haven't missed that many club sessions!! and some of us do a Thursday evening!! The training is going ok, plan is being "adapted" over the hols, did 10.5 along the canal on Monday, but when I came home my ankle swelled up, which is why I didn't come to club last night........ I'm up to 14 miles , so long runs are venturing into new territory now!!

oh happy new year to you all have a good one!!!!!!!!!!
Hi Lurker, hope you're having a great new year.
I didnt make it either, although I did not plan to do the series this year anyway, with limited weekends I decided to do the cross country league stuff instead.
I might be at the one in March, the Feb race I shall be on hol in the hot sunshine somewhere
Noticed on the Park Run website that a new weekly 5 km run is beginning in the War Memorial Park in Coventry on Saturday 6th February 2010.
It'll be held every Saturday morning at 9.00 am.
Coventry Park Run
There is a new one in Newport (near Telford) on the 28th March.
Which looks quite good for future years (Have a race the day before).
Same people who organise Wheaton Aston 10K, so organisation should be top notch.
Hi Chris, Lurker, Yeti et al,
Seems a bit quiet here of late...
I'm going up to the XC Nationals on Saturday, just to watch though, as I have a 10-miler the following day in East Yorks. I'll miss the next Centurion GP 5 as I'm taking part in the B'ham Uni Carbo/Gel study thing in Cannon Hill Park. It's any two of three 10-milers on consecutive weekends, but as I'm doing the Kilomathon on March 14th it has to be the first and last for me. Still plan to do the last Centurion race though, Aprill10th.
As usual, racing nearly every weekend - what's everyone else up to?
No, I'm a Guinea Pig Human... hope to learn a bit about race-day fuelling.
I think people make too much fuss about the snow, it's OK most of the time. The XC at Leamington was, well, different! Made it hard work, even without Beacon Hill and 'the ditch'.
I don't really bother with the RR League, though I am signed up for the Two Castles 10k, which was included last year, if I remember correctly. I prefer to select my own races than be told!
I might be free to marshall on March 7th, if Centurions need any help?
I'll give all our local clubs a cheer at Leeds.
I notice Centurions don't have any entries at Leeds...
I think they're still looking for volunteers for the gel study - Human, Guinea Pig, whatever.
I have a knackered knee
did 16.7 yesterday furthest ever but after 14.5 my knee was really hurting & I had to walk/run, another visit to Simon !
Cracking race yesterday, but slowest 10-miler yet. Set off a bit slower than usual (intentionally, as I tend to go off too fast), then built up speed gradually. All going well until about half way, then a slight pull of my left quad slowed me right down. Still managed a bit of a sprint finish, but could barely walk after!
Look after that knee Spence - you'll be needing it! 10 weeks to go?
wombourne half guys?
what's it like?, i am thinking about it
R-K: I saw loads of runners with numbers on today round Cannon Hill, so stopped to ask a marshal and it turned out to be a Uni study, so I guess it's related to the one you're doing? Was a bit off-putting, doing my steady plod, with what felt like a race going on around me!
Hope everyone's well? I'm finally feeling like I could be getting back into this running malarkey with 10 miles in the bank today for the first time since Brum half in Oct.
Hi Yeti, yes every Saturday morning for 4 weeks (they added a 4th). You could have joined in! It's 5 laps of a 2-mile loop, but we had to ingest a carbo gel at 0, 2, 4 and 6 miles. They're testing tolerance to carbs in endurance athletes.
I'm doing the 4th rather than the 3rd now, so that I can run in the Mids Road Relays in Sutton Park on 20th March.
See you on the 27th then Chris.
Good luck at Silverstone, I'm doing the Kilomathon.
R-K, i will see you at the road relays
is the aldridge 10k a properly measured one?anyone know?
