ImpeyI can see you're not happy to be just running at 70+. That was a decent race. MickCan't see much wrong with your race. Good time, good age group placing. Good age grading too. You need races to get race fit.If a race start is very crowded I always do the first mile too quickly. I keep trying to overtake people.JJ
NZCWise move not to compete!TraceyQuite a good 5k for a test run.JJ
Good going Tracey!
Mick - good luck for your next 10km - hopefully that 2nd guy in your agegroup will be running and you'll reverse the positions.
Agree with you all, very stupid doing that run with the boys on Sunday, now I'm paying for it. Didn't run yesterday and my left hamstring near my bum is giving me gip!
Awful day here this morning - raining and miserable. Mae looks like she is not moving off her bean bag, shame she didn't stay asleep during the night! Worse than a baby!
Torque Steer/Mick - nice recovery runs btw
JJ - getting my speed back as previous 5k at parkrun last month was 28:54.
Rained yesterday, raining today.
Tracey, what is it you're trying to get when you get question marks instead?
NZC - oh dear, oh dear. Sit sideways on an ice-pack?
Traceygood even splits for your 10 miles. Not so even for the 5K - it takes a lot to make up for starting a bit slowly even though it hurts to go for it from the off!!!
Mick6That's always a problem when racing in mixed groups - you can never spot the opposition!!
NZCthat'l larn you
Run tonight is oop in Wharfedale - I suspect it will be long and hilly whilst being surrounded by lovely countryside so I am keeping my powder dry - and trying to stretch my hip flexor
TS - the first mile of my 10 miler would have been faster, just traffic crossing the road
Mile reps last night. Did them just about without recoveries, as there were so many horrible tiny flies swarming around. Didn't actually time the miles, and the warm-up & cool down sections were a little under the mile, but definitely in the 8 somethings. Grandsons here today, so a NRD
Carp day weatherwise.DianaYou'll be just as tired as you were after those mile reps.JJ
Just over 3 miles with the running club last night. It had been raining all day, and was still raining steadily when we ran, so off-road was not attempted; we went around town a bit, taking in a few hills (the rest of them did 2 reps up each hill, I did one, then set off back down until I met the front runners, then turned round and followed them back up). There were only 6 of us. 8 or 10 is usual, up to 15 or 20 in really pleasant running conditions. But some of them had been doing a 100-miler over the weekend, so not surprised they weren't there.
- to Tracey.
TraceyI always start a long run with a slow warming up one so I wasn't surprised to see itMy comment was aimed at your 5K pace where you sort of drifted into it!!
Dianaprotein on the wing - yuck!! There are a lot of the little critters about just now - at least we have had steady wind which tends to disperse them a bit.Mile reps - way to go!!
ColumbaI suppose a 100 miler is a suitable excuse for missing training just once!!
We had a lovely evening for running - sun popped out occasionally through cloud cover and the Dale looked even better for it - even the hills looked almost pleasant!!Trail mainly on grass, in places through proper meadows with a profusion of wild flowers and woods thick with bluebells, which helped take some of the sting out of the tough 5 miles covered although the pain in my butt increased as time went on - hence a no run day today
TS - nearly jumped up and down on my sub 9 min mile ????
Went club last night a help a club mate run her first 5 miler???? Now Jane is doing 5 mile race on Saturday, which makes it it'll worth while????
Must stop using smiley faces of my iPhone.
Good Morning,We seem to have the same yuky weather here. It is supposed to clear up by the weekend when the temperature is supposed to hit 30c. I am opening my pool today.
Diana,Well done on the mile reps. We have those little black flies as well but ours bite!
NZC, TS,You have my sympathy with the butt pains. I find sitting seems to make it worse.
Legs seem to have recovered and my heels are back to their normal low moaning state so a 10k hilly run is scheduled tonight with a couple of friends, weather permitting. A thunder storm has been forecasted so we may postpone.
Mick6good to hear you are back to a low moaning state. I have quite forgotten what a pain free body feels like!You are right about sitting - I have to get up and stretch every hour just to keep it at bay. Annoying thing is it is not my "normal" back pain but something quite different.
Weather is now offically carp here - heavy rain, mist and low cloud. At least it's not cold!!!
Not a good day. We have a wedding to go to on Saturday so I escorted MrsJJ on a shopping expedition because the wedding's in Chelsea and she has nothing to wear. I suggested maybe she should wear nothing but it wasn't well received.For those of a literary bent, I shall be going in yellow hose and cross gartered. A a club colleague of mine called Eric who some of you have met and who is 75 ran the Westminster Mile on Sunday in celebration of his having run the first one 50 years ago. He ran 7:11. He reckons it's a bit disappointing because 50 years ago he ran a marathon at 5:30 miling.TSIf it's any consolation I have permanent, but random, tweaks and twinges if I take any form of exercise. MickA low moan is OK. it's when it becomes a shout you need to worry.JJ
There has been a run of those recently.
...a theme I'm rather fond of.

awsuseful hill for running up behind the village
another wet, misty day here and another HRD to boot - this month is petering out with a whimper - as my butt is still painful.May have to get the cricket ball out and give the ITB a massage - now that's something to look forward to, not
I have just decided that I cannot risk sitting in the car for many hours driving to Bristol and back on Monday for a meeting and have booked a rail ticket - sheer extortion!!!!
