Cheers Scott - to be confirmed but the unofficial maths says we pulled it off and won all three HRRL divisions - with Dan OB winning the individual title without having to race yesterday. Good point about the liver - mine will have been overworked this last week with illness and paracetamol.
Peter - well done that is impressive from where you've come 18 months ago and on limited mileage. And whilst the D-Day course is flat it is also twisty and with that weather not an especially fast one in my opinion, so plenty more to come...
Ditto Scott P what happened at D-Day, hope you're ok?
I know a few people had late chip replacements so weren't in the initial results but looks these have been corrected since, and I saw Ben Danny + Darren from Lordshill at the finish but no sign of you?
As for me, D-Day was a poor run but that was to be expected. Had a much better couple of weeks after Netley 10K since my last post, finally feeling fresh after London, a comfortable tempo parkrun to third place amidst a 10 miler, but then followed a whopping six mile week thanks to a banging sinus cold this last week.
Thankfully the ear+headaches were gone by D-Day but still not feeling 100%, and unsurprisingly my usual summer run issue kicked in today where I barely sweat, just get hotter and slower and the HR/effort goes through the roof whilst people I beat in the winter cruise by. So 1min slower than Netley, and 2.5mins slower than Eastleigh!
But as I said not unexpected, was more about making up the numbers for HRRL points as Stubb in contention to win Men's A Div 1, B Div 1 and B Div 2, and getting myself into the individual Top 30. D-Day is unlikely to count in my best 7 results though unless a LOT of people had worse shockers than me on the day!
Nice picnic and walk around nearby Staunton Country Park with the wife and son after though - I caught the Sun too
Scott just curious do you do your own bike maintenance or go to someone local?
Also interesting to note you had a cold and bloating and wind together recently, as I've had the same this week and it's unusual for me so had assumed that they were related eg gastro virus rather than separate issues. Had a stitch in my back today too and I don't think that's ever happened before.
We have a BOB Revolution which is another model from the same range as the Ironman which DAM mentioned. It is great.
Will you be using a running buggy only for running? If it's solely for running with then there are other more 'minimalist' buggies in existence - eg lighter, bigger wheels - which might suit you better, but which typically have fewer comfort and storage features. Something like a BOB is good for running but also excellent for days out off road, round country parks etc.
