Not really wanting to get involved with the whole immigrant things, I find it slightly ironic that after arriving from Afghanistan having travelled through the civilised land that is Belgium they end up in Basildon via Tilbury.
That Bavarian Stein looked great training B2B - B2B did you see a guy had done that Prudential 100 on a Boris Bike!!
slinger not sure if a 41 minute run would count as a recovery run to be honest.
Well done everyone on getting out though and on a the parkrun pbs
Inspired by watching as much of the Euro athletics last week, some great performances from the British Lads and Lasses.
Been a bit windy on Essex's sunshine coast over the past few days - after Fridays rest day - I managed a nice 6 miler Saturday, and Sunday the planned 12 miles turned into - another rest day - the weather really was pretty naff and before I knew it I was waking up again in time to watch the mens marathon. Before making an excuse not to get out in the garden in the afternoon so I could watch the 5K and relays -
Finally, perhaps buoyed by the rest day SUnday, did a hard 5 yesterday followed by a slightly tired 6 this morning.
Didn't know there was a Premier Inn in the Heathway. I know the Rabbits and second Avenue. I once,( actually twice) stopped the filming if the funeral scene of Four Weddings and a Funeral). They were filming in my evening running route.
Lol, I moved to London Road at the end of 1989. There was a new development just before the roundabout.
Used to run from what was Barking Tech, opposite the Robin Hood. Round through Barking and down Ripple Road. Would be flying along the A12, down to the Heathway and back up to the college. Did you ever do the Dagenham Town Show Half.
