    Same here @ Highbury Fields. Love counting heads during the bottlenecks. Click click click.

    Beer had to wait till last 30k of WC. I drank vodka and read the latest Olga Tokarczuk novel in translation for a while first. Seems good.

    Ha! My hammertoe is a blood-blistered horror show.

    Great time. Are they up anywhere yet? I think I did 36:45 gun time.

    I can only offer an extra 14k bookending the race. The run home was a bit ouchy.

    Middlesex 10k Championships at Victoria Park this morning. Not got results yet. Felt a bit under the weather, and mood not the best, but the weather was good and so was the atmosphere.

    Went faster than my inaugural 10k at the start of the month. Chip time in that was 37:10, and I was definitely under 37 today.

    As far as GPS goes (I had to run a little extra to make up the distance last time, whereas today’s race was long) I’ve gone from 37:37 to 36:33.

    I’m not going to lie. It fucking hurt today. Kms 4 to 8 were in the zone, the zone being purgatory. But I suppose raw fitness carried me through.

    BEER! SOFA! WORLD ROAD CHAMPS! BEER!

    Tynan decided to eschew the senior parkrun in favour of the 2k junior parkrun this weekend. Ran a blinder for a new PB of 7:33. We hung around for a bit watching the carnage in the funnel as hordes of littler kids who’d ambled over the line then sprinted and jostled for position in the 10 yards between the timekeeper and the finishing token volunteer.

    Be they 8 or 80, it’s always humbling when you see these gifted people in full flight.

    Everyone’s a winner though, etc.

    You’ll do it. I felt like a total paedo this morning. Heavy breathing middle-aged man off the front chasing three teenage boys, slowly overcoming the weakest.

    17:33 at parkrun this morning which means…80.82% age grading. Goal #2 achieved. And I had a 50p-off coupon for Co-Op Cava so I’m about to start on the low-budget celebrations. What a beautiful morning for running. Not many of these left…

    Thanks. I don't think it puts him anywhere near genetic-outlier category, but I know he'll be leaving me in the dust soon if he continues. I'm happy that he's happy running. That's a decent baseline.
