  • Hi Doug I have followed your log almost from the beginning. Have finally got around to posting myself. I looked at it initially as I had collapsed a number of times also - fortunately turned out too be nothing more than Vagus Syconpe (i have low BP…
  • Just phoned the organiser, the 5km starts at 10.30am
  • YES - In around 1994. Was going to do it last year and this year but on hols. Very popular race, so get your entry in in good time. Quite fast course considering around Stroud. Only one slight hill along the A38. Overall a good half to do
  • I have not run it before, but it has a hell of a climb at the end apparently. Not sure what it is like before that. I live around the area, i can only imagine it is also undulating/hilly
  • Hi Just got an e-mail back from the organiers - IT IS CANCELLED THIS W/E.
  • When I spoke to the race organiser he said they were going to put it on the website, but probably not before tomorrow - another person maintains the website. I guess it is not always easily done. WhenI spoke to him he also said they did not ask for…
  • Have just spoken to race organiser. IT IS DEFINELTY OFF UNFORTUNATELY. The race course in underwater. He said he will have to go there tomorrow in his boat!!(bike)in case anybody does arrive. Re-scheduled for 15th Sept. if able to do it. Otherwise h…
  • I guess that means it is not going ahead. I havetried numerous numbers to try and get an answer. Not very good really
  • Does anybody know if the 10km is going ahead or not? Nothing on website to say either way. No answer from rase organiser.
  • Hi SG Are you after a number for the Malvern half.Not clear from your post? I have one spare. Drop me an e-mail. [email protected] if you do.
  • I ran stage 15 also, finished in 1hr20. Like you i have felt really tired this week. Did FLM this year, and although did not run for a week or so afterwards, did not feel like i have this week. Also saw guy near the finish being looked after by the …
  • I did it last year. It is quite undulating, so not a PB course. It also happened to be very humid last year also. Quite a small field, overall a nice event
  • Thanks for those explanations. In future i am only going to use the GPS in races as a guidetogether withtiming myself according to mile markers etc. It can be a bit misleading running by GPS only, as i found yesterday. My mileage splits were rather …
  • First post since FLM - 3.01(15s)Little disappointed with the time and weather. Also had to stop for a crap at around 19m. Was comfterably in 2.55 shape.Managed to fill one of St Johns sick bags at the finish. Always next year. Tewksbury half for me …

  • Hi Mike New to this thread and looking for a bit of advice. Have now done 4 Marathons in the last year or so as follows: Edinburgh 06 (very hot): 3.08 Cardiff 06: 2.59 New york 06 (3 weeks after Cardiff): 3.27 London 07: 3.01 Was aiming for 2.55 FL…
  • TR I bumped into a runner named Steve Brown in the local co-op last week. He is/was a Cheltenhma Harrier (2.19 marathon, 30min 10k, 14m 5k etc), run for Wales. Knows a bit about running anyway. Asked home what he use to do at his peak - 110-120 mil…
  • Thanks for the video MR, i starred in it a fair bit. I spoke to you up the hill (thought you had a torch on your head) and at the end. Really enjoyed the race, thanks to all the marshalls and organisers for a great run. Also thanks to RFJ for gettin…
  • D of T Still can't work out this bold buisness? Yes, saw it. In fact i am in it quite a bit. I was talking to the cameraman up that hill, he had a cap on with what i thought at the time was a lamp stuck on the top. The batteries must have been runni…
  • Forgot to mention. Did the Rhayader round the lakes 20 yesterday. Well worth doing next year if anybody interested. Between 4-6 miles was the longest hill i have ever run up. (9 mins/mile for thosse 2. Also straight into a strong head wind.. Once up…
  • I would have re-mortgaged my house on him doing sub-3 easily. Did a 21 miler a few weeks back with hime and he was really comfterable throughout. Maybe he was a bit ill or something. He's been banging out 70m/week for quite a while. I thought he wou…
  • I saw Ode's time earlier today. I dont know whether he would want me to put it on the forum? If you look on the Rome Marathon websiste you can see - I am really surprised with his time as i have done quite a few runs with him (20milers). He will be …
  • Dad of Two I did the Rhyader today also. 2.21, took it easy for the first half, picked it up second half. That climb from 4-6 miles was pretty mean, particularly with the headwind. Got blown home parts of second half though. Nice race, very scenic.…
  • Rome Marathons -Predictions for Ode Big day for Ode a week today, must be time to start some predictions. Im very confident he will go sub-3,if all goes well, will go well under. I reckon somewhere between 2.50 and 2.55: So I say 2.53. May see you…
  • Hi CR I have built up a good endurance base over the last months. Now looking to bulid up speed as you mentioned. When you mention we should now be looking to move from 'pure endurance to lactate t'hold training' how mant LT runs should i/we do per…
  • Mattyf: I would definetly go for the sub-3 for one and use the other to jog round and enjoy!! With limited marathon experience,I did Cardiff last year sub-3, folllowed by NY 3 weeks later. In hindsight went off too quick at NY,got to 19/20 miles an…
  • Gloucester 20m for me yesterday in the lashing rain and wind. Please with my time of 2.15 (4.5 quicker than last year)considering no taper, undulating course, 70m for week and conditions. GPS lost satellite at 14.7m. Anybody else have problems with …

  • Anyone like to give a bit of advice for increasing speed a bit between now and FLM. Already done 2.59 at Cardiff 06. Bulit up good endurance base of around 60 -70 miles for a while now. Plenty of long runs in the bank some with odeon. I think my mai…
  • E-mailed you ODE with results of Bourton 10km - 35m06 not bad eh!! Eased off towards the end aswell, didn't want to push it too much. Only joking - 38m06secs with mile splits as follows: 1.6.01 2.6.05 3.6.13 4.6.18 5.6.26 6.6.11 Speed is not my fo…
