AngeM Supposed to be going for sub-47:00 for this 10k according to the marathon training program....
*Update*  Nice race.  Very windy day with strong gusts too (the kind that take your breath away), especially around half way point.  Was running some 7.30's but then slowed later on.  Av 7.39 pace.  So not quite sub 47.00 but pleased with this effort, bodes well for the marathon, sort of on target.  Plus last time I ran this sort of time for a 10k, I was in my early 30's!!!  Sorry to all those that bet on me, maybe on a less windy day and if I hadn't started right at the back, I could have shaved 40 seconds off?? City of Norwich AC 45:08 47:40 47:40 64.82

Coopz Approximate time.  Things were going well for about 8kn (despite cold and very strong wind!) then knee went and had to stop twice over last 2k.  Really, really, really hacked off with this leg.  Need a new one.  Bournville Harriers 45:48 48:53 52:30 53:26 55.75

Duke of Drayton First time at Fradley, hoping for another good 10k.  Had a week of clocking uip 2000 miles visiting wife in hospital so legs are shot think I'll take it steady on this one.   Did better than I expected however LH calf is giving me grief now!  Good course for PB's, very nice momento lacking a bit in atmosphere though however would do again.

Edster Ended up being cold and wet but still a good race. Took it easy due to foot injury and did better than expected. Royal Sutton Coldfield AC 49:16 49:16 55:00 53:54 50.23

pafa First race in over 25 years. Took up running again 4 weeks ago and was talked into doing this one. Glad I did, well organised, nice course (shame about the rain and the wind). Aimed at 55 mins but did 49:28 well pleased. On to Silverstone next week. Lichfield RC 45:51 45:51 55:00 49:28 56.91

SteveV Not done a 10k before, a sub 45 min would be great. Well I didnt expect this result and also  took a chunk out of my 5 mile pb on the way round that i only set 5 weeks or so ago. Unaffiliated 35:28 37:41 45:00 43:01 62.11
