Well done vixx! Good work on the circuits Deva Duck, I need to get doing some more conditioning for the bits running doesn't necessarily reach.....

Parkrun done - 24:56, took a minute off my 5k PB so well chuffed with that, even had a sprint finish in me this time which I was very pleased with..... especially as I felt bloody awful and nearly quit after the first mile! Probably went off slightly too quick really but having done so gave me the base... 5k is a funny old distance, so short but so hard!

Wabo: Well done

MissB jumped 1metre yesterday for the high jump. We'd a technical discussion last night on 'the take off plant of the foot when jumping'

08/05/2013 at 13:21

Cool birkmyre - I was no good at high jump. For me think discus, shot, javelin (and when I reached 18, hammer)

WELL DONE on the weight loss Wabo - I could do with losing some..... :S
