Some great stuff posted over the past couple of days - great to see!!
Excellent long runs from Dr.D, Bedders, CC2, HR, AW, JH1, Jimbob, Toro, padams, TS, Steve 6 and coro (and apologies if I've missed someone off - I bet I have!)
Well done to joolska and CC2 at the Nationals yesterday, and well done to postie, Pi man, RS and CW today.
Welcome to MA too. Was bloomin' windy today so I wouldn't get too hung up re your time. A club mate of mine ran 1'26ish there today and he'll almost definitely go sub-3 at VLM (he did 2'54 last year), so you're on the right track.
Snake Lane 10 for me today. Blimey it was windy! 30mph with gusts of over 50mph apparently. Lovely. And the last 5.5 miles were all straight into the teeth of it too. Finishing time was 64'11 which is crap really (over 5 mins outside my best for the course), but I actually ran well and am happy enough. Despite the conditions I somehow ran a very slight negative split, and passed LOADS of folk in the second half. I felt really strong too - couldn't really go much quicker but could have carried on type thing. The last mile was the fastest too, so loads of positives to take. The 2 main ones being I was pain-free and I actually enjoyed it. Blimey. I tagged a few on before and after too to give me a decent longish run, so a good morning out.
Was good to catch up with a few folk too, but sorry I didn't see wardi - saw him in the results but not in the flesh, but not to worry.
