The week began with our annual Pyjama Run at The Globe! Some fantastic PJs on show. Big well done to Ian who won best PJs! And a shout out to Will who just looked awesome...they were something special!
JK led the Fartlek Fun on Wednesday; Captain Dan put the Improvers through some drills on Thursday; and Katharine led another sunny Friday social run!
parkrun day arrived and we had LFRs at Leamington, Arrow Valley, Linford Wood, Kingsbury Water, Whistler, Bakewell, Dunstable Downs and Rushmere.
At home in Rushmere, Coach Matt was showing his stuff coming in 5th on his 50th parkrun as was Catherine! And we had PBs from Michael and Rod. Great running!
It was a quiet weekend of events, although our marathon girl, Emma, was running the Enigma Rocky 2 Marathon with her sister at Caldecotte on Saturday and the machine we call, Katy GL, was running the same marathon on the Sunday! Excellent running, ladies! The chaps were at it too...Nolan took on the Regents Park 10K on just 3 hours sleep...still got himself a sub-50!
Just because LFRs were not at events, doesn't mean we were not running! We had lots of people out on training runs and training rides putting in some big efforts for their upcoming events. And some just out running for the joy.
As it has been a very quiet week and there has not been much for me to say, I shall leave you with a running related poem from Alistair Jones on Twitter (@RunningMrJones)...
Are you often Full of doubt?
Do you struggle
To get out?
Please don’t worry
That it’s just you
Feel it too
Time is tight and
Life is tough
At times we all
Have had enough
But if you can run
Peace you’ll find
To warm your heart
And ease your mind!
