  • It’s Big It’s Bad It’s Bob!! Welcome back Bob - good to hear from you. Sounds like you’re in much better shape than me. Well done McFlooze - two good efforts in one weekend. I managed 5 miles today which is still most my calves can manage. Never…
  • DavidHaydon83 said:    6 x 800m @ 6:05m/mi tomorrow. DavidHaydon83 said: I found that quite tough. Averaged 5:59m/mi over the 6 reps.  Last two were very hard. Well done though - good session.
  • PeteHew said: Skinny, I did that exact route a couple of years ago.  Breathtaking views of the crags. Quote: "Bit of a climb with not much of a path up to the ridge".  Classic understatement.  Wainwright indicates a path on his route map and…
  • McFlooze said: So came in at 1.10.38 which I was pretty pleased with   after the prizegiving with a 3rd place Ladies team trophy for my troubles.  Super-knackered but it's such a fun day out!   And Lou raced too, 10 miles!  And enjoyed it! …
  • Nice video Muddy - don't fast runners run fast!!
  • It's a shame lake did not extend slightly further towards me as the fell and reflection are almost perfect if you rotate 180 degrees so it could have been a perfect mirror image.
  • Well done both - excellent times when neither of you are in peak condition. Talking of peaks (and mainly for Pete) I went up Fairfield from Bridge End yesterday (about mile from Patterdale) up the Deepdale valley. I set off at 10am on a dream day a…
  • Good stuff David. Also if you pass someone towards the end of the race you will have the pleasure of hearing them mutter under their breath in a southern accent 'Fkn Kent'. Mace is down that way too?? I had my massage this lunchtime - OWWW OUCH O…
  • PeteHew said: Great to have the TTT back!  Sadly, I am now 66 and 10st 4 so I suspect I have just borrowed McF's silver cell for a week or two. Even though it's all relative, I'm sad to see a lower wava score.    Maybe it will give me some muc…
  • literatin said: I'm 37 Skinny. Also I am a bit less skinny than I used to be, but I don't weigh myself so I don't know by how much. Probably about 9st 7? Obvs I have won more medals and stuff since then, but you've eliminated one of the only ca…
  • Track times updated - 5:11 sounds super fast!!
  • Table with DH added - Mace moves up to the top table (where he eats and plays pool) and loses all his silver cells which mainly go to DT although Pete picks up best WAVA and DH is now the youngest active thread member. DH goes right to bottom of ta…
  • DavidHaydon83 said: Great read that muddy.  Clearly something wasn't right and you made the correct decision.  As you said in your initial post after the race, there will be other opportunities.  Happy to add your PBs to the TTT - just …
  • Tommy2D said: Cheers Skinny. I've remembered that I ran a 800m race last year in 2:26. My mile PB is also much quicker than shown on the table but it was run on the road not on a track so assume that doesn't count.   As there is no …
  • Attached updated. Please check your ages and weight ;-) The Pof10 WAVA check produced some changes as the 5k seems to have been regraded upwards and 10k downwards. I ignored the Pof10 best WAVA if it was some random distance like 7.6miles (DT) or …
  • muddyfunster said: It involves targeting the Hull half on June 2nd, … In between, I have Market Drayton 10k this Sunday and fancy the Speedway 10k in June a couple of days before my 49th birthday but will see how the Hull recovery goes. …
  • literatin said: Anyway I think it was in the Lake District and she quite enjoyed it despite the bonkersness. I've been doing a little  bit of running - up to 8ish miles at a lovely gentle pace, and I keep promising to go back to training with…
  • McFlooze said: I think that was faster than my PB so still not the shortest person on the thread. I did a light interval session today at lunchtime in the pouring rain (definite mascara incident). Light as racing on Sunday. So I did 4 x 800m. …
  • literatin said: Ooh! An unexpected Skinny race report; how thrilling. However, I am a bit miffed that everyone (DT, Skinny) has been keeping their training secret on a training thread. Grr. Yes I was a bit embarrassed with solution numbe…
  • Okay Muddy - my conclusion from reading your report is that we need more DNF race reports on this thread - I think you captured the shame element perfectly. It's obvious from reading through that you made the right decision and hopefully you can ge…
  • StevieWh said: Skinny - I had two weeks completely off running, saw the physio after the first week. I then spent 3 weeks building back up with 5min run 1 min walk etc before I could start full training again. So I'd say 5 weeks, during this I …
  • Okay DT and Muddy - attached is the very out of date TTT - have a look and tell me which times are out of date and I'll update and publish whenever anyone gets a PB - I'll drop the number of prizes etc because it's just too out of date now and I'll …
  • DT19 said: Lovely stuff, Skinny. I bet it felt great to be in a race and passing people!? Fingers crossed you wake up feeling good.  muddyfunster said: That's really great to hear you ran a race,survived and put down a very dec…
  • StevieWh said: Skinny - Thought I'd drop in to say I recently switched to mid/forefoot running and had calf problems (ended up getting a calf tear) since then I have done loads of single leg bent knee calf raises and now I don't have any proble…
  • Hollywood Stroll 5 mile race Flattish 5 miler on quiet country roads with a field of about 100 people. Weather was cold but dry and not much wind. Decided to wear my racers (Nike Lunaracer 3) but no watch as  a) I had no idea what pace I could run…
  • Hi everyone - I’ve been a bit quiet about my running last 2 weeks because after my two 5 milers in 3 days I had a bit of foot pain at end of a 3 mile run so have only run 3 miles once in each of last two weeks. The other thing I have been keeping a…
  • McFlooze said: I did a crossfit class at lunchtime today for the first time in ages and was properly sweaty (my mascara still stayed on though).  Yay!!
  • literatin said: You can get away with being a bit grubby underneath for a few hours. Probably not the best terminology in this conversation :-)
  • McFlooze said:  Skinny - my approach is to have a shower of my body leaving my head dry and around my face I just sort of lightly pat the worst of the salty sweat off, leaving my mascara intact.  I don't normally sweat so heavily that it is pou…
  • DT19 said: No shower in my workplace and I often do 13 with 10 at tempo over lunch. I didn't realise you wore mascara.
