Runners World Paced Run - Richmond Park

Posted: 23/02/2003 at 15:14
First off a big thank you to Denise, the 4.30 group pacer.

Managed to keep up until THAT hill at the end of the first lap when I wimped out and walked. Used the down hill to try to catch up with the group and tagged onto the back shortly after Kingston gate. Felt OK until about halfway between Roehampton and Sheen gates when I ran out of oomph and had to slow quite considerably. Think the problem was I overheated - should've worn my shorts.

Made it round to the end with a few walk breaks but did manage to run, or at least not walk, up THAT hill to finish. My watch said 2.24 which means I still made it round inside the target pace time for the 14.5 miles. The main group must've been well inside which could also explain why I dropped back.

Had a brief chat with Jez before the off and ran most of the first lap with Crazy , and Gary (I think) plus on and off with Josie. Annajo and Slippery were recovering at the top to THAT hill when I got to the end.

All in all a good run but hard work though I'm glad I did it. Am I really on track for a sub 4.30? Definitely not on gun time so wont be joining the pacers on 13/4 but might just scrape in on chip time if I have a good day.

Registration query

Not had a club place personally but if your cheque's cashed you're in. I wouldn't expect to hear anything till they send out all the registration packs come out mid March or so.

Shell - think I read somewhere that nausea at the end of a race is down to prolonged exertion - can't remember any more detail than that. It's cerainly not uncommon to see the professionals chucking up at the end of, or even during, a hard race.

So, to answer your question, don't run so fast!

training session saturday 22 feb

Evening all. Some serious running going on today - well done everybody.

Nowt for me today except a leisurely 1.5hr stroll with the dogs through some woodland enjoying the lovely spring-like weather.

RW paced run for me tomorrow will hopefully give an indication on how FLM training is going.

Update on the 'Unofficial Anthem' (URWFRC forum). Its now about to about 20 verses and I'm sure will continue to grow.

Definitely worth checking out the thread, particularly if you need cheering up.

Runner's World 15-Mile Training Run, Richmond Park

It's a training run not a race therefore no need for numbers. I think registration is required in an effort to control the numbers of runners taking part and keep the various groups to a manageable size.

Once there, all you need to do is find your pacer and stick with him/her.
