I am familiar with jam and cream rings, but I wasn't in charge of catering.

Think Telford residents would be upset to hear that they live in Birmingham.  My fast 10K shot this year is going to be Eynsham in late November.  It is apparently flat and fast, and has a good field by local 10K standards, if nothing like the ones you mention.

The problem with a lot of them is that they're in December, and that's a month where I really struggle to get to any races due to family and other stuff.

Ah, I see Bus. Yes, now you mention it, I do vaguely remember the meeting the whole club had where we agreed to arrange the dates so as to be as inconvenient to you as possible.  It was a constructive meeting, and we had Jammie Dodgers afterwards.

Matt - no Leeds for me, don't think I'll be able to swing that one again.  I need to find a new city to run a fast race in to convince my wife she wants a weekend away.  Can definitely see you getting back into the 32s.

Simon, yes I assumed it wasn't 5K when I saw mid 15 runners doing low 14s cross country.  Hoping it won't be too mucky.

How is it our fault?

Very handy reps there Pete, heading towards a mid 17 5k potentially. Pretty speedy in any case.

Dean, sorry to hear about your sickness woes. It's annoying when it keeps happening, but it's only XC season, so at least you aren't missing enjoyable races.

Sounds a good trip to the 'Dam IC. Not sure who that RRR would've been, can't tell from the results. We get everywhere.

Sounds like you're stacking up the races Matt, good to see you getting your mojo back. Target for Leeds? Yet another 32:33?

Track tonight. Decided on a tempo, as I missed my tempo slot on Monday, so a track 10k tempo it was. Rather surprised myself by doing 33:16, feeling hard but controlled, and could probably have tacked on another mile if necessary. Of course, this stuff is a bit easier on a track than on the road, but still a decent nights work.

Southern XC relays on Saturday. It's our debut in this event, should be a good blast.

300s, just the 6, and this time I started from the 1500 (or where i'd imagine it is), so i'd end at the 0/400m line

In technical track runner parlance, we call this the 'finish line'.

Good rep work

Because, Bus, sooner or later I'm going to turn up to a race and get beaten by somebody dressed as Princess Leia or the Statue of Liberty.  It's only funny when it happens to other people.

Hey, most of the men in tight shorts are running after me.

To be honest, this thing of fast runners running quick times in costume is getting pretty old now.  Just showing off, innit.  We should all club together to pay one of the Kenyans to run a sub 60 half and a 2:08 marathon dressed as Iron Man, and then we can all get back to doing it properly.

I refuse to believe that anyone has done a 400 in 55.81 whilst juggling.  That is ridiculous.

Nice run CC, sounds like you're in really good shape. Find a race somewhere with sensible weather.

Decent repping Bus, and good to see something other than 0.5m reps.

Nice long run double PMJ. You in marathon training again?

Tough session Pete, you're tickling all manner of speeds and distances there.

Matt you bastard, you did the same session as me but faster.

SG, supposedly easy pace starts around 6:40, but I'm quite happy to be doing 7:20-7:30ish. A lot of my easy runs I've got a rucksack on going to work or back. Anyway, the Kenyans happily do 8s sometimes, so we are probably all doing it wrong.

Track session tonight, like Matt I did 6 x 1 mile (yes I started on the right line PMJ). No 4:50s, but 5:03, 5:05, 5:06, 5:04, 5:04, 5:03 was plenty quick enough. Decent stuff.
