Barrow 6 - LRRL Round 1

Sun January 14 2007 Listed by Boycie
15 Entrants Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
Boycie Reckon I can knock another 40s or so off my Boxing Day time - will be better prepared - i.e. not hungover! Also will be in a race situation and run the otherway round, which is by all accounts the quicker route! Definitely worth a few credits... UPDATE: Suffering with knee problem - resting up for two days - hopefully be okay... RACE UPDATE: Managed a PB by 13 seconds - not as quick as hoping, but good in circumstances of having had knee problems and the like. The breeze made it hard in places, but overall a good race. 5:47, 6:13, 6:07, 6:09, 6:23, 6:29 splits... Unaffiliated 34:19 35:40 36:40 37:06 69.54

Firestarter Yes, Yes and Yes again!!! Never thought I'd get a 40 min 6miler in the bag, but today it was comfortable, I reckon had it not been for the last hill I could have gone under the 40 barrier, next time eh! Big field and a pleasant day for a race, cool and crisp to begin, with a bit of a head-wind in places but overall decent conditions for a race. Bring on Ashby 5! Firestarter is now Hermitage Harriers RC 37:15 40:43 40:43 67.82
Middler Just managed to get in under the 50min barrier - and really only just.  Ecstatic - my best ever time and without proper training over the Christmas period.  Beautiful day for running, good course, chuffed all round. Unaffiliated 49:59 49:59 49:59 62.12
Rich963 Very pleased with that - PB by 90 seconds (original was set on the same course last year).  Shows all this hard training has paid off and was perfect conditions - cold, bright and not too windy.
Sat in with a clubmate for the first 3 miles (I'm sure that first mile is still short, but the second two make up for it).  At 3 miles decided to just go for it and see how long I could hang on.  Suffered over the last mile, but just had enough to keep overtaking people to the end.  6th for the club, 87th overall.
Splits were: 6.09 6.24 6.40 6.13 6.17 6.32 Stilton Striders RC 38:15 38:15 38:15 67.45

Scouse Bird I put this down as 206, that was impossible as my ikle girl was only  2 and a half months old! Would have been great though!!!!!!! Fleckney and Kibworth Running Club 54:38 55:03 55:03 53.21
SteveC Good condtions, nice mildly undulating course (bar the last climb!).  Had a calf twinge at mid-way (19:30), shortened my stride pattern and seemed to avoid a full blown tear (sore now though!).  Very pleased with this start to the season. Unaffiliated 39:06 39:06 39:40 66.22

ThorntonRunner Hope to knock a minute off my Boxing Day time, but a little worried about a slightly sore throat - hope it's not going to develop into anything.
UPDATE: Sore throat developed into hacking cough. Spent much of Saturday night watching cricket on Sky rather than keeping wife awake with the cough. Got to sleep about 4:30. In the circumstances satisfied if not happy with 40:40. Gradually ran out of steam: splits - 6:27, 6:40, 6:51, 6:38, 6:57, 7:04. Unaffiliated 39:34 39:34 40:00 40:40 69.01
