Hungarton 7 - LRRL (4)

18 Entrants Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
Ally2 7th july: Fancy a race and so I hope to enter on the day (see how long run tomorrow goes). Never raced over 7 but going on 10k time this year hope to get sub 46- hills or no hills, heat or no heat. Race: watchtime of 43:24 but will probably be confirmed as 43:30ish. I enjoyed passing lots of people on the hills and then being overtaken on the downhills. Overall pleased with time. Met Boycie; he had a storming run and was ahead of me at mile 5 then I left him on the last big hill! Came 45th. Notts AC, Hermitage Harriers RC 37:19 43:33 46:00 43:33 69.77
Beccals hope to knock a bit off my previous best time for 7 miles, but it won't be a lot! Amazed at result because I was feeling truely shattered and really didn't feel like running.  Gave up looking at watch after first couple of miles and just ran to how I felt.  It was an undulating course, with a long hill which I kept running up.  So overall happy.

Boycie Unexpected chance to do this one... Close call for a PB - definitely fitter than last year 45:38, but it is quite a hilly course and has the tendency to be hot even though it's an evening race... UPDATE: A cheeky 90s PB - started steady and managed to up the tempo in the last 3 miles - accepting for the 6th mile with the massive bloody hill!!! Should have been more confident about the PB... Surprising though as I felt a bit rubbish throughout the day.... Unaffiliated 41:18 42:33 45:00 43:41 69.56

Rich963 Current PB was set a year ago on this course on a really hot evening - must be due for improvement this year...
And there was improvement!  1min 22secs of it - very pleased with that.  Not quite the 2 minutes I hoped for, but I'll take it.  Splits were 6.37 6.51 7.06 6.53 6.27 7.24 6.15 - I think I judged the effort well - it is a tight start, which helped with not going off too fast and a couple of really big hills (3rd/4th mile and 6th mile) where I overtook a few people.  Enjoyable race though - and a few points for those who bet on me... Stilton Striders RC 47:36 47:36 47:00 47:36 63.83

ThorntonRunner Have been injured (adductor) last two weeks and still suffering, but want to run this to maintain my 100% record in league races. Ran 4 miles on Sunday in 8min/mile pace without a reaction, so currently intend running this, but at nowhere near full pace. UPDATE: Still not right, so will treat this as an easy pace training run - have downgraded prediction even further accordingly! UPDATE: Satisfied with result. Started gently and gradually upped the effort. Probably 3-4minutes slower than would have been at full fitness. Some reaction this morning, but not too bad - I'll take a few days off now!

way2slow Hadn't been feeling well for a couple of days before and had done a 5-miler on the tues so didn't have as much energy as usual for this one. Decided to treat it more as a training run than a race and just go off nice and steady and see what happened. Was rather hard work but loved the hills -  Am sure the 2nd one went on for about 3/4 mile! The ice-cream van at the finish was a stroke of pure genius - was the best 99 i've ever had!!!

wildebeast not my favourite race but always nice to do one you dont do every year no where near my best for this one and hoping for overcast   well i suppose thats what you call a good prediction still a hard race and disappointed i had to stop for water at the top of the 2 hills but pleased with the time Hinckley Running Club 44:17 46:59 47:00 46:59 66.93
