jason d, sounds as though you're not well. Rest for a day or two and recharge. It's not obligatory to run every day. I never did and look where it got me.
SK4, I think TdH is going to be crowded this year. If you're planning to hang onto MarkL's coat tails you'll be well speedy. Our paths might cross as you overtake. If you recognise me from behind (what are the chances of that?) we can exchange a fleeting 'ow do.
br, afraid I won't be able to do Ashby 20. My diary is already full beyond then. (btw I got a nice hoodie last weekend for the Runfurther Grand Slam to add to the collection, so not desperate for another just yet )
TR, you'll be sucking your thumb for a few nights then? Hope it's not sore for too long.
I got another PB this weekend on the Staffordshire Moorlands Christmas Cracker (8 miles up around The Roaches). When I last ran it in 2006 - 2008, my times were all 1:13 and some seconds. This year, 1:10 and some seconds. WOW!
brer - no Ashby 20 for me (when/where is it?). Staffordshire Moorlands Christmas Cracker tomorrow (8 miles from Tittesworth up along The Roaches and back) and Tour de Helvellyn next Saturday from dark 'til dark.
Another Parkrun for me today - 22:33 was 1 second off PB. It was the usual collapse to the ground gasping for air after crossing the line, so not sure if I could have gone any faster.
jason d, you must have revved the balls off your engine to get 19:09 in 2nd gear. Is it knackered now? Seriously, you did a 100-mile round trip for a 5k??
Hi there brer, very well ta. Still glowing from 3 PBs over the past two weekends. :-0 To get a PB on a 7th running of the Stockport 10, I must be doing something right. This running to work (or walking or mincing in the ice) seems to be working wonders.
T Rex, I looked out for the alignment this morning but the moon must have sunk. Didn't see any shooting stars either, Chrissi.
jason d, how come you're still grumbling about the ice now you've got Yaktrax? Don't you trust them?
A thaw is setting in tonight. It'll be up to 8 deg C into the weekend.
I never got a worm this year. The birds will be disappointed.
Agree with the above comments - setting off to the Benny Hill music was comedy class. I ran round that track with a right big grin on my face. What a brilliant event yet again. Thank you The Harriers, the marshals and Tony on the mic.
