JCG I would need to run 3.45 to get a GFA which is tempting or would be if I had been training for a Spring marathon. I am really looking for a place in 2018 when I am 60. When is Manchester and is it flat?
Off to Spain tomorrow for a relaxing week on the beach. I will take my running kit this time as there will be space in our rather relaxed (non) schedule and I don't want my pace to disappear as it did on my last holiday. I have only one more attempt at cracking 23 mins for my Parkrun when I get back then it is Strictly all the way to Christmas.
Parkrun this morning. Set out attempting a new pb. After a while I realised my watch was giving wildly inaccurate readings and was going to be no use to ma whatsoever.
This was a real shock and disappointment. I can't remember a time when I ran without a watch. Amazingly I was only 9 seconds outside my pb. With a working watch I would almost certainly have got a new pb. I should be disappointed but feel quite good about running my own pace!
