Oh Well

An excellent, flowing run round Abingdon this evening. I spent a lot of it in the company of Andrew and Tracey, but down Audlett Drive and back along the ring road I stretched myself and was surprised at the pace I could maintain. The Watch (as I have decided to call it - it does so much that the capital is justified) failed to record anything, though, possibly because of the damp conditions. it felt as if i could have carried on running for ever - it was efficient and economical and it felt great.

I was also pleased that Andrew had a solution to the problem of my Barney Run time: age-grading. I've put my performance into a WMA calculator and it has knocked 4½ minutes off my time. That's a very satisfactory improvement in 36 years.
