Congratulations on the win Lorenzo, you can only beat who turns up. What was your time.
2nd place for me as well OO, at Newbury parkrun. I was leading for most of the way and tried to break away from 2nd place with about 400m to go but couldn't break him. Annoyingly, he had a decent kick in the last 100 which is something I don't have.
Still its my first parkrun for a few months so can't complain with am 18.14. I ran another fast(ish) lap after for 20mins.
A jog there and back gives me 13 for the day which ain't bad.
Great run and report Poacher, shame about the trombone.
Great running Badbark, you seem suited to this ultra running.
Nice parkrun victories for PMJ and OO. I need to get myself one of those but it's all in the timing, hoping the speed merchants don't show.
Marathon pace long run for me today with 5 easy, 14 @ mp and 1wd.
Mara pace averaged 6.44m/m pace. Not quite sub 2.55 pace but that was on the back of an 80 mile week.
Also felt a little too tough for 26 miles but there's still a few more weeks to sharpen and hopefully taper..etc will help.
