Tough day out for the OCT crew - hopefully you'll get through it next time round with a bit more prep.
TB - the BMAF Road Relays were a good day out, as always. The format changed slightly this year, with 3 separate starts rather than 2. This meant that the V55 division ran with just the V65s as opposed to running with the larger V35 and V45 divisions, so it was a lot less congested at the start and changeovers.
I ran the first leg in 19.05, which was far from my best but better than last year's 19.21. Tim Hargreaves followed in about 19.40 and gained a place to 22nd, and David Chrystie-Lowe then ran a respectable 20.16 and dropped a place to 23rd, which is where we finished.
TB - how are you doing? Heard you may have gone down to London but didn't run.
DTS - I'd like to do ST but with the Masters Relays on Sat, I'm going to give it a miss. Knee still not 100%. Are you going to Wincle Trout again this year at the end of May? If so, I'll see you there.
Good luck to the OCT runners this weekend - big challenge!!
I must have been too verbose as the last part of my RR was cut off. It was great to see that so many of those on this thread either achieved new PBs or at least course PBs. The pints at the The Old Shades were a relief although by this point I was hobbling with the knee pain, which reminded me that I am the old man I try to pretend I'm not.
The day was rounded off with an enjoyable evening with GBM, Morticia and Foxy. We had some special views of St Paul's and the City from our riverside perch in Zizzi's.
