Can I join in? I ran 1:54 today in the Waltham Forest HM which is quite hilly. I did 2 halfs this time last year: Brighton in 2:03 and the Waltham Forest one again in 1:58. I felt much stronger today and the last 2 miles were the fastest so I'm hopeful I can improve.
I'm 47 and run about 25 to 30 miles pw pretty consistently. My parkrun time is 24:37 and 10 km is 50:xx Have to say I don't think I have any natural flair whatsoever (!) as anyone else I know who runs the same kind of mileage has much better times but I really enjoy running so it's good to have a target to aim for.
I would definitely be interested! I work at Hackney college in Shoreditch just up the road from you.
I have an ongoing injury/issue with my right hip though it is manageable and i can run regularly so it may not be bad enough. I could email you a longer explanation?
