Trini and Sportaloo - good running.
Thanks for the congrats etc., although I feel a bit of cheat as, on reflection, I don't think I put as much effort into today's run as I could have. I suppose that posting a time like I did is rather encouraging on that basis, but I feel like I should have tried harder.
In a feat of good organisation and efficiency, Highworth Running Club have already posted the results. Apparently, I came 117 out of 434 finishers. That's almost into the top quarter - I've never come close to that before!!! If I'd run 15 seconds quicker, I'd have reached that landmark!
On reflection, I ran a pretty good time without trying too hard, which is encouraging when I think about the Tewkesbury Half in 3 weeks. I was comfortable getting to the 4M mark at 7.12 pace and could have kept going at that speed if it wasn't for the big hill that got in the way. Even then, I finished at well under 10k PB pace. On a flat course, who knows what I could have done?
9 (*estimated) miles in 1:05 easy running. Normally a tempo session, but didn't feel like it. Pleasant enough though. Am still wearing my finisher's T shirt to prove that I'm 'ard. It'll be old hat by Monday.
Nice run SGQ, I almost contemplated joining you before a reality check struck home.
Got a thumping great bill from D1's swimming club. It makes our sport look cheap. In fact, it makes golf look cheap. Perhaps I should persuade her to take up helicopter flying or offshore power boating?
TR- I think that the answer is 2:45 unless you chop off your willy, when it's 3:15.
want this bike!!!
fl, wish you better
ironmel, sorry to hear about your break up, never easy, but you sound as though you have a lovely life out there, keep strong
TR - I think you'd miss it for quick directional tinkling...
left this late, no time to read back....will do so tomorrow when I get time
fingers crossed, I may be a going concern again.
Managed 7 miles Friday night in something outside 51 mins; could feel the calf the following day though.
Tonight, got out and seemed to be moving OK without feeling the calf at all. So got greedy and went for 11.4, which I achieved in just over 84 mins. HR a bit high, but possibly because I might be carrying a mild bug (can feel something in the throat), plus there's no shortage of stress from other sources at the moment.
Calf being iced as a precautionary measure, but all being well, hope to bag some more cautious mileage tomorrow.
