Nope I love a bit of meat FeFe


Mouse how do you know what table I was at? Stalker! Ah the photo on fb? We went to Rubicon café (Chandos St) for the breakfast, you've got to check the cake out! Definitely worth a detour.

2 reps of the hill from Portway to Clifton.

Also a Clifton Sausage eaten and a 1/2 of 8% Exhibition cider but no harm done.

Discovered a lush cafe with amazing Orange, Lemon and Pistachio cake.

Drove close to the mousehole on my way home but no mouse droppings seen.

Haha new ultra plan :)

I tried to enter on RW and it rejected my card. Then I remembered I was doing the Ridgeway 40 the previous day! Lucky escape I guess! Another year I will do this. I quite like self-nav events

Water bottles conundrum

Posted: 10/04/2015 at 20:54

Tried soft flasks but couldn't get on with them, I was worried I would tear them with my fingernails and they were a nightmare to squeeze back into the Salomon pack. Also found them hard to fill up and drink from. In fact I didn't rate the Salomon pack at all, and sold it on straight away.

I use a pack with a bottle in a back pocket, also room for one up front. Find it difficult to extract the bottle from back pocket whilst running but drinking while running is never a problem. 

Reading Half Marathon Red Parking and why is it not in Events

It wasn't a hot day, it's march for heavens sake! Is it not beyond your wit to have a bottle of water in the car?

wannabe ultra runner?

Did 30 miles on Sunday split as a half marathon in the morning and a 16 mile trail race in the afternoon (the extra mile was back to the car after the half)

Had to run rather faster in half than I wanted to, so I could make the 2nd race. Ran that relatively hard too as when my legs are knackered I just want to get it over with.

Overall 30 miles in about 4:10.

Compton 40 on Saturday which will be a very steady plod aiming for about 7:15

Reading Half Marathon - Headphones

The hill at mile 3 used to have a long, very gradual slope before the steep bit, now it's just straight up. So same climb overall but over a shorter distance. I never notice the hill at mile 8 as by then I'm into my stride.


In 2007 I ran 1:29 at Reading and finished about 515th, this year 515th was 1:25, conditions were arguably better in 2007 too, less wind and cooler. A warm early spring day always catches out those who can't do heat.

At the front Reading has more quick runners (see above point) so spurs people on. Wokingham is definitely as quick a course as Reading but being earlier in the season it doesn't get as many runners in peak condition.
