Right, catch up done...
Simon – congrats on being the fastest old man on the mud in Old London Town.
Bus, sorry to hear that Herbert’s Hole was windy… Good racing nonetheless.
AG, very well done on finally beating James, he’s been running pretty well over the last year or so, so a good marker. I think I know who the ‘child’ was, he’s got an 8:51 3000m to his name, so not too shabby as kids go.
Good stuff at the cross country as well Pete
Never mind Dean, hopefully you’ve got all your bad luck out of the way in one race.
Nice halfs in the wind PMJ and CC82, sounds like there’s a couple of minutes in those.
Congrats on your first bit of international action PP, and nice medalling work too. Good to be so close to making the scoring positions on your debut. Fantastic experience, I only hope I can be in the kind of shape to run that stuff when I hit the 40s in a couple of years.
As for me, work and home is a bit mental at the moment with a combination of big deadlines and trying to get my youngest's bedroom sorted out, but managed to quietly up my mileage back into the 70s on a regular basis. 12 with 10 @ MP on Monday (59:40), and my first 20 since early 2014 today - 7:04 pace in what can only be described as a stiff breeze. Made the mistake of doing it along the Thames, which made the first westwards half a little tricky, particularly when I ran directly into it on the exposed meadows that make up part of the Reading parkrun course, whilst my feet were at the same time slipping on the mud. Incredibly, those were two of the quickest miles of the run, must have been overcompensating. No track tonight, as I have to go and give a talk for work. Hopefully I will get some free food.
