    Jane - is that you doing faster BT runs already? I'm impressed. I'm still on the slow plod trying to keep my HR down!
    Have a good time in Amsterdam, no whaccy baccy Jane, won't help the running.
  • I dunno Shade, a well placed space cake and you could take off like a rocket. Mind you, knowing my luck i'd run off the wrong way or something.

    My other half was laughing at what the drug tests for runners must be like in Amsterdam.
    Don't think we're ever likely to be drug tested!
  • debbo my BT training range is between 115 and 125, I usually do under 120 most of my runs but I thought once a week I would do about 15 mins at the higher end. My problems re-HR is getting it higher not keeping it down!!

    I will be careful and not eat any cakes of any kind in Amsterdam.
  • hi never done a marathon bofre.i put 5 hrs on my predicted time on my flm entry form but i think i'll b sumwhere tween 4hrs30mins and 5hrs
  • Hi guys and gals room for a small one??

    in a similar boat I think applied for a ballot position and (hopefully) at the end of injury time.

    EP do you mind if I email you for that 4.45 plan?

    My cunning plan at the moment is to build up a base in the next 2 months or so similar to Janes description on first page as I hope this will help with a non occurence of injury??

  • ok 100!!
  • You have mail :-)
  • Cheers luvvie!

    Course you can Hippo. 3 miles is nothing to an ultra runner.

  • Hi folks!
    In theory I should be able to get near 5 hours, so if I hang around with you lot some extra speed might rub off on me.
    FLM times:
    2001 5:30 ish
    2003 5:26:36
    2004 5:24:57
    At present rate of improvement I'll hit sub 5 when I'm 71 so need to do something about it!
  • First 2 miles post injury today

    fingers crossed xx
  • My times 2002 - 5.15, 2003 - 5.25,
    2004 - 4.59.
    I reckon preparation was probably best in 2003. Not really worked it out.
