Good runs from a lot of people. AG, I reckon PBs close to the minute are the best sort: if you are just over the minute it shows a sub is possible, if you are just under you can claim the full minute. The annoying ones are those in the middle, so Pete's 37:32 would irritate me (but well done Pete).
SG, you have to be careful about reading the small print as far as UKA goes. Yes, you can have as many second claim clubs as you want, but you still have to have a first claim club and you have to pay their club fee first. If you are to change first claim club, you need to pay the £10 fee and get a number of letters filled in. As an example, Datchet membership runs from 1 Jan to 31 Dec. If I didn't renew in January and then decided to move clubs in February, then Datchet could say I am in arrears and I'd have to pay the year's membership before I could validly leave and join another club. By default, if you do not resign in writing, you membership automatically rolls over.
The UKA charge £13 for registration and that gets you the £2 off each race.
Ran from Marlow to Aston and back yesterday: they have resurfaced part of the Thames Path form Marlow to Hurley with a nice coating of crushed stone so it is a nice surface now but I can't see any evidence of drainage work so as soon as we get a wet spell it will surely just water log and become muddy with stones in the mud rather than just muddy.
Leslie, good pace for the 15 and good miles for the week. You must have a race in mind soon, you look fast.
KR, have you got a link for those standards? I googled but can't seem to find any correlation.
14 miles out and back on the Thames for me today, not as windy as CC2 but definitely windy. Trouble was that the wind was on my back on the way out and I didn't notice it, and then an obvious head wind on the way back. Had to work hard to match the first half pace on the return.
I'm planning Bramley 20 as a targeted race next year. Something nice about racing a 20 rather than training for a marathon and having to run a 20 as a "not quite full out but hard enough to knacker you" effort.
