Good 5k Philip and that looks a nice series. Pity they don't invite all the TVXC clubs to join but presumably us, BFR and Sandhurst are deemed a bit far away?
Great racing from PeteM and Wool, more prizes for Pete - anything decent..vouchers? or are they one of the stingy lot? The next 800's will be better, there's a Serpies guy who is pretty good who I'm likely to race on Monday, then it's SAL Saturday week, so there will likely be fast 2.00m types running.
I noticed that James form Dachet was going well, went faster than me at Sutton Pk by over 10 secs - which looking at PO10 I think looks like his (or one of his) best races, along with the low 33.00 10k's? Be interesting to see what he can do.
Good stats PMJ - Shame that the standards are slipping like this, we'd all be running faster 30 years ago - Just the way it is. Some of the old 10k results I've seen from the early 80's are mental with the amount of runners sub 31.00.
Great racing Pete & Wool! Congrats on the prize Pete.
Sounding positive Bus! I'm racing the Two Castles (Warwick to Kenilworth) 10k on Sunday. Target is as close to 37mins as possible. Good luck with whatever you decide to race!
SG you do realise how a pop up tent works right? There is no technicality you just put open it and it pops up!
Matt - you're on the comeback trail to that 28:xx 5miler. I always forget how young you are, you just need to stop those 2month doss about trips to NZ, and try and get away from the ridiculously hilly SW!
Bus - any average race is 2-3 posts. This promises to be 5 or 6 x5mile legs.
By the time we have the drive there, parking shenanighans, tent sent up, tent use, eating, toileting issues, photos of the venue, and randomers and covering each leg in piquant detail, we'll do well to get out of this with less than 27 posts.
Pete - Nah I love the vouchers! I called Scott when I got the voucher and got it sorted over the phone, no need to go to the shop. Anything to help with trainer costs
Track last night 6 sets of (600,400,300) so quite a long one, the 600's were a pain after Weds night, but session went ok, mainly (1.48,68/69,49). Knackered now, but easy weekend before an 800/3000 double at southern masters on Monday night.
Pete - does Yateley still do category prizes across the 3 race series? I would have thought you would be very hard to beat in your cat and so could look forward to a trophy or some more vouchers.
I wonder how specialized running shops manage to survive in all honesty. They're great for the new runner who can go in an and be categorized as an over-pronator & thus prescribed their 1st pair of real running shoes - likely a 200 quid pair of Asics bricks - but after that who really uses them?
Mind blowing reps as usual from Simon. Perhaps that's why I marveled as you ran past just so fast at the Masters Relays. Hmm, maybe I should try some speedwork one day. Oh, I'm sure yours were good too SG, perhaps switching to mins relieves some of the stress from the session?
And I've never met TR although we both ran at the Worthing HM the same day and I kept waiting for you to come past when I was all but stationary in to the wind. Anyway, I'm not sure that I could root for anyone more to get back to sub 3. Have loved reading your comeback story, run strong.
SG - It can be a good idea to modify a session if the conditions aren't quite right - although I always try to ask myself whether I might actually be 'chickening out' of the session or it's the right thing to do - sometimes I persevere, sometimes I don't. Hill sessions are always good if its too windy. Failing that, just running and getting really knackered is good enough!
Wool - Thanks for the compliment. I did run well at the masters relays, like most of us I have had a few shockers at Sutton Pk. That's why I noted how well your colleague from Datchet did, it's a bugger of a course. Yes speedwork is always a good idea!
