Off for a trial run with Wrexham AAC tonight and will do a track session on Thursday. Gotta do summat to motivate myself, weather and slight niggles are becoming easy excuses.

Lorenzo & Minni - This conjoined avatar posting thing is getting slicker

Just stuck my entry for Lake Vyrnwy Half in post - something to plan for at least.

Ant - the ones I ended up with were £10 for adults and £5 for U16s - I guess you could argue that paying to stand by the side of the road when they have it for free in the Tour de France is a bit of a rip-off, but there you go - apparently you get to hear the commentary as well on the PA system.

Don't think that there are any more tickets left judging by the lack of success that other colleagues in the office had but there should be plenty of spectator viewing point on the flat and downhill sections. Are you planning on being over for it?

About to hop back on the bike again, but may well be on 2 legs again (at least for a short blast) tomorrow morning

Lorenzo - An Ayrton? Well, I suppose it could've been worse, but they have got a bit of a cheek. The people's games, my a**e.

I'm taking a group of kids (teenagers, in fact) over to England for the month of July - to Southport, to be precise, like last year. I'm actually really looking forward to it, and just hope I'll be running again by then. Who's up for a run on Southport Sands and over Birkdale/Hillside links?

I went adventuring in parks I've never bothered to go into tonight. I discovered a path that connects two of them via the back of B&Q's car park, and that Doctor and the Medics are playing a free festival in one of them in June.

Ant - I'll be up in Leyland, just south of Preston overnight on Monday 2 July. If you were thinking about a morning run, I'm not sure how easy it'll be to get over to Southport, go for a run and then be back in time for a meeting but worth thinking about.

Might be a window of opportunity on the Monday evening though.

When do you arrive?
29/05/2012 at 21:21

Wait for it....on Monday 2 July!

I wouldn't rule out a run the next morning, though, if you really could make it - it would have to be early, though. Hang on, I'm talkng to the man who, in true Four Yorkshiremen tradtion, gets up half an hour before he goes to bed. Well, as you say, definitely worth thinking about.

5k pb for me tonight at the Bridge Inn 5k race.  Ran with only distance showing again to try and run by perceived effort and splits were relatively even: 6.08, 6.18, 6.19 and 35s to bring up 19.20 or thereabouts.  OK, so my old pb (19.58) was ridiculously soft and there to be broken, but it's over a year since I ran a pb at any distance, so I'll take it!

Jools - great stuff. Impressively consistent splits as well.

Ant - let's chat closer to the time. Do you fancy coming along to see a caravan manufacturer afterwards?! 

29/05/2012 at 21:48

Well done Jools! A PB on a Tuesday night! Sub-19 beckons...

29/05/2012 at 21:50

Lorenzo - x-post - Oooh, yes, please!

29/05/2012 at 22:01

Wel done, Jools - running by feel triumphs again !

29/05/2012 at 22:03
Brilliant Jools!

Might have to bin the idea of a run tomorrow morning as I'm currently sitting in my car waiting to pick elder Lorenzito up after he's been playing in a concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

Proud but tired Dad!

Windy - I haven't a clue what the Kimberley is, but good to hear from you.
Lorenzo - You can't beat Dastardly and Muttley - except for Klunk and Zilly, of course. BTW You have a very talented family.
Speedy - you just never know what you're going to find, do you?
Joolska - congratulations on the PB.
3 easy miles this morning and I think I felt a spot of rain.

30/05/2012 at 07:10

Congrats on the PB Joolska, did it feel easy or were you at the limit?

I took a rest last night- felt quite naughty when conditions were perfect

30/05/2012 at 08:18

I was definitely working rather than cruising, but it didn't feel as fast as I thought 6.14m/m would feel, if that doesn't sound contradictory!  Certainly adds fuel to my theory that I've allowed the thought of racing much faster than 6.30m/m to become a mental block.

30/05/2012 at 08:21
Well done Jools! Great work. Are you,like others, also planning a "summer of speed"?
30/05/2012 at 08:39

Dr & The Medics...Amazing what you find behind B&Q nowadays!!!

Well done on the new PB Jools.  Very consistent pacing without the watch.

I attempted a run last night, a first for just over 3 weeks.  No joy.  After about 600m I felt my knee twinge again so promptly stopped and walked home.  Getting frustrated now with the lack of progress.  Physio did say that it could take up to or beyond two months to sort out so it looks as though my marathon fitness will be lost for another year!!

It's English, Jim, but not as we know it. Er, wtf?
