Ashton Court Parkrun – Saturday 20th October 2012

Several regulars were missing for Saturday’s parkrun; no doubt under strict instructions from Chris Elson to take it easy before the first Gwent League cross country fixture on Sunday. Despite this there were 23 runners taking part. Rather like the England football team there appeared to be some confusion as to when to take the caffeine or the sleeping tablets, with some mixed results being returned. Notwithstanding that five runners did achieve PBs. Tom Burgess continued his recent good form with a third successive PB. Alison Engledew, obviously suffering no ill effects from last Sunday’s Mendip Muddle managed a two second improvement. Abbie Salter and Graham Grout also improved on their previous bests.

This week’s Performance of the Week title goes to Darren Overend. He has achieved two successive PBs at Ashton Court. However his last run was on 19th November 2011; so that’s over eleven months ago. So this was Darren’s comeback run after a lengthy and frustrating injury. Darren has only returned to training at the Whitehall Monday night sessions in the last month, so this result was highly creditable.
