Pete, you need to do more races clearly, is there any midweek stuff you can do? Maybe a tempo on the Friday before a parkrun and target race
Bus nice win. No need for disclaimers, you beat what was there!
Car in for MOT/work today, got to sample your namesake, erm..Mr Bus. Gorgeous super long trip. Shame it's not really runnable to this location, as it's runnable on distance. (too many dangerous roads!)
I think i'd just go to a country to visit generally, but 5k seems a distance pretty doable whatever your state is.
Tomorrow is a conundrum, both footy teams are playing 180-290miles away, not going to either, so no need to get up early, so can i be bothered to get up at 7ish to get a parkrun in, when a lot of the rest of the day will be dossing about? Versus a nice once a week lie in?
It would be an insane one. But the super short distance, and time of stay would probably work. I used to look at those do a half marathon in some random location trips, and then think, wait a min, why do something so knackering on top of the travel.
We had 3 work trips to play footy in Holland, setting off from here at about 5am, and literally being on the pitch about 30mins after arriving at the venue. Funnily, we were always toilet in the first game!
