New PB for me today at Letchworth by almost 150 seconds. Rather less impressive given that this is only the third time I've completed a course, with 1x tail walk, and 1x really wet under my belt previously.

If you're really wet under your belt, you might want to make use of the toilet facilities beforehand :D

Wormwood Scrubs for Andi, Kev and myself yesterday. Tougher than I was expecting so not a fast time, but an enjoyable course and a good brekkie after!

Erm, no idea what that was meant to say prior to autocorrect getting at it!
It made sense originally I promise.

Bexley today with Andi - lovely park but ridiculously hot, even at 9am, so I didn't turn in a good time. Only 12 left in London (although another is being added soon I believe)

My time today irrelevant as the start line too congested as event on in Park so I went further back and just jogged along with Iain he really suffers in heat i have to say its a lovely parkrun with great potential for a pb I will have to go back one day and Re try. Scenery fantastic would put this as number 2 after tilgate another one of the list.

Fulham Palace for me today - flat but quite twisty, and I went off way too fast and blew up about halfway. Way better than last week but not the sub 30 I was hoping to have achieved again by now

That was officially my 50th run so I got a nice round of applause :D

Somehow today on a gently undulating course I managed to set a slower time than my previous PB. I blame the existence of tarmac.

I got back in the 20min range despite being undulating. Really wanted 51s as bingo number but time keeper stopped early. Despite that wonderful parkrun.

Oak Hill for me - no major hill except to get there, just long very gentle slopes. It was a bit if a trek from Southgate, using national rail would be closer but nowhere to get a pre-run coffee.
