Seem to be getting slower, as time goes by

I've had good intentions of beating my 21:10 PB this year, but not managed it yet



(all ran @ Pontefract)

Yes, received one through the Post on Wednesday

who`s your running idol..??

Posted: 15/01/2014 at 00:14

Rob Jebb

For absolutely dominating the Three-Peaks Cyclo-Cross race (10 times winner!!) & winning the 'Three-Peaks Fell-Race' 4 (or is it 5?) times too

Alistair & Jonny Brownlee

For their fantastic performances in all 3 triathlon disciplines, their ability at fell-races
Jonnys sportsmanship, re; his time-penalty at the Olympics
If that had been a 'professiona' F**tballer, he'd have stood & argued with the marshall, the manager would have made excuses/said he was being picked on etc.....

Jonny just held his hands up & agreed he's made the mistake, thus the penalty
Top man!!!!



Co-incidentally, all 3 are members of Bingley Harriers

Alistairs 10K time was (if I remember) 27:30-ish????
Mo Farrars 10,000 time was 26:00????

Who's the better athlete??? (considering what Ali had done beforehand)

Called into the Hospice on my way to work (Pinderfields Hospital) last week, & there's no entry forms in reception as yet

Innov8 Mudclaw 265/300 vs Walsh Elite/Ultra

Mud-Claws here too (I wear 330's & 333's)
I had them on for the 'Auld Lang Syne' on Tuesday morning, & they were terrific
Not a slip on the serious downhills, (& we're talking 1 in 1 at points,, with several inches of mud)

Only issue to them, as stated above, is wear-rates on tarmac

'Auld Lang Syne'

Go on

Did anyone else have a go, perhaps as their first fell-race (after being talked into it, by a friend/club-mate)

Yes, I'll be there, as will a fair few from my Club (Ackworth Road-Runners)

Note to self check thread title spelling in future

Has anyone used the road-shoes from this companies??

I have a pair of the More Miles Cheviiots (first model) & wear them for training, but consider them too inflexble for racing - with their minimal ground 'conformability'

'Start Fitness' is the main agent, so it seems;

http://www.startfitness.co.uk/prodtype.asp?strParents=4587,4588&CAT_ID=4597&numRecordPosition=1


Then there's RunDirect., who sell them
I've bought clothing from their mobile shop before, & found it good stuff and well-priced (also where my 'Cheviots' came from)
However, as I need new road-shoes, I was wondering about theirs

http://www.rundirect.co.uk/  (the 'Pro-Strike')
I've e-mailed & asked them to bring some to the 'Auld Lang Syne' fell-race for me to look at
