Lots of activities now removed. This is one of them
Ha! That's literally incredible. I think my favourite bit is miles 17 and 18, running uphill, at altitude, at 5:44 and 5:34/mile. That's ~half a minute per mile quicker than his parkrun PB pace. Go on Rob!
he has a website somewhere which claims just slightly faster pbs than his PO10.
Like a 30.30ish 10k...
Just a bit tastier than 20min type 5ks
Maybe he's from the same school of running as that Ellan Brighton woman. ie record years of mediocrity, to be able to do 1 super human in comparison one...
Ta folks, still wary of the stress/anxiety/breathing, but yesterday felt great...after, of course! Today, hit a new peak of stress, accidentally slightly grazing a car in a full carpark (race for life on, normally it's fairly empty!). Very slight marks on their car, but left a note as per a good citizen, and was delighted to later get a text saying thanks for admitting, but no need to take any further - phew!
Anyway, great stuff on here as always, SC, that took me a while to work out the lap pace on that 1.37. Truly insane i'd say. Maybe you're not working hard enough on the earlier stuff if you can finish like that
Dean, anyone else would obviously relish that 4.31! Most of us would probably be pleased with a sub 5. But different strokes for diffo folks!
Scott, I never have any worries about you, however many medical shenaighans you take part in. You very quickly get back into good stuff, and will quickly make up your true level.
Pete, racking up the thread awards yourself. As much as I tickle your ballz about monster totals of racing, it's a glorious gift to be able to just go and do a race when you like, because you like. Certainly something I've taken for granted before-and certainly something i'm not yet being back to yet!
Ric - there's been more epic reports, but in terms of words per mile, this one has to win out!! I'm sure no one expected a 2 liner on the latest comeback
Nice one Bus on the markings. Hopefully you can ease out whatever currently aches. At least with those sort of injuries you can be sure what is right and what isn't. When it's internal, you might only realise when you wake up in some strange room
Just did a 10 today, following the race. Probably look to make some track thing up for Thur or Fri, but will think about the 2 Tuesday 5ks. One of them, I've missed about 4 times in the past due to very brief illnesses/niggles, and Datchet/Windsor can't be too far from my new work!
