In fact there are only two real reasons that I continue to visit Sussex:
- The fact that a number of friends and family live there
- Harvey's Best Bitter
To continue the Homeric references, in this case (as with so many other times in my life), poor preparation was my Achilles heel. Was it just my imagination or were people giving my a wide berth as they overtook me?
Adrian also slowed down, not through alcohol, but instead because of his most recent investment: a running buggy enabling his daughter to join him while he runs.
Tommy didn't run, mainly I suspect, as I was not around to give him a lift to the parkrun. It strikes me that I may be shooting myself in the foot with my generosity here.
All in all, a slow week for the Road to Sub 20 gang, or perhaps putting a positive spin on it: a week of consolidation, before mounting a big push?
