Sticky88 - great to hear you back and into your running! Very well done on breaching the 40mpw barrier too
Sounds like training is going well for York. I can't believe it's only 7 weeks tomorrow! . Keep up the good work. I hope to be back on here more regularly once work settles and the school hols are over.
Mr P - hope you had/are having a great time in Greece!
Mc Hilly - you star, thanks for updating the race list. That's much easier adding your own so as Sarah has followed suit we can make that the standard procedure from now on.
How did your 30K go the other week?
Angela has done amazingly well. Hard work is definitely a key ingredient and I think it helps that she has a great understanding of how to train properly. However, I think it's her belief that has been the biggest factor. This is where many people hit a wall - they just don't believe it's possible for them to run further or faster. Angela sticks two fingers up to the word 'can't'
Good luck in your half tomorrow!
reikirabbit - sounds like you're still improving. How is the gait this week, still getting better I hope?
What did you think of the York course?
So glad you got to meet Sarah and Angela at the York ParkRun!
Stan - great to hear your return to running is going well. I'm sure that ParkRun time will start tumbling down once you get going. Did you do it today, if so how'd it go?
Have you recovered from dead sheep gate yet?
Sarah - wow, great TR24 report! I want to do it again right now!
Quite thankful the photo didn't come out, it didn't sound too flattering!
Gosh, Team 'Sangela' would be quite a force at TR24 next year. What's this about babies though? Were you talking about yourself or Angela?
Hope the ultra training is going well. How are you finding training for such a long distance? Are you running everything slow or mixing things up?
Feral Bob - good to hear that the training is going well. I hope it served you well at Cheddar. Looking forward to hearing how that went. Did you smash last year's time?
Hans C - wow, your buggy running is going immensely well! Maybe your body will adapt so much that the buggy will have to become a permanent fixture?
Sounds like an impressive bit of kit anyway!
Angela - great to see you back on here! Always impressed by your enthusiasm. Got me quite excited reading your post. I have no doubt that your shoot for the stars approach will get you to 3:19 and beyond. You have the determination and the ability so keep on doing what you're doing!
How are you feeling about Saltmarsh? Not long to go now. You've got Baccus in between too of course. Nothing like a busy schedule
Well done on your 23 miler and best of luck for your 30 today!
We did the Greenock Parkrun today - new PB for me 19:02, tantalisingly close to that sub 19. Easier course than Orpington mind. However, I haven't done much speed work since my 10K so I'm pretty damn pleased with that.
