  • Sorry to read that AWC. Sad times.
  • Macca... what a great 5K time to put alongside your accomplishments at long distances - that's a wide spectrum of distances you're good at.  (and all the better that you did it after THOSE two days!) Jools..  so you were physically and mentally wea…
  • Knocked out an easy 23 TR... good effort! george... sounds a nice session. ramjet... enjoy that race tomorrow. Joe... sorry if I missed it... but which shoes? Chiksta... some good speed work. Volunteering at PR was probably just what you needed to r…
  • Good effort with the pretty successful PR/XC doubles Joe/Jools.  Tough going.  No time for the Gwent League for me Jools. Glad the SPO is better TR.  Look after yourself too.  My own experience with groin is to warm up really slowly.  Only ever thi…
  • SQ... IMO, if you think you won't damage quality training later in the week, then doing your long MP runs at HMP would actually be an advantage - you turn it into a very long almost lactate threshold run.  I would think it's important not to do your…
  • Rookie error AWC.  I'm doing Newport on 5th May. Flat as a pancake.  Still open. Jooligan - sounds like you've got a runner on your hands there. A bit of catch up for me after a blank few days.  5m at lunch and 11 last night.
  • Congratulations on your second placing Jooligan    Really good running Millsy... I've been meaning to read up on the AoA... and suspected that it might be a bit thin on the start line.  10th place is great. Well done. Sorry about the injury Westy.  …
  • Me too! Sorequads…  with reference to your diabetes...  I happened to notice this post on an ultra facebook group today.  If you've not seen it before, could be some interesting information there... and a free race in amazing scenery, if you fancy …
  • Nice PR win Jools – as for Lliswerry8... I did hear it was a touch breezy!  There are certainly some pretty exposed bits of that course. Joe – it must be terrible to be running such slow times!!  As you know, I’ve not followed and not sure i…
  • Still not found time to read back... except early in the thread noticing chicksta's heroics. OMG.. well done!  But I'll post anyway because if I wait until I've been polite enough to catch up with everyone, I'll never post anything. Did the Wychavo…
  • Hi everyone, I see lots of familiar names. The second half of last year was a near write-off for me with family issues, and then as things were settling down, I was down with that cough that got so many...  with only four runs in November and one ru…
  • Only a minute to check in and say thanks to Jooligan, who was race director last night for a really great 10K in the Forest of Dean. Great atmosphere, very well organised but relaxed.  And apologies I couldn't stay around to pick up my prize! It was…
  • Hi all.  Not decided if I'll do a marathon this autumn. Training is not going to be easy in the coming months. Just a brief update from me...  headlines from the Pen Llyn Ultra on a hot tough day.. 76 miles and somewhere between 8 and 9 thousand fe…
  • Buff cap arrived.  You don't  get much for £20!!  (and it's £25 - 29 in most shops).  Having said that, it's pretty much exactly what I wanted.  Looks slightly small on my head, but maybe that's because it's quite elasticy… so makes for a snug fit -…
  • Thanks Hazel... good call.  I ordered a Buff pack run cap.  Hope it's as good as the reviews. Jooligan... I did that Cotswolds relay a couple of years back and we've got a team in from the club... but of course you're right...  I'm not going to be d…
  • OMG Jooligan.  Did you do that for pleasure?!  Well done for getting through that.  Where did that weather come from? Great report Reg- and well done there too. Scott.. even your car must be tired. Looking in very good shape AWC Sounds a nice race J…
  • Good luck Macca.   And hard luck Millsy. Nice racing ramjet.  Never easy having to backtrack on a fellrace! Hazel... you must be out there in the dark, as I write... hope you're HM is fun... then it's welcome to Wales!  Are  you north, south, east o…
  • Skim-read a catch up.  Millsy...  do hope you're ok for the big one. Joe... legend!  Must have been so satisfying picking off your competitors on the bike and on the road, one by one. Jooligan...  I'd been looking at that Worcester mile.  Think wo…
  • Great report John Jooligan… sorry to hear that. Sounds a nightmare. I think many would have pulled out.  GWS. Good racing ramjet. Not sure I can motivate myself for a road half without pb potential at the moment.  Macca too.. great 10K Hope you're p…
  • Disappointing news from the giro.. I wanted the new kid on the block to come good. Really enjoyed your report Steve. Obviously most of us don't really know each other on here but equally there's more of a connection and openness than with complete …
  • AWC.... still a few marathons dotted around the summer.  I've got three lined up... all on 23rd June Didn't know about the Sugar Loaf fell race Jooligan.  I suppose I'd have struggled to justify being out for a second night  Encouraging news Scot…
  • You could have run to Kiev.  Fantastic you've got a ticket and that trip ahead of you. Really really hope you win. Jooligan... that is seriously mad stuff you've been doing these last few days. Definitely tougher than an ultra. Nice PR PB Harry J…
  • Well done everyone!  And good luck again with the foot Tom... it sounds a bit worse that I envisaged.  Good luck with that sneaky hundredK JO!   Macca... great race report on your 10K!!  Sounds a bloody good time to me.  Thanks a lot for your feedba…
  • Congrats on reaching the century SQ - if in thoughtful circumstances.  Enjoy the Worcester half...  you know you want to. I know I've said congrats already Millsy... but it really must have been a moment when you caught the leader.  Did you talk to…
  • Good report Macca - nice and descriptive... sounds like a satisfying race - very well done.  Interesting to see that you didn't buddy up with people.  I think I feel like I don't want to do that - well, not for long periods - but see the advantages …
  • Said it once already Macca... but having how run in this heat for a tiny fraction of a hundred miles, I have even more respect! Nice park run tourism Jools. Fast 5 miler for that course Hazel..  do you have a marathon coming up? A pretty taxing, un…
  • Congratulations Millsy and especially Macca... must have been REALLY tough in that heat. Glad you enjoyed the footy AWC - really glad you made the final and hope you go on to win it. Only two football matches matter today - great that we still hav…

  • Really enjoyed your report too, Tom.  Definitely my favourite road marathon now!  Well done on the job Reg. Good last big training run Macca, so good luck with the hundred. Looks like a nice race.  (I'm booked into the same Pen Llyn ultra as I attem…
  • Jooligan said: Not VLM but Wales' premier marathon: NewportFinished in 4 hours, took 22 minutes from 21-23M then only 22 minutes for the 3.2 to the finish (almost exactly 3hr pace & quicker than any parkrun he has yet done!) in spite of tak…
