Well done, RFJ! Sounds decent pacing to me! Do you think you could have kept it going to 10K? 

Glad you got some GF provisions, LMH: just don't eat it all in one go! Thought of you (and those thread members in Germany!) when making an Apfelkuchen this afternoon: very tasty it was too! 

I have broken ribs twice and on neither occasion was there any visible sign. Exceedingly painful though and I do hope that your ribs are only bruised, Dustin.

Yes, take the positives, OL! Better conditions than last year, I imagine.

Good that you could get out, Dustin! Hope that the breathing improves tomorrow!

Lyrics: I believe so!

Go well, OL! And RFJ and any other racers.

Hope you pick up plenty of GF food, LMH!

What: around half an hour

Why: easy day. Hopefully longer tomorrow.

Hope all is well in the morning, Dustin! Funnily enough L65 phoned to say this afternoon she fell over, gashed her arm,hurt her ribs...whilst out shopping! Glad yesterday went well on what must have been a difficult day. 

Can't make Stockport 10  tomorrow, OL, but trust all goes well. I think conditions will be better than last year so expect to hear of a course PB! No pressure!

RFJ will be happy with his day, I at least! As will Wabo be.

About 6 degrees and damp here, which seems to be a recipe for chest infection compared to the crisp cold weather earlier in the week.

What: 5k pacing L65.

Why: I had promised. 

Things didn't go without quite a few hitches! Flat tyre on the way to the race followed by being unable to find the venue. The sat nav was not helpful but we were rescued by a local.
A couple of ks warm up; thought we were going along the route but had headed in the wrong direction. Quite a narrow course which, apart from a few turns early on, was straight out and back. Tarmac path which may once upon a time have been a single track railway line. Path unfortunately wasn't visible due to all the leaves on it! 
Set off a little too fast: had little choice as if we had slowed we would have been knocked over, it was that narrow. First k was 4:45: taking into account the twists and turns this was slightly adventurous and L65 suffered a little on the second k which was a shade outside 5 minutes. Big complaints from her here: remember I have been ill (she has, twice in the last month) but she then got a bit of a grip after the turn around point with the last 2ks in the mid 4;40s. 24:27 on my watch which would move her to 14th on the ranking list if correct, and ahead of a local rival. Pleasant little race and we will go back when conditions, and health, are more favourable.

Hopefully no pressure for me, LMH! There might be for the athlete concerned!

Oh dear, WP! A pain!

LMH: L65 ran 23:47 at parkrun recently. Don't think she is quite in that shape but that would put her in the top 10 in the rankings. Would be happy with 24:40 as that would move her above a rival!

The Dynaflyte were recommended; the Xalions were a punt!

Hope it is not too cold  at 10 a.m. tomorrow: some club members are going to a 5k race in Liverpool and all being well I am pacing L65.

Indeed you are right, WP: it was startfitness!

Damp here, and reasonably mild. Forecast said it wouldn't rain, so it did which wasn't very helpful as I had just done a little cementing around the edge of the drive.

Sounds like good news, OH! Hope you lose the other stone also!
