Ditto Scott P what happened at D-Day, hope you're ok?
I know a few people had late chip replacements so weren't in the initial results but looks these have been corrected since, and I saw Ben Danny + Darren from Lordshill at the finish but no sign of you?
As for me, D-Day was a poor run but that was to be expected. Had a much better couple of weeks after Netley 10K since my last post, finally feeling fresh after London, a comfortable tempo parkrun to third place amidst a 10 miler, but then followed a whopping six mile week thanks to a banging sinus cold this last week.
Thankfully the ear+headaches were gone by D-Day but still not feeling 100%, and unsurprisingly my usual summer run issue kicked in today where I barely sweat, just get hotter and slower and the HR/effort goes through the roof whilst people I beat in the winter cruise by. So 1min slower than Netley, and 2.5mins slower than Eastleigh!
But as I said not unexpected, was more about making up the numbers for HRRL points as Stubb in contention to win Men's A Div 1, B Div 1 and B Div 2, and getting myself into the individual Top 30. D-Day is unlikely to count in my best 7 results though unless a LOT of people had worse shockers than me on the day!
Nice picnic and walk around nearby Staunton Country Park with the wife and son after though - I caught the Sun too
Scott just curious do you do your own bike maintenance or go to someone local?
Also interesting to note you had a cold and bloating and wind together recently, as I've had the same this week and it's unusual for me so had assumed that they were related eg gastro virus rather than separate issues. Had a stitch in my back today too and I don't think that's ever happened before.
