Bloody drivers! Last week running to MK some woman stopped on a crossing by Tesco when the lights were green to let people cross, very nice, but it was a dual carriageway and the car In the other lane nearly ran them over! Really clever. Hope knee not too serious AG.
Good parkrun Pete and hope not too breezy tomorrow Scott, although I know the area, not much shelter there!
So the Wolverton 5. Started off and felt pretty strong, first mile in 5.02, but the mile markers are notoriously dodgy here! It's one small loop first so you come back into the wind past the start running south and onto the big loop. I think 2 miles was 10.23 and by the time we has reached 4 I knew I wasn't going to beat my 26.00 PB. The last 3/4 mile you hit the wind again, bit like going from 2pm to 9am looking at a clock face.
ended up with 26.23/26, which I was happy with as it was bloody windy and my mate from Herne hill did 26.00 and he would expect 25.20 ish usually, we all thought about 20-30 secs off for the wind. Placings wise, beat my V40 competitors- I thought until I found out the 3rd placed guy turned 40 three days before! Luckily they do a one prize per person rule so I should get the 50 smackers next week.
