in future use the spare key, and hold it near the phone, works apparently

provided it is remote central locking

In Wiltshire for the weekend - two rides on the Witshire cycleway with the OH. Not that exciting but fortunately dry! Extra day off so back to work tomorrow!

Go on................. how fast? (my 10K 'PB' = 43:56)

But...... my 7miles were uphill for first 3, & incorporated woodland paths/open moorland :wink:

This pic was taken at about 2 & 1/2 miles into the race (& we started at the same elevation as the houses behind the trees (I'm '42')


Image


And the snowy pic is the Fell-Race on Ilkley Moor in February.
That was a slow race, didn't know the course (5miles/1260 feet of climbing!)
119th/215 @ 1.00:16

I'm 5th-in-line (discounting the leg disappearing 'stage-left')

Monday was an odd one as I was pacing for a friend who hadn't run a 10k before and wanted to beat 55mins. I dragged him round in less than 52 so he was a happy chappy.

My PB for a 10k though is 47.09... Want to get it below 45mins this year, also want to get my 1/2 marathon time below 1hr45 (Its currently 1hr49).

I don't do much fell or 'trail' running. Should do really... great for leg strength.
