Evening everyone. Thread is again moving at PACE!
Strong segging, SG. 3:38 pace 😱.
Enjoyed the grammatical breakdown of Reg’s comment. I read it, clicked next page, and then saw all my hilarious thoughts played out in the next three comments.
Big weekend, Jools. Still think you could target a sub 3 with the right build up and on the day conditions.
Managed to churn out a few midweek 9-10 milers, and enjoyed getting the sun on my face.
Got out yesterday lunchtime for a longer buggy run: 1h55 easy 7:42 pace for 15.3M. Incredible weather. I’m not far off burnt.
And today a very leisurely 10k up on Cleeve Hill. A genuine running paradise 😀.
64M for the week and 231 for Feb. Third highest February. Reading back on my notes from 2019 - an absolute beast of a month! Several 20+M runs including 4:50am 22M run commutes to work, interval sessions, tempo, a cross country race, 10k (Chichester) and half (Wokingham) PBs, 85M weeks. Absolute machine!
That said, I still enjoy running now as much as then.
Vaccine tomorrow morning - woohoo!
When properly measured races return, it will be interesting to see how these self-certified PBs people are reporting hold up. It is clearly harder to run solo than in a pack but also GPS can be inaccurate so which will have a bigger effect? I completed 12.5 laps of the empty Marlow track in lane 1. My GPS watch is on my left arm and so takes the inner side of the track and nobody can accuse me of moving my arms wildly while running, but the GPS trace says I did 5,100 m.
