  • Sounds like a bit of recovery going on around the forum. TR... perhaps except for you.  Hope the head cold disappears. Nice pic FBT... doesn't look like you're packing extra weight! SQ.... easy, tiger. Everyone else... well done... and if you're hea…
  • Spoons/SQ...  I'm planning to do Worcester Pitchcroft on Saturday. Will you be there?
  • Respect guys. Hope you're a bit better today... especially Jools - sounds like a real toughy - I had seen your splits and wondered about the reasons. Strange week for me.  FIVE rest days in the last pre-taper week. FIVE!!   But I still managed 45 …
  • Well battled TR.  Good training for Yeovil.
  • Good luck tomorrow.
  • Bloody hell TR.  It never rains but it pours. How did you get to have that medical Jooligan?  Interesting.  Easy number for anyone tracking... but I'm marshaling all morning so you'll be long finished before I'm home. You're getting about a bit Jo…
  • Really great report Macca.  So well written.   And what a year you've had.  19 seconds... or "19 bloody seconds"... as I knew it, resonates with me... but not attached to such an impressive time as you!  My first marathon, Preston 2012, I ran 4:00:…
  • Mostly pretty flat Jooligan.   6m with club up and down some fields round Monmouth then just Monmouth to Symonds Yat along the river then finishing with a steady climb for about half or three-quarters of a mile climb up into the woody hillside befor…
  • TR...  All the very best to you. Running, and everything else, has to drop down the priority list at times like this but hopefully things settle down for your dad now. SQ Great last LR and speed session too -   you too, Hamo. Steady-away 13miler S…
  • HPR...  b*gger.  You and george had some terrible luck there. Hopefully you've had much better luck TR. AWC... great fifty! Everyone else.. going good. I couldn't get my long run in on Sunday... so was stranded on 29 for the week   -  now thinki…
  • Well done Macca!   TR...  I've a friend who tried the workaround on their phone, and it didn't work.   It worked fine for me on my laptop.    
  • Put this URL into the browser... see the number that starts with 64...  then replace the 5 digits that follow the 64 with the runner's number  (put zeros in front if they don't have 5 digits in their number.  So Macca would be 6401285 https://live.…
  • Really bad news george.  I'm doing Newport marathon 5th May.  I think it's even flatter than Manchester (if it's possible!) and still taking entries. TR...  not sure where my 10K and HM  stands at the moment.  I was 1:40 in Newport half 5 weeks ago…
  • Good luck Manchester.  I've done the last 4 but deferred this year's entry... or I'd have been there with you!  And hope you enjoy the relaxing ultra, AWC. Only ever had one sports massage Jools.  I'm sure the advice was that it is only race-day ef…
  • I've been keeping up with everyone but not found time to post for a few days.  So well done everyone!  And stay healthy... Joe... hope you're taking a few days off...  your race performance won't be affected by a little break... but could be destroy…
  • Maccatheknacca said: I took delivery of some proper beer it shots and they taste ok.   Beer it shots...   that sounds more like it Macca!
  • Hope all works out well with your Dad, TR. Nice racing Jools...  sounds like you're on the mend... and certainly top marks for consistency. Fantastic result today Joe. Great fitness and great determination.    As for the park run...  I just had a …
  • Thanks for letting me know about the broken link... I'll get the IT department in to fix it. Beet it shots?  Beetroots are much cheaper and feel more natural.. and a nice snack the evening before and the morning of a race.   Done that a few times b…
  • Fat Boy Trim said: NE - where did you get that picture of me!!! HA - its not too many leaves - its the wrong sort of leaves... Nothing's private when you do public races  -   http://www.marathon-photos.com/Fat_Boy_Trim
  • Spoons...  researching the Tracksmith Strata vest... looks interesting - perhaps a little more practical than FBT's kind suggestion.   Not sure about cutting up other technical teeshirts AWC... I had wondered about that - but even then, I'd want the…
  • Oops. Soz hpr! Overdressed running... I'd been thinking I might be giving this a go.  Newport in May has been VERY hot quite a few times recently...  a disadvantage of a late marathon.   Think it was Spoons who I first read about using this overdre…

  • Tough week indeed Jools.  Take it steady for another week. Please! Macca. Unbelievable (except, it's believable).  What age-grading is that? Spoons.  Ouch.  Really tough for you.  Hope all the niggles clear up together.  Maybe you just needed to r…
  • Good he saw it all and didn't just disappear into the distance Jooligan! Anyway, I did the 7m LT run tonight...  as you might remember, I do these at a constant HR (157bpm) and just see what pace comes out...  and I saw a big step forwards.   Last…
  • What a lot to catch up on.  Some great race reports. Jools.. Bloody hell.  I'm really glad you went and got checked out properly. Please take some time off.   How was the pedestrian?  And did you interact with the bus driver at all? AWC..  I don't …
  • AWC....  hopefully "It'll be all right on the night"... it usually works out that way. george... great customer service from your running shop.  Wouldn't get that from Amazon I guess! Hamo... hadn't noticed gfc at the end of you name.  The Gills? …
  • Well done on the pacing Joe. And Macca...  what a great PR.  For sure, that muddy terrain cost you 8s. Great run Jooligan SQ...good news on the injury. I think I got to the bottom of my half marathon result last week. The day before, someone asked…
  • Bit to catch up on - so, in no particular order... TR... Great consistency over the winter. Really well done.  Brighton not far off. HPR...  similar.  5wks to go. Squeaky-B time.   Is that the same race, or Manchester? SQ... Hope you've recovered f…
  • Great time george. Well done. Another good running weekend for you Jools. Newport Half did nothing to improve my confidence today!  Really great running conditions...  cool, light rain and very little wind.  Absolutely went for it. My shoe laces ne…
