  • A big congratulations to PhilPub for winning Wissey and in a course record. Best wishes for Berlin, I think a PB is on the way. I was there too acting as pacemaker for my daughter in her first HM, a sub 2 attempt. My son was also punting for a fi…
  • Well done to the Barcelona crew, JAP, Wardi and DanA. Especially impressed with Dan who I seem to remember took about a dozen attempts to go sub 3 so a sub 2.45 is really remarkable. Really impressed with Wardi too. My last outing was a 3.33 at…
  • Just popping in to say a big well done to Marigold. I hope you make a sackful of cash from your new found fame. Saw the TV coverage but sadly missed the post race interviews. I thought that the race on TV was awful. The only check point I could m…

  • Just popped in say a special well done to Jools A great example to us all of never giving up. Also a word for Wardi and Blisters, I ran 3.33 before I jacked it in after VLM 2011, however that doesn't mean you have to do the same. Not running at t…
  • Just popping in to say well done to jools both on the fund raising front and in the running. I hope the high mileage translates next year into a much deserved sub 3. Certainly 26 miles won't seem quite so far in future. Wardi not lost my mojo to tr…
  • Not been on for a bit as I've had trouble logging myself in. Clueless how I managed it today. Good to see Wardi up and operational and nailing the big mileage once more. I hope you crack the 3 next year, you deserve it as you're considerably more c…
  • Oh I forgot! Belated Happy Birthday to Wardi
  • So we'll have an old codger race-off at VLM then tigerrunner. Me, you, Wardi, Dull? Any others? Running Bear I'm now in semi retirement. I've started cramping in my LSR for the first time and now realise the long stuff has to go. Still not 100% cer…
  • Lost for words Matt. Really shocked and sorry to hear the news
  • I did my 18 miles y'day but skipped today to watch the rugby, do some gardening and play with the kids. I haven't spent enough time with them over the last few years and much as I've tried to coax then into running they haven't shown any interest in…
  • A great report Dan. Unlike others on here I have no desire whatsoever to do it myself as your report conveyed the enormity of the whole event, something I had never realised before. I have to agree with others though that you looked very well as yo…
  • UTMB (part2) So with weather reports for the region were looking bad, and the UTMB race start being postponed by 5 hours until 23:30, and with the course was being changed due to some parts being inaccessible with it being even longer (170km) with …
  • Massive good luck to Dan and a big well done to XPS and MT for their Humber Bridge outing. Massively impressed. Just got back from a week in Snowdonia. Never spotted CW but judging by his posting he cannot have been that far away from where we were…
  • Not been on for a bit and no I haven't been abducted by aliens. Just got back from a family holiday on the Gower in South Wales. How spooky that it turned out to be the thread choice for a holiday this year with MtR and Tmap going there next week…

  • I cycled up Ventoux with a bike hired from a lcoal railway station at Orange. I had a set of panniers on the back too. I went up the side that didn't have the memorial to Tommy Simpson. I don't know if that's the more difficult of the two ways up. …

  • Thanks for the link selbs. My back of fag packet calc, seemed to point to a sub 2.15 for him off his current track form. If marders can improve even more on his track speed then a sub 2.13 is very possible come Berlin. MtR as a fellow old fart who …

  • marders I've done some lurking and turned up these stats for 2011 for NZ athletics. You're still off the pace for 5,000m but well in the mix for running 10,000m upwards, although I did see that no marathon runners were selected for the last Olympics…

  • Tmap A really great report. I almost wish I'd been doing it myself. Nice to have something posted on here to do with long distance running rather than cycling. I'm mulling over crossing to orienteering myself. Looking forward to boring the pants of…

  • So let's remember, there is only one winner, the rest of us are crap, and sometime we choose to ignore this and take pride in the fact that although we are crap, there are others more crap then us and in the pile of crap assembled that day, we are a…

  • Very sad about George. I lurked him on Powerof10 and he did have a great running CV. Nice photo of him there too wearing his England vest. With ultra running being such a minority sport, such a high profile name dying due to their heart must affect…

  • DanA I winced when you posted about your mum, I just hope they've got the diagnosis wrong. No surprise your long run didn't go so well, I have tried similar long runs in the past when things haven't been going well for me but in such circumstances t…

  • For those that may be interested, the UK Deca Ironman started today and finishes on Sunday next week. A bit hot today, so I wouldn't fancy being out there myself. You can pick up live scores via this link. http://www.enduromanlive.com/ You may no…

  • SL I live in Enfield, just to the west of the town centre. I know pretty much all the area especially the country runs to the North West of the town. I'm at home at the moment, but I will try and make contact via email from work tomorrow. Let me kno…

  • No tickets for me too. Then again I didn't apply for any. I've never been a great fan of watching live sport, I prefer sitting at home in front of my flat screen telly with my lager close by in the fridge. For those that want dodgy stats, of nine d…

  • A massive snigger from me when RS posted "up the swans" shortly after the post by BEJ. It was not so long back that BEJ told us about being attacked not by a giant poodle, but by a very nasty swan on the Regents canal who he tried to strangle. One…

  • Happy birthday TR RS Sad news, but there are a lot worse ways to go than that. I'd be pretty happy to go with that score in those circumstances. Thought I'd just pop in to say I'm still operational, but struggling to get back to enjoying my runnin…

  • A truly sad day for any genuine sports fan Bin Laden was a big Arsenal fan, so I'm sure if he was still alive he'd be pretty sad (about Ted and Henry) as well. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/funny_old_game/1650069.stm Dull

  • http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1465910/pg1 I spotted the runaway horse at the wedding. Most of my family thought I was on drugs when I started talking about it. I enjoyed the wedding for celeb spotting. Beckham wearing his war med…
  • Great performance from JAP It's wonderful when you can track a thread member on the net through new technology. Shame it seems to have been binned for VLM11 in the UK. Just a chip in on the great heat debate. I love the stats but Dids and his avera…
  • The thread makes interesting reading. My own experience sounds a bit similar to kinaseboy. I'd eased of at 10 because I was ahead of plan and feared the 2nd half sun. I hit HW at 1.36 up for a GFA, but at that point things got gradually worse and b…
