PMJ – You ran the route of one my favourite runs although I do it from home. Who were you with to be running so slowly?
I had to take daughter #3 to Royal Holloway on Wednesday so with Jantastic target of 6 runs I needed to run Saturday and Sunday. The need was therefore for easy on Sunday and so I ran with my old club on a social run. Even though it appears slow, a few of us did the 14 miles doubling back to keep and eye on the tail runners round a 12 mile circuit so others took the same time (2 hours) for the 12 mile: 10 minute pace.
IC, I assume the ginger one is the same one that parkrun is all excited about.
20 for me today, turned out as 1 mile WU, 9 miles @ 8:03, 9 miles @ 7:35, 1 mile CD. Core 18 miles average @ 7:49 so happy. All the long runs now done until Wokingham Half in 13 days time (nothing over 12 miles) so time to see if I can get some speed back into the legs.
The Midlands go way west. My eldest daughter is running the Midlands Indoor Champs in a few weeks and has qualified by living in Exeter. She is now in Birmingham so makes sense but she used to have to drive all the way to Birmingham to compete in them.
Wool, good MP section there. I ran all along the Jubilee River yesterday and was surprised I saw nobody I recognised outside the group I stared with. Guess you were on the far side of the lake when we were on the nearside. I note life is getting in the way of an exact execution of P&D: is there a plan or just a blip? I found the 55-70 plan was a lot to do.
20 for me today, turned out as 1 mile WU, 9 miles @ 8:03, 9 miles @ 7:35, 1 mile CD. Core 18 miles average @ 7:49 so happy I hit the 7.4x that Speedy reported. All the long runs now done until Wokingham Half in 13 days time (nothing over 12 miles) so time to see if I can get some speed back into the legs.
14 social and slow miles (2 hours) this morning for an unplanned 60 mile week. 20 miles tomorrow am so will be interesting to see how that works out after today and then 2 weeks to get some speed back in the legs for Wokingham via a mini-taper.
