Well done D2D! You've gotta be pleased with 21:30 & 1st lady
I got round Newcastle in the super slow time of 24:55, my only comfort is that everyones times were well down due to the 2.5 inches of snow on the ground! It was more like running cross country than a road race - not least because you couldnt distinguish the paths from the moor.
2nd lady too so not that unhappy
if you look at the results d2Dthey give you a age %.so you can compare yourselve..........your much higher than me but lower % than my son and OH and neither of them are very fast runners.middle of the pack I think of them as neither are natural runners........so you need to put some work in to raise the %.
just one point...........what is your focus for the next few months..is it a fast 5K time or half marathon or marathon time...........if you want to break records then you need to know what your main focus is.............training for one can help the other times but if you want to have a really good time in any of those races then you need to train towards that and not spend so much time on the other distances
Only you knows what you thinbk is most important over the next few months..............
the odd 5k races will help your marathon training probably D2D.and I'm sure you will get quicker............but maybe after the marathon you can then concentrate on really getting your 5K right down.
definitely carry on doing them as they are great fun and a chance to meet other runners...........
anyway i'm off the forum for a week so take care
Well done D2D
I admire you for stating a time and going for it

D2D would you like to have a bit of fun? My PB is 3:46 down from 3:57 targetting my training, following a proper schedule and listening to people who are more experienced than I am.I bet you £20 for a charity of your/my choice that on 25th April, my approach will show a bigger improvement in my time than your "inner runner" approach will to yours. No needle, no flouncing, just good natured competition, what about it?

Hang on Katy... I didn't bet you wouldn't go under 3:30, I bet that I will knock a bigger chunk off my pb than you will. I don't think either of us will go 3:30.
Well done today, a win's a win, you must be feeling good. I've only ever been 4th Lady.

Cue the entire RW forum community starting to call you "Katy", Katy.
Well done today
Oh all right. Being as you asked so nicely 'n' all.
You're having Basil Brush on your tea? Cruelty to foxes, shurely?
Well the last thing I would want to do is freak you out, man, but I actually think you put your name up yourself, perhaps when you were the Next Great Milestone? And if you post your races and times the way you do, you are making that information available to quite literally any person in the world with an internet connection
And you can hardly complain about people using your name when you put photos of yourself on here-not just running photos- and make it bloody obvious where you live and run.
I tried to go back and edit it out of courtesy but it's too late now.
Can I keep you calling you D2D? Katy doesn't sound right.
May I suggest that D2D and Mr Puffy define the exact terms of their bet? Is the winner going to be the person who takes the most minutes of their mara time or the one who makes the biggest percentage improvement?
edited - of course, if you current times are very similar it will be one and the same!
Are you a business systems analyst slugsta? Good call!
Best thing would be the biggest % improvement in WAVA.
I have met Mr P and lets just say D2D has a few years on him
