Parkrun @ Beckenham tomorrow - hoping I can get near my time from a couple of weeks ago to confirm improvements.

The Race Organiser sent me a 20% off code for their runs if booked by Sunday. Signed up for a 10k in Victoria Park in June for under £13.

Feel free to use it - EGGSTRA20

I use Injinji Toe socks. Like gloves for feet. Only problem is if you dont cut your big toe nail regularly... But they have never given me a blister.

I also am pro getting my running shoes a size bigger... But I guess that depends on your own preference.

I'm with whoever it was that suggested X-Socks, they are my favourite brand though you do tend to pay over a tenner for a pair so more than Kalenji I'd say. Mind you, shop around (wiggle, amazon, sweatshop etc) and you may be able to find them on sale cheaper.

As for the Caterham half, I've done it twice. First time I actually won it and got a decent wedge of prize money. Second time around I was 4 1/2 minutes faster but was 2nd or 3rd (can't remember now). Anyway, course is a 2 lapper. Quite hilly, and the last hill is at the end of each lap so you'll notice it. Roads aren't closed so there are cars, but it's quite quiet on the whole and well marshalled so not a problem. Not sure what else to say but if you can think of anything specific then feel free to ask and I'll try and remember!

CP parkrun this weekend Woosie? Go on, you know you want to! Better than South Norwood eh Cant Spell

So i went for a 7k run around the Isle of Dogs at lunch today and just before leaving thought it best to empty the bladder as the run was likely to take a good 45 mins. About 2 mins into the run, my bladder suddenly felt full again. I decided i would just stop at the nearest pub/restaurant. When i finally got there i was absolutely aching for a piss, whipped the old boy out and low and behold the urge subsided and the most pathetic of dibbles ebbed put. Fair doís, off i run again. Within about 15 seconds, my bladder starts to feel full and the more i run the more it feels like Iím desperate for a piss. I tried to piss agin a few Km down the road with no joy.

Eventually i just decided to carry on running and suffer the sensation.


Eventually get back to work and again next to nothing comes out.


Iíve still hot the sensation now with next to no piss coming out.


Wtf?

Just had a look at those socks, that's some serious price for a pair of socks! I bought some Kalenji ones after work this evening. Working within walking distance of Decathlon in Croydon is handy. Also bought a pair of their shorts. Been wearing Nike ones but thought I'd give them a go.

Cheers for the info about the Caterham half marathon. I had heard there were a couple of hills which had I known beforehand maybe I wouldn't have signed up haha. In all seriouness that's alright as when I run there's a slope down the road that Whyteleafe FC is on, and just beyond Whyteleafe station is a hill. How steep would you say the hills are?

I'm going to join the gym as well to try to increase my strength as I'm just flesh and bone really.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and advice.

I'll probably do a parkrun tour eventually, but for now Riddlesdown is fine!

I actually have these but I found after doing parkrun last week I wanted something to give my toes a bit more protection.

Good Luck and take care to any Palace running the Marathon.

Weather looks perfect.

Leaving Canary Wharf and heading for the Embankment was always the worse part for me.

The Lucozade drinks certainly gave me a Ďkick and liftí.

Came 37th in Riddlesdown parkrun today, 30 places higher than last week but more importantly I smashed my time.

22:30 which is not far off two minutes quicker than last week, on a far more blustery day.

Absolutely delighted with that effort and my fastest ever 5k time by about 15 seconds

Great work Woosie.

I’ve been terrible in using running socks. Think I may need to invest in a couple of pairs considering the amount I do!

Nice work Matt. Especially because, as you point out, it was bloody windy out there, and Riddlesdown is exposed. Hopefully that gives you the motivation to kick on and break through the next barrier - 22 mins

I managed to shave a full second from my last time at Beckenham two weeks ago, so not quite in your 2 minutes quicker league! I got lucky today in that the top end of the field was nowhere near as quick as it usually is, so whereas two weeks ago I was just inside the top 20, today I came home as 4th finisher with a near identical time. I nearly blew it though as I forgot my barcode - cue a mad dash home to collect it and back to the park to just about catch the volunteer scanners as they were packing up. Phew.

Good luck to all those running London tomorrow. Looks like near perfect running weather - cloudy, 12-14 degrees.

Damn you Woosie - 2nd park run for me today too and was chasing your last week's time. Went from 28:28 to 25:45 - 160th to 65th - and was feeling right pleased with myself - massive headwind in face for half of it too - and then I read the above.

Bloody fantastic time - well done

Damn straight you should feel deflated. Nearly 3 minutes off your time is shit.

Good job

Celebratory beers for both of you tonight I think.

Great to see 2 new runners in you and Woosie

Yep.

I’ve found but by putting something on writing here has made things a lot easier for me.

This has included writing updates for no other reason than my own, but to document.

I’ve done 1,237km since Nov 2016 which is the equivalent of London to Madrid. Probably get a flight back.

Tom's looking good at the 35k mark - current predicted finish 2:48:24 with very steady splits.

How good is Kipchoge?! My word.

Just a heads up for those who don't quite understand the Parkrun age-group percentages like myself until yesterday. So if you are graded 70% + you are said to be good enough as regional level runner representative. 60% + is Local and 80% + is National. 90% or higher then you shouldn't be on here but training for The Olympics.

Think that's it but stand to be corrected.

Just saw the winner of my Parkrun yesterday was 80.17% - Blimey
