Thanks for the well dones on Ashby Tim,Malcs and Chicksta! It was good to see you too Tigger even if it was only for a wee while. She actually gave me a fright I was zoned out chugging along when I heard...'Gingermagic!' lol.
Tim, absolutely no danger you are getting this sub 3.30! It is your time.
I'm on a course at the minute preparing me for my exit from the RAF next year right next to Rutland Water. So I'm off for a wee explore round there to get some miles in the bank. Beautiful place for a run.
Hi everyone! Long time no see! It's taken me pretty much 2 days to catch up from where I left off. I've been distracted by work, play, training and sulking a little bit with another wee niggle as well as a dose of man-flu. I've still managed to keep things going ok but it's been far from ideal.
I ran the Ashby 20 yesterday. A really nice race with great pockets of support around the course. I think I did alright, I finished in 2.46 starting at an easy pace building steadily to 8m/m's. The last couple of miles I decided to push a bit harder finishing with a 7.30 and a 7.10m/m. It felt relatively easy as well so I've come away quite pleased and optimistic that I can get that sub 3.30! I saw Tigger as well, she did great and came away with a PB.
Soups, Its been so so impressive the way you've bounced back from the injury. From what I've read back on you've had some great runs. Can't wait to hear of you smashing that 3.30 in Paris!
Well done to you Malcs on that PB. Excellent work Sir! Sean, you are an absolute beast. Looking at Strava your training has been amazing, consistently knocking those miles out with really good quality sessions as well. Hope the shift goes quick so you can rest those legs.
Haha no bother I wish I was that quick! There was another lad from my club with african sunset hair colour there. He's a bit quick, could've been him. Yeah there's a few people kicking off on twitter about the timing.
Freemers, If you ran 2:34:26 you were way too quick for me to pass you! Well done on that time, thats brilliant. I finished around 2:49 although they seem to be having a few problems with the results at the moment.
Thanks Tim and everyone else for the nice words. It was a good day yesterday. It's the Ashby 20 for me next mate on the 22nd of March, then the big one! Glad to hear you're getting back to almost normal training weeks now.
Freemers, metronome!? That must've been one of my ginger brothers. Not in my vocabulary really. I was in a green t-shirt and blue base layer if you remember?
