Thanks for the table updates, Skinny. Good to hear you've got plans afoot to get you toeing the line at Wilmslow too.
Had lots of comments on last night's club run - not surprising as we were running through the city centre...pretty sure none of them were complimentary either.
Lit - Nice list of honours, but more impressive is having said you were knocking on the door of the top 1500 female runners in the country, have you seen the latest RB updates? A combination of your HM, plus a tweak to the calculations (my ranking has leapt too) means that you've leapfrogged 500 others, and are now knocking on the door of the top 1000! That's just showing off. And you do have a very high cadence - very noticeable on that vid. Increase your stride length whilst keeping the same cadence and you'd be very fast indeed. Wonder what would help with that? Bit of middle-distance training and racing perhaps...has anyone ever suggested that to you before?
Tommy - James Blunt - loving that! I did actually 'laugh out loud' - I refuse to use the acronym. I found a pic of you from last Sunday's 10k - can I post it?
Thanks, Richard. I am indeed still chuffed, and now have my Sweatshop vouchers*. Enjoy your weekend - sounds bonkers to me, but will be a great feeling at the end of it providing you pull through in on piece! And yes, apply to Nottingham. Come and enjoy the happy throng in the Queen of the East Midlands. Then Lit and I can fight over you as well as Tommy for your prospective club membership.
* Which Lit isn't having.
Good luck to the racers - Lit at the Inter Counties (still grumpy it's not being televised) and at Ashby on Sunday (don't race that!), Mace at Lydd and Richard with his double-header.
I've been trying to resist the temptation of going out and having a bash at a parkrun all week, as I had several PB/strong performances in shorter distances immediately off the back of 10k races last year. The forecast of a breezy morning is helping with that, so will probably take the opportunity of a lie in, and then headout for another LT session late morning instead. Will fit a race of some description in next week instead. Should be the Midland 12 Stage Relays, but not sure how the team is coming together for that, so have a fall back plan of either a simple parkrun, or more preferably a tear up over 800m at Saffron Lane if they'll accept a late entry.
