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,

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

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;
BOGOTH
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

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).

BHB/OMOTH - just looked at results - didn't realise you'd WON!

Next XC is Wythenshawe Park 1st Dec.  I find fell shoes (e.g. Innovs / Walsh / Running Bear) best for Machester League as there is often a few bits that are hard ground.  Also you get more grip going downhill.  I have Innov X-talon this year.  Trail shoes would be ok at Wythenshawe but on muddier courses you can end up carrying a lot of mud.  XC times aren't great really but OK for me and JMC when we can claim it's a family activity.

Don't forget the Stockport 10 meeting tonight!
12/11/2012 at 12:31

Seagull- I would go out tonight but I haven't got a stitch to wear.

12/11/2012 at 13:18
Oh very funny. Don't even think about it, you know what I'm talking about!
12/11/2012 at 13:38
I don't know which is the more exciting prospect; another clip of ES dancing or Mort naked.

Either would beat another graph from the BOS though.
12/11/2012 at 14:17

Seagull- I haven't got the technical expertise to do it but maybe GBM has.He knows so much about these things.........

12/11/2012 at 14:43
ES- time to...Panic
12/11/2012 at 15:03

PPP--I've just had a look and i'm afraid the quality is very poor. It's grainy and its difficult to tell whats going on. The video of Eric dancing is rubbish too! 

 

12/11/2012 at 16:05

Is this the video you are talking about?
