I ran the Brockenhurst parkrun this morning and we had a really good turn out, 145 runners. It was quite hot and it was difficult to get into my stride. I ran 24.10, an average pace of 7.50, 72.97 WAVA and 33rd.
Columba, I never saw that challenge on fetch, I'll look out for the next one. I've never tried to hold for more than 5 minutes as I don't think that it would be any more beneficial. Glad to hear that your knee is improving, and that you are taking it easy.
Thanks for the warning re EA registration card Aquarius, I haven't got mine yet, so I will check it when it arrives.
WtnMel, well done with your pace during the handicap and Westonbirt 10k, I'm sure that is quicker than when you joined us a year or so ago. Good luck with the Ridgeway Run.
Welcome back Matsmum, I was afraid that you had abandoned us! Great respect for getting up at 4.30 and out jogging with your dog. I hope that you do manage to run a marathon next year when you are 70. I'm doing the New Forest Marathon in September. JJ is still around, but hasn't posted on here for over a year. It's also a very long time since we heard from Exhausted, so I don't know how she is.
Watched a very exciting tennis match between Andy Murray and a Frenchman who was, I think, seeded 150, this afternoon, which went to 5 sets, right down to the wire. Andy won, but he wasn't playing at his best.
