BHB - I think you're safe other than Andy Green, Mike Hatton and maybe half a dozen Wilmslow V50s.

I was well beat by Graham Green - Andy's V48 brother.  LOL plod

RB, that Dunham Massey 5k is odd.  The second running is the same route run in the reverse direction, but seems to be a lot quicker.  What's going on there?

Mike Hatton, that would be the guy I beat at Bowden last time we were in the same 5k race.  

It is a fact that Wilmslow have a lot of good V50s - must be something in the water - headed by Graham Macneil it seems, who is a little too fast for me.  What happened to Trevor Morris though?  He and I ran near identical times at a lot of 5k/ 10k races, but not seen him this year.

Graham in good form and targeting local races.  Trevor was injured but is now back.  Last I heard he was putting in some big reps with Stu Doyle ahead of a comeback race at Platt Fields or somewhere.  Malcolm always dangerous.  Stuart P possibly fastest of all if he ever gets fixed.

The traditional Dunham Massey course goes up the main drive 3 times - very slight incline but feels up by the 3rd time and usually into the wind.  The reverse course goes down the main drive 3 times usually with the wind behind.  10-20s faster at 17 min pace.  Last night it appeared that most of that was gained in a very fast start - which left me behind.

Anybody doing Lyme park on Sunday morning?

GBM - I'll see you at Hazel Grove station in the morning

Off to see my youngest art exhibition at Manchester university tonight, one proud dad

Well done to the Dunham racers as well as to the 14 Harriers on the winning BUPA Club Challenge team. Wish I had been fast enough to be one of the 'counters'!

Enjoy your daughter's exhibition, Jonah. Re: Sunday, I see that RB is leading a group from the Boars Head at 8am for about 2 hrs at what I thinked he described as a comfortable pace, heading towards Bollington.

J8- we will join you at Lyme Park-8.30?

14/06/2013 at 19:25

Sorry I can't do the Boars Head this Sunday.  Just been told I'm taking mini-Bob hill training - at Lyme Park!

14/06/2013 at 21:50

RB- you can both join us!

The good news! I did the Hayfield Junior School Fair Fell Race last night. Nice 3 mile route over Lantern Pike. I came 7th overall and won the V40 category which would usually be impressive but only about 25 runners did the race.  

The bad news! Immediately after the race i had a go at the penalty shoot-out competition and injured my right quad taking the first penalty. No running for me for a few days. Hoping to be fit for Round the Resers on Weds.

Immediately after the race i had a go at the penalty shoot-out competition and injured my right quad taking the first penalty (but still carried on and took the next 2 because I was showing off in front of small children) No running for me for a few days. Hoping to be fit for Round the Resers on Weds, (where I will no doubt injure myself again)

To be fair i did take the third penalty with my left foot due to the agonising pain in my right leg! 

 

15/06/2013 at 14:25

GBM-it sounds like you're a right pain

Minnie-back from Michelle's wedding in Italy (Lake Garda/Verona/Florence) which is now my favourite place
