About me:Now a pentagenerian coffin-dodger. Wirral AC member for last 5 years, unattached prior to that. 1st year of club membership saw lots of PBs set (highlight: 36:31 for 10K). Then sciatic issues, followed by calf injuries when, in response, I tried to change my (carp) running style, took their toll, got a lot slower. Mini-revival from autumn 2008 thru early 2009 (37:51 10K, 84:51 half-mara) the result of uninterrupted training due to slightly improved technique, stretching & regular sports massage. Steep decline from spring 2009.....not yet reversed, but still trying... Other PBs: 600m: 1:36.6 (1993) 800m: 2.14.4 (1994); 1500m: 4:45 (1994); 5 miles: 29:27 (1996)
