Lunchtime job then, mile and half pissing it down, got half way at 2miles, and thought i'd try a different return to the office.
Down some random little woody bit later, and ended in some really odd place, tiptoing across a bridge that must have been about 20cm wide, with massive stoney spikes on.
Walked this bit, as slipping and smashing myself here would probably mean being found a half eaten mess in about 7months.
Got over the "bridge", to find a dead end. Back round, and ended up in some fenced off field. ARSE. Luckily got away with it only costing me an extra half mile.
What did we learn?
Stick to out and backs innit.
Weird isn't it Bus - just bit and bobs warming up I suppose. Interesting run SG - I used to do that in London, the good thing back in the day was each bus stop had an actual map in it to help. Good days effort there Jools.
Track last night - 5 x (600,400,300) off 200m jog between sets, about 60 secs between reps.
Something like (1.46,68,48), (1.46,67,49), (1.46,67,49), (1.44,67,47), (1.43,67,44). Sensibly didn't bother long commute today, as will do session tomorrow and popping down to Brockwell pk to do the HHH 10k race, the Frank Harmer, on Sunday morning.

We're awaiting your May race(s) with relish Ric, fingers crossed.
Just reached the peak of the PO10 backdating results obsession mountain, by keying in a printed out Hillingdon 2003 5miler set of results, as no one in the world has the electronic copy (it seems)
That'll go up.
We'll see if the dodgy Henley 5.2mile MT 2009 race where I apparently mustered a sub 30 time for 2nd place, despite racing standalone 5mile road races in high competition not much quicker at the time, gets through their checks though...the fact I only have the category winner names might be a struggle..we'll see.
Had to do all manner of a salvage operation after my over zealous chasing of the Sandhurst XC results from...late November. Still not on po10, despite the series result being declared a month ago and PO10 having the results link. Organiser is not best pleased with me, and reckons she's still "chasing up" a few queries
Just press the "final" button...
That aside we're done, save finding the Silverstone half marathon results from either 2003 or 2004. No sign...if anyone has any extra skills to find those, do let me know
You can be a contender Ric old son! And the run sounds promising.
Just a shame we can't repeat the thread triple voucher magic of a few years ago, as the Marlow 5 is the same day.
And no slight on yourself or the Henley HAODS 5.2miler Amazed it was still going by 2009. But must have quickly stopped quite soon after.
"Dodgy" just referring to the fact it was a MT job, there were kissing gates to get through, and fairly solo for a lot of it, yet still got in under 30? In 2009 when I did the Marlow 5 in 29.38!
Finally loaded my 1st ever win the high profile Winchcombe 2008 4.6miler!
Another of these bootleg sort of races where you're leaping some gate midway, as well as crossing a busy main road without marshals. Need that win on there though
Biggest memory of that one was winning some dodgy goblet. Unengraved.
That they blooming asked for back 9months later!
