RFJ - great splits, pouring it on through miles 4 and 5 there.
ale - I was born just other side of East D (HM), so know D well. My sister and dad are still there. Also worked at W'ton, when it still had a hospital.
emzap - I don't do hot either. 20C was too hot for most in local HM
7D congrats on a PB because that's what it is Tom I may now have run longer than 12m but never at 8:04 pace even for part - well done, especially for the last 4 miles
Lots to comment on! Well done RFJ, and nice attitude Emzap. That's not a shabby run, either, Tom!
7D: well done...I not only note the choice of venue, but I so nearly went...however it was such a nice morning I sat in the garden with the paper. If you have a look at 30th on Power of 10 (a club mate) you will see he has dipped under 20 a few time recently...and you beat him! I think you could go quite a bit faster on that course, now that you know it. Its quite quick, but not the fastest, especially with unfamiliarity as it is one of the most complicated about!
OH: I've been a member at OT for about 20 years, but as a kid I was a member at Grace Road. Did you do any sport at Man Uni? I went there too (several decades before you I suspect!) and am still involved with the cross country club. Was in HM last night (Griffin and Crown!)...small world. If you are ever in the vicinity there is now a parkrun from Burnage Rugby Club, which, of course, is in HM! TocH rugby club and the river are at the end of my road. Small world!
Cricket: pleasant and warm...but by the time I got there my team had been skittled out for 75 and the other team played rather patiently to knock the runs off. Then I went for a walk and felt pretty good so included 6 x 40 seconds "run", which was probably the same pace as my walk!
ale Was at Man Uni 79-82 (so probably not several decades after you). This was as part of a split course between St Andrews and Manchester. The time I was at Manchester "Uni" was mostly spent at hospitals in S Manchester (and Kirkcaldy!) so not really part of uni proper. Brother works in Dept Education there (TESOL). However, I'm not a serious competitive athlete and never have been. Only started running in about April 2011.The Crown is at bottom of my father's road - Now rather live far from a pint of Robbie's
OH: meant to say that as a student I spent my first term (1972) in "digs" on Cavendish Rd, HM, and the Crown, was, of course, the first Manchester (or should that be Stockport) pub I ever went to!
late post from me, so belated well dones on the racers (7D & RFJ) plus decent training elsewhere...skipped a run yesterday,was going to do an easy 3 or 4 but had to take youngest swimming training straight from work , too tired when i got home at 9. Fridays often a rest day, and that was my first for 2 weeks so no big deal..Today - 6 miles while youngest at this mornings (swim) training then took her to hurdles session while eldest had debut for ladies hockey team (3rds) , found it a bit tough going but didnt disgrace herself (she is one of two U15s in the team). Came home for hedge trimming, weeding & general garden stuff. finished with a BBQ and a thoroughly deserved magners (or two, or three...)lyric - i think I do
ale Small world indeed!
Busy family day Dustin
