Well done on the sub 60 anyway Dr Dave, sorry to hear about the house/home problems.
A very decent bank of mileage DanA, brisk Park Run in the middle too.
Good work on the bike TR.
All these 16 somethings PP, impressive but frustrating in equal measure I would think. Best of luck in smashing it soon. Good race yesterday under the circumstances.
Great stuff as usual Lev.
CC2..worth waiting for the proper assessment. Hope it's nothing much.
Nothing much to report here. Still nursing a slightly cranky Achilles back to health. As a result I've cut runs down to 3 a week and filled the other days with as much cycling as possible, seems to be improving anyway.
Many happy returns Jools, may the new category bring you many prizes.
Good to see you're on the mend Al P, nice racing.
Very solid stuff from TR & JH1, good going fellas.
Cracking mixture of volume & quality there Lev.
Charlie.. speaking from experience.. as you get older the recovery doesn't bounce back like it did 5/10 years ago (not that I'm inferring that you're an old codger!). You do put some pretty heavy duty training in so I guess it is simply a matter of listening to your body. Hope everything settles down soonest anyway.
DT19.. you mentioned sunglasses. I've worn Oakleys for running & cycling for over 10 years now, wouldn't buy anything else. Lenses are top quality, plus they are so comfortable you tend to forget you've got them on after a mile or so. I tend to go for the bronze lenses as they are good in both strong sun and cloudy conditions. They are expensive at RRP but have a look through this lot - I think they must be cancelled orders & the like, I got my last pair from there with about 1/3rd off. Good luck tonight BTW.
Andrew.. sorry to hear that, you're not having much luck lately.
Alehouse.. all the best with the comeback.
Mr V.. nice 5 miler there.
42.35 for 10k last night, about 3 seconds quicker than a similar flat course 4 weeks ago so I'll take it. I seem to be better at 5k's than 10k's these days, not sure why - still, happy to be half decent at any distance at my age!
Top effort CD! Still a good 5k from PP as well on tired legs.
Congrats on completing that long run SL & happy birthday to your training partner!
RS78.. best of luck for next weekend.
Charlie.. nicely done on the 18 miler particularly with all those hills.
ON7.. cracking half & well done on the top 10 finish.
CC2.. I'm with you on the free t-shirt, I currently stand tantalisingly at 49 Park Runs!
Hard day yesterday - supping champagne on a kerbside in Ilkley watching the TDF. Amazing crowds & atmosphere everywhere. I cycled up to the end of a quiet narrow country lane which joins the route today and found about 2 miles of parked cars on grass verges & about 2,000 people on the roadside. There was a gentle descent here and the speed those guys came past was astonishing. Some cracking photos from both days here..
I managed to twist my foot in a shallow pothole in the mile race last Thursday which has made my Achilles a bit sore. Decided to take a few days off as a precaution but as cycling is ok topped up today's journey to 40m.
