Weekend Running

From Tim: 10 of us in perfect running conditions set off in our two groups. We had been asked to do part of the Yeovil Half route out to Monty and up Balls Hill. We started by running to Palmers roundabout and joined the half route along Bluebell to make the distance up to at least 10k. The two groups stayed in touch by the quicker group doing slightly further by looping around housing estates. Well done Debbie Rennard for achieving 12 miles like your coach demanded.

Thanks all for a nice social run.

From Lesley: Lovely morning for our Sunday 10 miler a few BIG puddles to splash through but not as bad as expected considering all the rain! Well done all, great running today especially those adding extra miles making their runs 16-17miles A larger group of 17 of us, 18 including our supporting cyclist Robert! Well deserved Kinder Bueno Brownies with coffee after.

From Richard: The SLR marathon training group had a run with a bit of a difference this morning, I think my role as route planner may be in jeopardy! 17 miles with a nice mix of floods and hills. Great running by everyone and we did have a laugh Smaller group than recent weeks……… maybe they knew something we didn’t. Thanks to Sarah Farrant and Dominic who we met on route and to be fair they did warn us it was deeper further down the road, what they forgot to mention was it lasted for about 1/4 mile.

Langstone Harbour Half Marathon

From Margarita: February's Half Marathon challenge was the Langstone Harbour Half Marathon. Starting at the ferry point at Hayling Island, to Langstone then pack to Eastney ferry point in Portsmouth. The start brief was this is a challenging race, flat but with different terrain around each corner which it was. The terrain was shingle, grass, sand, tarmac, pebbles, mud, seaweed and water. We started on the beach and a mile of pebbles, then it was the Billy Trail Way which was a compact path with lots of puddles, some of them very large. The first 5 miles took you to the Hayling Island Bridge. After this it was the estuary wall and the footpath back to Portsmouth. At mile 12 you tackled muddy beach, which is exactly what it says on the tin. Really enjoyed this race and a cracking medal. For the mad amongst them there is a Double tomorrow doing the Portsmouth Costal Half, just the one for me this year.

Park Runs

From Ali: Frogmary green park run this morning with runners and volunteers today

From Lesley: Gangers Farm parkrun this morning, flat, 2.5 laps around a sports field which sounds boring but is actually a reasonable route. A bit slippy in places. Nice to see Martin & Lin Lascelles on their tour of Hampshire parkruns.

From Adam: Another Weymouth buggy Park run, this time with two Bonner children, then beach visit watching Jo and Linda swim followed of course by breakfast.
