Ugh yes it was sticky yesterday morning wasn't it, went in the local shop just before getting to work and the sweat started pouring - lovely this morning though. Did you go up that hill out of choice Bus? nutter..
Nice photo Bus - done many a race like that - the ones near us are very clayey and if it's wet you pick up half the field on your shoes!
Good to see big numbers are coming back. Would love those huge 70's style ones to come back properly.

Not just patience and thriftiness Reg - needed to use the bike! It was OK on the ride in this morning and the brake worked :-)

A quick compare and contrast. Here is the horrible ploughed field as I ran across it on Sunday, compared to what is was like after a few hundred runners had been over it.....
Ugh SG - Don't envy you one bit, it's an illness that I genuinely want to avoid in my time on this planet - got a real phobia about dizziness, bit pathetic really. It does tend to pass quite quickly though apparently, fingers crossed.
Joe - Yep Angus is really flying - he stupidly thought that I might beat him, obviously I laughed in his face
Rugby club at Luton last night. IK was doing 6 x 1600, so I was doing 6 x 1200.realised that I was getting too much rest, so for the remainder of the reps I did 1400's which worked out better (although thsat meant one trip up the 'ridge of doom'. Times were 4.45 down to 4.38, OK if not spectacular.
Good stuff there SW, noted that on the other thread.
Also good session MH - I was doing 1200's on Tuesday..but I finished too much in front of IK and would have had too long a recovery. So doing the 1400's I was only finished 15 seconds or so in front of him. He's one of those who eases away through the rep. I might be only 20m or so behind after one lap, but by the end he's stretched it!
Full house for me at the Eastern Vets final on Sunday - 1500,800 & 3000m in that order. At least I won't be in the relay this year. Strong team out at least as they are all back from the Euro masters in Venice in one piece.
PMJ - Good weekend then - mine started nicely with the Cherries winning the 'not a derby' derby 3-1. Lovely stuff.
MH -I'd need a scooter (probably electric) to keep up with IK. At least you know how fast you need to train if you fancy being a 2.15 marathoner or a sub 30 10K man I bought some A8's, but word of warning - they are very 'close to the ground' and don't offer much support. I like them on the track and grass, but find them too flat for the road (I'm about 11 stone and 6'2".
SW - Likewise with the Bostons - Always thought of them in with the Adios & Tempos as 'Racer/Trainers' for halfs and marathons rather than your long sunday run shoe. Although I do know folk who wear them for long runs. Yes should be at Sutton Pk, shame it's Sunday though.
