Nice running Gus and nelly!!

Fantastic weekend in the lakes - stumbled upon a trail/ fell race - 7 miles with a bit if everything and 600m climb. Actually enjoyed it though my descending us frankly sh1t! Some idiot turned up and ran a fell race in his road shoes (and still came 7th!!)

Well done guys and nelly, very solid runs :-)

And as I've said elsewhere, well done Don on your pb :-)

I've done very little running this month after a couple of weeks off and a stuttering start since. Hoping to get a double figured run in today before a boozy weekend away with the lads!!
Plan to start getting some consistency into my training from next week given I'm struggling for both speed and mojo at the moment.

Best of luck to shoddy this weekend at Jersey..

Well done Stoosh, even off little training your racing is better than your typing, or at least I hope "Well done guYs and nelly" was a typo ;-)

Haha, well spotted nelly... That should have said gus but would appear my phone likes to write guys instead ;-)

Nice one don - marathons can be wonderful experiences if folk will keep a lid on the pace in the first 5k/10k, like you did...:-)
