(Mama) Pigeon Wow i'm really impressed with my time. It was a good fast course and cool conditions although the wind and rain were a slight issue. As I suspected it hurt like hell but no apin no gain right?! Anstey Amblers and Runners 25:54 25:54 28:03 25:54 57.01
Barky Good little evemt, managed a good pb by about 3mins :-).  It did rain a tad heavy! Hermitage Harriers RC 20:34 20:34 20:34 67.61
Boycie Pretty unfavourable for running - wet, windy and a bit hilly to boot. Tried hard for the first couple of k, but head, heart and legs not in it, so steadied off and ran it as a hard training run... Unaffiliated 16:59 17:24 18:22 71.27

Chameleon Pushed too hard at the start - 4 mins for the 1st K. Managed to slow it down for most of the way till about 4k, where I tried to pick it up again. Not much left for a sprint finish, but happy with the time in my first race for about 11 months. Unaffiliated 22:05 22:05 25:00 22:05 58.81

JulesO I had no idea what this was going to be like - but I knew it was going to be fun, whatever - Evilpixie, Smoky and me on the same track, at the same time!!

OK, so the weather was foul, but the track was great, and amazingly I beat my predicted time with a fast finish!

...And I only told one poor joke ;) Unaffiliated 31:56 31:56 32:00 31:56 42.93

sLickster Went pretty much to plan as a hard training run, heard it was a little hilly so wasn't flat out for a PB. Time to be confirmed (couldn't tell exactly where the finish was!) but garmin had splits of 3.40, 3.52, 4.01, 3.40, 3.43 +9 seconds for the extra 50 metres (so 18.56 through 5k?). Incline was between 1.5k and 2.5k so thats why 2nd and 3rd k times were down. 2nd fastest 5k and really nice circuit and lovely pair of embroided running socks, shame I quite literally only bought some new ones today!!! HH crew were out in force in the lovely weather... Hermitage Harriers RC, Midland Masters A C, Team derby runner 18:29 19:05 18:59 19:05 68.03
Smoky Slightly undulating course, apart from the breeze and occassional heavy downpour, a very nice course! Unaffiliated 32:21 32:21 37:30 32:21 40.19
ThorntonRunner Not expecting a quick time - not race fit and will be running to and from home to this - 6 miles each way. So using it as a tempo session the middle of a long run. Unaffiliated 18:50 20:28 20:00 20:28 71.00
