No parkrun at Palace Saturday so think I'll give the Royal Bethlem one a go instead. Then run home via South Norwood country park and Crystal Palace to get a few extra miles in.

[QUOTE=tasty_snacks;14812569]I can't make it this weekend I'm afraid - full diary on Saturday. But I'm up for a return to where it all began. Next week?

Did a 16:40 5km at Battersea Park on Monday night and have a 7 miler race in Sevenoaks on Sunday, so no parkrun for me this week.

Royal Bethlem is a good one - on grassy trails Che but quite firm at the moment so you should like it.’

Thinking of doing Battersea on Monday what’s it like as a course?

I said a couple of pages ago, that I picked up some Nike Epic Reacts for well below half price last week.

Usually in the morning, when running with the dog in the morning, I tend to go round pretty slow at about 5.10 per km. Running in them I've been averaging 4:50. Wore my Asics this morning and really struggled in them. Not sure if this is just pure coincidence or not but keen to see if I can get my Park Run times down in the Nikes.

That's outstanding, Tom. Congrats on your PB. At north of 40, you are hope to the rest of us!

There was an interesting piece in RW a few months ago which plotted times against shoe. The data set was large and used ordinary runners. Some shoes were quite clearly faster than others.

I've set myself a 5k/10k target which I'm about 45 seconds away from at the moment. Once I hit it I'll do some more research to see whether the 'fast shoe' claims stack up. Be interested if anyone else has any links etc to share.

EDIT - quick Google reveals this. I think the underlying Strava data was the same as reported in RW;

That study was trying to see whether Nike was right about the 4% improvement from their new Vaporfly shoe. Study said that it was about right.

Different shoes will have an impact on your running though as they all feature slightly different tech inside them.

Not too far away from it though, and certainly a lot faster than I am at the moment. I still haven't done a sub 18 5km since Jan 1st's double parkrun

Battersea Park is the place to re discover your fast times.

I know from what you have being doing with the Kent sessions on a Tuesday night (I think you train in the same group as Buzz), you are defiently not far off a 17 minute 5km

Yeah seen Buzz on the track a few times recently, plus I remember seeing him at the Thursday night Battersea Park sessions a lot in the build up to the 2018 London marathon. He is a lot faster than me currently. He is usually in the slightly faster training group than me at present.

Saying that did 17.12 at the Bethlem parkrun today, and although the Garmin has it 150m short was happy with the time. Good also to see Tasty Snacks there too today

Some excellent times on here. Congratulations

Sadly I am so out of condition and fat my target is modest.

I am currently 119 kilos - 40 over where I should be, and managed to run a measly 37 minutes.

target is 99 kilos and half-marathon in under 2hr 20 by spring next year.
