Red, happy birthday, and many happy returns. Congratulations on your 10k pb, which I had been confident you would get sometime this year.
BIW, I've always believed that good gear makes you feel good, and therefore achieve better results in competition.
I ran a very good pace 6 miles this morning in the forest, which included several hills. I ran the hills hard, and my legs felt strong. I'm looking forward now to the Lordshill 10k road race in 2 weeks and hoping to beat my Eastleigh 10k time.
Matsmum, very well done to K and C, you are right to be proud! Thanks for your congrats. I'm sure the wings you sent me helped me up the steepest hills.
JJ, I don't know who passed the yellow liquid, but I didn't like the look of it.
I ran 8.5 miles in the forest this morning and felt really strong. The outward leg was into a very strong wind and was nearly all uphill. It was much easier on the return, with the wind behind me blowing me down the hills.
Morning, it's bright and sunny here at the moment, but heavy showers and possible thunder are forecast later.
Red, I hope you were suitably attired to match the conditions during your early morning run. Don't worry, I'm not doing the parkrun. I will be going for a steady forest run, and hopefully get back before the rain.
