I popped out for a nice run over a hill this morning…
1m below sea level to over 200m above in a few short kilometres. Great view from the top and so worth the effort.
Early bird entries opened for the 2017 Reading half marathon and you'll never guess the early bird price for non-affiliated runners: £45!! Yes, FORTY FIVE POUNDS!!… for a half marathon!!
Today is a sad day for the parish of Stoke Gifford; it's citizens are going to become grumpy, unhealthy, less engaged and fatter thanks to their parish council's decision to force Little Stoke parkrun to pay for the use of Little Stoke park on Saturday mornings for their weekly free parkrun, effectively shutting down Little Stoke parkrun. Their parish councilors are also counting the number of days they're councilors .
It was with great delight that I watched the finals of the men's 800m at the World Indoor champs last night in which Boris Berian ran his 800m exactly like I did many a time in high school…
Yup, go out as hard as you can - it's a long sprint after all - and then hold on for dear life in the final stages of the race in the hope you've got the legs to keep you in the lead until the line.
I didn't think he'd do it as we so commonly see with people going out way too quick, but he did, and with a split of 49.73s for the first 400m and 56.1s for the second!
