Congrats all the relay runners.. TT, Dachs, Padams, Bains, & a nice trophy for PP - well done to Mrs Pub too. Funny when you get a trophy & immediately think 'what can we fill it with?'
Very impressed with your 1st Brit award Marders, so impressed in fact that I will overlook your 19:58 pacing debacle. Hope yours & TT's niggles disappear.
Sensible strategy Lev, hope to see you fly round on the day.
Re. the V70 chap - there's more than one up here! Another one (Vick Shirley) ran 41.30 ish for 10k the other week and that was a twisty off road course! My own clubmate is 69 now and he managed a 1:32 half recently. I think they must all be on some beetroot/spinach shot combination but they won't reveal their secret!
TR.. top effort 13th, well raced under the circumstances fella.
Al P.. blimey, sub 76 after an 8m warm-up! Great pacing & looking good for the main event! Nice 100+ for the week too.
Charlie.. brave effort putting in a 20m after a party night!
Jools.. wow! That's a big chunk to take off a PB. Where did that put you amongst the lesser spotteds?
ON7.. cracking sub 59 there & well done on the podium place.
Jimbob.. still a thoroughly decent time at Reigate, nice one!
Tick Tock.. congrats on the 5k PB, well done on grinding out a 20miler same weekend.
Routine Park Run for me yesterday. Thought I would assist the 16 yr old sub 20 pacemaker until he charged off at 6mm pace, headstrong youth etc! I overtook him around half way and suffice to say my Bubka-esque 19:59 contrasted with his slightly mistimed 20:05. The guy who finished 1 second behind me turned out to be a V70! 5m more in the evening & another 11m today. 55m for the week which is my highest for a while.
Welcome to Tick, sounds like you already know a few of the southern boys.
Sounds like a good bike purchase Padams, hope it gives you more speed.
TR.. meant to say much sympathy with the beachfaring rib injury. I guess you won't be humming Beach Boys segues anytime soon
PP.. one Rogan Josh/Pillau Rice & one Jalfrezi/Pillau rice duly purchased from Tesco this morning for the princely sum of £1.65 each. I decided I could also afford a jar of Patak's spicy chutney to accompany!
Jools.. hope the lurgy clears soon. I would recommend 13.1 miles at brisk medicinal pace from recent experience.
Bains.. cracking progressive mile reps!
Charlie.. Mrs Wardi is Cambridge bound this weekend - the Midsummer House restaurant beckons. One of her girlie trips away where a small group of them spend exotic amounts of money on life's finer things. Oh, and swift hardening to your feet!
Mileage base building up nicely again, last few days have been 13+4, 5.2, 8.9, 7.4.
