  • Blimey Cal Jones, 500 and its only MiddleMarch, you'll be getting Harmander worried at this rate, and not surprised your legs feel heavy! David Charman, glad your getting some professional treatment, those swellings can be annoying, especially on a…
  • 1stly, Galloway method is one I've used in ultras and can only say good things about it. I found 4:1 suited me best after trying 10:2, but if 3:1 is working for you that's fine. 2ndly, in a race, Yes, start at or near the back, and in fact you coul…
  • No running at all last week, but swimming with this little friend in the Maldives sort of makes up for it! (Dubai is a very big airport, Dubai Runner, hats off to you who organises all those flights)
  • Or both are Lying shits of the 1st order, of course, just can't tell which is the biggest Liar, and who's got most to lose - Cohen's already due to be banged up so perhaps El Trumpo may tell the bigger porkies! so much more to lose and further to fa…

  • David Charman was going to post re running 2 mara's close together, but didn't want to jinx you! I ran London in '15, easy pace, a 4:14 with a view to getting a just under 4 at Halstead 2 weeks later - DNF'd after 17. These runs take it out of you s…
  • Small world Dubai, eldest GD just been accepted for Sullivan's! Which probably means her and her siblings will all go there as well. I went to Cabin Hill back in the day, long since closed down, and if ever a school needed closing down.......
  • Good Luck with the double David C, not for me at my age, need my rest between big runs! Have been having a short break in Holywood, so though I'd not get any runs in, but turns out the daughter I'm saying with has entered the Belfast Marathon, so w…
  • Well Done Cal Jones on the PB, if the route is anything like the Green Belt Relay stage 1 that starts from there, must be towpath flat! Ditto to Little Nell & JD1, must be nice to meet before a run, although I think I've been to the same race a…
  • Gipfel - I too could have blamed sightseer's legs, I walked the 1st few K of the course and then up to Montjuic Castle the day before, and then had to have a lie down in the afternoon to try and recover! But I'm going to go for the "the course was…
  • Well done Cal Jones and David Charman on your PBs in what sounded like not ideal conditions for a half. Weather was nicer in Barcelona for my half, a very flat course on a sunny day, no wind to speak of so being a minute slower than last weeks Gt B…
  • With the proviso that it's almost impossible to advise on the best shoe for someone else, fwiw I can give you some thoughts re long distance trails. (5 Beachy Head Marathons run, similar sort of surfaces as Glencoe)   Looking at the course video it …
  • ps, and an Age category win, if only I'd hung around after the finish to receive the plaudits!!!! Barcelona half next weekend, now that's one I'd love to get an age win, 
  • Afternoon All, Nell - well done on the considerate and caring run, I sometimes cross a bridge with a wreath on it and wonder if that was some daft kid playing silly b*ggers - they don't learn 'cos its usually a terminal lesson! JD1, that XC sounds…
  • re parkrun (apparently always lowercase according to parkrunners who care about suchlike!) MrM2, Nell, Harmander et al, my opinion fwiw is its a run, NOT a race, so the eyeballs out, sprint the finish is just plain silly. But then I tend to think an…
  • Steven Morrison 2 glad you're back, take it easy, playing catch-up can be counter-productive after illness. Cal Jones well done on the 20, hope there aren't any after-effects and your achilles holds out. MrM2 gratz on the 100, and glad you enjoy t…
  • Can I add in all these gels/drinks whatever that I see peeps strapping to their belts as being irrelevant to running -  a good breakfast and some water was probably all Steve Jones needed! Think I'll change my username to senidMGOG, as I appear to …
  • "For reference, a Cadbury's Fudge weighs 30g." and probably more useful on a run, all tech is actually irrelevant too running, just modern faddism

  • In my shorts, fits in the key pouch you usually get on all shorts - but then its a tiny Samsung clam circa 1999 - I can make phone calls on it but FA else - Isn't that the main purpose?
  • Garmins are funny things, ran the same LSR as last week, just clockwise instead of anti-c, helps with the dizziness when your getting on a bit, and it gave me a 14.4M - last week 15.5! wtf. I dunno, is it me or is modern tekk a bit odd, anywho, was…
  • Perhaps you don't actually know your max HR, until you find that out your concerns are all fairly meaningless.   You may want to try something like the field test described as https://www.polar.com/blog/calculate-maximum-heart-rate-running/ becau…
  • David Charman - Fwiw have been having a think about your "last one standing" run, which I see as fairly similar to soloing the Spitfire Scramble, but with the added complexity of a Beep Test as I assume if you miss a deadline you're out. When I sol…
  • can't really help, sounds a bit odd, but Chiro is considered a placebo at best, massage not much better, but a physio should be able to diagnose and give you some exercises, or direct you somewhere further that may have an answer.
  • Harmander - Oh dear, your newbie might need to reassess her aims, perhaps link up with the 6hr pacer? a 1:40 for a 10k does nor bode well, that's a 6hour + marathon ahead. Nell in answer to your ?, a GFA time for me is terrifyingly quick sub 5hours…
  • David Charman, yes, am booked in for the Spitfire, part of a team of 6 this year, having soloed and run in a pair for the last couple of years, think I'll take it a bit easier this year, just 4 or 5 laps (10Kish each) instead of trying for the the 1…
  • And a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all - peace & goodwill anyone?
  • https://www.decathlon.co.uk/onnight-210-trail-head-torch-id_8503712.html cheap'n'cheerful or https://www.decathlon.co.uk/onnight-710-trail-head-torch-id_8370255.html bit more powerful
  • I'm in, hoping for a better year, got a few races booked already, tempted by Manchester Nell, but have entered Boston instead, but the one in Lincs, bit cheaper and v flat, so hopefully will get a GFA time there. Looked at Harmanders list, at 1st g…
  • Welcome back Nell So know what you mean about falling out of love with running, am in the middle of a "just can't be bothered" finish to a fairly crap year. But next year will be better, lots of targets, especially a GFA time for London 2020, which…
  • Good running everyone, esp MrM2 marathon's time, that's a v comfortable GFA time by anyones standards Just crept over the 900 mark, but with only 2 weeks to go, think anything over 950 will about the best I can hope for. But got the Buntingford 10m…
