Ally2 No83. In good shape. wet and wild winds mean I have a low 33 in me on better day.  1k 3:17, 2k 6:45, 3k 10:09, 5k 16:45 (in 6th place) 8k 27:21 had stitch at 9k but battled to line. Came 4th so pleased. Right at the front and was in group of 5 for first 2k, the winner storming ahead, then dropped back from them for next 3k but pulled in couple on back 5.

BrianJ Sorry fellow chemists I did try to win you points, but the incline and headwind around 6-7K got me and left myself too much to do. One day this race will have perfect weather!! North Herts Road Runners 55:07 55:07 56:00 56:57 53.66

Very pleased with time - faster than I thought I'd do.  I did think I'd gone out too fast but held on to pace!

Lieutenant Lucerne Once again for this race it was wet and windy. Slow first 2Kms uphill into the wind and driving rain. Then a few faster Kms. At 6 Km my left shoe lace worked loose and got tangled. Tried to tie it, but needed a second stop, by which time the knot refused to budge, leaving the shoe very loose. Fortunately it didn't cost me a PB, probably just a second fastest time at 10K. (If you bet on me, you should be able to recoup some of your losses when I run a 5K in June.) Unaffiliated 37:45 40:12 41:07 70.69

Lycra Hurricane Wet and windy, but an excellent race well organised.  My pb chances were taken away by having to re-tie my laces 3 times! Bedford Harriers AC, Rushden Runners 48:22 48:52 49:09 63.25

ml2run A bit dissapointed that didn't break or get nearer to 50 mins but still took off at around 2 mins from last years time. Thought after the FLM training I would do it easily maybe that was my downfall, don't think the rain and wind helped - even just mentally. Bloomin' weather the poor organisers should be a lovely day out as well as a good 10k race. Dunmow Tri Club 51:30 52:11 50:00 52:11 58.39

Mylo Overall pleased with 47.11 (Unofficial time) but difficult to say how much quicker I could have gone without the wind and rain; someone I was talking to said he had done the race 3 years ago but 2 minutes quicker. All hypothetical of course but just maybe next year it might not be wet and windy ! Braintree & District AC, Mid Essex Casuals 42:39 46:15 47:00 47:10 57.39

Vicksta Sorry PB betters. Had a rubbish race. Lots of factors contributed to the race being rubbish. Had a tiring weekend with 2 x 5 h drives and up until 3 with a fair amount of to drink on the saturday night. Legs felt heavy from first mile and the uphill start really didn't help me. Consequently I never really got my legs going. The weather was awful, driving rain and wind. But the main thing was that I just didn't have my racing head on. At Stortford I was really going for it, whereas today I just couldn't be bothered. I knew it wasnt my day from 1Km in, with my legs feeling heavy and by about 4 Km I was not at all happy. So I ended up at my default comfort HM pace. And stuggled to keep at that tbh! So ended up 1 min 15 secs slower than my PB from 2 weeks ago (which was a harder course), and even slower than my pre-mara Ely 10K PB. Oh well, there are plenty of races coming up, but I am disappointed to have run so badly on what is potentially a fast course. 37th Woman.

Vindicator Unofficial time: Sorry failed to beat my PB on this one. I had a weekend of travelling to a wedding which was hardly good preparation and the weather was hardly inspiring today either. The result was that my heart just was not in it. Had the weather been OK, I think I could have beaten my PB, but not by much. Today, 41 minutes was not going to happen.
