Ally2 anything sub 4:50 will be happy with.

eL Bee! Blimey - a PB, and a fantastic tussle with Firestarter.  Superb race.  I REALLY enjoyed that (In a prolapse you lungs, It hurts a LOT kind of way!) Cumberland AC 5:19 5:19 5:45 5:19 74.39
EvilPixie Would love to sneak a PB but not sure due to lack of running since FLM but I am a stubborn Pixie! FERC, 1485 TRI CLUB 8:55 8:55 9:25 8:55 47.86
fetcheveryone Yay! First note must be to congratulate Barky on an amazingly well organised event, with at least three times as many people attending - this could go global. Race went fantastically well. Laps in 88, 92, 92, 90 - well chuffed. CC2 Speedy Goth went for a kick past me on the back straight, but I did a little kick of my own and held her off... then with 100m to go, she kicked again, and came past me - and this time, despite throwing everything in, I couldn't quite keep up, and I lost out by a second. Hands on knees knackered at the end, and a fantastic 26 seconds off my December effort. Can we raise the fast-folks threshold to 5:30 for next time so I can still fight for the bronze? FERC 6:02 6:02 6:20 6:02 61.97
Firestarter Bring it on!!!!!!
*Edit*.....Might be a tall order to break the 5:30.....not worth a bet!!!
**EDIT2**....What a fab day...thoroughly enjoyed it, a great race with RS and eL Bee and a shiney new PB to boot:-) Hermitage Harriers RC 5:20 5:20 5:30 5:20 76.45
Hanneke Loved it! Was hoping to just crack sub 7 minutes and made it with quite a few seconds to spare! Was bloody hard on tired legs from a 13 mile fell run on saturday and a 50 km bikeride on Sunday, but managed to keep a fairly even pace and not get an asthma attack :-) :-) :-)
A great day with lots of Fetchies and lots of fun and lots of cake :-)
Next one I shall be aiming for a PB again, as I think I can go faster :-) FELL PONIES, Black Mountains MBO 6:46 6:46 6:59 6:46 65.45

nic the fizz Hoping for 7 mins, if this calf strain clears up and i haven't completely wrecked it in the 400m races!
Small son will beat me regardless.

Not too bad after busy track meet on saturday! Burton AC 6:42 7:14 7:00 7:25 57.02
orbital sander no laffing at how rubbish i am :-)

Pricey Scraped a PB by 1 second. Not done any speedwork for a while as I ran FLM a few weeks ago and am still in recovery mode. Pleased with time though. Great run by Ally, well done. UKnetrunner 4:44 4:52 4:49 4:52 76.23
quimby Really have no idea how fast I can do a mile, but based on an average of 09:29 in a 5 mile race at the beginning of March, I'm going to say 08:30. But hope to go a bit faster.

SUB 8:00!!!! I ROCK! Unaffiliated 7:59 7:59 8:30 7:59 54.96
Racin Snail bit pissed off with myself as i panicked after the first lap(71 sec) and slowed way too much on the 2nd(83!!!) . finished strong but so i should have really!
Still a big p.b but with more confidence i think i would have broken 5 mins.
Good day out tho and you all still won your bets:-) Hermitage Harriers RC 5:15 5:15 5:10 5:15 71.82
SarahL Didn't have much energy left in my legs after running 12.5 miles of the fells over Sat and Sun.  Didn't matter, as this was an absolutely FANTASTIC day out!  Enjoyed every minute of it.  And I now have a target for the London mile in June - - - when I will taper and will also have done some speedwork training for it rather than just recovering from Paris marathon! :)

Graet day out :) FERC 6:20 6:20 6:15 6:20 66.40
sLickster Great race. PB by 22 seconds. Aimed for splits of 84, but did 81, 85, 86, 72, so a good finish then! Hermitage Harriers RC, Midland Masters A C, Team derby runner 5:16 5:16 5:39 5:24 68.70
