Well done RFJ! Sounds a pleasant but toughish course!

I didn't think you were racing today, Dustin, as I had thought you said that your next race was a half! How's Miss Leeds getting on?

Nice 20, OL!

In other news, daughter ran from her house to mine and back. She never runs but clocked up 9k. Just over 42 minutes in total. I guess she is quite fit from hockey and cycling about 25 mile most days. She only ran today as she had a puncture!

DT,  when you decide if you are doing Manchester message me and I will let you know where to park! Start/finish is Old Trafford, so just south of the city centre...but the best way to get there is to park some distance away and get the tram.

And as others have said, you can't PB every time, so don't be too disheartened about today.

DT: saw your Nottingham result! Not all bad, and I would definitely do Manchester...and take it easy until then! The Manchester course is as flat as you will get anywhere, with the only slight rises over railway bridges and the like.

Hope the weather is good for Ryan in Nottingham.

Well done this morning OL! How much of the parkrun was before/after/in the middle?! Is Woodbank back to the proper course now? Only small puddles at Platt Fields today so lots of PBs. Any plans for there, Stretford or Burnage before Abingdon?

Nice 10, WP!

Nice shoe buying, LMH!

Sounds a tough morning, Blisters!

What: just under 40 mins fartlek, fairly hard but controlled in parts, particularly on undulations.

Why: coaching, and making the girls work fairly hard. And to take Leicester's first half performance off my mind!

Go well tomorrow, Ryan and RFJ...and any other racers.

Definitely get new shoes whilst they are in the sale, LMH! You will be needing them soon anyway! As many pairs as you can afford! Have you used your voucher in Nottingham yet? Can it be used online?

Shame you weren't at parkrun this morning! One of the ex students has his first orthopaedics job so I bent his ear about a few leg niggles!

What: parkrun completed in 25:51

Why: raced Thursday and coaching pm so it was nice and easy. Deliberately didn't warm up so that I could use the first couple of ks to loosen up. Pleased with how easy it was. Might not be saying that this afternoon though!

Thanks for starting the lyrics again, LMH...not that I know them! Take care with the knee!

Enjoy Zurich, Emz!

What: will run slowly around parkrun

Why: meet up with uni runners, and coaching this pm so will do something again then
