Okay, so maybe my title should say early summer roll, etc. because at last the weather we have been waiting for has arrived and it feels like summer, but like the tabloid press, I am not averse to a bit of inaccuracy when it comes to creating an eyecatching headline. The roll referred to is the one that I seem to be on, (famous last words) after last week's demolition of my previous Parkrun PB, I surprised myself by knocking 11 seconds off my home 10k run, even though I stopped to take a photo en route. This comes nearly a year after starting C25k, when I had expected that the PBs would fall rather less frequently. It's a bit like waiting for buses at the moment.....but at least I am at the all coming at once point.
The Vindaloo reference is also twisted for my nefarious purposes, it having been the England World Cup squad's theme song from several years ago now. I was reading recently about the 2014 squad and noted that James Milner, 28, runs on average 12.5k per game, about 1.5k more than any of his fellow squad members. If he can do that in the 30+ degree curry hot heat and high humidity of Manaus tonight then I am sure there won't be many keeping up with him.
The moral of the tale is that if you keep trying and improve your technique, then surprising results sometimes follow. Come on England!!!!
I apologise to all you non football lovers.
Keep running, keep smiling.
