are you sitting comforatbly? then I'll begin. Can't help but notice the mahoosive range of running paces/distances etc. in the land of Fetch, so I was wondering if those that are in clubs have changed much about thier running as a consequence of being club runners or if they already were within a shout of doing att the club type stuff anyway.

Do you get what I mean? I'm v slow and always have been, I'm not techno'd up so haven't a clue about heart rates/vo2 levels/anythign at all really and I've tried to roughly speaking have a long run and a bit of a hilly run and a run I might try and do a bit quicker or I might take it a bit easier on but I've never done proper serious targetted sessions, partly because I do generally like what i do and I'm still doing it after a number of years and partly because if someone asked me to run util i felt sick I'd just cry. But what if? What if inside I'm really an 8 minute miler and not a 10_11 minute miler? How do I know?

You'll never know unless you try. But you don't have to.

Depends on what you want out of your running and racing.

I have no doubt at all that joining a club made me much faster. Try it, you can always leave.

(though I'm back to slow again now)

Got something to say?
