Overdone it?

Charlie is racing Cardiff half at same time as me in a virtual HM smack down which might also be a silver cell smack down.

Madbee!!! Welcome back! Did you get your VIP car park pass? It looks hilariously forgeable.

What if, like me, you are not fast like an actual elite, but you have a 'VIP car park pass' which you've had to print out yourself on your office's colour printer? I have my race number for Chester and it is 17, which makes me feel special.

I don't actually have a car, but I've printed out the car park pass anyway.

 - so eventually you had to explain the joke so we got it! Sorry!

One definition of jogging is when you are moving at slower than 9.66 km per hour.  Let's make the maths easier and 

Was I the only one who thought this sentence was going to end with a conversion into minutes per mile?

I will make a note to ask you the same question next year as well.

Skinny - Surely it would have been easier just to answer rather than trawl back though over 2000 posts to fine the one from last year.  


 - easier is not always best. I had been looking for my race report from last year earlier in the week for my splits (particularly the uphill mile 4) so knew exactly where I was looking.

Rich - I think if the field is split between elite and the jogging masses then you're in the joggers with most of us on the thread including Lou I think.

I'm going for a 4 mile jog on Saturday with a few strides thrown in.

Best of luck Skinny in the GCR. What makes it "Great", BTW? Whereas the Cardiff Half is just "Lloyds Bank"?

Cardiff - red button.

Cumbrian Run is not part of the Great Run series and nor is it sponsored by Frosties.

It's just Great.

Hi Lit - posts from 2nd October 2015 - you really should read all my posts and commit them to memory like I do with yours.

Good stuff Pete.

Muddy I hadn't heard of the GR Local or maybe greatrun local but I do wonder why they are doing this.

Perhaps it doesn't have to be in a park but it has to be great?

Yep it's the independently Great Cumbrian Run - that is, a run called Great but not part of the Great Run series. It's a half marathon - I'm worried I'm over tapered now despite the fact that my 5 at lunch in a squall felt anything but bouncy.

I have had a whole hosts of targets but as the week progresses I feel more and more like just beating my quite soft PB will do.

Muddy - I guess from what you've said over the last few months the family has had a bit of turmoil so it will take you and mini Muddy a while to get used to the new arrangements first then maybe you will realise that in the new rhythm of life there are opportunities for running just like there were in the old different rhythm?

I presume your other week is child free so initially I would squeeze a big long run and a long MP run into that week plus other running so maybe hitting top level mileage for you with anything you get in the other week as a bonus and that might maintain you at a level for a while?

If you were slower like me he could ride his bike along beside you and turn into Jason Kenny when he grows up?

Tommy - think you need to check all your screws - one of them might be loose!

I love beer and I love running.

I love the fells and I love running.

I think the idea of combining the two might diminish your enjoyment of both but I can't imagine a marathon less enjoyable than the one I did so good luck! I guess if you are running 44 miles one week and 35 miles two weeks later then a marathon 4 weeks after that then by next June a marathon will be a doddle.

Anyhow I haven't talked about me for a few days - I haven't become really ill although my chest felt a bit heavy for a few days but that seems to have cleared up now so perhaps it was just a super shit run? Weather forecast looks good for Sunday. Running out of excuses!

Unfortunately it sounds like he failed to follow the 'keep running' advice.

Perhaps he misheard you say

'keep running for 2 miles until you feel queasy'

Do the HM DT - christenings are shit!

I have new paces from Sunday as well no doubt, as my time predicts a faster 5 and 10k time than I have. 

DT - I'm slightly puzzled by why you thought you could run sub 1:25 based on your 10k time, then ran 1:25:34, then from Sunday you are now predicted faster 5k and 10k times?
