    I think there must have been another time keeping balls up today, my email says 43 minutes, but I think I was driving home by then!! (Definitely something wrong, because according to the website, the girl I overtook on the final stretch was over 4 minutes behind me).

    Anyway, that doesn't bother me, but by crikey that wind was something this morning! 40mph straight in your face all the way along the sea wall. And the course is properly wet now, after yesterday's rain, and as we're 75% on grass (mud now) it reminds me of the school cross-countries that I hated all those years ago!

    @JCMaloney think I need one of your trainers motivational pictures... my excuse for not running today was the blowing gale and fighting off a cold.

    Aside from these elite athletes that have appeared on this thread :shifty:......... back in OFB (Old Fat Bloke) land...... :D:D

    237th out of 457 ..... 28m 58s.... flip me it was windy!!
    We do a long old straight (x2) then turn right which on Saturday was face on into the wind. Those of us with "broader shoulders" that are not "aerodynamic" struggled a bit! Still it was sub 29 ... (y)(y)

    One participant was celebrating her 100th Parkrun..there was cake...:hungry::hungry:

    Mrs M forgot her gloves and was on barcode scanning so I lent her mine coz I`m a hero... :love::D

    On holibobs next week so it either radio silence or Parkrun tourism at Seaton & Windsor. :)

    I tracked a 'run' the other day, first one i've put into Strava in a long time.

    ...I decided I'd try a REAL power-walk. You know, that one where you look like you are trying to get to the loo before it reaches your socks.

    I did 5k in 40 mins, so not very quick, but it was damn hard work. Legs were locked stiff for the next 48hours.

    I eventually opted for a long walk to and from the office to pick up some bits. A very gentle stretch out was the ticket to meaningful release.

    I’ve been struck down with a second bout of exasabation of my asthma :arghh: missed 2 short runs last week because of it, manned up and did 16 miles on Sunday which didn’t seem to overly make it worse and I felt completely fine and now I should do 8 miles tonight but chest has got progressively worse over the day :cautious: to run or not to run :scratchhead::nailbiting:

    :unsure: Ok
    I’ve finally had a reply from my running coach who’s told me to swim so that I don’t lose fitness, so might try a swim before work tomorrow (y) with a float as I’m not that good at swimming :LOL:
