TR with a steep bit of training you may be alright. You’re still youthful.
LukeStur – monster run! Well done.
Bufo very well done at the Inter counties. Top work.
Steve6 that’s a great session to do the hard part in the second half: top time and effort
RS78 great couple of races this weekend from you. Well done for hanging on to 5th today.
Haha excellent first Joolska in the middle of your 18m!
CW great HM at Cambridge, and then another on top to join Luke on a monster run. Superb.
Excellent half A.W. too: in that wind it sounds like an excellent time and run. Well done on the 5th.
TS that’s a top race too and all wrapped in a 22m. Excellent work.
Runningowl excellent 20m and place. Looking good for the goal.
PiMan top long run from you. Wow.
CC2 top training with racing 20m from you.
Jonny superb racing: well done. That’s superb time and place.
Dachs: that still seems like a very good race to me, but maybe you’re right that the half was still in the legs.
Bedders excellent racing from you with the new PB: congratulations!
JH1 Excellent Finchley 20m from you. Very impressive. Yes I did take some gels! Agree with you about the Surrey Half. That’s very interesting about the Stoke parkrun because I couldn’t fathom how the official time bore no resemblance to my watch pacing . That makes me feel a lot better. Slightly dangerous course in places at the moment, especially over the boards around ‘Wild Wood’ and some other wet sections. I’m going to avoid it for a bit. Happy with my overall 4th place as part of a longer training run.
Uh-oh. It's a long time since the speed police have been on here but I could be in trouble. 23.5 m in 3hrs31mins @8'59 pace. In my defence m'lords and m'ladies it involved 4300 ft of ascent, was all off road, hilly, boggy, scrambly, thorny but oh so so so magic in the sunshine. That was bliss. Sign of things to come I hope.
Had to put the final 4 miles in at 7'30 pace or I'd have been over 9mm. Felt very easy which is a decent enough sign. Anyway enough of moi-meme. Going to read up and post on others achievements a little later.
Oh no Dan. Oh no. Oh no That absolutely sucks massively, horrendously and unbelievably.
I'm tempted by the tickets if you're serious about not going. I've never been to Barca and it's supposed to be lovely? Could you not go and have a nice weekend there? Or would it be salt in the wound?
Got to say that's put quite a big downer on everything else for me, but still great to see PP that you're coming right back into form. Haha no pressure on the carrot cake - I'll find a recipe if not. I'm really looking forward to it either way!
