Jimbob and Steve Duffy 2 - I would love to confer with you about training and strategy for Paris. Glad to see a nice little group forming up there!

Preferential POSSE!!!  I'll see how I get on in Tokyo on 28/2 before I can really lay down a target for the race. I've no tune up races and have being doing more volume than speed in my short training block as getting the endurance levels up has been the priority. I'm starting to cut back mileage this week and will be injecting a little more speed into everything. Hopefully I can gun for a reasonable time.

Great to have the company though. Make sure you two meet us at the Arc for the traditional thread photo.

New York Marathon GFA qualification

Posted: Yesterday at 12:20

Hi GB ... no prob, it was a V40 / 1.22 .... qualifying for V40 is sub 1.25 but it doesn't make any difference how far under you are (unlike Boston). Wokingham is a licenced race (shows on RunBritain/Pof10) - I've heard its a good one, will probably give it a go at some point.

Because you have only just applied I'd give them till Thursday of next week, and then follow up with an email directing them to your result - just in case they had trouble verifying. My friend applied 15 minutes after me and put in their time from Amsterdam Full marathon and got acceptance a few days later ..... I don't think it was because she did a full marathon to qualify .... probably just luck, and also, they may have all the results from all the international (AIMS) races stored in their DB. She met the criteria the same as you and me. The only thing that affects your application is the timing of when you applied, but given that the window is open for another 2 weeks, hopefully you have a good chance. Good luck

Ryan .... You've got the Eye of the tiger with your training this year. You'll be on fire come the spring time. VLM should be a cracker.

Dan nice consistent high mileage. Looking forward to you getting a cracking result. .... or are you fancy dressing it again? Blues Brother, Stormtrooper?...... what's the world record for a stormtrooper in a marathon? ..... by the way my pal got passed by (Vegas Elvis) you at one point and then made it his aim to beat you ..... The shame of it .... and not even his best era.

Yo Selbs .... yep got a bit of work on trying to get good results at the marathons. Tokyo is kind of my A race but I'm not expecting miracles off 8 weeks training. Btw yesterday I got accepted into New York marathon.

Just got back from 21 miler last big run .... 8 mile nice relaxed jaunt around London around 8 min miles. Felt comfortable all the way and pushed the pace slightly on the last couple of miles. Felt nice, a good session to round off a 60 mile week / 14;days on the trot where I went pit running.

Wtf! My predictive text was a bit weird there. "8 mile" = "a" and "pit" = "out".
