Yes that sounds nice Reg...lovely scenery etc.
Bus - middle aged class women? Bet half of them had the old 'Breton style white and blue hooped top/bodywarmer combo on. They're like an army and my mum is paranoid now after I pointed it out . Nice run too..
Cortina - clumsy sod! Hope it's ok now though!
So Highgate 10,000 Saturday night. Not ideal prep as I had to go to the SAL at Basingstoke in the morning with the missus. And as she was officiating I then had to jog 3 miles to the station to get the train in.
So, weather was a bit breezy, not too bad. Settled in on around 79's, although was aiming for 1.20's. Felt great first half, hit 5k in 16.30 odd. Then as expected the lack of mileage and a bloody slight stitch curtailed my progress, but tried to forget about it and it slowly eased off. Ran with Jim C from Harrow for virtually the last 10 laps and he just edged me over the last lap.
So 33.15 in the end - pleased I didn't crash completely and as Jim beat me I was the slowest V40 there going by PO10! Although Kojo and Greenwood are stupidly fast. Funny running through a beer tent too. Another great night down there, although I doubt many others in the RW forum world know much about it..free too!
Watching the mens and womens race was a treat, although 'our' KA didn't have her best run and may not make it to Rio, we'll see. The speed of the top blokes..wow.
