RicksRunning Upsets Local Club Runners!

NEWS FLASH

I went down to Ainsdale for the clubs weekly fartlek session, only to receive a barrage of abuse from team mates Neil Adshead and Stevie Lewis.
They were not happy with my Standish Trail Race Report.
Neil wanted it known that he had finished only 20 sec behind me and on ONLY 10 Miles running a week!
Neil's [nice bloke that he is] natural ability at X/C running is legendary as to is his lack of willingness to get off his backside and train. As a result he may have wasted much of that talent over the years, which is a great shame!
Having said that I'm more than happy to kick his ass when I can :0]
Stevie felt unhappy that I did not mention every one else in the club that ran and felt I boasted too much about my race.
Ouch :0[
I should point out to Stevie this is not a club website, I did write race reports for the southport club for quite a few years and felt it was time for someone else to do the reporting, this blog is about me and my struggle to run faster than ever before!
I am more than happy to write about people who inspire me and also feature runners who have achieved amazing things-Amanda-Ben and Steve Prentice have been featured here for good reason!
Please read my report again, I do not feel I was boasting about my race performance.
I was just very happy that I felt really good after following Keith Livingstone's Lydiard program.
Hopefully this blog can inspire a few to greater things, to think more about your training and enjoy running!
In the last few weeks I've have had some hostile reactions, for some strange reason when I tell runners I've switched to Lydiard's training methods, I've no idea why? but I really don't care as I know it's the right direction to take and my results will prove them wrong!
P.s. Stevie i think your idea to start your own blog site 'Stevie; Women and Running' is a good one and I will give you a free plug here when it's up and and running, I'm sure it would be far more popular than RicksRunning!

Hey Rick,

I hope you know I think your blog, the reports, training, ideas and thoughts are something I really enjoy and look forward to reading. As a relative newbie, I believe your passion for running & friendship is a core contributor as to my own performance and archivements. Your drive for improvement, results achieved and continual challenging of how to increase you own level gives me great believe that I can follow and do that as well. I'm sorry if yesterday's banter had overstepped a mark; there was never any malicious intent.
If I was ever to start a 'Stevies: woman & running' blog I sure it will have about as much success of my marathon attempt :(
I'll leave the blogging to you!

I'm incredulous that anyone should be berated for anything written in their personal blog.
Just because you (we) choose to spout on in a public arena about what we get up to in training and racing doesn't mean we are somehow accountable to anybody about what we write (or fail to write)

I think it was probably all meant in jest though and no harm done eh?

Keep it up Rick - I enjoy reading
