Minnie6--Ok! I was going to cancel due to lack of interest/work but i will cancel the cancellation. I will start a list!
M6s (Its nothing to do with GBM) Sunday Morning Lyme Park Run. 9am at Disley Station. All welcome.
Minnie6, Mickey6, GBM,
2nd Parkrun back since being injured this morning at Burnage. Painful calf, a stitch and a crap time. It's good to be back
MTBB--Well done! I thought i was going to win Woodbank PR this morning. I got there late then had to go for a poo so only had one lap of the track as a warm up. So i decided i would ease into it early on then pick it up as the race went on. Despite this plan i found myself in 4th place entering Vernon Park and the 3 in front of me didn't look anything special so i spent the rest of the first lap preparing speeches and 'My first race win ever' race report. At halfway i was in 2nd, about 5 metres behind the leader and the daft sod kicked for home. I kept my pace steady and chuckled to myself at his stupid tactics and waited for him to blow up. But the bastard didn't, unlike me after the second climb! Finished in 19.17 which was quicker than it felt. Park runs are stupid and i hate them!
MTBB & GBM - Congrats on your parkruns!
I also did one (Wythenshawe) - lovely morning for it, and a little firmer underfoot than 4 weeks ago, but I was no quicker (about 24:30)I have always known that I am not really a "morning person" and have decided to give up parkruns as a bad job - although I will first confirm my theory by running a solo 5k time-trial (at a reasonable hour of the day) within the next few weeks...
Daz--Well done to you too! I couldn't agree more about trying to run fast at 9am. My body simply won't allow it!
Kwaka--Evening parks runs please!!
Xmas Day & NY Day they are starting at 10:00am at South Manchester. So you can have a lie in!
J8-thank you for the invite last night, your evening was sooooooooooo much better than the one which was planned for tonight but has to be cancelled because GBM has no friends.
GBM-well done on coming second-again.
BHB-it might be a miracle if either FOAR or myself came ahead of you, but on the day you never know what's going to happen, it could be that you fall at the start and everyone tramples over you, especially if you get tripped.
Nice one park runners
Minnie6, Mickey6, GBM, WITGB
GBM / WITGB - there's a cake baking in the oven as I type!!
In fact, it looks like a bloody good cake baking in the oven!!! Quite impressed myself!
PPP, a change of plan for me tomorrow. After a run to/from and a parkrun (albeit a leisurely one) followed by a full days shopping I have decided to put my feet up and have a few beers. Will be running sometime, but when I feel like it so can't make specific plans
GBM - bundt cake baked and ready!!
I think I encountered the Blista group as I ran back into Lyme Park this morning. They were moving well and appeared to have just dropped Steve V and the rest of the SK1's who were trailing 200m behind.
Some great views from the tops this morning with bright sun and black clouds. Very muddy out towards Windgather http://www.gmap-pedometer.com?r=5734754
Great parkrunning DTS, GBM and MTBB
hello nice parkrunning folks hope the disley run and cake were good i celebrated a year of running every day earlier in the week and did the stroke assocation 15k trail run in tatton park this am..bit slippy but generally all good
Clairster - You're not normal, you know that don't you ? Well done on your year long streak. Did you set out with this in mind or did it just happen ? Weren't the SK1's Public Enemy's bodyguards/dancers ?
Tonight,when the family are watching I'm A Celebrity, I think I will do an analysis of the local parkruns compared with my 5k PB. It should provide a thrilling insight into the relative difficulty of each.
Can you all wait that long?
SARQ--Thank you but it was only an ok-ish time. It was 13 seconds slower than my Woodbank PB which was set when i wasn't as fit as i am now. I thought i would dip under 19 mins yesterday but didn't due to lack of a warm up / mental strength! Well done on your run. I've heard from a few people that you currently resemble Jabba The Hut so sub 19 is a great effort!
Minnie/Mickey/WITGB/Tim H--Thanks for the run this morning.
Minnie--Thanks for the Bundt, it tasted lovely!
Clairster--Well done on the 365 and 15k!
BHB--That sounds really boring but it is still a far better option than Celebrity/Strictly/X Factor! Does anyone even watch telly anymore?
