10k done and dusted. Hot, hilly and humid. It went through grounds of an old stately home, now an upmarket hotel and golf course. Found it pretty tough and had a few walk breaks. Had a bit of a surreal moment as one of the horses fully fitted with saddle , reins etc had obviously made an escape and came trotting towards us riderless . Luckily there was someone around to catch him.
Finished in 67.15 , worst time for ages! But did get nice medal and a tshirt for completing the series.
Im racing a 10k this morning , going to melt! Friend has cried off due to heat. Tempted to do same but it's the last in a series of 3 and a county champ race so will just amble round to get the series t shirt
got a new bike this week through cycle scheme at work. Shop I used were dire in terms of service and it's annoyed me as it's taken the pleasure off getting new bike a bit. Gears need some serious adjustment so will be taking it back this week too
Morning. Back from a week in cornwall. Had a lovely time and really enjoyed scenery. Did 2 parkruns and 2 races too! Taunton parkrun in oddly enough Longrun meadow. Nice course but few bottlenecks. Then did an evening 4 mile along perranporth beach , up cliff and back down to finish. It was tough as sand not very compacted so cliff was actually a relief! Very small field but wasn't quite last. Around 45 minutes.
Second race was also 4 miles, also hilly but on road so easier. Much bigger field this time. Great support from locals enroute too. 41.17 so pb on that one Youngest did 30.57!
Final parkrun was in Lanhydrock park , Bodmin. It was tough. Multi terain with lots of hills and I think combo of early start, 3 races earlier in week and hours of messing about in wetsuits in sea meant I found it really tough. Calves protested very early and walked a fair bit. 35.57, worst parkrun time ever but it was pretty! Son came 11th in 21 something!
today is local 5k which I'm doing but running with the beginners group I've been coaching on so should be able to cope. then need to unpack a bit!
Hope all ok here. Had very limited internet whilst away so not fully kept up.
