  • Simon - got you beat. Mine is 149 for 10.33 pace!  Max 193. No, my HRM is fine as have double checked it by pulse and it isn't a one off. I can measure 80% of maxHR coming gently *down* a hill. I've been measuring it for weeks now out of interes…
  • Minni - they really are! I recognithe them from being totally fast at XC so I didn't bother trying to keep up Yes, Edinburgh is an 8am start (yawn) as they want it completed by the time the marathon starts. I suppose if you are going to do multi-d…
  • Mr V - thank god I'm not doing that race. I absolutely detested it last year so didn't sign up. Track was really fun last night. Did the 3000m in 12.41 and considering I haven't been under 7m/m in a while (I think this avg 6.49?), I was quite plea…
  • BBB - my run was so so. 22.5x, which I suppose I can't complain too much given the awful conditions and two months of basically no/rubbish running with the chest thing. I have 3 more days of antibiotics, but I'm just finishing the course, they defin…
  • It was rather wet, wasn't it. I always enjoy those type of runs in a sadistic way, the rain was just lashing. Going back to the old start for today reminded me why they needed to change it. I wasn't totally far back, but was still over 8m/m by 0.3…
  • Tom - I haven't trained with my club in two years. Still very proud to wear my club vest and do take part in races, the XC league and help with marshalling club events, etc. Never been an issue.
  • BBB - I used to be religious about Nike, but switched to Adidas and never looked back. Use Boston in training and Adios for racing (ha, if I ever return), but they only have 3 miles on them after 15 months, sob. I can get 2000+ out of the Bostons. …
  • BBB - can you believe I was accused yesterday of being stubborn and pigheaded? He's supposed to love me too! Enjoy tonight.
  • Just back from the GP and unsurprisingly - a chest infection. Got myself a week's worth of antibiotics, so hopefully it will take a hike and let me get back to running. Curly - I'd rather look like a race walker than a shuffling elephant like …
  • Xpost Sounds good! Tail off in the last few miles wasn't massive and just indicative of the relative lack of long runs and weekly mileage, which you knew going in. A great marker for the next one. Runners can get a bit arsey, especially at tha…
  • WJH - I would be interested to see your splits. Well done at Brighton. Mr V - I could never be a veggie. Apart from the fact I don't really like veg, mmmmm, bacon! Hope you get to the bottom of it soon. Sunday's 10K was character building. Isn…
  • It isn't always windy. Just 364 days a year. It doesn't usually fill, I dont think it has ever sold out. It is quite good if you don't mind laps. I know Minni thinks it is fantastic, although it kind of fills me with dread! I can race two laps a…
  • Mr V - we seem to mirror each other. Really sorry to hear you are struggling. I've been ill for 3 weeks now and think I have only run 5 times in the last 3 weeks, now that is saying something for me! Just when I think I might be coming back and then…
  • Afternoon all. Been absolutely ill since the day after Thirsk with some kind of chest infection and a hacking cough. No running due to this for a week and also too busy with the school holidays and massive DIY projects, but I still decided to go …
  • Curly - yes, it was the same course. The problem was that I had misremembered it. I was sure it was just about half a mile across, then back. It went on forever! Isn't it funny that your memory of a race depends upon how good of a run you're having …
  • Mr V - Hartlepool 5m, sand dancer 6m MT and the Terry O'Gara 5K. I already wanted to do Hartlepool, the others are just because they are part of the VAANEE Champs. Forgot that I'm supposed to be doing the Elswick relays on Friday too but that is …
  • * had. Hate that I can't edit on an ipad.
  • Argh, missed a couple of key words out there. 69.xx at the 10m split! I know you have a couple of 10m splits in a HM faster then an actual 10M race. Well that attempt at cheek was a fail! My next 10M is in September. We'll see if I can get ba…
  • Woke up this morning with a sore throat and a sore chest. Daughter complained of a cold and I was tired from OH snoring for half the night and son knocking on the door saying the couldn't sleep with the wind. I was thiiiiis close to just staying hom…
  • Evening all, YD - I'm not sure I actually thanked you when I realised it was you and tried to exclaim a polite version of FFS. That last mile felt forever. Curly - hard work done now, you are well trained. Enjoy the 10M and look forward to the…
  • I'll post up later and when PRF posts his, maybe we'll compare a similar dropping off the cliff to prove it was the conditions and not just because I blasted off too fast
  • SG - sorry, missed your post. Another great pb. Just goes to show that no matter how long you've been running, you can still massively improve with the right training.
  • WJH - excellent, well done! Comedy splits at the Thirsk 10M today. Crazy, crazy wind, especially in the last mile - just when you need it I could be disappointed with it, but I'm not. First proper race in well over a year and at least I finis…
  • Phil - 3 pairs again! They were painful, numb and tingling before I even put them on. The wind was brutally cold. BBB - I often literally shake my head or curse out loud during a run due to the ridiculousness of the conditions. It is more to d…
  • Breaking news - it must be cold, Kelly actually ran with a jacket today YD - can you keep me apprised of Thirsk weather watch in the morning?
  • I'm having (another) strop about the weather. Snow flutters again, hail and torrential rain for the last few hours. I have one leak in Ben's room and one in my conservatory. Blah. I'll see you then. I'm doing some kind of relay race, just short, …
  • BBB - I don't do much tempo running at the moment. If I'm doing a block of MP running, I'll just do it continuously, with no stopping. A typical session would be 2m easy, 1m steady, 1m of strides (about 6 strides with jog between), then straight int…
  • I think it is just a string of incredibly bad luck. You have it in you. It will probably be a mental obstacle at first when your times won't be as fast as previously, but as long as you get a decent spell, they'll soon come down. I know how you f…
  • WJH - Erm, that is not your MP then. None of this going for just sub 3.30 now When is marathon day? Curly - very nice. Once you crack it, you'll probably find every 5K sub 20 and wonder what all the fuss was about. Alehouse - sounds like a de…
  • What a bunch of wimps we are. I ditched my double today too. Couldn't face going back out again. I've had far too much tea today and with every cup of tea... Uh oh. Even though we still haven't polished off the Xmas sweets, kids got me even more nic…
