Malcs, thanks for de-lousing the kids next time... I’m planning on visiting again just before Christmas, and will probably do Brockwell... the 20th, you keen?
Hans C, Its fun doing a bit of parkrun tourism isn’t it? Now there are more in the east, its actually a possibility without paying a silly amount of money in accommodation to do a free run...
Stan, I think parkrun is a strange beast... I managed to do 21:01 in Colchester last sat, which matches my pb there, set in July. This was after staying up past 1:30am watching Greys anatomy and drinking wine, and then oversleeping so I woke up at 8:20 to get to parkrun, I need to leave home no later than 8:40 to get there for the start, and just made it! Well done on your awesome time!! Sometimes the rest in your legs has more benefit than the detriment of being tired/under the weather.
RR, Glad that the Dr doesn’t think its anything serious... hope it all gets sorted soon x
Sarah, Well done in your parkrun even if you didn’t get the official time of sub 20! I can’t believe I exactly matched my pb from July!! What a difference between us if your slowest ever half was 1:53!!! Mine was 2:24.. but that involved drinking wine at Bacchus!! My first half marathon was in 2008 – Royal parks, I did it in 2:15 and swore I would never enter a race that far ever again!
Tigger, I’m sure your 2nd visit to bootcamp tomorrow means you’re a shoe in to win the competition!! Sub 4 here you come!!!
Chris, Welcome, and good luck at bootcamp tomorrow. Definitely stay on these forums, and like Malcs says. YET, is a crucial word. When I first joined these forums my marathon pb was 4:33.... now its 3:39 and I’m going for sub 3:30 in London
