New PB

New PB

For tonight's beginner run we had 3 beginners. Though beginners might be too strong a word. They are certainly new to canicross, and they had told us that they were runners. About 3/4 of the way round we discover that means that they have all competed in at least one Ironman competition.

So between not having any actual novice runners, and my borrowing a friend's dog while the friend ran ahead of us I managed to complete our regular run in 33m 34s.

Oh. And I've been trialling contact lenses for about a week and wore those tonight for the first time running in the dark (and the rain). It was great. I could see the ground, and I didn't have to carry my head torch in my hand at all.

Well, well - Stanmer Park, I know it well! I used to live on the university campus about 30 years ago!! PB, very good time - fantastic. Glad your contact lenses worked well too, all in all a good run :)

Small world! It's changed a lot since then - no dairy farm in the village, and Stanmer House itself is now a posh looking restaurant!

I was so pleased with that run, even though my calf did start niggling at me. 😊
