Overdone it?

Hi velloo - hope you're still fannying around on the internet.

I've looked at the results and 

1) Why did Lynn Henderson not win Gold? I'm guessing it is because the Medals are a race within a race that you need to pay extra to enter to be eligible.

2) Can we have a photo of the Gold Medal?

Hi Madbee and Velloo - welcome back!

Nice 8 second PB to nudge down another whole minute Velloo.

How many people run Masters HMs?

To date I've done 1435 miles so far this year so hopefully will be above 1500 by the end of the year which will be an average of about 30 miles per week which sounds about right even though I have ran two individual runs in excess of 30 miles this year.

Turkey Trot half marathon to come on Sunday, not sure if I'm racing it or pacing a club mate. Will see how I feel over the next couple of days I guess.

1500 miles Tommy? A third of those miles must be races??

very quick in and out...

Skinny old son! Looks like you've fulfilled your potential! Back training you and Lit simultaneously, I always felt you should be fairly well matched, but injury and things rucked things up for you. Good to see things have turned out well.

Muds, nice one too. Back on track. And can't beat a race placing!

Thanks - my final fling perhaps but I'm enjoying it - one last horrible time to sort out then I can relax and wait for my grand kids to tell them all about how once in a race I was only 4 minutes slower than Muddy!

3.7miles in 9:40mm on broken legs - calves haven't loosened up a bit either!

Another rest day tomorrow I fancy.

I have Sneyd pudding run Sunday. My last piece of the jigsaw for a clean sweep of pbs this year. 

10 miles with a PB of 64:21? Based on some of training times you've been posting you must fancy your chances. Definitely been a good year for you on the FIRST programme.

Interesting that you and me have both had a good year yet our training has been very different for the same distances. You've gone low mileage and hard, I've gone high mileage (for me) and easy.

In fact my average mileage for the year since start of April is only sitting at 35 miles a week so not that high either - just consistent with lots of long runs.

I think your perspective is all wrong but I concede defeat.

XC is not proper running*  

10th ranked female marathon runner in Scotland this year (11th last year) - can't be too many categories above you?

And guess who is number one ranked 34 year old female marathon runner in Scotland this year?

So amongst 34 year olds living in Scotland this year you are the most elite!**

*Obviously actually XC is proper running and it is road running that is not but let's not let the facts spoil it.

**Am I winning this debate yet?

Agree that man was inflating his athletic standing.

Don't agree that winner of Chester Marathon (and £1,250) and 45th ranked woman marathon runner in UK last year (currently 57th this year) is 'far from elite'.

Not elite maybe but not 'far from elite'. I think you would fall into the category 'awesome club runner' (which is the one below elite).

Sounds like better news Rich.

Lit I've just read your post on another thread - as the Chester Marathon winner can you really get away with calling yourself 'far from elite' any more? Did you not start on the elite start?
