1. Well done to SteveMac for great parkrun pacing and Berlin place.
2. Jealous vibes to Shades/Big G and Cal for your lives of leisure. But wondering when you're going to look for another job Shades (I wouldn't rush it!)
3. Happy Bday to Big G! The good thing about running is that you don't dread those milestone birthdays so much. Like Cal (who doesn't look anywhere near 50 in the pic), I'll be entering a new category next year (but not V50 yet!)
4. Iain - 'happily running' and '5:40' pace are not two phrases that I would ever put together! Maybe I should look into this low carb thing after all...
Reat day for me yesterday but hoping to do 8-9 miles tonight with my club.
Shades - I was 5th not 1st lady at Hyde Park. It's quite a quality field, the top 3 men all under 16 mins and the 1st lady 17 something.
Must be a day for squirrels, I saw one at the side of the road that must have been hit by a car but was still alive. Wish now I'd put it out of its misery. Managed 17 miles which felt a bit tough as windy and quite muddy on the path by the canal.
Iain - take care with that new diet. Sometimes the body needs carbs (roasted potatoes in the oven now...!)
Snap Tom! - I mean that I ran 17 miles too! But I'm sure I was a lot slower and I had no sleet. But a fair amount of wind and my route along the canal was full of muddy puddles. But glad it's done. I saw a squirrel at the side of the road that had been hit by a car and was still alive. I wish not that I'd put it out of its misery.
