Roundshaw downs park run.

My brother-in-law is the UK park run king:

He used to be quite good, but not any more. He was <9 stone, but not any more. These facts could be related. Richard keeps his wins record going by seeking out ever more obscure park runs, with ever lamer times required to win. Roundshaw downs is one such park run, just a mile from his parent's house. I did' t really have any excuse not to do it. Jogged over with Ray, at what felt like my race pace, but was only 8:20miling.

I have been avoiding park runs for ages as I don't want to know how unfit I am. Now I know. I was pleased to get sub 22, esp as it was an xc version of a park run - hilly and muddy. Beaten by a depressing amount of 5-year-old-looking boys though - onwards and upwards. Splits were 6:57, 7:17 and 7:17.


Ray was 2nd. We are going back tomorrow, and the person that beat him is not running so hopefully we can cajole Richard into running to see a good race. Before the race I told Ray I was going for a negative split for the 2 day/2 park run 10k. Now I am not so sure.

Trail running 25:00 [3] 2.5 mi (10:00 / mi)

Jog there / back. Considerably slower coming back without Ray.

Work, work, work is all that I have done this week, and the previous week. Get up, work; go to work, work; go home, work, go to bed. It has been driving me quite mad, but it is all coming together and a satisfying end is in sight. But still no time for running.

Secret Santa today. Claire gets ... A BUFF! Nice

Hmm. Binning wood mud is trying to suffocate my washing machine. Must remember to at least clap the worst of the mud off first next time.

Evening spent not running, but watching Lozza at the school carol concert. I shouldn't have let him near the hbt hymn book. It is WHITE Christmas Laurence. W H I T E! Not SHITE! Only one child had to leg it mid song for a vomit!
