Some more good racing at the weekend.
Jools - another big PB, you're on fire! You can probably afford to have a bit of recovery/consolidation over the next month or two before the next campaign.
Toro - fantastic run, going watchless can be quite liberating!
DrD - very impressive sub-75.
ThR - you can't peak for every weekend, sounds like yours was a week or two early. Still a solid run though. Have a week or two of just easy running.
TR - solid run off not much mileage.
CW - very nice considering! I guess you were fairly relaxed with no pressure which may have helped.
Dachs - massive PB at that level. Beat my PB by 3s too, which is quite upsetting. I saw the results yesterday - unbelievable field, I need to get up there one year to run it.
I've probably missed several others, sorry.
Good weekend for me. 12M on Saturday inc. Park Run in 16:30 - fastest of the year for me and felt fairly comfortable, running solo, was wearing fairly heavy trail shoes (for the hour offroad beforehand) and lost some time lapping people and avoiding ducks (I actually accidentally kicked a duck at one point whilst trying to avoid them crossing the path - it was fine though!).
It was also a good experiment on my foot - it was hurting a bit on the hour beforehand, but no pain at all during the park run, then hurting a bit on the way home. But it's definitely getting better, so should be fine for intervals tomorrow (which would be OK anyway as they're fast!).
Then just over 3 hours on the bike yesterday with the usual group - good fun with some racing to various points.
