Started writing a post at about 4pm, before getting caught up in office end of week "bantz", and binning the post off. Then getting home, rucking about fixing a config error for an hour, and erm,..here we are...so let's try again
Good turnout Reg! Both for a full 800s sesh, and for a terrific use of the classic "making a point to someone gooning around in lane 1 by skimming past them at pace" routine. Have utilised that on a couple of chavs to good effect before, and also the regrettable incident with some kid whose mum thought letting him pish about in lane 1, while she boobed around at 23min miling was a clever idea.
I mowed/caught him mid rep, and he also got a slap off his mum for his trouble when I gently pointed out what can happen when lanky bastad, + speed, meets midget kid.
erm, anyway, am surprised at what you say about proper tracks. I'm probably the opposite, I spend 3miles trundling around warming up, wondering how in blazes i'm going to suddenly run much faster, until I emerge on the glorious surface and it all suddenly feels splendid.
