  • Stevie G said: It's like the time Dean said some on this thread train too hard, and some not hard enough. I genuinely didn't know if i was in the "train too hard - for meagre results", or "don't train hard enough - to improve the meagre result…
  • Stevie G said: Dean - I was the one who said that!  Ric's post seems to be saying ignore the physio as he's trying to con him! i thought ric was taking the piss...and saying the same as us.  He just got deeeeeeep about it.  hence me …
  • Woooah!  that got deep quickly!  i agree with ric, why pay for advice and then not take it? or dont take the advice but you dont get to moan to the group if you continue to hurt   Either way hope it sorts it self out quickly
  • reg - never far away from drama...hope the collar bone heals quick Muddy - sorry to see the DNF but sometimes brains have to override balls.  too many would have carried on and caused damage but i feel like you made the smart choice.  there is alwa…
  • simon - sub 2.05 @ SAL ?   im possibly coming down for london marathon watching.  will see if i can arrange a meet up.  as i owe you a beer....probably. i did a reduced, relaxed session last night as im full of takeaways and sugar at the moment.   …
  • stevie Wh - great report and congrats on a well executed race.  
  • Reg Wand said: scales reckon I am 23.6% fat, . to give a benchmark, a ginsters cornish pasty is 30% fat.       
  • Stevie G said:  I can stop answering random lurkers mailing me "that Dean, he don't like you does he"    Brace yourself for more lurker comments regards the weather, i went out at lunch with a jacket, long & short sleave t s…
  • good relay simon, i hate the long legs there as you pass the jubilee stone and keep going for the out and back rather than the nice downhill to close. I also like the downhill, plus the noisy up hill sprint finish past the tents and support. Master…
  • Good miling pete.  Have you considered training a bit more specifically towards middle distance for a couple of months and see how fast that mile can be? Matt - volcanoes? Wtf? I consider running on the canal path hilly, that course would finish me…
  • the odd stretford open in trafford has a 5k
  • Stevie G said: Dean - have you done world indoors before? Do i remember one "worlds" in Australia that was just too optimistic to get to travel and cost? Or was that an outdoors one? Are these every one year or two? Europeans, same deal? Is t…
  • RicF said: Dean, this bit I've done myself to a fashion. like a sprinter in the blocks...all signs im ready and i want to get out fast.  When you consider the margins at the finish, it does make sense not to just start fast, but to react fast…
  • Simon Coombes 2 said: ., but looking at the times, going for the 3000m was the best option, really high standard. I think you would have gone better than you think.  as the race was spread out early and you would have had targets.  you…
  • simon, yep, the 20 zl mega kebab beat me too!  i didnt know what i was ordering i just kept saying yes to every question.  hence me getting chips inside the kebab too.    I agree about the ceremony was much better than the others where is was in som…
  • yep ric that was the plan.  the plan was simple, go out at 4.05 pace (65/66) per 400m.  get out in front and defend the lane.  i push on again at 600m to go to take the sprint out of some.  wind up the last 3 laps.  at the bell i had a lead (to be h…
  • next day was the 1500m semi final.  i feel tired and very grumpy.  i get 3hrs sleep.  im not exactly a ray of sunshine until i speak to my wife basically says to me "have you done all that training, all the sacrifices to throw it all away now with f…
  • man, i got a headache.  not one beer since xmas day then from 10.40am saturday i caught up 3 months worth in about 12 hours. world masters championships in poland - was flying in training and felt i could affect the medals if given a chance.   The …
  • Congrats on the England vest pete.well deserved. Sg I'm definitely not top don in the 800.  2 Spaniards have 1.56 and 1.58, the American has 1.59. All from the last month.  But it's a final, anything can happen and if I can get involved and spoil t…
  • Joe..96 mile week? That's almost a month's worth for me at the moment, and [email protected] is some going.  I think you will continue having a very good yr Jooligan. Tough course and after being knocked over before hand you got to be happy about how the rac…
  • Not read back, will.do when I get chance  but I qualified from my 800m semi final out in poland with a controlled run, will share the video when I get back to my apartment. Final is going to be brutal. 
  • the midlands 10000 champs is also at tipton...quite a varied standard too 
  • sorry just saw it was a track 10k not road!  will have a think
  • SG - i dont do much core work...i should but i am always tired from the sessions and recovering to do it regularly.  A down side of getting old and the sessions will always take precedent.  I would look at plyometics as a means of improving power/sp…
  • yep, lits sonnet was a timeless classic. Joe that tempo session looked strong, definitely a great sign of moving in the right direction. SG - wouldnt worry too much about losing a second ave in the wind.  it can happen.  i did a similar 200 sessio…
  • To be fair it was me who called him average not sg.   his pb was ranked 1141 that yr.  I would say in the whole scheme of things that's not that good a ranking.   But in fairness his parkrun times were decent.  But he did a lot of fitness for his bo…
  • Joe, Smairs thread was about beliefing (sp) he was destined to get in the GB team for Rio olympics.  Based on the fact he ran an unmeasured distance and knocked a few minutes off after some training.   He beliefed that the more you train the 2minute…
  • forgot that one ric, classic samir. whilst he was a figure of fun...i believe he was in on the joke and played upto it most of the time.  He seemed a decent chap.
  • scott was always better than samir.   both had troubles....one with his arse the other because he was an arse Simon, samirs thread was a golden age for this forum.  by far the greatest thread to ever grace these boards.  it had everything.  Pavem…
