P&b Running Club


Recommended Posts

Just entered the City of Stirling 10k on the 16th September. Any other P&Bers doing this one?

I am hoping for a sub 42 minutes as it's a quick course but not counting my chickens.

Managed 42:12 on the treadmill today. I am hoping if I concentrate on some speed sessions between now and then I should be close on the day.

Just signed up for the Stirling 10k bar the parkruns it will be my first race so looking forward to it. I get back from honeymoon on the 13th so not too bothered about what time I complete it in as I probably won't be doing much running for the next few weeks.

Take your trainers with you. I am sure your wife will be supportive :lol:

Ran 10 miles today on the dread mill in 1:12:33. Actually quite enjoyed it for a change. Had some good tunes on and had the gym to myself so just plodded away.

Just signed up for Strathcarron hospice 10k (fun run) on the 7th October. Never ran it but according to the website it has been going for years. I thought about going to the Bupa 10k in Edinburgh on the same day but decided this would be less hassle.

You sure about that? I know I could run a half under 7.20m/m, but no chance could I run 8 miles outside a race at that pace.

I know what you're saying......and I maybe could maintain that kind of pace but the truth is I'm not brave enough to try. I've gone off too quick in a half before and it was torture.

I'm going to set off about 7.40 per mile and then see how it goes. I'd be absolutely delighted if I could manage any time below 1hr 40m. That would be a huge PB for me.

I am also aiming for below 1.40, my pb for 10km not in a race is 45.10 so it is going to be tight!

Already got them packed in the case 8)

We got married on a Friday and I was at the Clyde game 24 hours later so I don't think she'll mind me going the odd run while we are away.

Was looking at the Strathcarron 10K as well the Bupa one is a bit pricey at £26.55 especially when there is another 10K at the same venue on the 21st Oct which is only £15.

Good luck everyone for Sunday. Be interested to see how everyone does against target times. Realistically mine is to not slow to a walk at any point, but if I can get round in 2 hours I'll be ecstatic. So from the ones I can see:

10k

Fernandosmonobrow - 0:43:00

HM

Kenzie - 1:30:00

fannypaddery - 1:40:00

ziggy - 1:40:00

DiscoDuck - 1:59:59

Jamie beatson - ?

Boghead Ranter - 1:59:59

Diamonds 2002 - ?

Any others?

2 hours is my target time, I'll be very happy to be anywhere under that. I've got £580 in the bag for Cancer Research, so my main focus is earning that, but beating target time too would be smashin'.

Echo DD's thoughts, good luck all, and I hope we all enjoy it.

I'm aiming for sub 43 in the 10k.

Would much rather be aiming for 1.33 in the half though sad.gif

I did the Strathclyde Parkrun yesterday - first time there as I normally do the Glasgow one, and what a difference no hill make. Took it easy, as doing the GSR 10k this morning, and still had a PB. I really liked the pacers idea (which I don't think I have ever seen at Glasgow), and the distance markers on the course (which Glasgow definitely doesn't have).

The Strathclyde one is really good, no hills apart from a small incline when you go through the trees at the top of the course.

I done it yesterday in 23.21, taking 32 seconds off my PB of 23.53 two weeks ago.

Around 48.30, which was under my target of sub-50. Bit gutted though, as it was going really well until about 6k, when my knee (which I have never had an issue with) began to really hurt. I was almost in tears at the end, but as soon as I stopped, so did the pain. Just a dull ache now.

Hope everyone achieved their goals! Smashed home in 1:25:54 according to my watch (delighted!), I'll await the results going up to confirm time (second year running I had a safety pin failure and had to pocket my number).
