I decided to stay on the grass again today. I ran round Brodie Park in the early evening. I did my normal four laps all between 8mins 36secs and 8mins 46secs for the 1.08mile loop.
I’ve been able to get an appointment at RAH in Paisley for next Thursday to get new insoles made. I feared I might have to go through the whole process of waiting to get a NHS physio appointment again but thankfully as a returning patient I got an appointment straight away.
I’ve been able to find someone to run with on Sunday. Ross & I are going to meet at the Citadel Leisure Centre in Ayr at 7.30am. We’ll leave one car there and drive back to Catrine. Then we’ll run the 20 or so miles back to Ayr along the RAW route. Once we’ve arrived back in Ayr we’ll drive back to Catrine and head home. Sorted.
Ross did the race last year but reckons he got lost a few times so hopefully we’ll be able to find our way. I’ve downloaded all Tim’s maps from the RAW web site, laminated them and tied them together so I’m ready.
Now that the RAW is back on I’ve been taking a bit more interest in how the SUMS results are going with a race to go.
It looks very exciting at the top end of each category.
In the overall male competition Jack Brown is just 2pts ahead of Grant Jeans. They have both run four races and are both running the RAW race. In the tables below those who are highlighted in yellow are running the RAW race.
I reckon if Grant beats Jack then he should be champion unless they both finish down the field.
Marco is safe in 3rd place as even if John McLaughlin wins the race he won’t have enough points to catch him.
Here are the results with one race to go ….
The Female overall competition is also close. Sharon Law is leading but Lucy Colquhoun is favourite as she only needs to score 316pts in her fourth race. They are both running the RAW. I don’t think anyone can catch Sharon for 2nd. Debs will need to score 467pts to catch Jamie Aarons to take 3rd place. I reckon that means she’ll have to finish 7th or better.
Bill Hutchison is favourite for 2nd place. I’m 35pts behind Bill. So by my estimate I would need to beat Bill by at least 7 places, maybe more, depending on how many of the 79 entered runners actually start and finish. I need to score at least 134 pts to move into 3rd place.
