going against the wind 3 times really takes it out of you had a lovely way to go round the turning point though grab streetlight and swing. even led for a while now for Eastbourne marathon next Saturday.

GU posts his third time of 32:35. Is that the most anyone has of the same time? Can't be bothered to look.
I have three times of 29:07, two of which were in successive runs.
After today's run I now have three times of 27:49 as well.

Portsmouth Lakeside is quite sheltered from the prevailing south-westerlies. It rained quite a bit though.

We're number 1! We're number 1! (Well, equal anyway.) :D That actually looks way too bumpy a profile for Southsea.

I second GU's 'great stuff'.

Beat Kev for the first time today - fun race at Black Park, although I started too far back or I'd have got a faster time. 7 seconds faster than last week, but twenty on my watch :)

Better late than never results at penrose we’re a real mess this week but finally my time is on there.
A problem with Southsea's results this week. The Facebook page says there's a problem with the software that gets the times from the stopwatches. No results yet.

This week's update is done. Unless Southsea's results for yesterday appear on the website DrainBrain won't be credited with running it, as the spreadsheet has to mimic the official website's results. It becomes very hard to maintain and audit the spreadsheet if I credit people with runs they've done but which don't officially appear. Sorry folks.

As it stands, GU gets the best streak back, but DrainBrain will retake it with +16 if Southsea get their stopwatch download working.

Meanwhile, GU is one run off 200, and Geoff is three away. GU is also one run away from 100 unique courses run. Finally, a PB for crypto as he creeps up on Rik.

Southsea results have now been posted, so everything should be OK.

Also, I've noticed that my number of venues should be 44, as on http://www.parkrun.org.uk/results/mostevents/
