Good efforts in the heat everyone. My contribution on Tuesday started with a 20m bike ride to a local 10k handicap race at the end of our summer season. About 200 runners set off in order of speed slow to fast so you try and catch as many as possible. Bliddy hard work in a sweltering 28 degrees but just about held my own in overtaking/being overtaken. Took me about 45 mins to stop sweating after the race!
This summer series consists of 6 x 10k races plus the handicap at the end with a pie & peas supper thrown in after the last event - all for a tenner.
TT.. my bike frame is titanium and it does seem a bit kinder to my old bones when going over bumps.
Didn't realise you were a V50 now CD, congrats on the prize. Hope your tremors are over for the foreseeable.
Great mileage LMH!
RB.. get well soon, gout sounds nasty!
LS21.. nice session there, hope you can sort both those Achilles out soonest. Pleased you got a proper diagnosis of your liver. Never heard of Gilbert's syndrome before, I guess that means you will be doing most of your forthcoming runs alone again, naturally. (I'll get me coat).
Being the oldest coffin dodger on here I took some relief seeing that picture of Padams needing dentures a couple of pages back. Too many sherbet dips and Haribos when you were younger I'd wager.
Park Run in 20.41 yesterday which was ok in warm & breezy conditions, 5.5m later.
Good to see the thread come back to life after a sleepy day yesterday. I thought at the very least Charlie would pop in having run 26 miles in a duffle coat or similar.
Very impressive 3k if you weren't 100% PP, nice one. Decent 18m today too!
TT.. great to see you can run again, that should gradually get rid of your beefcake status
I ran to work this morning to retrieve my bike which was left there on Friday due to a social function. 13.3m run which was hot & humid, 15m ride back where I was almost grateful for a cooling headwind!
