A fumbled effort at a good parkrun time today..... went off to another parkrun (Newbury) and did a 1.25m warm up....they were a little punctual for the start... in that they actually went 3-2-1 at 9am.... me and my mate were still about 75m away and right at the back.... thought I had lapped my garmin..... no I had paused it... and didnt look down till well in to the run... oops.... great run though as overtook loads ie from 352 startes to 24th in official results of 21:06 so was probably my best run for about 8 months as reckon I lost a good 40 secs at the start and working through people.

School boy errors.... but good to catch up with Gobi again...

5.62m for the day

Strek over, do not knowe the lyrics....

Normally apt for me falling over... something I did not do today, despite  plent of opportunities..... The Dirt Half.... a 3 part race.... easy / leg masher / recover... as you will see from the splits and time for one of my old style reports.....

Mile 1 - 7:26 normal congested start and finding feetMile 2 - 7:22 on to the canal tow path and happy with pace
Mile 3 - 7:23 liking this consistancy bit of barging and poor etiqute at the water stop with some taking the first cup then stopping......
Mile 4 - 7:16 dont know where that came from....a tad faster
Mile 5 - 7:25 consistancy is king
Mile 6 - 7:24 and again feeling very strong and good and well on for a seasons best

Half way at 48:38 that was the good bit but now off the tow path

Mile 7 - 8:32 yes that is an eight, words going up this hill **** **** & ****
Mile 8 - 8:01 after the up there was down.... erm not much more like tree and tree root avoidance
Mile 9 - 7:55 more trees / roots and now mud and water......
Mile 10 - 8:34 more of the above plus gates / stiles and wood bridges and big muddy puddles....
Mile 11 - 8:15 evntually find ourselves back on the canal tow path, who has nicked my legs....
Mile 12 - 7:47 Legs totally shot
Mile 13 - 7:52 They even put a kill loop in behind the school with a 10 meter hill, I nearly had to walk it....
Last bit - .23 and finish.... no seasons best, that go blown out by the middle part, finished in 114th from 649 in 1:41:41

Great race, well organised and will be back I think, I knew there was a hill, but not all the XC bits.... must read up more before entering .......

Take care
