Malcs - yes, of course I knew you were joking. As Angela says, the volunteers do an amazing job. But I've also been guilty of spending four hours on a Saturday, wishing they'd given me another 1 second off my time. Ha ha.
Finchley went well, thanks. Another good training run ticked off the list.Good luck with Spitfire. It's nice to do one 20 miler training run in a race situation. I learnt a lot about fueling and pacing yesterday, so I'm sure it'll really help your marathon preparation.
Glad you're feeling good after the long run, Roger. Keep up the great work.
Just wanted to report back that my Garmin is now working again. I took your collective advice and spoke to tech support. I'd uploaded new software a few weeks' ago and apparently sometimes that stops the satellite working. I just had to reset it and now it's fine, so thank you!
Speedy - that's some weekend. Superb!
Finchley 20 training run yesterday, which is 4 laps of 5 miles. Nice mix of paces and felt good.
Ha, Malcs. Results always tricky with parkrun. It's sometimes more an art than science, particularly as it relies on volunteers. Generally we get it right though and Dulwich is accurately measured. My friend who I ran Finchley 20 did timer yesterday, so I know he's very good but never easy. Lovely day for being outside, although 3 hour traffic jam back home after race not so good...
