beders very very windy , made it very hard so well pleased to knock nearly 2 minutes off my course PB. felt good all the way, luckily the wind was behind me for the last few miles even if it did have a sting in the tail when you turned directly into the wind for the last 0.75 miles !

pato1967 Flippin heck it was windy. The headwind we had to run into in the last half a mile was hard going. Congratulations to everyone who did this today. Well organised race and liked the holdall as the momento 

Good to see some other fetchies at the start (there was even a camera to record the moment) Unaffiliated 1:35:24 1:38:58 1:38:00 1:38:58 63.09

podrunner Not done this course before but could be a new pb if it is as flat as i am expecting from the reports i have read. Might still struggle to knock much off my current pb though, it'll be close. OUTCOME - Really tough in the very windy weather. No chance of a new PB, good course and well supported race though.

Sushi. Training had gone well but been a little patchy the last 2 weeks. Feel there is a good base though so aiming to finally break 1:55 FERC, Cadence Tri 1:50:20 1:55:32 1:54:00 1:56:28 57.26

WorkersPlaytime For the last half mile my running style was just like an Its a Knockout contestant on one of those massive rubber bands. How windy was that?? Great day though. Good to meet up with Sioux and Wrexham Rob. Even JennyJane enjoyed her 2 mile run! Whitchurch Whippets 1:44:59 1:53:56 1:54:00 1:57:04 52.90
wrexhamrob aiming to be inside the  2hour point, moving back towards my usual 1-50, probably 1hr57 reasonable for this , as its a bit of a comeback race. Buckley RC 1:43:52 1:57:38 1:57:00 1:57:38 55.39
XB I set out with a plan to get me to 1:55. I set out well - miles 1 to 3 were just as they should be. Then the wheels came off - a combination of the gusty conditions and the quads still aching from Thursday meant that there was nothing in the tank for miles 4 to 6. After that, it was just a case of hanging on and grinding it out. Thanks to words of encouragement from Fetchies and really supportive locals I managed to get to 12.5 miles with a few walk breaks. I was looking for a flourishing finish - the headwind on the run-in put a stop to that!! On reflection I'm chuffed that I managed to grind out a reasonable time (for me) in those harsh conditions.
As always, it's great to be able to meet new fetchies and say hello again to some familiar faces. FERC 1:46:39 1:53:59 1:55:00 1:57:29 53.59
