Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Accidentally got a new PB this week! Wanted to better my course PB back at Hove Prom for the 4th birthday/250th celebration for a mate, but still wanted to keep Lancing Beach Green as my overall PB. I missed the 14 second window for that, but in the best way possible - I took seven seconds off my 5k...

Weekly Highlights 22JUN

jamesthegill ran his 100th parkrun at Lancing Beach Green, to honour him Iain finished in 100th place at the same event :shock:
There's a certain synchronicity there, considering I only knew about parkrun through this forum!

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

I believe there's a new parkrun starting in Seaford (East Sussex) a week tomorrow - March 2nd.

There will be rail replacement buses running between Three Bridges & Brighton and Three Bridges & Lewes so plan ahead.

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

jamesthegill ran sub 28 mins for only the 2nd time in 77 attempts. I'll fully admit that I was dragged to this time by a friend who wanted to run with me for the last time before she moves to Manchester! Now that my regular running buddies have moved away, and having free rail travel in the south e...

Has this got something to do with silent letters?
Nope, it is (or was) a physical thing.

Christopher Lee is the obvious guess, I suppose.

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

A stinking hot one today - no PB but a time of 29:51 which two months ago I would've been overjoyed with! Next run is in two weeks - has anyone done Wormwood Scrubs before?

Re: Zone 1 Challenge Cup 2018- Friday 1st June.

Having rechecked my shift schedule I'm afraid I'm going to have to withdraw my tentative entry for this year's Z1 cup, as I'm starting a run of nights that evening.

It's a shame, I think I'd be able to give a good account of myself this year now that I can actually run properly!

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Another PB, only a course one this time, but I took four minutes off my previous time at Preston Park! Hopefully I can have a similar improvement at the Escheresque hilltop course at Bevendean next week.

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Knocked 90 seconds off my previous PB yesterday! The combination of post-marathon freedom and wanting to beat a Swindon fan really helped.
