Overdone it?

Yes, there are 2 5 milers on consecutive Wednesdays, something like 17th and 24th. Id do both if I thought I could make them comfortably, but working in Worcester makes it that bit harder than when I was in Solihull. I will probably target the latter race which I think is the Autumnal 5.

14 with 11 at hmp plus 30 last night. Came out at 7.05 mm which is fine given it was ridiculously hot and I'd raced 3 times in previous 7 days.

Just did 14 with 11 at hmp plus 30. I think the accumulation of 3vraces in previous 7 days and a fairly sweltering evening did me. Came out at 7.05 so I'm target thereabouts, but felt really trained last few miles as didn't take a drink out.

They are slick, Charlie!

Lou, strange you mention that.....I was chatting with my mate after parkrun as was saying how what was almost a show stopper for so long seems to have passed. The last time I was stopped in my tracks was probably glucs 20 in March. The Sprint finish today and Wednesday was proper flat out without issue. 

Just looking back, last 11 months I've raced 19 times with 12being pbs. One race was never a pb opportunity due to profile, and the races that weren't pbs were either seconds off a pb or at the least 2nd or 3rd best ever times.  Next up is autumnal 5 with my 5 mile pb being my oldest and weakest. decent position given that two years prior it not been close to a pb.

No, 5k is still very short. Think today was 71.91 and Wednesday was 72.69 I think. The difference is i don't feel I could have squeezed another drop out of today, whilst Wednesday I think I could have.

Have a good break, Skinny.

Sounds crazy, Madbee!

As I'm off on holiday Thursday, then have a minor op, running will be struggling untill mid August, I decided on a sub 19 parkrun attempt this morning. Given it run two hard 10ks in last week I wasn't feeling bouncy. However, came out 18.59, with an almighty Sprint finish. 

This parkrun mnormally measures 3.08. They did reverse route today and came out 3.15. Now it was no longer so shows inaccuracy of gps. Splits were 6.04, 6.00, 6.06 and 5.35 for last 0.15. Pretty pleased with that in circumstances.

aren't the county championships simply interclub events, as they are conditional on club membership? They count.
