Not sure what I am doing as yet but hopefully quite a long slow one again! We'll see.
Good luck to racers and parkrunners today and tomorrow.
I've started a wee blog on Facebook on a page called 'Don out and about'. It's just in its infancy just now but I hope to build it into a place for trip reports for the hills and race reports, as well as some photography stuff. If you are on Facebook, check it out and give me a like if you like! https://www.facebook.com/donoutandabout/
Alehouse: "beat as many people as I can in anything I take part in". Rarely do I let people pass me! Probably because I set off nice and steady and run fairly even paced races. Thanks for the line, BR! Aiming for 80% WAVA over 5 or 10k. And if I don't get it I won't shed too many tears: just glad to be running. Would like to run 366 days this year (although nose op may force a re-think!) and at least 2016k,and preferably rather more. Top 100 in my age group rankings would be nice, and i hope to make a difference to the athletes that I advise. And to celebrate the successes on here, of course. Would love to join Hilly in the sub 20 club! Sale Sizzlers anyone? Should be on your list, OL!
AOH D33, Cape Wrath Challenge week, Dirty 30, Dales Trail 30, Snowdonia Mara and a few halves and parkruns. Would be nice to better my half PB (1:55:19 ) 1000 miles in 2016 2016 k in 2016 100 miles/month
BR - "beat as many people as I can in anything I take part in" (BR told me to put that) He likes to be competitive.
Chicksta: Hamburg (17 April) and Prague (8 May) marathons - as close to 3:30 as possible and hopefully a consistent performance in both races
Don wants to get under 38 mins in all four Polaroid 10K events this year
Emzap get back to a sub 25 min 5 km. Run 1678 km (I think that was Pammie's 20.16 miles a week)
Hilly - get back into marathon shape for April 3rd and do the best I can. Get back under 20 mins for 5k, back under 70 mins for 10 miles and enjoy new races.
alehouse, thanks for that. It's a bit different in Scotland where they are crying out for Secondary Maths teachers and it's so easy to get supply in that area. I'm hoping for a decent pension at 55, which will be 32 years of teaching, topped up with supply work on a p/t basis. Just hoping it works!
