Howdy I hope the marathon went well Joe. Was 3:30 your 'A' target (PB), your 'B' target (a training race), or 'C' (burn the trainers if I don't get it)?
Dustin, it looked like a good day for the mud.
Happy Park Runs peeps, I am wondering whether the whole Park Run phenomenon will actually start to benefit the general race times of GB athletes. The more you race, the better you get. The larger the pool of people in the improvers category, the more there will be in the next one, until the elite system catches the best of them.
Saturday is bike day. 1 degree C when I set off. 60 miles, and I think that I was riding solidly, even challenging for some of the hill tops. You've got to have a bit of fun. The legs held on, despite yesterday's run.
Work schedules meant two blank days, but a home day today. Sadly, it involved a full day's work too. However, I did manage to sneak in a nice 11 mile run. It was glorious, and just flowed. I didn't want to push because I've not done anything longer than that, and I'm biking tomorrow as well.
Nice to read back and catch up on everything else. (No to lyrics)
My old touring bike is happy as a no hander. It's something to do with an easier angled down tube, and most definitely to do with the distance between the centre line of the front axle and the extended centre line of the steerer tube. That used to be easy to see, as steel forks were bent at the end. Nowadays the carbon shape hides what little there is. Anyway, I find the bike twitchy, but I did miss out 30 years of bike developments.
