It's not very easy to search as such, but there's plenty in the fixtures isn't there?
I find the fixtures quite hit and miss in general though. A few times I've looked for a race I'm certain is po10, and it's not in there, so it must be down to the organiser when they add it.
Noticed the Watford track meets start tomorrow, wow we are cruising through the year!
Last time I went to one was 4 years ago, and it was on the warm up with Dachs and someone else we knew (that I forget) I first thought, hmmm my breathing feels a bit off here. 2 months later having that Wycombe half nightmare
4 years ago though...wonder if it's worth putting a 3k in. It just feels so alien though racing on the track. The fussy rules, the really late starts (9.45pm sometimes), being surrounded by these super chisselled youngsters in all the gear, and a sort of feel that I can only describe as being what fun runners must feel when they turn up at a club race!!

For PO10 it's a full time job just updatings SGs race history so no wonder they don't have time to look at fixtures.A rare early morning run for me today, I want to try and get into the habit of using the early mornings, especially as we approach summer.
Northumberland from Wednesday Ric. I'd rather be in the Lakes, and we're stuck in the no-mans land between the Cheviots and the sea, so not expecting much running wise. Might even take the chance to have a few days off. That said, I'll probably jump in the car and do a couple of runs in the Cheviots at some point.
Also ran out of time for a lunch run today, so an enforced W-off. Probably no bad thing, but will probably stop me hitting 50 for the week.
And yes, it was freezing this morning! Even with long gloves on, my fingers were numb by the time I'd ridden to the station...
Reg - it's those runners with the jumble sale type clothes that you need to be wary of, usually pretty handy. Bit sneaky.
SW - A good tip to try and find some 'proper' races is the calendar of a well established athletics club, they might have some other events added to their league races. Also have a look down this list too, some open races in there http://www.britishmilersclub.com/fixtures/bmcfixtures.aspx easy to enter and decent races.
SG - Yes, get a 3k in. Can only help with the mental side of road races, different kind of pressure.
Luton last night, bit of a hybrid session as I have a dreaded long leg of the national 12 stage on Saturday. It was 1200,1200,1000,1200,1000,1200 on the grass - the ridge of doom also in the 1200's. roughly 4.00 then down to 3.55 for the 1200's and a 3.18 and a 3.08 for the 1000's. didn't feel amazing, but not too bad.

Went out for a second run this evening, it was cold so my watch was covered and I picked up the pace a bit to get warmed up and ran to feel. Ended up running around tempo effort in the end. 10k in 38:30 after a first mile of 6:44 so about 6:08 pace once I got moving. Good news was that my HR was about 10 beats below HM effort. Picked up a CR for the stretch past the station butonly onceI had flagged the 3 people that had recorded their train ride as a run!

I did a recovery run this afternoon, 8:43 pace! That's what you get when you run to feel and don't check to see how slow you're going.
Now we're all getting so bloody old, is this going to be the new bragging rights?
How slow you can run?
