  3. RUN
    good black ICE. 6.47 mi 01:17 11:53 pace

    ran with Fred and Tina slip/sliding called for Lucy but we advised her not to come to dangerous so we did a steady easy recovery run, after yesterdays effort.

  4. RUN
    great March Hair Raiser 6.29 mi 01:02 09:54 pace

    Mission Accomplished hoped for sub 10s done. 9:54 achieved, hoped for 1st O/70 done. great race, good organisation, great marshalling, tough route muddy and windy could have been worse as the last ... read more

  5. RUN
    great 'Parkrun' 69 3.12 mi 00:28 09:07 pace

    my 'Parkrun' number 69 good run, my 4th 28 minute run in succession getting a bit constant.

  6. RUN
    good Aldersley 6.28 mi 01:12 11:24 pace

    nice and easy trot out to Aldersley on the road then return via the trail and Whightwick bank. the trail is still very muddy, I expect the March Hair Raiser on Sunday will be the same.

  7. swim
    great Central Baths 5400 m 02:09 38:26 pace

    great swim-constant Front crawl throughout-the best distance pool swim yet and plenty more I could have achieved but again the time factor- mission Accomplished- next step a 3 hour swim.

  9. RUN
    good local, Tettenhall and Codsall. 10.42 mi 02:02 11:45 pace

    very easy run, for us but very hard for Lucy, another longer run and she gets stronger every week, Fred, Tina and myself are so proud of her achievement. Autumn half marathon for her is looking good.

  10. RUN
    Canal & road. 10.04 mi 01:48 10:46 pace

    Sunday Club, good running with Fred, Tina, Andy, Jane, Kathy, Kellie and Parveen.
    shorter run to day because of time restrains, i.e. going out for my wives 72 birthday.

      yes Paul he comes most Sundays now, he enjoys the long slow, and of course he is happy to run sometimes with the fast or slower runner to inspire and encourage, we think we are trying to give a little bit back to the sport we have enjoyed for so long.
