Has anybody on here tried to time the end of their run with the outdoor clap for the NHS? I thought it would be amusing, but the other half said she'd dump me.

I remember you raced at Staines 2017 but not sure of many races since (maybe one or two max. But of course you might have done sessions in them. Or they might be yonks old?But it's clearly going to be a big number hence you asking 😄😄

Pete clearly cyclists need longer sections whereas runners will pop up with much shorter ones, often in places you can't cycle.Not sure that makes it "sad" Ric. And remember you're posting on a running forum for fookerys sake 😄.See how far your soliloquies on random minutae get you in day yo day life if in any doubt😙.Ps ahem yes..getting agitated at someone else's 5k time and congitating on the accuracy of random footballers times til midnight was a new personal pb of obsessional even for me💩Can i play the "it's passion" card 🚀.Pete well done for getting out and putting a shift in.Moraghan and aley always a treat when you chaps get back involved.I remember years ago some random saying they got excited and rushed to the thread when they saw Phil had posted😄😄I always presumed that was Phil's ringer account,but with the boys above i genuinely do rush in.Not to underplay anyone else's contribution obvs. More a rare treat.Half way through this advanced excel course..quite interesting.I've changed!!

Ric, none of us are getting any younger, and i think this virus shows us that we have to seize the opportunity to race and enjoy things when we can. As when they're taken from you, you realise the loss.Never knock those who try and make the most of their running. Especially when it's not their fault they're not able to as freely as they like right now.Bus, that's a new one! Looks a particularly random and nasty pierce job. Hope it is just the shock to the body and soon disappears. Can't be too bad hopefully.After a 68 and 3x65 mile weeks, it makes sense to cut down a little this week with the two day course.Today i went for a sharp 10x1min on 1min off in a 7.5miler.Will have to double check the paces but am sure they were generally mid 5.30 sort of figure. Maybe a couple quicker on a couple of slopes and a couple up inclines more Sub 6.43.5 so far and probs 14-15 sun.
I don't think you need to feel bad at all Bus. I've seen several appeals where the NHS have actually been pointing out the drop in visits to A&E and the associated health issues we could be storing up for ourselves longer term. Better a chat with your GP now than sucking up more time in the future was the message I've taken away.Few strides for me this morning ahead of my 5k TT attempt in the morning. Wore my old adidas tempo boosts that still look as pristine as Ric's shoes on the sole even with 500ish miles on the clock. They are dead though, so flat. Could be end of life, could be just comparison with other models of shoes I have. I wouldn't write off tech progress, even if it does cost a few quid more. BTW: my 1st pair of VF (I have 4) are still going with more than 500 miles on the clock.
