Ello ello, sorry for the vanishment... Do you like my new word?
So sorry about ur aunt RR, I hope you can find peace in the coming weeks and months x
Was fun parkrunning with Malcs on Sat, although I'm blaming the cold I have on his brining young people with him, those carriers of disease!! Didn't have quite the run I wanted - it was a pb 20:53, but only 8s quicker than my pb at Colchester Castle parkrun which I set in July. Colchester is known to be quite a challenging course because you have to go up this godawful hill twice during the second half, but I am now starting to think the predominantly flat/downhill first half is a big advantage. Dulwich started on an up. That said, I did have quite a heavy training week last week swim, bike, run, weights, and I clearly was beginning to come down with something. A shame as I was expecting, and training would indicate that I'm in shape for 20:30ish at Colchester and probably a bit quicker on a totally flat course. Either that, or at the ripe old age of 28 I've hit my peak!
I believe that Sarah can claim her sub 20
Malcs/Nayan I also hate 10ks- they used to be my favourite, but since I've done more long training, and the expected 10k pace has come up, they just plain hurt! Least a 5k is over in 20ish minutes... 10k is prolonged pain!
