A very wet one this last weekend. I went to Leazes as Geth was parkrunning for once (as part of his long run) and had settled on Leazes for a bit of pace work as Town Moor was still off (for a festival that ended up getting cancelled… but let’s not go there).
I wasn’t expecting much pace in the rain, especially as I’d had to powerwalk most of the three and a half miles there after getting to the metro and realising I’d forgotten my bank card. It turned out to be a good warmup though and I was able to bomb it round for a good course PB, finishing in 30:32. Still hunting that post-pandemic sub-30! Didn’t have speed shoes on though so maybe next time.
Lots of TMBR folks also got course PBs so maybe the rain was doing a good job.
Further afield next time, and hopefully even faster…
