Unfortunately I will be the A runner as the normal A runner cannot make it anyway I'll give my best shot.

I am aiming for sun 16.30!!

That well may win it.... certainly in the league I ran that would have been 1st or 2nd... all the best

Rob- I did one last year as a time trial with my club.... Won in a time of 18.40  Only problem was I can't run & keep proper note of the laps I did... Ended up doing an extra lap til someone flagged me down!

 How many other runners are there?  Bunching, tripping & lapping slower runners may be factors that come into play.

 I'm sure a speed merchant like yourself will be fine    Just save a bit for the last 200metres.

All the best!

Well done Rob!  Did you have a kick at the end & did you lap anyone?
10/09/2011 at 20:56
To be honest I found it tough and thank Gog I didn't need to kick as about 6/7 secs behind and I did lap a guy from Gateshead (what's happened to such a wonderful club he was their A runner)

Sorry I meant God not Gog

Excellent running Rob. Hope a few youngsters were trailing in behind you feeling jealous.

I'd never run 12.5 laps before my training group tried it a few weeks back as a max effort run. My 18.21 was mainly due to one of the guys leading us lap after lap at our target pace, I tried not to think about what I was doing and wouldn't have had a clue how many laps were done without my Garmin. Sadly my parkrun times since (on flat, grass) have been nearly a minute slower so either the soft surface is tougher than it feels(but good training for the cross country season I guess) or I need to stop missing my interval sessions.

Don't beat yourself up too much 57.5. Track is always quicker than road/grass/trail because of smooth & level surface
18/09/2011 at 20:06

57.5 - Im faster on the track than on grass / road....
