Welcome back Fishy - good to see you on here again.
Congrats on the podium spot OO - sounds as though you're right back into it.
Surprise parkrun podium for me as well - I was running in the Bear Grylls Survival 10K (i.e. a bit of running and plenty of obstacles such as monkey bars, walls, carrying heavy things so not really playing to my strength!) in north London so decided to try out the Gunpowder Park parkrun near Waltham Abbey.
Settled into a good rhythm from the word go and found myself in a pack of 3 some way behind the leader who'd shot off. To cut a long story short, one of the guys was dropped with about 1K to go and then I managed a decent sprint finish to come in second.
Not particularly quick (19:45) but the course is allegedly 5.1K so probably worth 19.20/25 on an accurately measured course. Given I still had a bit of yesterday's 15 miler in my legs, I'm pretty happy with that.
Good luck tomorrow GM.
Back to watch the rugby and hoping for a better second half.
