It’d be fitting if all of us in the group, when restrictions properly ease, to do a memorial run. Pace irrelevant, time irrelevant. Just all get together, do 10k (I’m thinking start and finish at AG) and toast him for bringing it together. I get huge satisfaction from seeing what Tommy, Julian, Phil, Alex etc are doing and that’s down to OTIK.

If all goes to plan in the roadmap, one week before season starts provisionally?

Sounds like a great idea

I think this is an excellent idea.  I live in West Wales but am good for it, for sure.

I wasn't aware of this sounds like a good idea.

 

Are any of the South Glos runners doing the Westonbirt 10k this weekend?

I’ll look to get it in once we know fixtures.

And supposed to be doing it, yep. However booked for a night out with the wife on Friday now we can lose the kids and not sure exactly what state I’ll be in Saturday afternoon!

I wanted to do this one this year but having been injured for most of the year I hadn’t signed up. 
Only just making a comeback this last couple of weeks and am barely struggling to do a 5k, let alone a 10k ha ha. It’s amazing how quickly you lose fitness!

Good stuff. I've got a 50k race in 3 weeks so Westonbirt isn't deal preparation but both have been carried over from last year so I am giving it a go. I think this is my third attempt not been up there for it since 2016 though so hope I'm still as quick :)

Not this year - black rat cycle for me, can’t say I’m looking forward to it too much in this weather

Yeah its relentless.  I was fine running in snow/sub zero temps in Jan/Feb but I just cannot stand Wind no matter how much warmer it is generally.  Looks like it might sod off later today for an evening run at least.

I used to be a decent runner 2hr 32 marathon, 68.56 1/2 marathon, 30.12 10 k and 15.06 5k but now I just run for fun and do not compete as I will never get a PB, although I have noticed that standards have dropped because looking at race results the winning times are good but looking down the field the good runners are getting slower and it soon tails off to jogging rather that running.

Wow seriously good times!  - I was quite happy with my 3:40 marathon PB till my dad told me he ran 3:25 aged 55 🤣

Sorry to hear that mate. That’s a whole heap of bad luck. 
Have you got any other events coming up?

I got cotswolds 113 which is a half iron distance on June 6th and that will lead me nicely in to outlaw at the end of July which is the full Ironman distance

Tbf I think most of it’s on a bike but at least a HM of running on the first one!

Yeah first one is 1.2m swim, 56m ride and half marathon and the second is double those distances

@The turtle I'm surprised that you're not active in this thread considering your newfound passion for running!

I'm sure I could delight others in running a decent amount slower than a snail. 😂🐌

 

 

Though I should add, this article spoke to me:

Just starting to get back into this after got injured early January. Taken about 3 months to get back to half marathon which I did in 1 hour 54 on Monday. On New Years Day I did my best of 1 hour 47 so still a way to go but amazed by how long it took me to get back to even anywhere close. 6 weeks out made a hug difference - starting to see why it takes so long for footballers to get back to speed after an injury.

Yeah I think you have two be running at least twice a week to maintain a level of running fitness any less and you start to drop off a bit..sounds like you are doing a decent job at getting back on track though Alex

50K update, it was bloomin hot, a canal tow path is very tricky to run on when its this dry, I survived, not sure I can face that distance again...🤣

Gloucester? I’d seen that and contemplated it but missed the sign up. 
 

fair play!

Yeah I signed up back in 2020 thinking it was a good idea! It's a really nice route to be honest from Gloucester to Sharpness. I'm contempliating just doing the 25k race next year and running more against the clock than the distance.
