Skinny great stuff on the V40 victory! You mentioned Brampton in your report – will you be running it this year?
Pete – Great to see you’ve worked your way back into PB shape – makes the round trip worth it.
Muddy – Sounds like you are running strongly, bodes well for the mara.
Lit – Nice tune up effort there. Looking goof for Chester.
I had a go at running parkrun at goal 10k pace on Saturday (aiming for 17.59). I was rather impressed with pacing as I ran 17.58 on my watch (and 18.00) official. I was less impressed with how hard it felt.
It's been a bit of a rough few months hence the lack of posting. Running has been ticking along relatively ok though. A couple of recent 5Ks suggest I'm in reasonable if not great shape. Hoping to get the training properly going again now.
Dan well done, sounds like a great experience. Glad to hear you avoided all the problems.
DT - Good news, must have all been pretty alarming.
I had a good run at the 5.67 mile Blaydon race last Thursday. Finished in 32.36 which would translate into a 10k time I'd be very happy with. Slight caveat that the course is net downhill but a promising effort and 18 seconds faster than last year.
Muddy - Sounds like you are beginning to make some good progress. Do you have any plans to race soon?
The fast pack at my club have just started doing track sessions on a Tuesday so I went along last night with the view to doing it weekly. Session of 2K (6.53) followed by 6x400 (75s). Hoping a bit of track work can help squeeze out some improvement.
