I've come 3rd before, but never a win. And it was a horrible day so only 14 hardy folks turned out to the PR. Up against me were a Canterbury harrier and a 14 year old lad on speed, other than that it was folks who were more built for comfort not speed so no really competition! LOL
Today, 11.3M done at MP+30s - notable points - 1 OR (young lass, not seen her before), 7 or 8 cyclists, a few walkers and 2 x dog chases (me being the target of their chase - grrrrr). Lots of NW out in the Kentish countryside. Lovely, relatively mild and dry (contrary to the forecast). Up to date on jantastic and 100% so far! Whoop whoop.
TJ, raising the dreadmill 1 notch gives you some resistance. When it's flat it is essentially moving your feet and your muscles just need to make sure they keep up. When you've got to lift them a bit too your times and speeds (and effort) are closer to what they would be out on a flat road with zero wind.
Off to see Nils Lofgren tonight.... looking forward to that enormously.
