Overdone it?

Hi Muddy - did the zapping work for you? I find the masters gives me hope for the future as there's always some really old but decent runners there. My local nemesis is a pensioner he's better at steps than me but I can usually out run him on the flat, trying not to be beaten by granddad is always a battle!

You are right she's not affiliated  - it was a very annoying race I thought I'd shaken her off my tail then in the last half mile we had to run up a small hill and my BF was spectating he started making me laugh and she zoomed past. She would've got me anyway as my legs died on the hill. Here's the bling… today I had pins with electric currents stuck in my feet, it was one of the most unpleasant things I've ever experienced.

Hi - I've been abroad on holiday for a few weeks and was really busy for the month before that so had limited time to fanny around on the internet…but now I've got loads of time! You can do the promathon with a hangover, it often has the whiff of stale booze about it. I'll probably do it, come for a drink in the Espy pub on the prom after but first you have to jump in the sea...

Hello Overdone it chums, I've overdone it and got a touch of PF so just a bit jogging for me at the moment. But prior to that I managed a sub 39min 10k by 1 second! (on a course that's got quite a bit of downhill shhhh) I also won a GB HM masters V40 gold medal but I was the only runner in the race eligible for it so I could've walked.

Anyway I can confirm that Lit is an almost elite top club runner who runs for a club with a lot of very fast women. 

Another vote for alpkit head torches mine was very reasonably priced and has lasted ages.

Sad news about your friend DT.

 for Skinny for your PB especially as you're not doing vo2 max work if I've understood your training plan correctly. Well done Muddy for being fast. CharlieChris that sounds like a decent time on a tough course so  for sub 5 handicap.

So is there a thread 5k attack smack down happening? I'm supposed to do a parkrun this month for our club championships but I'm not sure if I'll have time/can be arsed getting out of bed early. My virus has almost gone so it's back to the track for some punishment reps tomorrow.

Square cows? Rabbit sheep are Border Leicesters (too much time spent at agricultural events) but what are square cows?

Good track action shots there and well done Tommy. I'm still ill but had a nice ramble through Kensington Gardens trying to follow the Diana walk but got lost.

Ha ha! That sums up my running at the moment too, I've just had a text from a friend saying 'saw you out running, looked like you were struggling' cheers mate!

Good to hear you've got some answers Mace.

Well done on the PB DT but I say that in a grudging way as now that I'm in the relegation zone!  for Lit for 3rd lady without even trying.

I did a very slow 10k last weekend, knew I would be shit due to a cold which still hasn't gone away but I was surprised by just how rubbish I was, one of my miles was slower than MP it was on grass and into a strong headwind but even so… Luckily no fast old ladies turned up so I was 1st V40 and got vouchers plus a special medal.

Hmmm don't think I've ever tried the Guide's so something to take a look at. Like you DT I would like something lighter for HMs but it would just give my shoe buying extra complications!

I've got a stinking cold so haven't run this week and I'm racing at the weekend I doubt my choice of footwear is going to help rescue this one.

I also need new road shoes, I always wear asics gt 2000's but the latest model doesn't fit me properly. Last time I went to the shoe shop they refused to sell me any trainers saying none were right for me.
