What's up Charlie ? You've been logging decent mileage on strava?
That's a bit keen skinny - I did 15 on Sunday but that was how far it was to get home. Probably would have done a little bit less had I been not so far away.

don't count your chickens Skinny - my 10k performances have been consistently slightly disappointing.

McF has her trophies arranged on the kitchen counter - so she can gaze at them whilst doing the washing up like a scene from a Ken Loach film.

Good stuff everyone. Before you update the ttt skinny, I popped down to Stratford for a stealth Parkrun and mustered 18:15.
More details later.

Skinny - oh come on !! All my effort surely wasn't wasted in my last post !?

Is it supposed to be some sort of poem?  Or did you cut and past it so the formatting went a bit funny?

Muddy - Unfortunately I now have a pointless meeting at lunchtime so won't be able to get out for a run.

Bad luck Tommy - one of the various variable that is difficult to anticipate. Is it covered in Daniels 3rd ed? It's not in the 2nd.
Muddy - I'm planning to go along to edgebaston reservoir at lunchtime for some 10k-specific training.

PBs in 1500m, 5k, 5 mile, HM and M so far this year, but it's the 10k in two weeks that you should really be interested in Skinny.

Velloo - I find travelling even short distances to races with the family massively stressful.  Well done for toughing it out.  (I'm not blaming them I just much prefer only having myself to organise.)

Just realised that I haven't mentioned last weeks Sphinx 5.  I wont do a report as I've now forgotten most of it, but in summary:  It was a very warm and humid evening; I forgot my garmin; I set off much too fast and faded a bit;  time was 30:44, which is decent pb but not as quick as I was hoping.

 Busy few days at the end of last week meant I could only fit in a few short runs, but I did 12 with 6 tempo yesterday.  Then 13 miles tonight with the running club pub run, which included 2 mile jog home from the pub after a pint and some sarnies.  Good for the digestion they say.

Tommy - I occasionally have a look at the Mercia Fell Runners' calender, but I've not got round to doing any of their events.  Maybe I coudl try to fit something in when I'm up in Chesterfield - was yours organised by Dark Peak Runners?
