ps apologies, just realised this would give 4 notification emails
Forgot to ask Bus, now i see what you mean with the strange cones, although i reckon some chump has kicked a couple.
At least it's a parkrun where you respect the cones though. Both Gadesbridge and South Oxhey had them as strange outliers, with people seemingly free to go as close to them as they fancied, or just cut tonneloads of corner off!
Fairly new young guy at work,recently had a mad regime, where most days he'd run 7miles, get a train, run 2miles. x2 a day, x5 a week. So around 80mile weeks, as he might not have a full 5 days doing it all...but on average.
Perhaps not surprisingly, he found that tough going, so cycles the 2m bits now, and has a day of pure cycling. But still probably pushing 60?
Good guy though, told him of the parkrun scene, and where he lives he has tonne load of choice. Dulwich is his 2nd or 3rd closest, so strongly recommended that as the one to do.
Will be interested to see what he could put down with that base mileage!
In showing him some different runs, I noticed Bushy's 2nd place was about 17.20s this week, out of about 1,200! Small sharp end after the sub 16 winner!
