Vote for Knight Rider

Please vote for me (knight rider) in the PB category of the Asics Target 26.2 competition.

I have been a Club athlete for 8 years and have been lucky to steadily progress in the shorter races up to Half marathons. Two years go I took the plunge and stepped up to the marthon distance and managed 3.22.10 at the Virgin London Marathon in 2010. Since then I have been trying to get that elusive sub 3.15 time, but unfortunately with no luck. My PB's at shorter distance certainly suggest a better marathon time and I am hoping with the guidance of Steve, Sam, Sarah and the Asics & RW team I can achive my goal.

PB's this year as follows:

5k: 18.38
10k: 38.38
6 miles: 37.35
7 miles: 45.19
(I also ran a 1.25.50 half marathon in the run up to the Brighton marathon this year)

Any questions, please feel free to post them on here and I'll try and answer them.

Thanks.

  • Good luck mate, and as you are a regular contributor to the 3h15 thread over the past couple of years I do hope you get picked. I'd love to see you go crashing through that 3-15 barrier in style and what better way to do it than in Paris as part of this Asics 26.2 competition.

  • You're a regular so you got my vote. image
  • Voted.

    What Nam said... because you're a regular. image

  • Me too - same reason as above

  • Thanks for the votes peeps. If I 'm lucky to get picked I've got some ideas for the thread & Twitter to balance up the training with a bit of humour etc, but obvioulsy not to distract from the essence of this competition which is to achieve my (sub 3.15) goal.
  • I hope that you get a chance this year.always the bridesmaid never the bride.......still trying to assess the competition in your catergory........its a bit difficult at the moment as there is less than a total of25 previous posts from the 4 of them image
  • I'm not running in fancy dress as a bride if that's what you mean image, but if it gets your vote…
  • Totally agree and have voted for you accordingly.

    You are a regular, interesting and fun contributor to a number of threads on here and have been for a long time.  You therefore deserve this opportunity - Good luck!!

  • Off down the running Club now hoping to gets some more votes - oh, and do some training too!
  • I've voted for you.
  • If you're promsing humour, you've got my vote image

    Good luck KR - you deserve your chance after last year, bur more than anything, you deserve Sub 3:15image
  • Got my vote, dude
  • you got my vote too just hope i can get some as well lol
  • Thanks for the votes guys, really appreciated.

    I was going to change my name to a more seasonal one but thought it might confuse things a bit - maybe next week.

    Just back from the running Club, a bit thin on numbers tonight due to the races at the weekend , vut hopefully mnaged to drum up a bit more support. Steady 7 miles tonight at 7.24 pace, with a mixture of 8.xx to start with building up to some 6.3x min miles in the middle. To be honest there a few guys doing a half this Sunday so they were holding back a bit.

    14 miles for the week so far and hoping to get up to mid - lates 30 by the end of the week.

  • Well I have voted for you tooimage

    For no other reason that you have been around awhile have a god sense of humor image

    Normally I go for the best looking image

    Edited because of piss poor speling

  • Thanks for having your beer goggles on Tommy and voting for me.
    I'd like to balme my bad spelling on predictive text, but that would be well,  predictable.

    What were you going to edit your name to?  Sleigh Rider?  Nice session tonight!

    Did you hear the one about the dyslexic devil worshipper?  He sold his soul to Santa.

  • Nice to see a regular on the list, voted,good luck.

  • OK, your category is the only one I haven't voted for yet.  I hear that you are a regular but I don't think I have spoken to you much, so tell me more. *gets comfy on sofa with a pot of tea, and listens attentively*

    I did Knight Rider
    possunt quia posse videntur - we can because we know we can 
  • Wardi, Saint Michael Knight Rider was one idea, Silent Knight Rider another, but do like the Sleigh Rider!

    Hi SuperCaz, I'm normally found on the sub 3.15, Brighton & Chester marathon threads and tend to drop into interesting New discussion threads when I can think of something funny to say or even give advice where I can. I was on the Mundane thread for a while but it was too interesting!

    A few random facts about myself:
    Despite my height I used to be a county champion at Long Jump
    I was born in Belfast, but don't have an Irish accent, although when I sneeze it has an Irish ting to it!
    I mostly drink green tea & Jasime at work,
    The great marmite debate - don't touch the stuff
    I like fig rolls & ginger nuts and when I feel posh have the ones with chocolate on (ginger nuts not fig rolls).
    Although I do like dogs, I won't be posting any pictures of them

  • A bit quiet on here. Thanks to all those that have voted for me so far.

    If you are still undecided, you can ask me pretty much anything.

    Watched last Friday's episode of The Walking Dead (FX) last night, absolutely brilliant. Can't believe there is going to be a 6 week gap till the next set of the series?

  • As a Mundanie, not sure that I'd agree with your assessment of our thread. image

    Still, as the others, you get my vote because you've been around the block a bit on here and given before you've taken (assuming you'd win your category). 

    I know it's not supposed to be house rules, but still. . .

  • Kr - as mentioned on sub 3.15 thread you have another one "backing your arse" - as long as we get inside info and all the dirt on the inner workings of RW
  • Thanks Fraser, I'll do my best to report most things, although not sure about any dirt being uncovered from RW!

    Jeepers, will have to check back in the mundane thread to see what's going on.

  • Ten miles planned for Thursday night a new route for a change thanks to mapmyrun. I think once in a while it's good to try out new routes and discover parts of the city you live in that yo've never been through.
  • Day 3 of the voting process and I started off the day with the plank to start building my core work. Managed to hold it for count to 100 and will build up to a couple of sets. Interesting talk from Sarah at the Bootcamp day last week in Birmingham about the importance of core work and how it can help your running posture and thus enhance your running. I did use the plank in my last campagian but want to add in some more exercises to compliment the plank and further build up strength.

    If you are still undecided about who to vote for in the PB hunting section, please feel free to post any questions.

    Thanks

    Please vote for Knight Rider - PB Hunter
