We had surprise guests at the York Park Run on Saturday in the form of Richard Nerurkar and his 14 yr old daughter Almi. 16:37 and 2nd for Richard and Almi was 1st lesser spotted in 18:37. A modest 20:16 for me but my legs were tired after a heavy few days. Enjoyed the burn out though and did another 5m in the evening. 16.2m on a sunny Sunday morning (I guess Charlie counts this as a MLR!) gave me 63m for the week.
Nice work Jools and an interesting prize haul!
CC2.. good mileage banked there; and fingers crossed for your op - hope it improves things for you.
Awesome PP, as the yanks would say. Good to see you in progressively cracking form!
Good mix of paces there Charlie, best of luck with shifting the extra bit of lard!
Well spotted there Piscator, since I started wearing compression socks and orange shoes and drinking beet shots my pace has come on in leaps & bounds! Good session there BTW.
TT.. sorry to hear lurgy has interrupted your top notch training holiday, hope you come back with plenty of altitude benefit all the same.
After 5m easy last night managed to squeeze in 13.1m today. Bright & breezy afternoon up here so a pleasant outing. For some reason my weight is the lowest since 2003, can't think why as I haven't cut down on beer or cake! My 12 stone 'norm' is currently 11st 6lbs. Must be the exercise!
Nice effort on the treadie Ryan, that must have been a hot one!
Best of luck tomorrow CC2 & Jools.
Top session as usual PP!
Nice to see SL back & chalking up good miles.
ES.. tired leg syndrome! A bit of recovery & you will soon be in top gear again.
After my recent cortisone jab I experimented with an 'as you feel' 10.3m course on Tuesday to see if I was moving more freely. The result was nearly 4 mins quicker than pre-jab so very promising. Couldn't resist a warm Park Run this morning to see if a race would show similar improvements. My last Park Run was a well below par 21:15 at full tilt but I had realised by then that having a partly functioning leg was not only debilitating but slowing me down.
From the off the difference in freedom of movement was massive. I was going to hit somewhere around 20-20:15 with a k to go so I put the afterburners on & borrowed a few expressions from PP's patented gurn gallery (though my shorts were a more discreet black colour!). Pleased to cross the line with the Garmin reading a Bubka-esque 19:59. Only good enough for 3rd old codger but 39th/398 got me in the top 10%. More importantly chuffed to bits to have both legs working properly again!
