GBM that's a great time, I managed a 18.59 at burnage just behind bhb who took the win. Not a bad course, not quick but a decent course. We did end up helping out at the end.

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

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

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? 

11/11/2012 at 19:20

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?

I can assume you are all logging in to see my analysis, so here it is.  It assumes that my fitness levels have been about the same across my parkruns, which is probably OK. For Burnage, I have only run the proper course twice and could probably knock a chunk of my current best, but for now have assumed a 10 second improvement.  I haven't run Marple. I have run Wythenshawe once but that was the old course so haven't counted that.

  1. PB course Christleton. 16:54
  2. Soutch Mcr.                17:29 (+35 secs)
  3. Bramhall (old course)   17:32 (+38 secs)
  4. Bramhall (new course) 17:32 (+58 secs)
  5. Woodbank                  18:09 (+1min 15 secs)
  6. Burnage                      18:30 (+1min 36 secs)

And below is what the difference is in %age terms. (Fingers crossed this pastes OK).

So there you have it. Some useless information to fill the time before MoTD comes on, 

11/11/2012 at 21:49

Bramhall new is actually 17:52...and Rylan is a knob!

11/11/2012 at 21:58

We all had our fingers crossed then OMo'TH- how would we have got to sleep tonight otherwise? It would have been the most interesting thing I have seen today had I not had the privilege of viewing a video of a drunken Harrier 'dancing' to 'This Charming Man'

Althete formerly known as Alpha Male - can you do another graph illustrating the development of your thread name from the original Alpha Male through a variety of versions to the most recent and appropriate one I would like to suggest;
Boring old git of the Heatons?

By the way, my OH has noticed how hard you have been training and has seen you around a lot, although she thinks you look a bit slower than you used to.
11/11/2012 at 23:45

It's amazing what wife's get up to when the OH is in France

12/11/2012 at 07:33

mtbb - it started off as a bit of an accident then became a mission!

12/11/2012 at 08:32

Clairster that is a great streak.  What now though?  Stop or plough on?  Hasn't Ron Hill run every day since 1964?

BOGOTH - how could you be that much slower at Burnage?  It's flat as a pancake.  Nov 24th would be a good day for your Marple parkrun debut.

PPP - where were you at Sherdley Park?  JMC's vets dream team has a bit of work to do in the rest of the season to challenge the mighty Wilmslow.

12/11/2012 at 08:47

Yeah... disappointing turn out at Sherdley Park in the over 40's category. SARQ, PPP, ES, BHB, GBM, J8, FOAR, etc... you should be ashamed of yourselves. Even if you only did one race each it would help.

12/11/2012 at 09:09

PPP, it was Alfa as in the car. 

RB, I think it is the flight of steps that you have to go up twice together with the underfoot conditions, tight turns and the fact that it has not been competitive at the front of the race when I have done them. 

JMC, fair cop.  Saturday lunch times are not very good for me though.  Will try to make at least one. Do you need spikes or will trail shoes do the job? 

12/11/2012 at 09:20
JMC- I was in Paris with the school as I have already stated! But surprised to see so many others not doing it.

BOGOTH - maybe you could be BOS (Bag Of Spanners) instead, because this seems to be how Alfa Romeos are referred to in the motor trade and kind of describes your running gait?

RB - Burnage is a pretty twisty, slow course IMO. (I am thinking of doing it soon so better get the excuses in early).
