AR - I think lots of people find Dec good for training as there is plenty of time off depending on one's job. Also an insurance policy again a busy or very snowy January
Impressed as ever with PMJs organisation. Bound to pay dividends.
Final scores from Newcastle Minni - 1.39.15, 1st F40, 18th overall, good run, priority must be to convert in London Poacher - 3.22.09, 7th, 1st V50, happy with that, got a mara double in a fortnight's time though...
joined Poacher for his last two laps. Complaining a lot but really pushing on. And there was a sprint finish from him.
Complaining because (a) full of running but legs really suffering on the tarmac, not raced on a hard surface for ages, and (b) stupidly allowed myself to be persuaded by Minni into a pointless sprint finish, uphill and into the wind. A bit rich coming from someone who can't even find her own car
Quick drop in; DS2 - best wishes at a difficult time Leslie - welcome, those are big miles. I work daft hours too, and in a range of locations, there are always creative ways to train round such things Nice runs Lorenzo, Gul, OO, BOTF Nice lunch Ant, although it's hard to disagree with PMJ Get well soon CC, Joolska, GM Nice plods Moof, Menna
And above all congrats to Minni on a very good performance at Newcastle Racecourse today in windy, trying conditions. I'll let the thread wino tell her own story at leisure.
Not sure of my result, forgot the Garmin (although remembered to take socks this time), I think it was 6th in about 3.22 or 3.23. 16 laps, each of which ended into a cold, strong headwind along the finishing straight. Next stop the glue factory. Happy with the time though under the circs. 55m for the week.
