ( 26 sec pb )

7th place

4th Vet

I’m really pleased with this run as I gave it absolutely everything and was shagged at the finish for a good while. I was in the mix  with some 2:46 VMLM’ers and mid 35 -mid 36 10k’ers, got max points for our club champs and a 26 second pb on a tough course. Glad I travelled
