OAC’s Howard Jeffrey reports:
“I read the Running Blog article in the Guardian, not impressed. It was like author has just discovered she is human. What has she been doing all her life, making notes?
Anyway what was not mentioned was also the cross-country mud. Thick black oozing stuff, slippery, smelly, slimey, clinging, delicious and I don’t even like it!.
It reminded me of school games lessons when the rugby was cancelled (shame! I was second row, AS IF!). Do they still do that? School sports I mean? I was the only OAC rep so counted as second-claim Valley Strider.
Also did the Roundhay parkrun yesterday as the Althorp Duathlon was postponed because the car park area was awash. Shame as the weather this weekend would have been perfect. Back to back runs at steady pacing to get the miles in. The Duathlon is now the day before the Haweswater Half so may be in for another busy weekend…”.
