Tidy runs from TT and Selbs. Jools well done for keeping under the 40 keeping your record intact. You probably shouldn't have run today with the man flu, i'm sure you will kill it at your next race.

Met up with Running Rodent, Scott The Walker , Pottermoss, Radar Sal, ThisisNatty, Nells and HIAHS plus a few wags and habs in tow at the Bupa 10k. There was beer involved and sitting around in the park. I took a crate of Ice Cold Carlsbergs and managed to leave them at bag check. They retained their coldness! The organisers put on a sprint track and sprint coaches for the kids and my two took part in that and burned off some energy. It's been a lovely afternoon and I'm just leaving the west end now with the missis at the wheel.

Prior to all this frivolity there was some quality running from the gang and some healthy pb bashing. I knocked a minute off my 10k to give me a 38.17 with a 1 second neggy split and an outside chance of a place in the Highgate Harriers night of the 10k PBs (next year) - sub 38.30 was a platinum target so I'm well happy to exceed that. Was one of those days where everyone else around me was huffing and puffing. I'm glad I didnt overcook it at Parkrun the other day. That's my 3 A races nailed this year exactly as I wanted 'em.

Good day for me .... 38:17 / 1 second negative split, big I minute pb looked out for Jools and Co and then sat in the park with beers and treats. One of those days where everyone around me was huffing and puffing!

Darlo good luck with your training for the Dam. I'm around, just getting the Boston / London double out of my legs with a few shorter races then I suppose I'm firing the training engine up around mid / end June. Targeting a pb as always but won't have a realistic number until after my Sept half. 3 ish or better ....

Yeah proper murder. That's the last time I offer out free baked goods on this thread.

13 yesterday Inc 5m steady then Finsbury Parkrun at effort but not quite full on, still a few seconds over 20 mins felt comfy and within myself, then 5m easy home, felt like a good workout pre Bupa , nothing planned today apart from some roller action.

right morning all, I'm Bupa 10k'ing as well. Meet up with you guys in the red zone for the start? If you are at a loose end i'll be hanging around the B at the A - Z meeting points in Green Park from about 9am, come and have a cuppa and a moan!  I'm not expecting fireworks on Monday, my fitness is in question, I've done nowt for the last couple of weeks bar plodding around trying to put miles back in the legs. I have been playing music again tho' but where there's band rehearsal there's beer drinking
