Overdone it?

I could jump in with lots of first time marathon advice but you are a much better and more resilient runner than me so perhaps will have a completely different experience.

I will limit myself to 'if you are doing London don't be too ambitious at Hull if you don't feel you are properly trained'.

Hope life outside running picks up for you soon.

Cheers, Skinny

PS I'm doing a parkrun tomorrow which I think will probably be a lactate fest but would hope for sub 20. Just realised my PB was set when I was 44, over 3 years ago.

Seems canal-builders were like me in that they'd go miles out of their way to avoid hills.

Counter intuitively I had to run uphill for half a mile to get to the canal.

My boss has gone back to US which always feels like a big relief but she has just told me she is retiring next February which is sad because she's a pretty good, hardworking and fair boss if very demanding plus I like her as a person. Never mind, everything changes everything stays the same.

I was near Altham Pete - I stayed at the Dunkenhalgh Mercure Hotel. I wasn't running with a celebrity though, it was just me and some hissing geese who didn't want to get out of my way.

Even bra talk doesn't seem to have resulted in an increase in posts! Did you get one cup in each shop Lit or do you have particularly demanding size needs?

Don't fall over Tommy!

Hi everyone!

Muddy sounds like you've maybe got some stuff going on at home - my apologies for flippant remark. Enjoy your fish and chips.

Lou were you the club mate in McFlooze report?

I ran 10 miles along Leeds and Liverpool canal (it was scenic and very flat) at 5am on Tuesday morning so I could meet my bosses for breakfast at 7am (needless to say they had picked the time for breakfast the previous evening whilst I ground my teeth and calculated backwards as to what time I would need to get up to fit in 10 miles).

Woff today.


What is the one thing above all you think / worry about in relation to running?

1,2 and 10 are why I run, not sure in what order so 5 is top of my list because it affects my ability to do 1,2 and 10.

Muddy - pull your finger out, slacker! Early morning is where it's at before life gets in the way and it gets hot.

Enjoy your hols - Northumbria?

Well done McFlooze and I guess Lou has had a good run too which we'll hear about eventually.

Hi Mace and well done on winning prizes for being shit Lit and Velloo - I'm fucked if I'm going to waste my time looking to see how shit you actually were to win prizes if you don't deem it necessary to tell us though.

I had a nice cut back week (34 miles) but lots of cycling, bit of swimming and other upper body exercising as was at Center Parcs for 5 days.

Anyhow rounded the week off with a 14 with 10 at MPish which came in at 6:45 - if it had been 10 at 6:39 I would have substituted a HM race for my 16 with 12 at MP ish in 3 weeks time but wasn't to be so I'll stick with my plan.



Are you and "in" or an "out"?

Does that mean they have or haven't voted for Christmas?

(silly joke but the world is a bloody mess at the moment)

 Above updated for DT 10k which also improved his WAVA and leapfrogged Velloo moving her into the relegation zone.

I haven't updated for McF prizes as awaiting confirmation there were some.

I'm away on holiday next week then my bosses are over when I get back so any PB performances this week might not get updated for a bit.

Enjoy your running.

Cheers, Skinny

Yes true - reading McF description I just imagined three or four clubs involved (which I was debating if this was a wide enough entry) but I suppose that is about the number of clubs in most counties.

So, any actual prizes to be recorded?
