Another busy old week gone by. There has been a lot going on this week with the Run leaders training for me, Becky, Kate, Chris and Jo. So we now have 10 run leaders once our license comes through, meaning we are ready to plough on and expand what we do in the sessions and on the road. Looking forward to setting up some different training sessions.
Plenty of Kings and Queens this week with the Swansea Half and the Cardiff Tri. What a great day was had by everyone, the other Kings and Queens are the people who gave up their time to support all of us who ran Vaughan, Linda, Vicky and Emma you don’t know how great it is to see that support when you are pushing that little bit and how nice to hear your name called out from quarter of a mile away when you can’t even see who is calling it!! 😉 .
There is 1 particular Queen of the road this week and that goes to Kay Lawless for knocking an amazing 20 minutes of her PB for a half marathon. Maybe two Queens with Sarah Beams completing her first Half and a King being Tim Davies with his first one too.
So that Saturday and Sunday covered but lets not forget Sunday night, a brilliant evening where there was some bling and T shirt envy going on, alas the Cardiff tri bling was not a big as the Swansea one and no T shirt in Cardiff to go with the lovely pink one from Swansea, Miquel you will have to come to Swansea next year although your number tattoo was very fetching.
79 runners out there last week. A grand total of 1534 kms and 200 runs and I know we are miles short there because Llio did the half and its not on there. One new name on our lists this week so welcome Liz Perna.
Top distance goes to Chris Metcalf again this week and a great effort of 65.2km , for the ladies Vicky Mead ran 49.6 and also the biggest single run of 30km. Well done to you both.
Very pleasing to say we have a new name for the Nana goat with Mena Rees climbing 1037m during the week.
The pace setter for this week was Chris Metcalf running his massive distance at an average of 4:37/km
Only 23 post 6:30’s this week, top distance goes to Vicky with her impressive 49.6 but not far behind is Menna Rees on 48.1km.
Dab of the week……… Nice to have a submission for this although there was a late entry from Tudor, Miquel gets his Dab winner dressed in his neoprene suit. #PRRdab
#PRROntour – Well no hash tags to find but I know you have been out there.
Mentioned in dispatches…..
Quiet this week in dispatches only 3 to mention Rhian Collier, Sam Taylor ans Sarah Shepheard.
Rhian Collier, 15 seconds off you best previous and well under the 5 mins mark.
Sam Taylor, equalled your previous best, well done.
Sarah Shepheard, a few more seconds off your previous best, well done.
If you’re running in the heat to make sure you have plenty of water with you and for the bigger runs make sure you eat more than you would normally to get that energy in, I think we need a new hash tag #PRRCarbing should be some interesting pics of food.Lots of great running there, the average pace for the group was 6:06. 🙂 Great running by everyone in the hot weather and lots of distances which would have slowed it down.
If anyone has signed up for the Cardiff half recently, don’t forget to set PRR as your team on Active.com, almost time to start the preparation for the Cardiff half, if you’re new to the group don’t forget to sign up to help make the magic 100.
Keep an eye out for the organised runs on the facebook page, If your are heading out post a message to see if anyone wants to join you over half term, there are a few more people around during the day.
Keep up the efforts 🙂
