My #asics262 journey to Paris: Sub-3:30 Malcolm

Posted: 22/11/2014 at 13:00

Well done Stan, there lies the magic of running, completely unpredictable!

A laboured 21.32 today getting overtaken by your students. A very crowded and frustrating start, a girl stopping dead in her  tracks and running BACKWARDS to pick up her dropped phone, directly in front of me. I may have taught Kaia her first swear word. Said girl wandered off into 'Wonderland of music', running all over the path in front of me for the first two km. I may have dusted her on the first hill in a hissy fit.

I might be turning into a grumpy old man. Of course I am far too young for that. If it wasn't for the good craic with the runners after the run, I would consider a quieter more buggy friendly parkrun.

Well done Tigger, first steps on an amazing journey maybe?

Back to Greenpark tomorrow to get whupped by Stan's students. Hmm, pizza!

The mud was a serious energy sapper, glad there wasn't a buggy involved.

Go Stan and Sarah! Sub 20 glory.

Reiki, sorry to hear about the various challenges, hope there is light on the horizon.

Wow, the mighty Malcs scalp by a buggy hugger! Oh if I could dare to dream! Back to buggy this weekend after a 2 week solo.

Did parkrun tourism last weekend at Wakefield. Didn't pick up that most of the course is grass or trails. The grisly goats wearing trail shoes should have been a clue. I was dueling another runner with my best 'Bambi on ice' impressions. Despite his belly laugh handicap at my discomfort he took me down. Was pleased with a 20.40 in those conditions.

Roll on #54 tomorrow!

First solo parkrun since April. Titanic struggle with two old rivals. Took a scalp with 19.54. This with no warmup and realising its a solo run 2min before start! Seriously chuffed!

I am making a public declaration of intent: sub 3-30 at Manchester next year. Entered already for a flat, fast course! God willing and injury free............

We should do a forum parkrun rendezvous

Might have an enter for the Asics do-da. Seem like some cracking people involved.

Anyone else thinking of Manchester next year besides Stan (hope to meet you there or at Huddersfield Parkrun- look for the red buggy and the White cap). I believe it is really quick.

Hey Sticky, well done awesome time in a great race, especially that last hill before the finish. Think that nailed my cramp!

Sarah you did a great job pacing, I kept looking for you on the cutbacks. In short you paced me from a distance.

Thanks for the parkrun wishes RR, Angela, Stan and Malcs ( and anyone else I have forgotten due to baby brain.) The run was a bit surreal really. As Stan mentioned the start is packed and I got held up with the buggy. In addition a kid with earphones swerved across my path to drop off a jacket. He very nearly tipped the buggy over as it carreered across his path on two wheels. Needless to say I wasn't polite about my  thoughts. To his credit he apologised afterwards.

Mini Hans had a meltdown 10 minutes before start that necessitated a preemptive feed and lightning nappy change. Despite all the stress I ran a solid 21.31 so not a PB but ok. I just felt I was working hard for an average pace. I guess that's running for you.

However I have 50 under my belt and I felt quite proud to have done half of those pushing mini me. I do wonder where I would be sans buggy though.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

So, parkrun 50 this weekend. Do I blast sans buggy or do I chase sub 21 with buggy? Or maybe dress up as a pumpkin and scare little kiddie runners.

Saw Yorkshire Marathon TV coverage. Malcs can I have your autograph? How cool was that pastor?

Two easy runs this week. Going to start building speed for a certain Manchester Marathon next year.

Hey Angela, Cape Town is the most beautiful city and well worth a visit. I have done TO and it is amazing but will always be the little brother to Comrades. C has the history and prestige. C is the original and longest running ultra. The cutoff is tough but makes the drama more intense and the medal more worthwhile.

As much as I would love to do both, all the training in one year would be unfair on our young family. 

After your IM perhaps Marasthon Desable?
