So much stuff in the parish. BarefootTed, that's a very high standard to aim for. Keep us posted. I'd be happy with one 6min/mile. Also in the speedy corner well done JackH. ChrisH hope you're healing up. Sliding into the road can be fun but don't make a habit of it. Congrats Swit on your being alive streak. Alex, Greg, PMatt, DD, Ness, SB, Carter, RJ, Birky, GBax, Andrea, Cal, Lilytoo (where are you?), and anyone else. Hello. I've bought some Guinness and have been catching up with Peaky Blinders.
Enough of that. Better run today. 12.6miles in 1hr33, picking up the pace as I went. Bright day, bit windy. Uneventful.
Good luck Greg.
Flat and tired on my run. Never really pulled myself out of the torpor so a change in route to keep me not so far from home. 9.75miles in 1hr18+. Saw a Jay on a fence which added some colour to a wet and grey afternoon..
Well done Ness. You said Guinness, and now I want a Guinness. Hope you've reconciled your feet Swit. Good work all round with people pushing distance and pace. Redjeep, had my bag packed and coat on ready to go the station when I checked the train tickets.
First run in the dark for some time. Had on a headtorch for the unlit country lanes. Forget about the sense of not actually moving you get when the peripheral vision is blacked out. Good though. Lots of cats eyes reflecting back at me, and a mysterious car with people in it in a very hidden away spot. Hmm. 7.15miles in 54:30.
Good luck for tomorrow. I've run a lot of the roads on the route (except the very busy ones) and it's pretty flat and scenic so no nasty surprises. Weather's a bit cold, but no wind. I might pop out to cheer. Enjoy yourselves.
