Well done OH!

Note to self: really must sort some races out!

Lyrics: no

What: 5.41k largely off road, nice and gentle
Why: taking care. Looking at the last week or so I have increased the ks quite a bit, so need to be cautious. Still very low voume compared to most, but slowly getting there.

Off to watch cricket at OT: suspect it may only before a short while: cold and windy, and probably followed by rain.

Well done parkrunners. Must do another one soon!

What: 9k off road
Why: Struggled a little with tired legs, so not quite as far as planned.

Easter eggs bought...loads in that shop where they put the names on.
Largely grey and cold icy wind: will be well wrapped up later.

Lyrics: familiar, but can't place them. Re yesterday's lyrics the reason I knew them is that "Runaway Dreamer" is Sophie Ellis Bextor's new single, which is why I keep hearing it on the radio.

What: hopefully an hour or so, off road
Why: I say hopefully as my "good" calf is not too happy this morning. Won't run for a couple of hours so I can give it a bit of a stretch.

Off on an Easter egg hunt...all the shops I went in yesterday had sold out! There'll be trouble from the kids!

Well done Mava...and yes, with a mini taper and good pacing you will crack the half! Which one is it?

And 36:21 officially, TR! Good to meet up with you, and your assessment above is pretty well what I would have said. Looking strong! Hope the weekend goes well!

Back to the garden (working, not lazing!).

What: 7.5k with some stops
Why: difficult to run and watch the race without stopping! The running that I did, though, was slightly quicker than usual. Quite a quick but decidely unexeciting two lap course around sunny Salford. And it was: nigh on perfect racing conditions.

LMH: keep hearing this particular song on the radio lately.

Mava: hope it was fun.

Gardening shortly.

WJH: as Scott says, applications need to be in to the AREA secretary (i.e. Southern Counties) via your new club's secretary, by the 10th of the month.

WJH: changing clubs is not straightforward, although it is easier than it used to be! As you have moved you will be claiming change of residence: if I remember correctly if you have moved more than 30 miles, say, you should be ok, but if less they may say that you could still reasonably get to your old club. The rules are here (up to rule 6 I think):,d.ZWU

The usual length of "ban" when you can't compete in team events for your new club is usually four months: you can run as a non-scoring individual.

See you shortly TR! Beautiful day (from behind glass anyway)!
