Well good afternoon. A day out in Newbury today for a nifty little 10K. Was pleased to score just under 50 minutes by watch time, about 15 seconds slower than last time in 2013 but 2 minutes faster than the one before in 2009.
It felt good: conditions were warm but not overly so, Newbury's nice town, and this is the only race I know where you get yer bling at the finish from the mayor in his chain of office. Gave me proper medal envy, that did.
Good day all. Another glorious day for a run, especially as yesterday I was hobbling around the house with burning pains down the back of one leg. I figured it was the sciatic nerve grumbling again, and lots of stretches and a good session on the (zero-impact) rowing machine seem to have sorted it out. All felt good this morning other than a slight twinge in the sciatic and bum area. So I can put my hamstring paranoia away for another day .
7.08 miles done incl a smidge over 6 miles at a fair but still aerobic pace, to the hrm. Newbury 10K on Sunday so didn't want to overdo it, especially after yesterday's episode.
