For all those of you who love a good stat. History was made yesterday by Susan Duncan. She became the fastest female over 10k to have run in a Weston AC vest. Congratulations Susan. Oh by the way Tracey Lewis is male and Kira Thorpe's brilliant time was while running for another club.

Marathon running was what I did.You must remember we didn't have Garmins only set routes and stop watches. If you wanted to do 10km races track work was best.My average weekly mileage was 40 miles. Every Sunday run was 20 miles (30 years) Tuesday night club circuit, run at race pace. Thursday club night probably 8 miles. if you were training for a marathon, a hill run or hill intervals and a longer run mid week would be introduced always one day complete rest. Never did more that 60 miles a week. Brian Courtney started training with me after doing 3hr.28mins in the Bristol Marathon and 3 years later did 2hr.37min in London. We didn't over train we put the effort into the long run, and the speed work was 9 mile flat out. No gadgets or gizmos just quality miles.

Hi MTG, Being borderline obsessive myself your post interests me. Social media apps, such as Strava, may contribute to an athletes focus on training & mileage, although evidence of this seems largely anecdotal at best, but surely it is the obsessive nature of someone's personality that is much more likely to lead to over-training?
Your suggestion that reverting to just a stopwatch will solve this seemingly ignores that a higher percentage of runners over trained in the 1970's & 80's, when club running standards were in their heyday, but overall numbers of runners were lower than today's 'parkrun generation' - happy to discuss

Great discussion on Marathon Talk this week discussing the fine line between training and when it becomes a dangerous obsessive problem. One of the main causes: (runners using apps such as Strava) Bring back the good old days when just a stopwatch was used!

Monday 27th TWAC
We have all been in awe of Woots and the Ultra Great Britain race. In honour of his epic effort and commitment to this (and everything he does) this Monday’s session is dedicated to him. We will be returning to Sand Point for the Wussy Woots 210 mile challenge. Our Group Mission, should we choose to commit to it, is to do the group accumulative of 210 miles i.e. if there are 50 of us we only need 4 and a bit miles each, so the more that take part the lower our individual mileage needs to be.

Session Name: WUSSY WOOTS (credit to
Tamie for the name) Hill Repeats
Location: Sand Point
Meet Point: Sand Point Car Park
Meeting Time: 18:50 (for 19:00)
Pub: The Commodore

Summer reads available, give me a shout if you would like either of these books:
'Irongran' by Edwina Brocklesby - someone from WAC gets a mention, but who is it?
'North' by Scott Jurek - even the worlds best ultra athletes have their limits
Gave these next books to the charity shop but I recommend 'Redemption: From Irons Bars to Iron Man' by John McAvoy - big time London gangsta turns into top amateur triathlete, & 'Find a Way' by Diana Nyad - after multiple failed attempts Nyad swims from Cuba to Florida 110 miles unassisted, both worth a read.

Good luck with your OW triathlon this weekend. I left a note for you on messenger RE: swimming at clevedon.
Hope you don't get too nervous... let the space open up at the start - I always used to find it helped calm my nerves and get my breathing under control. Try and enjoy the experience!

Just to re-iterate Nick's comment thanks again to everyone coming forward to help organise and marshal the event.

For those of you not on fb or the TWAC fb page at least 3 people managed to pick up a tick last night one of them 4. So whether you ran or marshalled you may just want to give yourself the once over. Shane has the club tick remover kit.

Thanks you to everyone who helped at last night's Beacon Batch race you are all very much appreciated. The chairman of the Fell Runners Association was running last night and he told me the two things he was impressed with was the quality of the marshalling and the number of Weston club runners supporting the event. So thank you to everyone, real TEAM effort!
