  • Excellent race strategy and overall result DT. Just seen your race report on the other thread - it was a complete coincidence seeing you over the course of a very weird 10 minutes for me personally whereby we we’d only decided to spectate by the off…
  • Thanks all - yes I will stick around and need anything to motivate me at the moment. The less you do the less likely you are to get out there. That’s how it is with me anyway. Needing someone in at all times to cover phones during work doesn’t help …
  • I still read from time to time but not really in decent shape to be worthy of posting currently! Good stuff DT - Hopefully the niggle will clear up and the base mileage will be a big advantage. Looks like you are ticking over nicely Andrew. …
  • Hi all. Not posted in so long as am literally plodding these days and a few stone heavier! That and much less mileage makes a huge difference. Family commitments and work taking precedence here for the short term at least. Hope all your training is…
  • Take it easy with the foot Andrew. Hopefully no mishaps with the cricket tomorrow.  Excellent WP sounds like you are over the injuries now! Nice to see those sort of numbers on the watch if not seen in a while.  Good luck with the sub 19 attempt…
  • Thanks all. Doubt I'll ever do one that long again. Will certainly look into doing that Alehouse....how often would you recommend I do that? Certainly take your point DT. I also didn't mention that I did no attempted mp at the end of my long …
  • ....Good return and improvement with the heart rate Dr Dan. Sounds like we have similar 5k targets at the moment! 
  • An autumn marathon in future marathon might offer a fresh challenge too. I did say it was long....apologies to anyone if you've actually sat down and read through all that!
  • However the feeling now developed into a pain which meant I wasn't able to lift up my right leg. I knew plenty would be tracking online and would be wondering what had happened...oh he's hit the wall, ran out of steam whilst in fact it couldn't be f…
  • Had a chat to a couple whilst waiting, one of which was aiming for my target of sub 3:15. Before we knew it we were off! First mile felt fine in 7:30 despite a little bit of weaving albeit not that much. It was a little better with 7:17 over mile 2.…
  • VLM 2016    So here is my report from last Sunday. Apologies for its length, it's not often I do one of these but with it being London makes that a bit different. I'd trained more for this compared to the previous 5 (3) marathon I've ran and found m…
  • Good going Dr Dan, not far off at all to the sub 20. Managed my first sub 20 in over a year with 19:56 this morning...I'll take that but still confused about the knee. A weakness rather than injury per say perhaps? Poorly paced this morning too…
  • Hi all. Great race report DT. Stuck to your guns on what you have been saying even from meeting you in Cardiff and good to see it paying off. As for the GFA times I'm surprised they haven't been reduced if that's the case.  Good to have a target…
  • Is that Riga by any chance PRF? My brother and two of his club mates are going out there to do the half although my brother may have to take it easy having been injured since the turn of the year - either that or he will go there supporting. Not g…
  • I made exactly that same point recently on here seren nos....I also ran that too and remember it was caused by someone moving roadworks the night/early morning beforehand so a completely different situation altogether too. Now awaiting for my 4th sh…
  • I still have the Manchester Marathon car sticker on the back window of my car from 2014. I think I'm going to take it down and stick it back on with it edited with a marker to show 25.98 miles and add the word 'shortest' marathon to it's flattest, f…
  • Exactly DT. The fact it wasn't the same chap then doesn't make it any better although must have happened very close by.
  • Thanks all...will definitely look into the possibility of seeing a physio about my knees. I guess a marathon at some point will expose a weakness there. My pace per mile was marginally faster than Manchester last year at a perceived equivalent effor…
  • Hi all. Excellent DT great PB - sub 3 is there down the line for you. Couldn't believe bumping into you again before the start. Good to have a quick chat and sounds like you executed things really well. As for my race, I was having arguably t…
  • Cheers DT good luck - your training has been immense! No doubt if I do see you it will be on the start area again telling you to move up!
  • I've since seen that Dr Dan. Just got to put it into perspective. Many others will have worse to deal with over it potentially. For me it's a relatively minor matter of no longer having sub 3:15. Those achieving bigger milestones whether gfa, sub 3,…
  • Cheers everyone! Looks like the race is out of your legs Andrew! Decent week WP! Good run there Myox and hope the wedding prep goes well. Cheers PRF started lunchtime and believe it or not it was a tip from Phil a few years ago (I am…
  • Good to see some older regulars. Good luck to everyone else too whether racing or pacing duties Phil. Good tip too as have had many an experience of that - DT you only need to ask Vincent (Andy Yu's pal) how he always seems to remember me! PRF - …
  • Sounds like a decent route WP. Not looking to do another marathon soon but always looking at options for Welsh races as noted previously. Will hopefully enter some races over the coming weeks once London is out of the way and sorted out whether to s…
  • Excellent Dr Dan...you must be very happy with that progress!  Good to see you racing WP. Is the course there largely flat btw? And does it cover part of the Llanelli half route?  Great consistency streak Alehouse. Find it tough even with steady…
  • Well done DT a great boost before next week! 
  • Hi all. Good run there iower - how naughty missing out on the last 0.3 miles though!  Sounds like it was a good workout for your forthcoming triathlon. As for the GPS settings, funny you mention that as my brother gave me one of his old Garmin's r…
  • alehouse wrote (see) My concern is that if one council or other landowner decide to charge then lots of others will try to follow suit: could be an easy money earner for some, often would be £3-400 every Saturday morning for not doing a lot. Ag…
  • 4 X 1 mile  - good session CB! Well caught up with the long run Dr Dan - hope the 400s session goes well. Good weight loss there iower and decent session yesterday despite the turnout. Will you be running any future HRRL races? Andrew - it is …
  • Well done all running at Manchester this year. I watched some of the race on Youtube and it was interesting (in hindsight) to see the leader checking his watch more than you'd expect him to! Perhaps they had issues on seeing the mile markers? What s…
