SK - well done to your son, I guess it's hard with the same event not to be looking for a PB every time and going to different Park run events would take too much time and planning.
Brilliant time, another PB and a race win for you, you must be collecting a lot of trophies now
Big G - it's so common the shoulder hunching, I think most of us have to remind ourselves to drop our shoulders.
Keith - tough conditions, I don't blame you for declining to start the 30 miler or staying in bed on Sunday!
I was at Tenby, lovely race, we had two torrential showers at 3 miles and at halfway at Pembroke, the 2nd one had us completely drenched, feet and all, but it wasn't cold. Disappointed with my time of 5:07, although that's my 2nd best time on this course, I had a great run there last year.
KK - I like pet rats, just not keen on seeing the wild ones
Good luck tomorrow for your first race of the week.
Big G - I think stopping for an ice cream and a cup of tea is what can make a long run more enjoyable. Good pacing too. Enjoy the beer fest.
Keith - hope it cools down a bit for you, enjoy the junk food!
ET - I haven't read that book (yet).
Re doing intervals without the use of a track, if you pre measure a section of road for the interval distance and another pre measure if you have a recovery distance to run. The distances don't need to be exactly the distance of a track but adjust to the environment. When I do my Hadd test which should be done on 6 laps of a track (2.4km) I have a measured lap of a housing estate which I run twice and that equals the distance roughly (1.56 miles).
mowzer - hope the heat hasn't been too much this week for your multiple marathons, looking forward to the report.
Shopping this morning then driving to Wales for Tenby marathon tomorrow
