This week’s running consisted of leading the second week of the Seaford Striders Couch to 5k group on Wednesday, where we took advantage of the lighter evening to run down to the golf course, and along, to run on grass. Impressively, nearly everyone who came to the first session returned, There were twenty-five of us in all.
On Saturday I went to Eastbourne parkrun, where, by dint of sticking with the pacers, I managed a PB for the course, beating my previous best time by over a minute. It was the first event of the revamped Seaford Striders Grand Prix I’d taken part in, so should be good for some points.
Finally, today I ran a seven mile course in brilliant sunshine around Seaford. My knee hurts, but seems to stop hurting after the first mile or so.
Total mileage this week: 13:55
Six weeks till the Seaford half marathon
In other news, it emerged this week that the Brighton half marathon was short by 146 metres, and has been for the past three years. I hope this will not lead to those who sponsored me demanding their money back.
