Do let me know if anyone has any experience of bruised / broken ribs.
So where were we? Many congratulations Angela on your Round the Island victory, loved the gripping report we have come to expect, but somehow misread that you had beaten Paula!
Malcs was going to ask if you'd heard from VMLM GFA, but you have, and so has my brother,, so please don't tell me I have mucked my entry up.
They did actually move the goalposts on FV runners last year to give out less GFA entries. The criteria had been very generous before, FV55 was 4h15 for example, and they reined in acorss the board such that it's sub 4, I guess to reflect higher representation and keep some places for the ballot [they also sell more golden etc bonds than ever before]
What did you want to know about the 4 x 100m victory? You could be right.
Super - I did do the Richmond Park Half, and that was a boost as I was so strong. I was fed up doing all my runs on my own, there are so many buildup events for Spring so I'm more used to that approach is part of it....aimed to do 10:00 miles but on the day elected to race the final of the 4 laps, and hit average pace 09:45, with a storming contest taking up most of the lap, in which I prevailed hehheh.
The photos also show balance & a rare level of runneryness, no contortions or collapsing, so quite encouraging.
Ankle is all good! There is always a new thing for us to deal with eh?
Freemers - that is one stylish trophy, I do enjoy the deliberate grotesque, and exchange gifts on this basis with at east one sibling. at least I think that's what's going on.
Good running Mr P despite our achilles and mystery issue.
Cool to see you all again, I'm not exactly confident about the Newham 10K next week...on subject of which my 10K pb is faster than 2 x my 5K PB, am sure I've said this before.
Was up at the trials in Birmingham last weekend extending the groupie career, and supporting some of the athletes I work with - had a fab time, but didn't exactly need the gym.
Did manage 14 out & back along the Worcester canal on Sunday, plus a fast treadie 5K, indeed wasnt too bad last weekend, have worsened this week - my brother left half an hour after me as he's faster & expected to catch me, but didn't because he ran into & with Paula! on her own with no Crammie this year.
Off to dose myself up. More soon.
