8K.PB

Good run for me today, it was a 8K.PB, I run without my metromone app, music instead, I was listening to the Evergreen Top 1000 records of the last 50 years, that radio program is being broadcast all week, it helped me get a PB 8K of 56.57

Thanks roseabi, it's the second run within a week that I have ran a little faster without the metromone app.

I used a metronome app for a while, it was nice to get rid of it!I think that it had served its purpose 😊

An easy 5k for me today.

Enjoy your "easy" 5K today Sue, so no PB for you.

No, I get my 'pb of the week" on Mondays these days, when I run with a friend - on a disused railway track, so plenty of space between us.

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to RunaroundSue

There are plenty of disused railway lines not too far from where I live, however, I tend to cycle 🚴 on them rather than 🏃🏾 run

I have heard several Beatles songs already on the Evergreen Top 1000 🎶 and there will be many more to come, I enjoyed my run this morning. 😊 🏃🏾

It sounds like a really enjoyable run, I think I would've enjoyed it too 😃

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to Beatlesforever

It was nice to see Christmas lights still on in some gardens and at windows as the sun had just risen so the lights were still bright, however, when the run was over, the lights were off.

Beatlesforever
BeatlesforeverGraduate10 in reply to AlMorr

That sounds like a magical start to the run. I love Christmas lights 😍 we haven't put ours up yet, maybe this weekend 🎄

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to Beatlesforever

I intend to switch my Christmas 🤶 Lights and Christmas Tree 🎄 lights on at 4pm on Saturday 5th December.

Well done getting your 8k pb AlMorr and what a beautiful day we have today after 2/3 days of rain👏👏👏👏

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to Buddy34

It is a lovely day Buddy34, a change from the rain ☔ we have had recently, but there were a lot of puddles to avoid, I enjoyed my run, the good part of starting the run just at sunrise was that I passed several gardens which still had Christmas Lights on and a few had Christmas Tree 🎄 🎅 lights still on at their windows, when I was walking back after the run all those lights were off.

Yes Al!!Awesome my main man. What a fabulous achievement. A brilliant way to cap another year of you being out there 'doing bits' as I like to say. What an inspiration mate. That's a quality run.

👏👏👏👏👏🥇🥇🥇🥇🥇

Thank you GTFC, my run is also on Relive, its been a good running year for me, probably the highlight was my 10 miles run on the 22nd July 🏃🏾👍

Most of my midweek runs have been8 K's in around a hour, last weeks 8K was with my metromone app at 166 cadence/beats/steps a minute 62 minutes and 42 seconds, this morning without the app and with music 🎶 instead my time was 56.57.

Well done! Sounds like you enjoyed the music. I am curious though, metromone app?

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to 59er

The metronome app is a good help for a runner to keep a even pace, but it's a bit strange that my fastest runs have been when I don't have it with me like this morning, the 🎶 music was very good as well. 😊 🏃🏾

59er
59erGraduate10 in reply to AlMorr

I think I'd quite like to try this Al - where can I find it? Also which station is the Evergreen playlist on?

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to 59er

The radio station that is playing The Evergreen Top 1000 can be heard at NPO Radio 5.NL.

59er
59erGraduate10 in reply to AlMorr

Thank you!

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to 59er

PS 59er, No. 1000 on the Top 1000 was The Everly Brothers with Walk Right Back, at No. 1 was Roller Coaster by Dutch singer Danny VeraThe full 1000 songs are on the NPO Radio 5 Website.

I see someone's beaten me to it, I like the sound of that radio station. Brilliant stuff Al, looks like the Beatles are what you need for pacing your PB's!

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to grumpyoldgirl

Thank you GOG, I enjoyed my run this morning, I know all the numbers in Dutch from one to one thousand so I can listen to that Dutch Station with all that wonderful music.

That's impressive! I lived over there for a while, but I never really learnt much of the language. They all wanted to practise their English on me 😂

It was a reasonable cracking run Grannyhugs, I had a happy run this morning, especially seeing some Christmas 🤶 🎄 Lights on in some gardens before they were switched off.

I also listen to Spotify when I 🏃🏾 run

That’s a really good 8k PB Alan 👍

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to lexi6

Thanks lexi6, not heard from you for a while, I hope you are enjoying your parkruns, I still listen to RNZ Concert on a Monday evening, that's Tuesday morning where you are.

lexi6
lexi6Graduate10 in reply to AlMorr

I lost my mojo for a while Alan and have struggled with my running, but am running regularly again. I have done just 5 parkruns since they re-opened but hope to do more when we get a summer 👍Glad we still have our Concert programme too.

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to lexi6

Good news about your runs and Concert continuing, I don't think that parkruns will return any time soon in the UK or Ireland, it looks as if everyone will have to be vaccinated first and that might not be until Autumn 2021, I am in the age group that may be vaccinatated in March 2021 but I was reading in The Guardian that people under 50 won't get the Covid 19 jag until during the summer of next year.

lexi6
lexi6Graduate10 in reply to AlMorr

Wonderful that a vaccine is going to be available soon and I can only imagine the joy of everyone meeting up at parkruns again. You’ll all be getting PB’s there every week after your year of not parkruns. 👍

Congratulations on your 8K PB, that’s awesome! Sounds like an enjoyable run, just you and some good tunes, that’s how I like it best too. Happy running 🏃🏽‍♀️

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to Catho78

Yes indeed Catho78, it was a bit better listening to music than the tick tick of my metromone app.

AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to WillowandSola

That's OK W&S, that was two weeks ago, that time was 56.57, last Wednesday, 9th December it was even better when I ran another 8K in a time of 56.52, its high time I ran another 10K, I may do that next Wednesday.
