PPP - Are you in at all today for me to pick up the watch strap? Or is there anywhere you could leave it if you're out?

Bargain alert......that parkrun mud is beyond a joke, but it turns out that Sweatshop in Hyde has sale prices on XC spikes. Evnn some old models which must have bee lost at the back of the store room and are marked down as low as a fiver. Got to worth a look at that price.

not the same epic importance as GBM's sub-3 mara, but I went sub-80 at Preston 10M this morning - 1:19:59, oh yes

my splits were all over the place though - might post them later if they're not tooo embarrassing...

Well done Daz! When are you having a crack at a marathon?

18/11/2012 at 18:42

Daz--Well done!! 1.19.59 is Hollywood stuff and much more important than my sub 3  that even i'm bored of now!

18/11/2012 at 18:54

Daz - What a great day for racing, well done.

PPP - I called to collect the watch strap, thanks. There was no car on the drive so I didn't knock on. Don't want you thinking I was being anti-social!

18/11/2012 at 23:33

it was indeed perfect race weather: cool, sunny, no wind
you'd think 1:19:59 would indicate some under-conrol/regular splits, but er... no!
7:36 - oops!
7:56
8:03
8:19 (slight amount of uphill)
7:59 for 39:53 at halfway
8:00
8:14
8:14 (oh deary me, couple of dodgy miles, 21 secs over, need a couple of 7:50's to finish, and it's that blasted "uphill" mile coming  )
8:06 (not bad, but need to finish in 7:30ish  )
7:32 - held this last mile together remarkably well - this "training" lark really works! - looked down at my watch just after crossing the chip mat (had started it as I crossed the mat at the start) to see 1:20:01 so anxious wat til official resultswent up... paged nervously down the results... past 1:20 gun time... there's my name... 1:20:14... chip time... 1:19:59

can now aim for sub-1:45 for half-mara, but still no desire to do a full

DTS- superb! Jonahesque effort that!

JS- glad you got it OK, was a bit worried one of the kids had moved it.
19/11/2012 at 09:26

Great running DTS.  I can't imagine there'll be many last mile=fastest mile stories from S10.

19/11/2012 at 09:28

That's a good time BHB but you appear to have lost to a child?

19/11/2012 at 13:02

Thanks for pointing that out RB.  I guess it depends which way you look at it...he could have been thinking "I can't be beaten by someone old enough to be my Dad"!

I possibly should have beaten him but he flew up the steps on the last lap whilst I tip-toed up them like a wimp.  I guess he created a 20 metre gap (as he also did on the first lap, so I had been warned).  Waiting for PPP or someone else to give it a go - interested to see how others run it. 

DTS, those splits aren't too inconcistent and to run the fastest time for your last mile is always a good thing.

Manchester marathon relay- might be fun to get a team together for stockport!
