Well done on the longer run, WP, enjoy your race, Don, and well parkrunned++ OL.
In the end went to Stamford Park parkrun. Lesson one: it is not actually in Stamford Park, although apparently the coffee is afterwards! Lesson two was all about revising times given the nature of the course: undulating, muddy, stony, uneven...very much off road and close to a cross country course.
What: pacing at parkrun, with just 1k warm up (all uphill and couldn't find where to go!), 5k run and 1k warm down.
Why: L64 wanted a hard run. She got more than she bargained for as the course was much tougher than expected. Nevertheless a good run, with no-one passing us, and breaking the L60 course record by over 2 minutes without being flat out, so all in all a good morning's work. Edit: 2:34 off the course record and the highest age grading of the day!
Now to watch England play...cricket, football and rugby all in one day!
Dustin: hope you are feeling better today! You say you have a birthday coming up...is it time for a new age group?
WP: the 7 minute thing is an app that Wabo had on her i-phone...I got a similar one for android. It is good in that it reminds you to do it each day, has videos of how to do the exercises, tells you when to start/stop etc. I don't do all of the prescribed exercises because of neck/shoulder problems so I substitute other things. Don't do something new before Cardiff though!!
I take it you did all three, OH! Only ever done two at a time, bit always running (allegedly)! Always Penygent and either of the other two. So well done! Always found Whernside the toughest but I guess it depends on the order. Used to use Clapham as a base...and I don't mean the London one, although that is usually where I stay in the smoke.
You still got a 110, Wabo? I had that one but the strap kept disintegrating so picked up a Forerunner 310XT relatively cheaply. Don't use the HRM. Seem to remember LMH has/had the same model. Love it...not least because the numbers are bigger than on the 110.
