SG - 'Precious Runners' I've got another term for them, but I won't share it with everyone
Been running and in a club for so long now, it's just a way of life - and I agree with Matt, there's always a teeny bit of vanity there - wanting to look slim and feel healthy. Also ego, who doesn't want to try and get one over your rival, or have the best time?
The social side is massive too. Not seen some of the Herne Hillers for a while, so will be good to sit down with a pint (or 2!) after the Surrey league tomorrow at Wimbledon Common.
Good chucklesome stuff on here tonight..more tales of Berkshire types of whom I have no idea who they are!
So the second wettest Luton session tonight in 8 years, 3 weeks after the wettest ever one. Bastard weather. Anyway, 4 x 2k and I thought id take it 75% like I did a week before Berlin..
So it was 6.40 (that was the really torrential rain), then a 6.25. Had to have a poo stop, so I tagged along for the 2nd 1k of the 3rd rep, then did the last one in 6.18. Felt pretty good, but we were on the paths and my crappy old racers didn't give me much support...hence the quads were singing a bit at the end. Contented with that though.
