LR 1976 - Yes we probably shook hands - so nice meet you? I avoided the guy chucking up and decided to congratulate the 2nd lady as we ran together for about 6 miles.
Wardi - well done on the solid sub 20 parkrun. £1.31 for a pint is pretty amazing. To be fair in London there are pubs were you can get a pint for under £2.50 and my local it is about £3.50. Anything close to £5 is always a shock.
Lev - I hope the manflu clears up. You are in amazing shape for Berlin
Steve6 - Well done on parkrun win and tempo. Which half you doing?
Joolska - good to see you are on the mend. Great mile reps and top weekly mileage.
Today I managed 22 miles with 4 at marathon pace (~6:40). I cannot say they felt comfortable but at least I managed them. So 110 bike miles and 53 run miles for week..mmh probably deserve another beer?
Thanks for the continued welcomes and apologies for the name which conflicts when abbreviated!
TR - My life would be duller without a few beers most weeks. PP - I am really enjoying London Pale Ale this year but occasionally have been left with a bitter taste when charged £5 for a pint in boozers near work!
DD - I have found when buying Adidas trainers I have usually needed to opt for 0.5 size bigger than my usual Asics. Love the colour though! Have a fun holiday.
Dachs - great run and parkrun. I bet there were many others who had done your type of session.
CW - good luck for the half.
Saturday training for me is a club ride. So 45 miles with a fair few at a decent pace trying to put the hurt on each other .
Yesterday I managed a rare double with 4 miles before work and 6 at lunch time. I really struggle to run first thing in morning so the pace ended up being little more than a shuffle. At least getting the runs out of the way allowed me to pursue my main sport - drinking beer. Though 5 pints of London Pale Ale followed by a late night dodgy pasty on the train home led to today's bike commute to work being more of a struggle than usual.
