Marrows - no! You'll only encourage Poacher et al. I'll post a pic of my "Hallux Rigidus" if you lot don't behave ! Gerard - pleased you had a very good race on familiar streets, but also that you enjoyed the family time . Jools - nice one ! As you say, hopefully a good indicator for Frankfurt. The disco lights and red carpet beckons . . . . . Looking forward to the Coastal reports . . . 20.5 this morn - wet and sultry, thankfully no storms.
Sorry to hear that, Gerard; I hope things are resolved soon. Tks for asking - son 36:42; daughter 44:41 (well over two mins down on her PB, but she perked up at £45 voucher for 2nd senior female(3rd overall), which she immediately exchanged for a half-price pair of racer-trainers at the shoe stall)!
Good non-drowning, TAR, and respectable placing. Shame about the diary malfunction, OO ! SJ said "Was it entertainment OO" Gerard, a bit surprised at your self-doubt - you have proven you have plenty of mental strength . . .
No idea if that's a good time, SJ, but swimming (in open water) for that period (and that distance )!! is certainly worthy of respect in my book ! Speedy - I guess sympathy doesn't help, but I really hope you get sorted . . . .
Rounded off a 9 day 70 mile block today with appropriately named Notfast 10K. 45:26 is where I'm at these days, but did follow (since last Sat) 21,0,14,6,0,5,6,11,10K(7 inc w/up). First official 10K since 2002! More importantly, a good family outing with daughter (3rd), and son (10th) . Pretty humid.
Gerard - he's 26 ! He runs for his club - local road league, xc, track league. Not a prolific road racer, has done 2 or three half mara.A new job will bring him back up here in a few weeks, so this Sunday me and his sister will join him in his local 10K as a sort of "running farewell" to his current location. btw, your dad was pretty speedy !
TAR - serious respect (and good wishes) for the aquatic venture. Speedy - sorry about the hip problem - hope it's soon sorted.
