Becky’s Time Trials

Time Trial this Wednesday 7th June , Mutters Moor Car park, look forward to seeing you all,  please sign in as EARLY as possible to know your start time . I will be there from 6.30, First runner away at 7pm, please warm up until your allocated start time, aim to be on the start line in time (no later than 1 minute before your off). Results from the first two rounds (open in a new window)  for the short and long courses are available. If you didn’t run last month, it is not too late to take part.
The Time Trial is friendly competition, run on a level playing field for all abilities. The aim is to run faster than your steady pace (slower than your 10k pace but faster than your half marathon pace) to gain the lowest tally number at the finish line. The timings are not as important in the competition, however they are used as a guide to assign your personal handicap. Your handicap will be re assigned after each event as your times change. The overall objective is to finish the season by consistently collecting a lower tally number, whilst improving your pace. At the end of the season we will take your best four tally numbers and find our winners. Also other prizes will be presented to participants, not just the winning Trophies!!

David Skinner

Bit of a disaster at my Killerton parkrun today. After only just over 1k I went sprawling when my right ankle gave way. I limped to the finish but now my ankle is very swollen and sore and I must be doubtful for the Otter rail and River run. Not the first time one of my ankles has given way. Any tips on either strengthening ankles or any recommendations for ankle supports? ... See MoreSee Less

oh dear that sounds painful, might be an idea to get it checked first

East Devon Physio are very good for assessment and advice that I have found spot on

ive been getting help from East Devon Physio for my knee, very helpful

East devon physio in seaton are the best around

East devon physio at Sidford good too

pmed you.

That is a tough one David Skinner. Make sure it is right before you start again or it will only get worse.

You need a proper 8 week rehab plan to get fully better as untreated sprain will re occur in 70% of people. Im a running specialist sports therapist in honiton. Pm me if you would like an appointment

Because it was so swollen and painful I ended up in h

Whoops, didn't mean to hit the send button! Anyway ended up at hospital and the verdict is sprained ligaments, so I'm now strapped up. Thank you for all your comments.

This week (June 23rd), the Friday run will start from Salcombe Hill car park, Sidmouth, at 10am. As conditions are much fresher now, we might need to warm ourselves up with a coffeee at the Blue Ball after the run!

Without wishing to lower the tone, last night's run on Woodbury Common was the sweatiest of the year. Big 'thank you' to Ben DevonOrienteer for being our personal guide and finding trails I'd never seen before. Big 'respect' to newcomers Toby and Chris who kept up with Jason Drew's formidable pace... ... See MoreSee Less

It was to hot but good

I meant to mention Lucinda Williams to you. Her recent releases have been excellent. Country blues, with superb guitar work!
