Dachs.. Ha! Funnily enough I've been stuck on 49 Park Runs for a few weeks now so popped down to York this morning to earn a free t-shirt. 20.33 was nearly half a minute quicker than Wednesday's effort on a breezy morning so I will take that as progress. BTW you recently said you favoured flat parks etc. If you're ever up this way give it a try - dead flat & very fast. We've already had such luminaries as JohnnyBrownlee, Laura Weightman & Lucy Hall (Team GB Triathlon) trying for fast times not to mention Lord Didsbury & Al P!
A tip for Abbey Dash - if you have a non running helper give them a shirt/fleece to look after for the finish. Runners tend to congregate for a chat on the Town Hall steps post race and it can be bliddy cold up here in November!
Bains.. cracking 5k, puts me to shame!
Stet.. good to see you on the thread again & some solid training in the bank.
Apologies for recent radio silence. During July my legs felt increasingly tired & heavy so I've spent the last 3-4 weeks doing no more that 2-3 runs a week and a bit on the bike. Back to it at the York 5k last night, a very rusty 20:58 from me which is just about what I was expecting after recent inactivity. Nice to back racing though and feeling a bit more spring in the legs. Had a chat with the other TR (middle ground thread), plus PRF & his girlie Hannah. The latter knocked 30 secs off her 5k PB to clock 17:38 and take 1st lesser spotted prize.
Speedy 10k's from SL & Dachs noted. Good to see Padams & Dr Dave getting back to it.
Very pleased for Marigold & Marders, well deserved.
TMap.. nice to see you back, sorry to hear it's been a tough year.
PP.. many congrats on the BMAF silver! BTW saw Steve Hackett's band doing some early Genesis stuff at a festival last weekend. How's this for a setlist, storming performance!
Marigold's latest media stop - Radio 5 around 8:30 this morning.
Sorry to hear about your road incident Padams. I got hit by a car about 6-7 years ago fortunately not at high speed. I skidded across the road after falling just managing to stop before heading into oncoming traffic. Luckily it was winter so I had tracksters and long sleeve top on. Still lost a fair bit of skin but in summer I would have been a stickier mess I reckon. All the best for your recovery, sounds like a frustratingly slow process.
