PPP, you are right I have not lost a minute - I have lost closer to 2! Some mitigating circumstances; my toe giving me some serious jib on the way, during and after and on finishing I didn't feel like I had put much effort in, but still it was a bit of a shocker. I did quite enjoy it though!
A big thank you to everyone who took part in my daughter's experiment; she did her last two runners on Monday. She is sick of the site of that treadmill room.
I assume there will be no long runs on Saturday with Grindleford and Trafford coming up. I could be tempted to try a parkrun to see how much slower I am than 6 months ago. Maybe I will surprise myself, but I think at least 1 minute over 5k.
