The 8th wasnt a Saturday and no one ran 21:49 on the 9th either so you didn't do that parkrun. But as a guide the person who who finished 2nd on the 9th at rushmoor was in the 15-17 category and he ran 18:16 which is fairly good. An 11-14 year old did it in less than 21 mins and that is fairly good too. If you are indeed 16 and did run a times 5k in 21:49 despite being an athlete then I'd say it is below average running for you/ if you exist.
No, somewhat inactive friend. Getting out of bed and making a cup of tea while you have a cold has not made you feel like you've run a marathon in lead boots. Do not attempt to compare to something you have never experienced.
Darling. I don't know how to tell you, but there are a load of rats nesting in the shed.
Yesterday, without telling your, I bought a rat trap and set it on the top shelf in there. Today... the trap is gone. I can't find it.
My imagination runs from the most likely scenario... (that the rat was not nearly killed by the trap ... and it is/was running around with a proverbial millstone round its neck).. to the rather less likely - that the rats disarmed the trap and have got it primed in my bed, or under the toilet seat or something.
Steve (or anyone)... what do you mean by "in line with recent thinking, I'm not convinced of the benefits"
I'm thinking of making the same shoe transition (from Brooks Ravenna) and have been trying to move my foot-strike forwards. My impression is that my speed improves (although I have a niggly feeling that I might actually be putting more effort in... so it might not be sustainable)
What is this 'recent thinking' and do you have any links please? Cheers.
