Hi Josh - welcome back and take it easy building up mileage - listen to Alehouse!
Duck well run and a good result given that your legs weren't in it and the conditions. Another time...
Good result TR. Parkrun seems to be responsible for a new generation of fast youngsters. An 11 yr old girl just ran a 7:09 2k junior parkrun!
Good track session Velloo - it's never too late!
Looking good for GNR Mr V.
Birchwood 10k this morning. A target was PB, B target was sub 45, C target was finish and get the luxury bath towel! Is was very wet and windy early doors so much so that when the time came to get out of the car for my warm up I considered snuggling back down for another half hour and just going for the C target!
Rain stopped before the start and I got my sunglasses out! It was still very windy though. Miles 1 and 2 went well and I thought that I may be on for a pb, but the wheels fell off in mile 3, and it was a struggle from there on! I'd like to say I didn't take it to the well, but when I tried to pick up the pace over the last few hundred metres there was nothing there!
44:15 (25 secs outside PB), and the BS factor says the wind and undulations were worth at least 26 secs! I'm happy with that considering the lack of consistency recently, and my pb will get slashed when proper training resumes in September.
