Talking of phones (and Tesco) my new private phone (since retirement) is from that supermarket. I know you like a bargain Gul so I'm paying a tenner a month for basic smartphone which seems fair.
Enjoyed the rest yesterday and looking forward to a 10k blast this evening. Its a flatish course with an offroad section- will be aiming around 37 mins.
Lots to catch up on here!
G-Dawg - Good 20 bagged and a decent session. I like the sound of that one, may have to give it a try.
DT - Sub 82 seems ambitious but the way things are going it could be a possibility. Is it Kenilworth half you are doing this weekend? Hope your son enjoyed the football! That's a rapid 20!
Birch - How did your son get on? Theres a great standard at the Podium 5ks and some scorching times set
Congrats on the rapid parkruns OO & Badbark.
Got soaked on my 16 miler Sunday morning and for the first time in months was cold on a run! Did record my lowest ever HR for a run though (138) similar on yesterdays 9 at 7.53mm. I do take this with a pinch of salt though as its wrist based.
I was trying to use my chest strap for sessions & tempos to get a more accurate reading, however I was getting some pretty bad chafing from it in the heat so had to abandon it. I will try it again when its cooler but I need to see if a newer one is more comfortable.

Retired a pair of shoes yesterday. They had holes in the uppers and near the back of the sole, the rubber over the toes was coming off and the outer edge of the soles were very worn (supination?)! They passed 1,000 miles during their last outing and at £20, that makes 2p a mile, so can't grumble Tried out one of the even cheaper pairs from Lidl this morning.
OO – Awesome 10k time!
I ran the EAMS Carrickfergus Castle marathon today as my final long run
before Berlin. I wanted to dip my feet into the hurt pool without getting
submerged. So I ran a controlled MP + 30 seconds throughout with a few at MP
near the end. I know it’s more than anyone would advise but I think I know my
I finished in 2:57:29 and took the win but with a very small field. My
average HR was only 139 which is my lowest ever for a sub 3. That’s my 70th
Marathon (or ultra) completed.
So it’s now taper time with no more runs further than HM distance
planned. I’m feeling great and confident for Berlin. Excited too!
