Great report and fantastic effort Chicksta. Donaldo, even when fit I couldn't get that fast, just sub 40, so big respect, well done
Ale...have you not been told often enough...streeeeetccchhhh
LMH, strapping, ibrupofen and a couple of days off and it'll be fine. Must make note to strap before Parkrun as our off track mudfest is the usual cause it seems! Will go gentle for a week or so and then getting ready for Rock'n'Roll 1/2 in Madrid on 26th. Fantastic city and great race. Might look for a 2.05 but I'll trust my HRM and take it from there.
As you state Chicksta, it's a whole new experience taking in the sights and sounds whilst running well within yourself.
Dustin, how is 2h40 easy?

Well done AoH, LMH,
Knee niggardly this morning so taped up, strapped up and slowed down. Wind horrendous in places but reasonable when it dropped. Steady 2.09 so v.happy and 20 beats to spare so should be aiming for a sub 2 safely by June. Crazy, legs and lungs never been better and sure I could be chasing great times but frustrating I can't. I am still running and it's better than the alternative

What: Worceseter Half
Why: Impulse
Last Hard: Today
Last Rest: Thursday.

Have a great rest of your Sunday one and all.

You call that a rest Joe???
Lyrics: Nope
What: Something gentle and no more than 5
Why: Looking after my knee
Last Hard: Not being able to run yesterday
Last Rest: I suppose that must be yesterday
Off work today in lieu of last Friday and enjoying the sun


Too late to change my target?

If you've done the training, especially the long miles 10k time x 5 -10 mins is a reasonable predictor so on that basis yes, I'd aim sub 4.

Tour of Torfaen half marathon from Blaenavon through Pontypool to Cwmbran stadium. Blisteringly fast course ending at the stadium with the mayor dishing out the bling. Victim of cutbacks I think and lives on as a reduced 10k from Blaenavon to Pontypool as the Mic Morris memorial 10k. Sad but would be great to see it back.
Organised by sport and leisure department of the council. I think it was policing costs which killed it off.
