Good for age

Thanks for the advice. I was worried that Virgin may have changed the way the good for age was handed out.

Its not that bad really, I`ve used the road on a bike after a knee op and always been ok. We use lots of caution runners signs and have marshals  at all junctions.

We`ve looked at trying to alter the route, the old road always as a hunt on Easter Monday.

We may have to drop the race soon but not before we have an alternative race in place.

Bampton to Tiverton first run in 1946, missed one year due to foot and mouth, takes place every Easter Monday.

Best moment.. taking nearly 15 mins off my pb, finishing in 3.14.32.

Most surprising.. the wall of noise at Cutty Sark.

Worst moment.. Mile 18, having one of those, "did I set off too quickly" feelings.

Most memorable.. The whole day, Thanks to the organisation.

My goal.. 3.20.. SMASHED IT!!


How to run properly and good running techniques?

Posted: 14/04/2012 at 16:15
Try to find a running club with a coach of level 3 or above, or as recently passed the Coaching in running and fitness course, running technique is high on the agenda on that course.

joined runnung club...lost mojo

Does your club have a qualified coach?

The coach should find out what your capable of and set you into groups of ability, this can be a problem with small clubs, I know from personnel experiance when I first joined my club, we all set off at 6 min/mile and after two weeks I ended up injured.

I totally agree with Jeepers, we have a couple of really quick runnrs up to 10k... but I doubt if they could complete a half marathon ( will do when they get a bit older) let alone sub 3.15 in a marathon.
