Unlucky Pete - are you trying out a new aftershave or something???

Iron - you do get about a bit with your job, that's for sure!

Ric - depends on who's running and who's riding I guess . To be fair though, it doesn't take much of an incline to strip away the bio-mechanical efficiency gain of a bike. Probably just below the point where you are forced into a 1:1 gear ratio?

Bloody good work Dean - bet you're team were pleased with you!

Not sure I could do 12M on a treadmill 

LSR was slow, but OK. Usual 14M hilly xc route. I felt like throwing in the towel all the way up to mile 7, but persevered.

The highlight was actually on one of the few bits of tarmac on the route - a small hill that goes into Speen from Hughenden side linking tow footpaths. A largish group of road cyclists took me unawares and the leaders started passing me. I needed to cross the road and go through the group to get back off the road. but didn't want to stop and wait for them to pass. So instead, I sped up, overtook the middle bunch, and passed through the gap in front of them and the leaders. They looked both surprised and miffed in equal measure

Just did it for the buzz no doubt? Must have been a good mate!

Sorry AG - was half asleep when I read that and didn't notice!! Great minds obviously think alike 

Right, LSR in a mo, which I feel about as much like doing as I would stitching up Ric's arse

Ah, I miss Samir....

Slowest parkrun of the year today - legs just not up to it. It didn't help that whoever laid the course out added a wee bit on by the bowls green that took us up a grassy bank and added on a couple of sharp corners!

Still, being first finisher by a country mile was partial compensation . Glad everyone else was off pr touring!

Sorry Reg, too busy to post a pun yesterday so I'll shoe hornet in here instead.

I was bitten by a horsefly once - very painful! Anti histamine cream helped, but it was swollen for days. Also got stung by something on the lip running in the middle of no where. It swelled quikcly and hurt like hill, but luckily nothing more as I was miles from anywhere and not a clue what the French for "help Im in anaphalactic shock is"!

Great pr anecdotes Pete

Right, must get going to the Rye....

Cheers Dean/Philip - seems like good advice. I might have left it a wee bit late in life, but I definitely want to try some more track now! 

If I'd known you were there Simon I'd have come and said hello!

As for the Brownlees - Steve Way on Facebook has an interesting take on Ali's role as a Super Domestique....difficult to argue with, but doesn't detract from them as a couple of sound guys with a bloody great bucket load of talent!

Horses for course I guess. I've never really fancied being coached - too pig headed 

SG - definitely. Trouble is, the first lap felt easy and I was running without a watch.

Must run a mile race more often - went out for a 6.1M hilly XC job and did the fastest pace on the route for a very long time!

Cheers AG . They sound like fast reps (especially the 40 which I can udnerstand easier!). Sounds like a bit of a faff that session though.
