Marders can do one. That's just ridiculous mileage. I think he will become really very tasty at ultra/100k race distance, and fancy some records to tumble.
PP, ES, SC - whippersnappers (we haven't heard that word on here for a while)
Last night's GRL didn't go exactly to plan. About a mile jog down, met a few faces I knew, got a brief overview of the course, and off we went - basically it's an out and back course, 2 laps, flat, but in total 8 x 90 degree corners, and 4 x 1…
ES - what's a cutback week?
12 miles this am with 8x 800 thrown in, all sub 3mins. Still got a jog home to do for a decent day's work.
Going to try the rival to parkrun tomorrow - Great Run Local - since it's near my new office. 1 M w/u,…
Joolska - that's a lovely back-to-back session, well done.
Jooligan - good TM effort
CC - BLING!!! Well done.
Padams - good XCing.
Have already seen the BM results from a few, not Wardi though, sensibly eased back. I assume no bad boy …
Been a bit of a crazy period at work for those doing their returns, hence my absence.
Nice XC-ing, racing and training going on.
Nowt to report here - sneaky first finisher at the hilly parkrun last week, only 15 secs outside my course PB, …
Belated Xmas and NY wishes to one and all.
Some marvellous racing going on, with the usual wins happening - pats on the back to one and all.
Bog all to report expect I am fat, and getting slower, thanks to the homemade mince pies from the M…
Superb reports Dan and Ryan - sounds a lonely course, so well raced!
Nothing really to report here, just banging more commute miles in - 5 doubles last week, a short recovery run pacing at a parkrun (target 22, ended 21.54), and an almost 18…
Been offline last few days, seems I've missed a fair bit.
Some superb racing over marathon, xc and parkrun distances.
Getting my body used to this double commute running again - 3 doubles last week, interrupted with a midweek Xmas do, foll…
Cracking stuff indeed about Donnie, such a nice down-to-earth guy too.
LMH - 4000? Jeez, am in awe.
RS - nae luck on the distance/time/crappy prizes.
Legs a bit mashed after doubles every day this week, 45M so far, and only halfway throu…
OO!! Welcome back.
Super stuff TR, glad to see the miles coming back. Slowly, slowly, catchy monkey though.
Good racing PP and ES.
A weekend on the lash with he of the short legs and multi-coloured Mohawk and Caz. Many pints and German…
PP - no thanks, you can keep it, you're very welcome
LD - welcome back matey. WE just need njord, Gold Rush, Crab, Gobi and Dull to come back. Amongst others.
CW - I had one of those, but it's not bright enough for the night-time trail ru…
CD - stop it, you'll let all the proles in (that's a joke, as per other places, all welcome here - both those offering and those seeking inspiration)
Excellent racing all - my (and Alan's) 5 mile race on Saturday was cancelled due to severe…
Corking tready sesh SL.
Congrats on the impending arrival TR - lab or spaniel would be my recommendation.
Alan - see you there, if it isn't cancelled due to the weather.
In other news, I am moving office (same job role), …
Welcome back TJK, I remember you I think, although old age is getting the better of me! Great shape, and the running sounds fantastic there!
Dan - flips sake man! Nae luck after a great build-up. Maybe a virus/bug brewing? Recover well!
Good racing folks - I had intended blasting a parkrun, but pretty much all of Glasgow was an icerink on Fri and Sat (I was like Bambi on my Fri "easy" jog, and ended up stopping after 2M and heading back), so only 1 out of 8 local…
looking at the prices, I guess you'll get what you pay for. nowt wrong with Karrimor (apart from who owns it!) quality - it serves a purpose, but the fit is pretty poor. HS stuff might be worth a punt.
LMH - I should also point out that both she and her husband are clubmates of AlanB.
Welcome HA77 - it would be helpful if you could let us know what times you are currently running for 10k, HM, marathon, etc.
DanA - it was indeed Osasuna. If only I'd known you were there! It was a (then) work jolly, so all expenses paid inc race entry and a few freebie bits of stuff from sponsor asics. Trip up the cable car and Olympic Stadium on the Monday follo…
Barca is indeed a great course (slight incline in the last 200m which you don't want as you sprint for the line), and exceptional organisation. The only general downside is that if it's warm (25C the year I did it), there isn't much shade on t…
