Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

24.53 for me on the Grange mile loop at 7am. Only had to social distance twice so nice and quiet. Very pleased with my time although needed more restraint in the first 2km:) Thanks Brian for all your work with the results, lovely to run in my NHRR vest.

Thanks Brian. Nice to still feel ‘a part of’!

Lovely sunny 5k along some of the Greenway! Time 29.06
Thanks Brian πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

30:24 - Paula Holm - a run walk on the fields nearby making up the distance on the streets! Thank you for organising!

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

I was out at 7am for a run up to, and around, Ickleford Common. I wanted to keep it off-road in the spirit of FSOM, but had undertestimated quite how lumpy and tussocky most of it is! That's my excuse for a woefully slow time, but I was also enjoying the birdsong and the greening of the environment as spring takes over. Personnel count was 3 dog walkers, 1 walker and 1 other runner - all greeted me cheerily (at a safe distance) apart from the runner. I'd stopped for him on a narrow path and moved right out of his way - I pointedly said 'you're welcome' as he passed me without even a word or a glance .....

Distance: 3.1 miles
Time: 30.28

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

29.11 on a winding route round Baldock.

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

James Keogh 20:58
Clare Hooley 39:54

Done as 11 laps round local playing fields - missed the ‘gritty ‘ nature of the FSotM’s hills but still appropriately uneven underfoot.

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

23:48 warm up with daughter doing Couch 2 5K, then cheated with downhill first section, then struggled to find flat ground, used paddling pool. Simon, minimal Zombies sighting.

Charlie Arnold 21:56
Couple of 2k+ laps on public footpaths by Oldfield Farm between Henlow base and Arlesey at 7.45 this morning. Hilly and rough ground but great to be out in some fresh, clean air on a beautiful morning.

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

I did a virtual run around Central Park on the treadmill.

Apologies I have been corrected it should be my moving time ! So I think I'll crawl under a stone and forget I ever did it today 😫

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

Hi Brian

16:10 for me around the trusted clothall common loop.

Best Wishes

Stewart

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

Nick Malpeli: 19:02 by Strava (though my watch stopped at 18:59, honest). A not very inspiring set of 500m out and backs in the Hitchin Industrial estate - the main benefit being it was certainly socially isolated!

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

Julie Tribe - 3.32 miles in 29.26 minutes. Along St. Michaels to Oakfields Estate, through the alleys to Highbury Road, down St. Johns road, down Hitchin Hill, along Queen St, along Walworth Road, under the railway bridge, past the college and home. Not the most scenic but deserted so better.:relaxed:

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

Richard Weber, 26 mins 12 secs. Not my best but a tricky route with lots of people, road crossings and gates. From Fairfield Park to Arlesey, back to Fairfield and a loop around estate back home.

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

Philip Flack 27mins 48secs for 5k

Ran a loop from Lordship to the Greenway at Willian along to Letchworth gate and Howard Drive.

Starting at 11:15 is too late as loads of people about. Next time I'll be out much earlier!

I missed Mark ringing his bells!!!

Thank you Brian.



Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

37:51

Worked out my own 5k course https://www.strava.com/activities/3252846551, about half on the Greenway, which has the huge advantage of starting and ending at the back gate, which means more of a lie-in! A couple of hills making the climb more or less the same as the parkrun course, but with less mud and more horses.

Delayed start to 10.30, by which time it was getting suprisingly warm. Two other runners, several cyclists and walkers, and a couple of dogs.

Probably my best time on this course in about 6 attempts - only probably because the GPS seems to be erratic down by the A1 perhaps because I go through a tunnel, and today I had to add a few yards to tick over to 5k (the usual finish was 37:41).

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

Thank you for organising.

3.12 in 29:38 nice sunny out and back with a lap of fsotm route, legs are shot I’m blaming PE with Joe!

Well done all πŸ‘πŸ»πŸŒˆ

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

27:26 for 5k

Chose a bumpy off-road run out of Aston and along the Beane valley. Even managed to start at 09:00 and no need for social distancing.

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

21.47 for me. It was on the road as the tracks were so busy this morning. From holwell turn to Holwell, pirton and managed to finish with a short burst down hill from the water tower in pirton.
Thanks for doing this 😊

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

25 minutes on the nose. Round St Ippolyts & Gosmore. Bit more undulating than Norton Common. Delighted with the time, first time in ages I’ve run without my bonkers dog.

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

Hi Brian
I ran the FSOM course this afternoon. Great to be running round the common in warm weather.
Time of 22.02. It was marvellous but those hills don’t get any easier.
Thank you for organising πŸ˜€

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

23.25 for local Park Run in Isle of Man. Ran it in reverse direction so a nuR kraP!! Always enjoy your FOTM event when I'm over visiting. Look forward to seeing you all again when normal service is resumed. Stay well, stay safe.

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

Hey Squirrels! I did 12k so just picked the best times from each km and added it up. Probably not how you’re supposed to do it, but unprecedented times call for unprecedented timing methods 🀣 At least I didn’t give myself a PB, right? Oh, hold on - this probably is a PB at FSOTM, considering I only normally get the chance to do Santa Canta. Oops! 34:29 for me please. Hope you’re all safe and well 🧑

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

Oh, and I forgot to say, I obviously ran around the Letchworth parkrun course.

Re: Virtual FSOM 5k - 4th April 2020 - Times

Sorry - we missed putting our times up yesterday.
However we each did do a measured 5k race around part of the Greenway.

Our times were:

Rob Wallis : 23.56
Diane Wallis: 31.02
Mark Tinkler: 31.02

We look forward to running round the common later in the year, hopefully with all of the other runners together.
