TR - SG did say he was feeling better last week, had a messenger messages, so hopefully he'll be back on soon MH - Presume your race was back in Cornwall? what one was it? Good effort anyway in that weather. Saw a couple of photos of SW on twitter, looked like he had good time and a PB, which was always going to happen as he was running well.
So, although slightly disappointed to miss out on finally meeting the famous and elusive Mr Bus, we still went over to Wendover to do the parkrun as the kid wanted to do it again. So I ran with him on a pretty hilly but decent 1 lap course and he was happy with a 25.57 and a PB. He's 9, so he's just started taking chunks out of his time after going over to Bedford in the summer and getting a bit of low level coaching.
Then over to as very windy Wrest Park for a session of 8 x 800, managed to average about 2.32's. Yesterday I got back on my 'Cublington loop' a 17.5 mile hilly loop out in the countryside. Did it in about 1.50 odd and it generally felt better than expected..until about 15 miles when you have about 3/4 of a mile downhill. By the time I've done that the quads and hip flexors are shot and I'm 8mm maximum. Decent weekend though.
Not elusive Bus? - well I suppose you were away for the Aylesbury 5k - so I wouldn't say 100% you are avoiding me Didn't do too badly rain wise yesterday on my long commute day.
Was going to Luton tonight, but my regular lift has hurt her ankle and not coming over...and with the weather forecast as it is I decided to run before work instead. Did 15 x 60 secs (on,off,on,off) in a similar vein to the 30 x 35 secs. As expected, bit of sun and the fair weather cyclists were out in force, but weren't too bad.
huge congrats SW, a 2:48 and a 5 min PB at your level should certainly be celebrated even if we all know that you'll have some residual disappointment on not hitting the sub 2:45 it really sounds like you dug out an excellent run with all that other stuff going on. Brilliant!
I had a lovely day out with the Dashers at the (lumpy) Windsor HM on Sunday. Managed to run a course best round there, take 2nd V45, help the winning team and finish just outside of an actual PB so I'm happy again after my crap run at Mhd. One more decent sized week and then the taper ahead of the opportunity to meet TR at Abo in a 2 1/2 weeks time. Great mileage man, really great!!
Bloody hell SW - Just the Telford 10K before xmas? You need to race more pal - I've seen your PO10 profile..it needs beefing up
Well done on the half Wool - we all know V45 is the hardest Vet category...Good running Bus and TR.
No national relays for us, so attempting sub 16 at Great Denham PR tomorrow morning, then the 17.5 hilly LSR.
Scott - Nice one mate, good to see you back in the swing of things!
Pete - Like the others have said, surely it can get fixed - never understand how things can ping when you are warm after running for 7k? bizarre and bloody annoying.
