Nice one running around the serpentine, we done that for the Capital fm 10k.

I'm just a couple of mins from the Bush as well.

I've also done a few laps around Holland Park and the steep pedestrian bit off the Holland Rd up to the park, that's my hill training sorted!

Only do flat runs. Hill training for me is climbing the steps to my seat at Loftus road!

I sit in Ellerslie and got cramp in my calf muscle last season. Evening game against Sjoke.
Not too much room to stretch the leg, I was in agony!!!

Don't have a season ticket but would be in either Lower Loft or South africa Road. doing any of the preseason games? Still umming and ahhing about Iran. Oh and a running question, what sort of weekly mileage and long runs are you doing?

Until last week I hadn't been able to do anything due to straining my back couple of weeks before that.

So have just started again really which was why I thought the run on the 31st might have come too soon for me but I'm gonna give it a go anyhoos.

Distances? Not sure how far Kew to Hammersmith is ( 3 miles maybe? ) But I've started out with that and trying to complete it twice a week.

Also fitting in some cycling to work to mix up the training a bit.

The real long one ( for me ) run I try to do is from Twickenham Bridge to Hammersmith.
I think thats just over 5 miles, might have to do that next week

Footie - Can't make the Iran game but am going to the Charlton one on Tues 26th.

Same here a 3 mile cycle each way to work and a 5 miler now and again. But the bulk now is club runs.

If I don't do Iran will defo go to Charlton.

Just back after a half-hour run, yikes it's hotter than hell out there, hope that sun takes a break on July 31st or we're in for a morning of excess with sunscreen and water.

Morning All,

Completed a 38 min slow jog yesterday but the heat was quite something and this was just after 6pm, thought my head was gonna explode!

Well done Hoops.

Couldn't run last night, just too hot, so was out this morning at 6am. It was perfect temperature and managed 3.7m in 37 mins, with hills.

Cheers Sezz

Wish I could run that early in the morning but it's hard enough getting up for work never mind going for a run with the added penalty of hills!!!!

I can't find a website for this race or previous results. Does anyone have this sort of information e.g. course record?
