Saw a bit of track action last night - Ryan Burling and Cooray loking good and my mate Adam from LBAC looking not so great following on behind!

Quite a warm night in the end? I'm in a 'running denied' strop. Something came up at work so can't do the first Primrose Hill session of the winter this lunchtime.  Hmpf

Dean.....Drinking too much probably. Good session Reg.

Bus. Few of our group down at Stoke Mandeville tonight, including coach Simmons! Couple of Leighton vests there too I think in the mile and 10,000.

..Anyway enough of Parkrun for a bit. Fecking joggers . SG - Yes Tring is slow, like a xc course basically.

*sucks air through teeth*....Well you see a few of these good vets have run before as kids you know - gives them such a massive advantage when they are older . Obviously it doesn't really, but I was jokingly arguing that Dean & the Invicta Kent guy in the 1500's at Watford had an advantage. Fair play to Les Newell - still getting faster with no running background. Bit miffed I didn't join a club when I was younger, but my Dad only started in 1984 and I didn't really think about joining a club too - loved my footie too much! Joined Herne Hill in 2000.

So Luton last night 8 x 1k. Set up was basically all the way round the outside of  2 end to end rugger pitches and then half again. First one 3.12 then mainly 3.07/3.08's with a 3.05 at the end. 90 secs recovery. Felt pretty good and legs felt strong. All good.

Decent PR that one Dean. Yeah - Over to Bedford on Sunday - first time it hasn't been at Aldershot for donkeys years, then looks like I will be doing the nationals as per normal.

SG - Sneaky 8 mile run to Tring from Aylesbury then?. We ought to have a thread competition on combined times for the two

No Reg! Good parkrun SG, 10k ish Bus and training others.

Cycle on the A41? Not unless you have a deathwish I suppose. That place is a racetrack. Good effort Cortina - my only hard ish ride was 23 miles in 1 hour 18 mins in training for my one and only sprint Tri.

Quiet weekend - 11/12 miler Saturday and off to football for the stuffing by City. Pubs in Manc once again excellent though. Marshalled Leighton 10 Sunday am - incorporated the Bucks County champs too, S Beedell had a decent run. Did about 5 miles running about, felt better than I did Saturday morning due to the extra carbs

CC One Of our lot did sub 60 on a similar session, so thought I'd go eyeballs out for the last one! SG, I suppose the last one is tough, but you have some recovery afterwards.

Anyway, 12 miler at about 6.30 tomorrow then off to Manchester for footie

Good stuff all - good celeb stuff PMJ, running Reg and CC82.

Took 3 hours to get to work. Absolute monsoon down to the station - heaviest rain I've seen in Leighton for the 12 years I've lived there. Left 7 ish and it was still hammering down by 8.30. Train delayed, changed at Watford etc..

Good session last night - 12 x 400, in 3 sets of 4. Each set had 400 with 60 secs recovery, 400 with 45 and a 400 with 30. 2 mins recovery between the sets. Think it was 70,69,69,68 - 69,68,67,67 - 70,67,67,62. Felt quite smug as everyone was bolloxed and I felt quite good, one of those nights I suppose! We all felt the first rep of each set was the hardest, presume something to do with your heart rate dropping?

Did it last year - getting a bit jealous tbh (although the race would be a struggle this year)

Any ideas on the forecast? or is it too far away. Weather has been great last 3 years, hoping it will cool down again for everyone.

SG - Why not Aylesbury - got to be the quickest one relatively near? Hope you feel better soon Dachs. Ric - you need to up it mate (the beer)

So hot in the office, can't wait for summer to f**k off now, need to do some mileage. Thought I would look at the Cardiff 10k results. some good low 32's from Colin Snook & Terry Scott which was quite depressing as they are V40 & V45 respectively.

Apparently Terry's favourite month running wise is June. JUUUUNE!!!

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.
