Keith - I enjoyed reading your race report . You had a really good stab at it and have managed to see a lot of positives which you will be able to use next time.
KK - brilliant park run time . Have you tried smashing your pb on a road 5k?
((slowkoala)) - that's a lot of mishaps for you and your family. Hope you are all well now.
Big G - training most weeks is similar. If not too tired a recovery run (3-5m) on Monday, Tuesday I take our beginners group then run 4 - 7m later, Wed I take our daytime group out for about an hour (about 5 m) plus extra hour dog walking, Thursday & Friday 4 - 6m each day and some weeks I walk 5 - 9 m with a friend. Saturday off! Since I started running my daughters dog in January all my runs have been with the dog and although we are out for longer we don't cover as much mileage (it's a lot of fun though). Also I haven't been able to get my midweek long run in (used to be about 11 -12m) or my weekly hill session. So I guess I need to try to get those rescheduled in.
Attended a workshop this evening with Malcolm Balk which focussed on posture and running efficiency so I'm now hoping that by concentrating on those techniques I might be able to run easier (though he did say that the calves will feel it for a good few weeks ). Anyway I really enjoyed the workshop (apart from getting videoed before and after ).
Also saw first ducklings of the year today. Single brood with mum - six teeny tiny ones (4 dark brown and 2 lighter brown/yellow)
