Sorry, should have posted sooner: this place has now gone.


Karen, I have messaged you.

Abingdon Marathon 2014 - Number Swap

I've got a team mate who has a spare number. I'll send his contact details to the first direct message I get. I'm off on holiday on Wednesday so don't hang about.

Mr Boat, I was just suggesting that you could be lazy and you probably are in comparison to marrigold. Excuse my spelling. You realise you would have to be able to run like 1:08 to be classed as someone who could kick my arse over a half.

So please explain how I'm lazy because I can't run as quickly as Marigold. You can't run a HM as quickly as me and I certainly wouldn't accuse you of being lazy.

Dach: I did spot that post, thanks.

Samir: Me, Lazy, no. Over 3000 miles last year and although I'm getting on a bit now relative to you, I think I could probably still kick your arse over HM.

Now to catch up on last night's postings.....looks interesting on first skim!

Poole Festival of Running 10k

It'll fill up for sure...especially with the popularity of Poole Parkrun which attracts around 500/600 runners now.

Samir, Philip is correct. We share the same surname and running club but not the same genes unfortunately...not related in any way.

TR: I can't disagree with you on any of that. I'll keep on keeping on, won't mention marathons and maybe she won't notice as I ease the mileage up. Was worrying about targets and age a couple of weeks back but HR's efforts are inspiring; he definitely looks more relaxed about the whole thing than I do. Although, we both did say we'd be giving up marathon running whilst walking between the Mall and Horse Guards Parade on route the to RL.

RS78: Nice pics and that looks like a serious climb to me...interesting insight into fell running; thanks.

TR: Not planning an autumn marathon as I told the family I'd only do 1 this year and were away for 2 weeks in the middle of what would be my schedule. Plan is to keep the mileage up, do more local races and if when close to Abingdon and I'm in shape get a sneaky late entry. Just feel like last week was a massive kick in the b*lls; not even getting close to testing my fitness after the best build up I've ever had with no injuries or time out. Bit sulky I know but that's how I feel.

Had a great 6 mile recovery run tonight purely because my 15 year old lad phoned me at work to ask if he could come with me. He's done a couple of 6 milers by himself and was comfortable at 7.43m/m. He's hoping to go under 45 at the Poole 10K. 6 miles is a fair distance for his age I think.
