  • FTP - You continue to disappoint me: It's not the bad language or poor BB ettiquete - I shall attribute that to low intelligence,up bringing or both. What really disappoints me is that you have issued challenges and made claims that you can't subst…
  • FTP - You disappoint me on a number of levels; * I never said Suzy should run for 5 hours; you have confused her target time with my continued view that she should run 20 miles in training, which would not take 5 hours. Others on this thread are t…
  • FTP - or should we say Mr Angry? Care to compare British rankings for the marathon? no, thought not; keep hidding behind your pseduo name Where would one turn up for these 6 x1km sessions - I do like a challenge. I may talk shite, as you said abo…
  • Nice one Pammie. Am I correct in deducing that you ran 19 miles this time in training but not previously? If so, it demonstrates that you also benefited from spending longer on your feet and allowed your body to experience the longer distance and …
  • Evening gents/ ladies, Not been on for a while; nice to see the same old faces posting though. Not much to report at my end; I have been doing around 50 miles a week since the FLM and about to get my GFA letter sent for next year. Anyone doing th…
  • FTP - I am curious; have you ever run a marathon? Whilst you talk about physiological theory you don't seem to pay any regard to the mental demands of a marathon, which as  any marathon runner would know is a key constituent in achieving goals time…
  • BEJ - Sorry to hear that mate; really bad luck. I managed 2:51:59 so missed out on the sub 2:50. Was through halfway in 1:24:28 and running ok. I haven't looked at my splits - I just slowed marginally in each mile from 20, as I had 40 mins 20 secs …

  • Evening all, Some very impressive targets for the FLM; where are all the usual 2.59.XX predictions?? DoT/ Dan A - You are both planning the same as me - sub 2.50. I am also starting from green  - number 31013 ( I asked for a symetrical one). Dan A…

  • NtS - the treadmill challenge sounds great but I am committed to having a good go at the FLM so will reluctantly have to pass on it.  I agree with your comments on the conversion from HM to the full marathon...it's something to do with getting past…
  • Evening all, Not been on for a while and seriously impressed by the times being posted for the various HMs. I was feeling quite good about myself and looking for around 2.48 for FLM and not bothering with the HM warm up. I'm feeling a bit inadequat…
  • Afternoon All, I've been off the radar for a while - work etc. Been doing around 50 miles per week for the last 7 weeks and planning to start building up to 90 pw for the FLM. I've set myself a target of under 2:50. Pleased to see the usual susp…
  • Back from holiday and browsed through a few pages....looks like everyone is racing well at the moment. I can't remember them all but well done CRAB, PADAMS and NM2 some pretty spectacular improvements! CRAB  How does the Berlin course compare to Ca…
  • Supergirl Pam - It was me who spoke to you after the race - nice to have met you. I think the course on a wind free, overcast day is a nail on PB for anyone and I think the dedication of the organizing team has been fantastic, so will definately be…
  •   PUG - Gutted to hear about your injury - you must be climbing the walls! DN - I did run Mablethorpe and you were right; it is the World's windiest place!! I came 2nd in 2:53:04 and felt strong until the 23 mile marker when I sumultaneously caugh…
  • Wind forecast has moderated to 14 mph - it was at 21mph for Sunday. Fingers crossed that it drops to single digits!!
  • Scamlamb - Today's weather means nothing....check out Sunday's forecast; that's a disaster unless you like flying kites!!! I will be watching the forecast carefully over the next few days as I struggle to see the point in running in that sort of wi…
  • Afternoon - It seems a part time job is the only way to keep up to date with all the posts on this thread! Nothing much to report but don't want to be accused of being a bench warmer! My hip niggle lasted for only a couple of days so I have managed…
  • Thanks for the tips on the injury. I think I will take a couple of days rest and see where that gets me. NM2 - I may then follow your proposal!! JEJ, where are you staying in NYC? I am there from the 6th to the 9th. I have been running in Central P…
  • NM2, Gobi, TT and GR - Excellent running guys, especially on that course, which is not one I would target a PB on. NM2 - Your new target has to be sub 34 on a flat course, or there is still time to re-consider Mablethorpe marathon (16th Sept)!! Loo…
  • Scamlamb/ Wicked D - Thanks fellas. I appreciate it. Training progressing well; fingers crossed that there are no injuries and no wind/ excessive heat/ rain on the day. Sounds like something Calsberg might be able to fix...if they did marathons!
  • Wicked D - You seem to know the course well. Are there any hills worth speaking of and if so, at what point on the course?
  • You go away for a couple of weeks and everything has changed! (apart from Dull's sub 3) Great report Dull - does this mean you are now free to be part of a 3 man team for Mablethorpe?? You know the area and you have 8 weeks to recover!! Not much t…

  • Michael SAS - Sorry for the slow response. Yes, I have done a couple of 22 milers and 3 x 20 miles. I plan to continue them until 3 weeks before the race. I wouldn't delay, as you would need to be an exceptional runners to go sub 3 hours without a…
  • Michael SAS - I know the blowing up feeling well. I would start getting in the +20 mile runs asap, as they are the ones that really count. I did a lot more +20 runs on my last attempt and staved off the 'blow up' point to 23 miles! I am surprised t…
  • Dan A- Excellent report; I was feeling more exhausted with each paragraph. I can't decide if you are mad,bad or brave. Anyway, can I assume that you are interested in making up the 3rd place in a team of 3 for the Mablethorpe marathon - it's only 26…

  • coldfeet - no problem; it was a long shot. I had initially planned on Amsterdam but my wife will be 22 weeks pregnant and I don't want her searching around Amsterdam A&E when I get post race cramp or anything else. CRAB - 90 minutes on a treadm…

  • Evening all, just back from a week in New York and struggling to feel tired. I did all my miles in Central Park (64 miles - down from 95 weekly average) and very impressed at the sheer numbers of runners and cyclists in the park, even at 6am. Every…

  • Wicked D - If you are looking for a good for age entry into London and you are 43, your target is SUB 3:15 M Sas - Good luck with the sub 3 attempt. How many miles per week are you doing at the moment and how far are you going on your longest runs?
