So with April nearly done it was time for a quick 5k blast this morning. 25:12!! Felt fucking amazing whilst running from 1k to 4K though the less said about the last 1k the better. Time to reflect on achievements so far and set up a programme to work towards the Duathlon in October. Seen some good stuff online and I need to stop pissing about and put some bric training and strength training into the schedule. Onwards.....

FFS!  Never going to get close to that!  Seriously though, well done, great time.  My back is still bad so haven't been out for ten days, so going to have to build back up when it's right again.

Hope that back clears up soon, itís a right pain when it happens. Are you doing any exercises or yoga to help it?

Finally after about two years plateaued Iím moving forward. Hard work but Iím sustaining pace reasonably well. I just did a fairly hilly 6K at 4.57 per K pace.

I think Lockdown has helped me focus on working harder.

Great stuff Paul, keep the good work up. That's a really good per Km pace.

Been going well lately, so I thought I'd have a go at my 10K PB by running the local parkrun course twice. Targeted tonight (after the football) because it was supposed to be still, although it turned out there was a bit of a breeze coming off the Clyde. Previous PB (harder course, but in a race two years ago) 36:39. Tonight 36:39.64  ::)

That's a great time charlatan. Do you run competitively as that is a very fast 10K?

Not really...I used to run for Halesowen when I was a kid. Got back into it in the last few years and I just do the odd parkrun or local hill race or 10k every few months. Did the Dudley parkrun (much harder course) in a gale last year when I was visiting my parents. Don't really enjoy racing much tbh.

But I have been doing a lot more miles than I used to when I was younger (perception of time changed since I was younger, so a 10 mile run doesn't seem to go on for ever any more). Ran over 100 miles in May which is the most I've ever done in a month. I know people who run that much a week. Wouldn't want to do that even if I could handle it.

In another near miss, my parkrun time is one second slower than my 5000m PB from 1992, so I'd like to beat that if I could!

I used to run around 100 miles a week when I was running Marathons and ultra Marathons. It takes some dedication and discipline. Now I'm reduced to the odd 15km run every week or so.
