A few nasty ouches there, sorry to read of the upsetting fall and the consequental discomforts. Hard to manage shopping after all that! Wishing you a speedy recovery which is not so easy at our time of life !
Diana, Thats really good going, young lady, 50 successive days, wow
Ceal, Belated happies for Stewart's 60th. Enjoy your Cornwall break, we shall be there in July,hopefully
JJ, Talking of diminishing numbers of M70 runners, I notice the parkrun (Hallam) in which I have run mostly (over 30) doesn't seem to have any over70 in recent weeks and yet the field is almost 500. In fact, there doesn't seem to be any using the other 5 local parkrun venues either.
K2, Nice to see you back, renowned as our topofthepagequeen!
Still knocking out steady mileage, 5 early am. Monday and 6 today. Nowt special, just merely running to keep some sort of order to avoid dropping out just because of age . Might try our RV this Sat instead of marshalling.
Marg phoned from Benidorm and complained about their dull cold andwet weather yesterday, she had to purchase a cagoule and a cardigan ! Nicer today as it should be.
Mum has to see a specialist on Friday re memory. I believe it's for an assessment, anyway Ishall go with her.
Had a bit of trouble with typing that post so sent it without times.
Mile times first 2 and 3/4 was 12.28, 11.14 and 10.55 pace (for 3/4m)
5k test 10.29, 10.19, 9.51 and 0.57 for 0.10 ( I stopped after finish point where Garmin said 3.1miles). Warmdown 0.72m back along the riverside trail.
Total mileage 6.55
You're right it is the same place which you ran in the 10k a few years back when I first met you. By the way, the 5k also has some of that rough surface which you didn't like too much, as you said then you like" smooth not rough" .
As per normal, an easy Wednesday with a 4 mile run/walk recovery, 1 mile slow run and 3miles up and down hills walking.
Today back to a goodish run. First 2 and 3/4 miles warmup on uppity trails. Then I thought I'd check the distance of the new 5k RV parkrun. A one lap circular course. Turned out to be a little short by 0.06m but then that could easily be due to a lot of the course being widish so it depended on where the footfall went ! In other words a lot of runners would have different readings showing on their timepieces. A straight 3.1 mile would be best for accuracy but would be most boring to boot!
