Lurker, does that mean it is pub time
Spence - actually yes it is, every week!
Seems the devisor of the RW Ultimate schedule is in the RoadKill school of thinking - not sure how I will fit that into the BVH club nite!
Eh? Oh, yeah - Monday rest days. Makes sense if you do lots of races on Sundays (to me, anyway).
You should be able to shift the schedule, or parts of it, along by one day, or just swap days around - it's not cast in stone.
It's rather harder to fit it around a load of other races of varying lengths. In my case at least a 5k, a 10k, a 7M and a full mara, with probably another two 10ks and possibly a 5M... flexibility is, as in so many things, key!
Lurker - i doubt it....i think its good to have a few close links with a few clubs...networkiung and all that!
Our race went well..even i managed it, although I did stop shortly before the end and walked back with the lead female as she sprained he ankle and was in floods of tears (she was only a junior too!) seemed to be the right thing to do.
I did contemplate the pitchcroft thing (as i am from worcester) but having done it once before know how teious it is!

mondays are for recovery runs if you have raced
Don't believe in recovery running. Now recovery sitting on my backside - that works for me!
And what's the point of wasting a club night on a recovery run? Ah well, each to their own!
Nick you're so right about the Pitchcroft race being tedious...I've done it 3 times now so thats 9 times I've run round that sodding course!
I was 90 seconds off a PB so was most annoyed and threw all my toys out of the pram. Felt better after a Subway and some Fanta though
OK folks - your input please!
Coventry Autumnal 5 on Fri 4th Sep or Lichfield 10k on Sun 6th?
The Friday race would slot into the training schedule better, allowing a LSR on the Sunday, but my running buddy has already entered Lichfield. What do you think? I don't feel 'both' is an option, before anyone jumps in with that suggestion!
Rk thats a tough one - but am afraid if it were me I would be selfish and go with the Friday so I could stick to my training plan- but I'm a stickler for plans so depends on your flexibility really.
covi keep saying what a nice course it is - you will fly
plus i will probably be there
Lurker - I don't know much about our juniors - I think some are pretty serious T&F types, but I imagine they cater for all. I know they meet Tues & I think Thurs. I'll ask for a contact if you like.
Good idea re parkrun, though I'm not sure I personally would want to do too many 5k races - the Rowheath series is enough for me. I certainly wouldn't be committing to too many Saturdays as I have a life...
I'm beginning to lean towards Coventry over Lichfield...
thanks R-K, that would be great
Lurker - you should have RWmail... (I don't think Dave wants his number made too public)
therre are loads of pictures on the BvH site of the BRAC5k
Calling any ladies out there (there must be one or two).
Fancy a night out with a difference?
No, it's not a chat up line - just wondered if any of you might be interested in a new event on the calendar. OK, it's not a run, it's a walk, but I figure I can get away with posting it on here as it is for charidee, after all. It's the Midnight Walk, in aid of Acorns Children's Hospice. It's on Saturday night 19th September through the city centre, starting and finishing at Millennium Point and taking in the Bullring, Centenary Square, the Jewellery Quarter and the Town Hall. Approximately 10km.
It's on one of those rare weekends when I'm not racing, so I've volunteered to marshall.
