Beyond #asics262: life after Target 26.2 for sub-3:30 runner Malcolm

What is it about the 3.30 category? It always gets a good character to follow! Well done superman. Gutted for you Tigger but hey you've got a little bit further in the competition. Next year yeah? Looking forward to following the sub-3 guy, Thomas. He has a lot to take off his marathon time

Ok been lurking for a while but thought I would finally post. I have joined the strava group which is great to see how woeful my mileage is at the moment but it will improve over the coming weeks. Just hoping that the weather would improve! Sacked off yesterday due wind/hail/rain.....

Certainly looking very tense. Really hoping that Tigger and Superman progress through... Have been casting my votes. Just gutted I haven't been in the computer room to make the school kids do it too...

Seems I haven't posted on here for ages but have been out running. Foot all fine now so looking forward to Manchester training 18 and a half weeks to go....

Have entered a few races too

28th December - Clitheroe 10k (the line up for this looks very fast - 3 years ago a Brownlee turned up)
22nd Feb - North-west half
22nd March - Wilmslow half
19th April - Manchester marathon
4th July - Greater Manchester Swim (sneaking a swim in like Angela)

Glad to hear your foot is better Malcs. Chickadee hope you get good news next month and I echo everyone else's comments on your positive approach.

Did I see Jenf post a while back? Has she also joined Twitter?

Glad to hear things seem to be on the up for you Reiki. Must be a relief with the blood test results. Hope the biopsy results are clear too.

Have actually had a week getting near to 20 miles. Which is the first time I've done that in ages. Parkrun this morning went ok. Was hoping for a PB. However when I turned up I heard the words alternate course. So I am blaming my time on that however it 2 seconds faster than last week. Think I may have put too much pressure on myself as it felt a lot easier last week.

Angela how much are you going to charge for your coaching? Want some help to get under 3 hours. You'll have your work cut out!

Malcs are you an Asics262 institution now? Will you be at Bootcamp until the year they finish the competition? Did you get to have a goody bag too? Though you'll probably have enough of those Asics blue water bottles by now....

Seren glad you asked about fast females. I think it would be great to have a female in the under 3 category. I also think that after last years male heavy selection that RW should look at re-adjusting the gender balance.

Well done everyone yesterday. I remember waiting nervously 2 years ago for the tuesday email that sadly never arrived. Really hope that they don't have the vote counters like last year as it must have been very stressful for everyone! Hope all involved has a relaxing weekend and just think how lucky you are to get chosen for bootcamp. Fingers crossed for Tuesday!

Obviously that should have been tops not tips!

Moustachioz - don't worry about the 5k you'll be fine. Just hope that you're not on the track just after lunch!

I didn't get through but spent yesterday like Booktrunk willing my phone to ring. I had missed a call on Thursday at 5.30 but couldn't answer it as was at a checkout at the time but it must have been someone else. Oh well. I wish everyone who is going the bootcamp good luck. It's great having a day based about running and it is certainly better than work. I went two years ago and sat next to ShadyAdy and met Malcs, DS2, A.W. and briefly Tigger on a very busy train back to New Street. I remember JenF passing round flapjacks (not sure if they were performance enhancing or inhibiting) and also RRR's very pink socks! I will follow whoever is in sub-3 as I will aim to do this in Manchester... (or Chester in October if I don't)

Malcs - did they give you tips with your name on last year?

Ok so sometimes I just don't get running. I haven't run since last Saturday's parkrun. I've done less at the gym, had hardly any sleep all week and had a cold. Woke up feeling tired but still managed to get out and do the parkrun. And finished with a time of 19:37 which is my best since October. Maybe I just went into it with low expectations so just ran it relaxed but who knows! The mystery of running, eh?

Well done Tigger. Wish you all the best for it. You had better feature in the video again, don't think they did one last year as they couldn't find anyone to top your enthusiasm and RRR's pink socks.....

Haven't heard anything about Bootcamp so guess it's a no. Can't you pull a few strings for me Malcs? ????

Which parkrun are you doing tmrw Hans? Don't think I'll ever do Huddersfield as the kids I teach seem to make up a few of the top 10. Never be able to live it down! I'll just have to get fitter and turn up when I've upped my game! Sub 20 tomorrow hopefully but it is pizza tonight....
