lol wow thats fast!! Guess i wont put in then this time lol oh well....

There will be other chances for people that really want to do it, plenty of club, charities and competition places up for grabs I'm sure. I think runners world usually do something for it actually.

I did an easy 4 miles run this morning, I'm tapering for next Sundays half marathon, so just taking it easy.

My plan for this week is 6 tonight, 6 Thursday, 3 sat and then the Black sticks Blue 10K on Sunday,

Got a course PB at ParkRun on Saturday 20:21 so, i was pleased with that. I think the previous Sundays run into the wind at Fleetwood helped that to come about.

Was a bit wet out last night!! - But the weather is predicted to be ok on Sunday, which is good news for us runners - Racing or Training.

10/05/2013 at 15:55

The weather is crazy this week! I did a 8 miler on Monday that nearly melted me it was that warm. Not been out since thanks to an emergency dentist visit and a dose of antibiotics (plus the rain which added to my general feeling-sorry-for-myself state), but was pleased with a 2013 best at parkrun last week (and only 7 seconds off my PB). 

Looking forward to preston parkrun's first birthday tomorrow- am feeling on the mend so going to see if I can get near last week's result again. 

Hope everyone has a good weekend of racing/training

Emergency Dentisit visit!! Thats not good Lou!!

Yes you had a good run at ParkRun last week, think on the third lap, when you get to that down hill part towards the end, that's when you start building up your pace. Then go up another gear when you to the bridge near the finish line and then move up to a sprint when you get to the line of trees leading to the finish

Good luck and i hope the cakes turn out ok!!

Thanks! My kitchen currently looks like a bomb has exploded... 

Yeah dentist visit wasn't good- had an infected wisdom tooth
