VLM 2017 !!

Posted: 19/10/2016 at 20:14

I am in for the first time in the ballot though I did do a bad charity place at London 4.35 in 2010 and a very sweaty 4.08 in Edinburgh in 2012 when it was so hot most folk died on the course, since I have done a few halves and got better though in the last couple of years I have been injured off and on. So here goes lets try again, love to crack 4 hours and have done a 1.36 half last year. Age and legs against me but here goes. Wish me well!!

Tissington Trail Half Marathon - Saturday event

Anyone doing this October 2015? Looks a nice run thought the track is narrow in places and if the cyclists are still on it good be tricky, especially if wobbly kids are on it. Cycled down the other day and was surprised how busy it was.......

My #asics262 Journey to Paris: Sub 4 James

Evening all and all the best for the training James.........followed a couple of these over the last few years and after a rough year last year only managing a couple of races I am back on it and hoping to go sub four at York later in the year. Hi to Sam and any others who remember me. Got through boot camp in 2011 but failed on the vote.  Did a good half last year at 1.40 so feeling good for this year. Just doing 20 to thirty miles at the moment.

Just back from 5 miles with four at 7.30min miles and a slower jog home. Hate running in the dark with a head torch but no alternative where I live. All the best.

Good evening team.......thought I would pop in and say hi.........been a rather crazy few months for me with work.  Things settling now and getting back to running to keep sane. Got some plans for 2014 involving the elusive sub four in October at York and some shorter races too.

Running in the rain and mud seems to be a recurrent theme so far this year and the dark.

Good to see the old names still out there all the best to you all in 2014. Just back from a five in forty minutes so getting fit again. 

PS Porridge for me and I have hit something like a mental wall in both my marathons so maybe I should try steak!!! NOT
