Morning all. Quick call in to say congratulations (again) to Muddy, caught up with him at the end and he'd hardly broken sweat!
I had a bit of a tough day yesterday, in hindsight I don't think I was fully over the bug. Was targeting Sub 1:35, started off reasonably well and went through half way in 46:4x and felt pretty comfortable, but seemed to loose all energy between 8 and 11 miles before pulling myself together and finish ok. Finish time of 1:35:43, so a small PB but not quite what I was after.
Going to take a few days off to make sure I'm properly over the bug and then start base building with some cross country. Have decided not to run Shelton as I don't think there's much point at this stage.
Looks like you're having a good trip, Skinny.
Hope the foot injury doesn't develop in to anything serious, Bob.
Think I've caught up, congratulations to Lit and Richard on the 10k PB's and good work on the East Neuk 10k prizes lit. Things are looking good for Glasgow for you Richard
Storming parkrun Mace, be interesting to see what you could do with some specific 5k training! When's your 10 mile race?
Bob, probably won't be at HP on Thursday, if I do I doubt I'll go with the normal group as it tends to be 8-9 miles which is probably a bit far for me 3 days before a HM, although I'm a bit of a doubt for Robin Hood now. Those before and after pictures that Alex put up on Faceache are remarkable!
Skinny , sounds like you're making progress with the injury. Have a good trip.
Marrows - nice parkrunning, particularly if you're ill.
DT/Muddy - looks like you're both able to make Robin Hood on Sunday? I'm still planning on running it but I've been ill for the passed couple of days, think I'm over the worst of it now though. I'm in the yellow start area, assume you two are in there as well.
Lou - relay report?
Due to house stuff, being a bit ill and being silly busy at work, I've not managed to run as much as normal since GNR so not ideal prep for Robin Hood. However, still planning on running it and seeing what happens. Didn't bother entering Turkey Trot so hopefully be around for the Sneyd Xmas pudding race.
