Jees you lot have been busy writers over the weekend..My input
1. Never owned a car, but passed my test in 1998. Drive the Missus' Renault Megane now and again.
2. Tbe double parkrun. Yes Aylesbury - Tring sorts the men out from the boys New Years day. I did Aylesbury in 17.07, then 8/9 miles run (6.50mm) to Tring and did 19.55. Yes it is bloody knackering
Good racing from Pete and Dachs. I think they are very decent, 8am is obscene and there's no way you can run your best that time of day. My Vets 10k champs thing at the OS was 9am and I did 34.11! Felt like crap.
Similar to a 11am 1500 yesterday at the Eastern Vets final at Bedford. Won it in 4.16, easing down in the last 100 more due to necessity! Won the 3000 in 9.13, 800 in 2.06 and the relay 800 bit was about 2.12 apparently. Decent day, liked my 800 the most, although the 1500 got the highest age grade. My mate Matt Pyatt from Ryston did nearly all the same races and took most of them out, doing a few seconds slower for each race. Usually just see him the same time every year.
I 've applied for the England v40 team in the home xc in Glasgow in November. Might strike lucky.
