Nice parkrun sawney bean
An easyish parkrun for me 21:26 was meant to be slower as had Otmoor 1/2 in the afternoon.... 1:35:50 for a very hot multi terrian race.... not flat out, but then couldn't have done so anyway with the heat....
Good effort there, a very reasonable 5K followed by a HM on the same day. Wow I bet you slept well last night.

Hi Sawney, good run yesterday..... Next race?????? Helping a lady in distress (never again) last saturday by changing her wheel, hence ripped back spent four days in bed, and its still not right....
Would like to do Yeovil 5k on wednesday, but if not right then not going to waste my money..... The club also have a 5k time trial on wednesday, so may be that'll be it.......
Hoy half marathon next weekend. Hoy is one of the smaller Orkney islands and the field is limited to about 100 by ferry capacity. It's a tough course with some serious climbs and the wind is likely to be blowing hard. There are always a few very good runners in the field but I'll be hoping not to be too far behind the leaders.
Following week I'm guaranteeing a PB, 2 races on the calendar of 5.2 and 10 miles and I've not raced either distance before .
One of my friends regularly travels down from Inverness for the Blaydon Race sawney, sounds like quite an event.
Good speed on the park run Sawney Bean.
Not entered any races until injuries clear up. in fact I'm struggling to run two days in a row.
Only 25 miles last week and about 55 (hilly) miles on my bashed up old moutain bike.
I've ordered a road bike through a cycle scheme, which I should have by next week. looking forward to doing a few miles on it to keep fitness up.
I find at age 45 all 3 can be trouble...
But here in the far north the wind is always screwing things up. Weather OK in Hoy so far though.
Sawney - dont think it works anymore, I have had some issues with messaging.... using Fetcheveryone work well with messaging though.
Steady Parkrun yesterday in 19:40 and 13m today in 1:50 in the rain.....
Sawney - thats a tasty 5k time well done
19:26 for me today same as last week, consistancy at least.....
Hi guys. Only read the first and last few pages due to depression rapidly setting in! Started running fairly seriously about 18 months ago (I'm just 42) after a longish layoff (20 years). In the meanwhile my weight has gone from 70k to 95kg. So I'm a slow, injury prone, over-pronator.
My goal is a 45 minute 10k (current PB just under an hour). Don't fancy anything much longer due to the amount miles required each week... and the complaints of the other half.
Doing quite a few races (Tees Barrage 10k, Rabey Castle 10k, Coniston Mini Marathon, Darlington 10k and the odd parkrun) but not sure this is the right strategy. Maybe I should concentrate on the miles to get the weight off and increase the fitness as the races seem to break the rhythm somewhat.
Thoughts and support welcome.
