Just for info Chingo is now married and still struggling with injury !!
Same one? Has he made a few comebacks,or trying a different sport now?
I think it was Chingo years ago who said wind was the worst weather to run in.
At the time I'd have probably gone more with heat/humidity, but I'd have to agree on the wind now.
similarish to Wokingham? Maybe without the bumps?
My next half that I'm after a time at, I'd like a nice consistent course. Reading is one a lot find fast, but I'd prefer something the splits stay pretty similar. Not 20secs down as early as mile 3.
ps stick it up on here, just for my benefit. Although actually, if it's runs like 30mins threshold at mid 5s maybe best not, so I don't feel unworthy
Matt - no disrespect, but should she be allowed anywhere near a car? Sounds a little dangerous!
Phil, I have to chuckle at even the idea of making those sort of efforts to do a parkrun. Even the one at the bottom of my garden feels like too much effort to stroll to!
My sunday run was a 3miler
All planned though, as a recovery to yesterday's quality long.
Worked quite well really, with the lost hour in the evening, combined with some hectic footy travelling.
Tried the not eating before a run for the first time ever. Was ok for a 3miler, but probably wouldn't try for any sensible distance.
Put in my request to do a/some races...so no doubt Bus/Phil i'll see if you fancy doing the same one(s) when confirmed.
Well done Johnas, although because you don't post too much, no one ever knows if you're injured, training excellently, or what
Am sure you've gone sub 1hr 15 at least once, so second best ever time? And closer to your best than I got at Reading!
How's the course compared to some of our other local favourites?
