The current lockdown means no group runs for the time being. We’re still going out for out once-a-day exercise though, modifying routes and times as necessary:
21 Mar: Hodson’s out on a lovely sunny Saturday morning 1 on short and one doing summer long variation. Times 30.31 and 40.4 respectively.
24 Mar: [HC] Solo run starting and ending at home, earlier on Tuesday evening. Not many people around. 29m23s for Short, though only 4.93km against usual 5.06km.
26 Mar: [DD] The usual long loop but starting and ending at home – 29:34 time.
28 Mar: [VH] Early morning, short starting and finishing at Reddings and including Woodlands Rise -31.33
29 Mar: [DHx2] Alternative long winter run from our front door via town and Digswell road. 7.5km in 35.1
31 Mar: [DD] Clock change and a lovely sunny afternoon/evening, so back to the summer long green run – 34:32
31 Mar: [VH] No extra loops tonight. Finding it a lot harder without the incentive of a stop at Campus West post run – 29.6
31 Mar: [HC] A bit of extra distance to get the short above 5km (actually 5.12km). Had to do a final sprint to deliver a time of 30m00s precisely.
Psychologically difficult to get close to Campus West with the long Guessens Road / Handside Lane loop in prospect rather than a half of cider.
4th Apr: [VH & DH] Who needs parkrun, early morning summer short and long routes 29.1 at 5km and 38.5 for long
7th Apr: [DD] – Another early long green run, and warm enough for shorts… 34:05 – so a bit faster than last week.
8 Apr: [HC] Tried out a new route involving the long drag up Valley Road. Still managing to keep below 6mins/km.
9 Apr: [DHx2] Uplands long and hilly 34.75 slightly quicker than previous week
12 Apr: [VH] Regular short with one extra loop 31.3 Quite pleased with that post Easter egg!
14 Apr: [DD] Just the short course run this afternoon – probably overdid it over the long weekend! 22:58, starting/finishing at the bottom of the road.
15 Apr: [HC] Joint outing with Jill. She briskly walked the core route while I ran a similar route, but with extra loops in the style of the Long course. I beat her by 4 minutes and only met once, so a tweak to my route is needed.
16 Apr: [DD] Back to the long, green run and another small improvement – 33:50.
18 Apr: [DH & VH] Summer green run long with extra loop around north lake 8km in 39.8 and short 5km in 29.1
21 Apr: [DD] Something a bit different tonight – visiting all the local postboxes. Surprisingly similar to the usual Tuesday loop. 15 postboxes, 8.35k, 41:43.
23 Apr: [VH] Summer Green Short 29.0. Also did Postbox challenge on Monday and loved it, shall be trying it again next week.
