That's pretty swift, Bob, well done.

I forgot to metion that i gained another year on my holiday as well as a few pounds.

Skinny - 37:47

SG - yeah, i did a 38:18 on a pan flat route last year (couldn't make that race this year)  and this year's 10k's have been MT around a park 37:52 ( mostly grass that needed a good cut ) and the one above. In my defence, i also had some stomach problems in the latest one so couldn't push myself too hard and coasted the final k.

I still can't see where Tommy says anything about a broken collarbone but nevertheless it's crap news ....

EDIT - sorry Bob, missed your post. All is now clear re Tommy

I'm confused, who's got a fractured collarbone ? Tommy ?

Apologies but i can't read back so well done to anyone who has been breaking pb's, i'm sure muddy must have had at least one in the last month

The briefest of read backs tells me that DT seems to be going well which is good to hear after he was seemingly getting a bit fed up with it all. And Lit has moved on from SG after a couple of very successful years. Obviously SG knows his onions and did a great job for Lit but i guess it's good to change things around and i hope you're enjoying the new training.

I've had a very busy few weeks before a couple of weeks internet-free holiday in Dorset. During that time i've been a bit CNBA and have dropped mileage quite a bit, although i've kept my long runs going. I don't feel particularly fit at the moment and am probably back to a million stones again so have abandoned any thoughts of doing my local HM in 10 days and will try to build to a 10 miler on 4th Oct ( a club champs race ) and then again for a local 10 miler in December as my normal benchmark for VMLM.

Oh, i did set a new 10k pb at the end of July. This was a memorial race for my cousin's son ( in support of the charity she runs in his name ) so it would have been nice to win it but not to be and i was 2nd to my team mate ( i'm up about 3-1 on recent head to heads  ) It was quite a tough course with some very steep ups and downs but i was hoping to be a bit quicker this summer and it hasn't happened. I'm hoping that with some consistent training/threshold work over the next few months i may be able to cash in on the marathon trainingand see that coming through.

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

I haven't weighed myself for 3 months but i'm absolutely, 100%, no doubt whatsoever, sure as eggs is eggs, certain that i won't have lost any pounds at all

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
