Customary Customs Cast
I cast off all pretensions of speed and struggled through Friday's Customs 5k race in about 21.48 this week. This weekly race has been a regular addition to my program recently as it gives me a chance to run a flat fast 5k course when completely exhausted from a week of hard running and from Thursday night's excesses. The usual gang was there; Bob Harlow looking for a race-off with me (I send him on his way as usual), his good flash lady making a good target to run down towards the end of the course - up the hill, huff and puff, and then young Thea in a good mood after all when she ends up winning this week's race and taking the prize money, and me pleased to see that such a nice person has finally won.
Thursday's Track Substitute.
All this was after our excessive Thursday of substituting track races with a session comprising 800 + 400 + 800 + 400 + 800 for each runner in relay teams of two, so no rest for the wickedly fast. Ken was the only one of ten who faded really badly but he returned to top form later that evening at Jen's farewell as he assumed the role of official photographer. Great recovery, Ken! I fear, though, that he has learned Ewen's trick of how to avoid being in Team Moore photos - be the one who takes them. Regardless, thanks Ken. Bye Jen.
