Quiet on here this weekend! Family wedding on Saturday so sneaked in a local Park run in the morning before the nuptials. Did a pleasant MLR today in the sun which showed up as a binary classic 11.11 miles on the Garmin.
Dan.. if it's a similar strain to my chest infection it took me 4-5 weeks to shift it. Daily improvement was almost imperceptible but the airways did clear very gradually.
LMH.. my clubmate won the VLM MV60 title a few years ago, he only received a wooden plaque too. He tried to convince me it was all about the glory despite the fact he has Scottish roots.
Padams.. top racing all round! Your powers of recovery must be good.
Tom.. a very fine 10k debut, hopefully a bit to come off that as you do a few more.
Our home town 10k recently and I was employed as lead bike marshall. About 80% of the course is cycle tracks & tarmac farm tracks so we can't use a car or motorbike. We had learned the day before that a train of 'travelling folk' had camped right on the side of the cycle track just after half way - in the middle of nowhere. We had pre-warned them that 350 runners would be going past their no fixed abodes the next night. As I arrived with leader John Sanderson in hot pursuit it was like travelling through a gypsy shanty town. Liberated milk churns (allegedly), authentic horse dung across the path, even a 'welcome home' green mat laid across the track from one of the caravans (in the rain). Plus smoke from the chimneys. Most of the runners thought we had arranged it as a visual treat on a quiet part of the course!
My legs felt very fatigued early this week, not sore or injured just very tired. Not sure why but the body doesn't lie so 0+4m in the last 2 days in an effort to freshen up.
Very well raced Charlie (particularly after last week!) & CL.
CD.. caught a cold here too as the Mrs plus two my two workmates had it! After not being poorly for 3 years I've now been poorly 3 times in 3 months! Congrats on 250 Park Runs (plus the 150 from Junior). I assume you do Park Runs most weekends having amassed that sort of total?
Over the worst cold-wise so 11.3m in the chilly sun this morning.
A very fine effort indeed Charlie, chapeau in spades for covering that distance and finishing 3rd in the spring warmth ..also for catching the bus back!
Good effort Jools, that is still a very nifty pace. Hope the injury stays in the past.
Ryan.. thanks for that. I did pick up a Seville leaflet at the Barca Expo but it doesn't even have a date let alone much info! From here it looks like a flight to Malaga then a train to Seville. Having run Barca the last 2 years (best one I've done) I'm weighing up doing it again or having a change - I think Mrs Wardi would prefer the latter. No doubt you'll tell me to man up and do them both. Nice Park Run BTW, which is your local?
Just short of 13m around the local lanes today, managed to get out early enough to avoid the afternoon heat.
