  • Hi-dee-hi campers! Sooooo much going on with this thread - great going everyone. Will take more time tomorrow, my non-running day, to go through it all. Just wanted to pop in and log my week's mileage and hope I'm in time to wish Harmander "Bon Vo…
  • Ha! JD1 - exactly the same as me... running well until 10.2 miles (according to Garmin) and then turning into that pig of a head wind and a long slow drag upwards to the finish! Still a really good time by you though - you said you were after about…
  • Afternoon peeps! Ahh - that's fab... really great, Cal. Huge congratulations!!! I think you're really reaping the rewards of your consistent, high mileage training. I'm so pleased for you! Village Bakery Wrexham HM for me today. Was lovely to se…
  • Howdy pardners! Thanks for the welcome back everyone Nice consistent running Andrew - and that was quite some  threshold pace, well done! Well done on cracking the double tonne JD1... good going! Congrats on the age group first at parkrun Cal …
  • Evenin' all! So much going on... too much to name check everyone but highlights include: Welcome back PompeyMatt and Steven - good to hear of the progress from both of you. Excellent race reports everyone. Special kudos to Cal and David for PB-ta…
  • James - hope the HM went well. Which one was it? Ha! Ian... guess what... I'm doing the Village Bakery HM too. See you there! I've also got High Legh 10K as a sharpener and Wilmslow HM two weeks before Manchester.
  • A busy week for you in November then Ian! Best of luck for Frankfurt as well... two marathons back-to-back is very doable. I did Boston and London last year - and survived to tell the tale Even if you're a bit ahead of me we could still stroll over…
  • Hellooooo... only me! So impressed with all the running going on in trying conditions - well done everyone. Take care of yourself, Cal - you don't want to miss out on your upcoming marathon due to injury! Nice shorts running Hobie! Hope you enjoy…
  • Well done Alan (and Mrs. Peacock)! Thanks for the reassurances bdm and Ian. What a coincidence with our hotels, Ian - it would definitely be nice to walk over to the Library steps with another Brit. I'm guessing we'll be in different pens and possi…
  • 'ello, 'ello, 'ello ... wots goin' on 'ere then!?  ... loads of running by the looks of it! Great going everyone! JD1 - yes, definitely have a try of various different sources of energy for longer runs above HM distance. Gels are one option (well…
  • Oh - fab time Ian... really well done! Congratulations! If you can do that on hills you should smash 3:10 round the streets of Sale and Alty! jkplatt - I'm not sure that's a particularly easy thing to do as there aren't really any tram stops close…
  • Cheers bdm! The Midtown Library bus will be my choice too as it's less than a mile walk from my hotel. I'm just an inveterate worrier and pre-planner... I have to do a dry run for everything, so event organiser-controlled transportation is a nightma…
  • Salut maintenant! A rest if you feel you need it is probably best, Cal... plus you've got soooo many miles in the bank already Totally take your point senidM - that's why I knew there was a chance I would look like a total nob... but, in my defen…
  • I've booked my hotel too - I'm staying about 2 miles south of the finish line in Chelsea (half way between the Flatiron Building and the Empire State Building)! Not booked flights yet as hubby has not definitively decided if he will come with me or…
  • Hi-dee-hi campers! Cheers on the comments re: NY, folks. I've decided that I will make pursuing the World Six Majors my one extravagance - I don't spend my money on anything else and hubby and I hardly ever go away for holidays so it's business cla…
  • I'm in... I'm in... I'm in... doo-doo-dooooo *happy dance*!!! See you in the Big Apple guys! An expensive Autumn for me this year with Chicago in October and NY in November.
  • 'ello, 'ello, 'ello - what's going 'ere then!? Fab- thanks Harmander. Hope your antipodean running plan comes together. JD1 - a 16 mile fell run would be a baptism of fire I heartily recommend considering something that would seem like a very s…
  • Wotcha peeps! Cheers David. Well done on going 100 up as well - great going! Hope your work *bobbins* sorts itself soon. When do you travel to Tokyo Harmander? I can't wait to hear your verdict on the race and see your six-star!!! Pleeeeeease will…
  • Ian - I've emailed based on your recommendation... let's see what they say TT - both Ian and I, apparently, did exactly what you're planning to do and the website crashed after about 10 mins or so! You also have to jump through a load of hoops an…
  • Bonsoir tout le monde! Fab running by all - too many to mention but especially welcome to see SM2 logging... glad to hear all eyelashes remain unsprained - hope no fingernails are aching Really well done to all our centurions (already!!! ) - Ca…
  • 'Ey oop me ducks! Just popping in to keep up to date - no running for me today, just Pilates but only a mat class as was too slow to get on the mixed equipment class tonight. Cal, Donnie, and MrM2 - those parkrun numbers are huge! My nearest is a …
  • Hey Ian! I've submitted my qualifying time too - I'm using my HM PB... not sure if that will be prejudicial or not. Would be great if we both managed to get in. You did better than I did. I had the same... logged in at exactly 5:00 pm. got so far a…
  • Howdy pardners! Ooofff - another busy few days for everyone, well done folks. Did you do a double in the end, Harmander? Hope all's well... unusual not to hear from you for a few days. Hehehe Adam - I'm all for the ridiculous level of precision! …
  • Hey, hey, hey  sports fans! LOL JD1 ... think I'd rather go entirely commando!!! Nice tempo pace there Andrew - with the final fast section fastest too. Well done Ah - that's a blow SM2. All the best to you - hope the tablets fix things. Pleas…
  • Howdy pardners! Nice running everyone. Cal's right up there in second place at the moment Harmander - it's good to see a lady giving you a run for your (and Dubai's) money this year. Cal - I ran at the other end of the day from you... just as dar…
  • Zoiks and gadzooks!!! As MrM2 says, this thread is, indeed, buzzing Nice mileage so far everyone! Quite a few of us aiming for marathons, I notice, which should help with the mileage. Great that you're doing Chester JD1 - that's my neck of the w…
  • Hi-dee-hi campers! Things really are proceeding apace on here - great going folks. Thanks for the belated wishes Harmander... I still have my cards up so it definitely counts Ah - your poor first time marathoner! That's quite a difference isn't i…
  • Rutherglenrunner - agree with Ian, it is really genuinely flat. There are a few little bridges that feel like a bit of a shock to the system when the change in gradient appears out of the blue but they're over in a flash (or a short stagger - depend…
  • Wotcha peeps! Just noticed I failed to wish everyone "Happy New Year" earlier. What a lovely crowd of mille milers we have this year. Great to see so many of the old crew and welcome to all the new comers Thanks for the birthday wishes Dubai, Ca…
  • Evenin' all! Good luck in Boston senidM - I believe there's a debate between Manchester and Boston (UK) as to which is the flattest (non-laps) marathon in the UK. What's your GFA target? Take it steady at the start, Steven, and push on a bit later…
