Nick - I did   It was a little bit confusing to be honest.  I got there early, spoke to one guy who was collecting money and told him it was my first time and who did i need to see etc but he said the bloke i needed to see wasn't around.  Then next minute we were all running off towards Sale water park. 

We then all gathered round and he pointed out the routes for A,B and C groups (i had no idea what group i was meant to be in) and off everyone went.  I asked a couple of blokes who were around me which group i should run with and they said B which they were in so i just stuck with them.  We ran the first few k really easily and everyone else ran off into the distance.  Then at some point we decided to speed up, ran about 3-4k at tempo then a couple easy then a couple hard.

So it was good to go for a run with other people but it was confusing what exactly we were meant to be doing as a group.  I found that with Altrincham though even on track sessions.  I think its just a case of getting used to the different sessions and just cracking on with it each week.

Jason - I spoke to one bloke (Gary??) who was waiting for you but i didn't see him again (or yourself) but sure we will see each other one week as I'm sure ill be back.  Ended up running with two guys called Craig and i think the other was Martin?

Yep the water station was a lady and a bit later on 2 kids handing gels straight out of the boxes.  Wasnt very well signposted at all and wasnt even clear it wasnt just some random people handing out sweets.

SJ - Cheers for the info.  Chomping at the bit for a decent run again now and P&D has me down for recovery all this week again but i think i will go along and see how i get on.  I'll be the shy guy stood at the back who looks lost   I only know one person from Sale who i ran back from parkrun with once, his name was Moran.  he was twice my age and quicker than me

SaintJason - tried to PM you but all your details are private so it appears I cant.  Regarding Sale sessions on Tuesdays it mentions on the link that men should be in the 30-36min 10k range otherwise they may struggle   I'm absolutely nowhere near that (43min PB).  Are there others that would be in my range?
