Hare and Hounds - Getting Slower

If the idea of ruining a set distance under race conditions at monthly or so intervals is meant to motivate and improve performance then it ain't working. Hare and Hounds finish times 2010:
January: 33:12
February 33:52
May 34:05
July 34:16

Today was windy - very windy. Luckily it was coming from the south-west and so behind us on the way back. But that's no excuse. And anyway it doesn't matter because I'm not even pretending to be race fit. And I went to Rockets for the first time for ages on Tuesday. And last Sunday's run was quite tough. And nobody really cares that much.

Andy and Martin were both there. Martin had raced last night so was taking it easy. Andy finished ahead of me and was probably running in flip-flops. Maybe I should give them a try...

Symondshyde Great Wood with Simon

OK so I wasn't aware of Symondshyde Great Wood before today's run. But I am and now and no doubt will be back.

Simon led the way at he usual brisk pace. I thought we were running quicker than we actually were, however, the satellites rarely lie.

Round Redbourn

Simon ran 20 miles this morning. I managed just over 10. And I bet Simon's average speed was a fair bit higher than mine.

It was lunchtime by the time I got out. However, with a good breeze blowing it didn't feel too oppressive. The route took me down to Rebourn where I found a couple of new paths and then back up the hill to Hatching Green on yet another new path.

Happy (but lonely) days!
