Well done Cov runners, some great times with minimum drama. I think i missed muddy finish- I just saw a clubmate come in at 1:21; saw DT pass and after some quick mental arithmetic decided he should be satisfied with his performance.
After mcf passed me i went round to the finish but by a slightly indirect route as it was quite difficult to push through the crowds with a pram and a toddler.
Marrows - That's a good idea. I might try that next time I go to the track (which isn't very often to be honest)
Parkrun sandwich this morning. It was my first time on the "winter route" which avoids the muddiest bits and has a different start and finish location. I was too busy chatting when we were called to the start, which is quite narrow, so had to line up quite far back (I'm far too polite to push to the front at parkrun).
I decided to experiment with 'running to feel', so no pace display on garmin, just total time including 4 mile warm-up. Turned out to be a bit unspectacular with a first mile of 7:14, pushing through the crowds and including The Hill, second mile 5:54 downhill, third mile 6:31 perhaps a bit lazy, and 46 seconds for the 0.1. Total 20:25 watch time against 20:33 gun time.
Five miles on the way home for a total of just of 12.
Mr V - can you undo with one hand while drizzling oil with the other?
Lit/DT - running intervals based on time is fine but then you don't get the benefit of an accurately measured track. I also just use it like a stopwatch but tend to forget how many reps I've done unless I have garmin counting them for me.
Its a while since I've been to cov, but the SkyDome cp is convenient. There is a carpark in the roundabout on the ribgroad next to SkyDome which is cheaper. You turn into the road that goes round to SkyDome carpark then immediately turn left under the roundabout and park in the middle.
Bob - I know his thread got removed, but Is Samir still posting?
Lit - One of the problems I have with training at the track is I can't rely on Garmin to tell me what to do as the distance isn't accurate, so I have to think about it a bit. (and invariably forget what I've just done.)
