Hope any hangovers from Red and Mr. Fox have now cleared!
Good to hear from you again RF and glad that you are still running and enjoying the open air. I very seldom see any runners these days that were my "opposition" back in the eighties. There are still plenty of runners in the 70+ category but I don't know any of them. They certainly didn't figure in races back in the day. Perhaps they are late starters. There were 15 in the category in our clubs Solent Half Marathon.
I'm not doing the club session this evening, which is a 5k time trial on roads. Instead, I will be running 10 miles with Alice, and possibly Steve. I do my 5k speed work in the parkruns, so don't want to do two in a week.,
Very cold first thing and I'm doing the Brockenhurst parkrun at 9.00.
Quite eventful yesterday. I caught a later bus into Southampton than usual and it was standing room only. I was strap hanging, bringing back memories of many years ago travelling on the Northern Line. The bus was taking bends at speed, meaning that those of us standing were hanging on for dear life. My arms were really aching by the time we arrived.I was pleased though that no one offered me a seat. I arrived safely and went to buy my Salomon Trail shoes. I told the assistant my size, UK 8 and he brought the box to me to try them on. The left shoe fitted perfectly, but the right one felt a bit loose. I queried this and removed the shoe, it was a size 10!! The assistant then attempted to locate the other size 8. He asked his boss for help and he found it on display in the window. I've now got a matching pair.
Columba, hope your knee was ok for your pre breakfast run. I don't think I've ever eaten parkin and don't know what it is, Is it like Yorkshire Pudding?
