SG - We're pretty cack home AND away mate. But last night took the biccy.
Muddy - Good steady half, loads to come off. Joe - had a nice read of the race on the sub 3 thread. Is this the god send break we have from marathon chat until London training kicks in again?
Alehouse - Yes I did stumble on my age graded 'win' on Friday. Don't like to talk about it though
More quality "racing" Muddy. I don't really get how you can trot round for 4th rather than rinse yourself & go for the podium/win Cracking on here with an 11 day streak averaging 10M a day.
Dog assisted makes an absolutely monumental difference.
Check this link below, a 14.59 guy did 12.24 with his dog!
That might well be a faster dog, but look at the pace the guy already was, and think about a 2 1/2min reduction!
I can't find my other example, but I think someone related or known to this thread was denied a 1st by some moderate lady runner taking stacks off her usual time
Sandra Bowers... 15.48 with dog!!
Her Newbury record
You have to doubt those two sub 18s on that record as being assisted too.
Looking at some of her other times, i'd probably suggest her peak proper run times are in the 18s, so again that's a monumental difference, at that level.
Not surprising really, you're being hauled along by something quicker than you, it's like the ultimate drafting!
As the dog assisted has its own category, It could never count to po10/Rb, unless the person was a bit rogue about it. And it'd soon stick out like a massive sore thumb in any other race they did.
Tough weekend then Jools. And they say I do loads of races!
PeteM - I remember seeing that Sandra woman in the rankings and going straight to my Parkrun guru and asking wtf?? Good mileage and great 10mile in the conditions Muddy!!
