  • Should also mention Sabino Rinaldi (61840) too for his 63 minute back half. (Again, taken from a post on FB sub 3 forum).
  • Michele Perkins (44921) ran a blinder of a middle section. 14k in 15 mins. Sign her up! (Taken from FB Sub 3 forum).
  • And not event a mention of the half hairy ninja! Great run mate. Feels good to get that sub 2.40 monkey off your back doesn't it. Sorry I wasn't around with the colas at the end this year, but glad someone else stood in for me. Maybe you're just a…
  • Just ducking in and great to see some lovely race results from SeeMan, Scott, Bus and especially Lit - lovely to see you yesterday and bigger times to come from you with such strong training partners! As most have seen, good day out for me yesterd…
  • Just noticed that Dachs. I can assure you MP is not 5.45. Neither is it 5.55 which that 10km averaged. 6.05s all the way
  • live and learn indeed Bus. The 'learn' being next time you get taken by someone in footie shorts, slide tackle that mother fecker to the ground  Nice long run SS. Conditions sound atrocious! Big mileage though - same as me for the past couple of w…
  • Bus - my usual fair the day before any race day is 30 mins with 6-8 x 80m strides at the end at race pace and then about 5 mins at race pace towards the end of my race day warm up. that's usually enough to get the legs loosened off and in the right …
  • Yep, this will be our 7th consecutive year. Funnily enough though, I've only ever raced it once - the first year we did it. Course is fast but pretty dull besides the Olympic Stadium finish. weather is usually perfect for racing too
  • Some lovely Easter running peeps. Great time PP - proper 'monstering', congrats on the PB AG and decent PR win and racing Simon, Bus & SS. Sounds lovely up there Bus and you're clearly in your element. Nice long run too SG with all the juggli…
  • Dachs wrote (see) of course, if we did have a bouncy castle, Bus would either be injured on it, or it would be deflated by the jaws of the dog that is chasing him hahahahahahahaha
  • Dachs - I can confirm it was Beard Assisted. SG - Agree with Bus. I'd say the profile is pretty much bang on to Wokingham. And being a bit later in the year, weather is usually considerably better than it was yesterday. Dean - can't blame marath…
  • Yes youre right SG - 74.45 is PB so pleased to be 30 secs or so away. It's exactly where i hoped to be 4 weeks before London. And most on here know my training through either Strava or Garmin! Paddock Wood is a bit marmite. At least for those from…
  • Actually, the forecast heavy rain managed to stay away. At times the sun even shone through the light rain. But the wind was considerable for the last 3 miles and straight in the face too. Target was to run 5.45 pace. Finished 13th in 1.15.19 so 5…
  • oh, i managed some 600s too the other night at the end of my progressive marathon session. 20mins MP @ 5.55m/m (meant to be 6:05 so a bit too quick), 12 mins @ 5:52m/m, 6 mins @ 5:42m/m, then a 1200 in 3mins 59s and 2x 600m where i managed 1:50 an…
  • Balancing life, new job and something akin to marathon training means I have little time for anything else like posting on forums but such great performances today by so many warranted a paragraph. Good shit peeps
  • Here's hoping it works out for you AG. Apologies Simon - somehow missed your post! Tasty time indeed, lumpy course or not
  • So average weekly mileage nearly double and you're 10lbs lighter than previous best year? Those 2 factors alone should see you do well in theory Ric
  • Bus - back in your element! XC, shed loads of elevation and beer! have a good holiday PMJ - Sidcup will be my first race since June after not being able to do Wokingham. Kent champs as you say so the Harriers will be out in force so a good day out…
  • Great result Rob. Looking at your Strava splits, looks a well paced race right to the end. Top stuff Good 'first finishing' at Parkrun Matt. I remember doing 16.33 at a Parkrun with SG and then doing a 30 min threshold session straight afterwards…
  • Nice one AG. I too got offered a job yesterday after being made redundant at start of December. Negotiating terms and wondering how I'm gonna fit marathon training in with commuting back to London (no shower in the office grrrrr!) Good luck to al…
  • After missing Wokey I've put in for Sidcup 10 on 8th March. I haven't ran one since Maidenhead in 2009 ish I guess. SG was there I think. I ran about 64 mins so it needs seriously addressing. Did a Marigold / BAC session today on the track: 24 mi…
  • Nah, not P&D for me. Self coached now and doing my own ting! Funnily enough though, I see both the senior male and female winners at Wokey today were from my old coaching group
  • Top running across the board and it seems everyone had a great day out with lots of PBs or category wins - Jock winning V45, Rob (who's in the blue vest in that pic above) getting a big PB, his brother having a decent outing in 70 mins... Appears I …
  • Unfortunately I'm pulling the plug on Wokingham too. The plan was to have a good solid week of marathon training last week and taper down this but instead last week crashed with sickness and being bed bound. Piecing together some good runs this we…
  • Think I've lost a few lbs this week thanks to this feckin chesty cough and cold. I must be coughing up a LB of mucus a day at least. Wokingham looking unlikely now as the plan was to go and spank it as a gauge of fitness. I hate the body ache…
  • Great stuff Scott, Matt & Rob. In reply Scott, I always planned to do as many XC races as possible this year. Problem is that my wife works 4 to 5 weekend night shifts a month which means I'm on daddy duty all day whilst she sleeps. And yep …
  • Good luck to all racing today. Gutted not to be at the Southerns XC but on Daddy duty instead. Have actually picked up a chesty cough so prob not a good idea to run it even if I could.
  • id forgot you could look up runners and predicted times. looks like I'm down for 1:15. I'm guessing this was from last year. I'd be happy to be in the 1:16 - 1:17 mixer. SG - 5.45 is threshold for me. i'm not sure i could hold that pace for a HM a…
  • Great report Ric. certainly deserves it's description of epic! What's next for you? Tough Mudder? Mighty Deerstalker? One of the Brutal races?  Nice threshold run CC. Great consistency. Did you use your headtorch? Prob best to keep quiet if so H…
  • A bit of rain here today and bloody cold but no snow thankfully. One of the 'features' of Tunbridge Wells are the brick pavements. Whilst they look very nice, they're a complete death trap in the cold - slippy as a ice rink. Nearly arse over tit a c…
