  • Well done - You have been clocking up those miles and some great times - elite sounds about right:-)

  • thanks suzy benj gonna be chasing them front runners this time your big day this weekend i hope things are ok with yourself and wish you the best of luck to you

  • Yaaaay well done that's fantastic. You go. Ps. Look after injury as well. Great news.

  • only running 3 times a week now just in case thanks

  • What pace are you running your half time at Moger?

  • had 2 in the 8 min pace the rest was in the 7s and with sprint finish sorry took so long map my run probs im able to run 7.30 now and still can talk might have to work on that a bit

  • Wow you are rocketing. My half times are around 2 hours/ 2 hours 10 depending on hills but like you I can still chat away. I had a body composition analysis a few weeks ago and when they tested my aerobic capacity I was told off for not pushing myself more because I could still have a conversation, mind you I could probably talk under water where I'm such a chatterbox lol!

  • i done a 14 and 15 mile run and about 4 13s b4 you should get faster without really working plus on small runs i pushed myself i had a crappy last long run 13.4 and had to walk a bit but in the last week i had 4 run s doing speed work

    in sundays 10k the slowest i went was 7.30 and that was off road and hills lots of hills

  • I really need to work on my hills it is my weakest area. Which halfs are you planning to do this year? I have entered 4 but they are spread over the year and a couple of 10 milers including the great south. I ran one race last year and this year I have gone running crazy and entered 20!

  • ive got a half in june but maybe a 10k at wimpole hall in may and then 10k sep and then it s the royal parks half in oct

  • Great stuff moger. You must be chuffed to bits with your elite runner status, and how far you've come since c25k

  • still got a bit more in me yet would be nice to see how far i can go with this

  • thats great moger, you're going from strength to strength by the sound of it, amazing to be in the elite runners after 7 months you should be really pleased with that-amazing work! :)

  • thanks aliboo im a bit shocked but it will make me faster i think im a natural runner i was second best in school and could have run for cambs but i was 15 then i hope i can take this a lot further i think ive got more to give yet
