Millennium Runs On 10k

Beijing Blade The course was very flat and was all road.  So it was set up for a good time.

I felt pretty good throughout, with the exception of the last mile which was quite hard.  I took it easy for the first mile, though I still did in about 6 minutes 10 seconds.  Second and third miles in a little under 6 min 30 eachh.  A little over 19 minutes at the half way mark.  Averaged c. 6 min 50 miles for the second half.

Boycie One of my oldest PBs and the only distance I have not PBd in 2007 - you can bet your house on me PBing here, barring injury or illness... UPDATE: Amazing race - thought I started off too hard with Mile 1 in 5:45, but when mile 2 came up also in 5:45, I thought I could be on for something special... Made mile 3 with a 5:54 and then a 5:49 mile 4. Tired a little as a few slight undulations in the final 2 miles with a 6:03 and a 6:01, but sprint finish saw me home in 36:28 - a pb by over 2 minutes. Finished 30th overall out of 650ish and beat some peeps I am never normally near! Apparently that was worth 430 betting points!!! Unaffiliated 34:46 36:28 37:45 36:28 73.29

rollerman I am in, not sure yet about a pb, too early to tell.

Well what can i say 750 credits bet on me?. Set myself a target of running at 7m30s m/m and did it.
Still feel a bit down as I always think I could have done more! allthough in this case I did strugle from 5.5 miles, but still managed a sprint to keep under the 47 minute mark.

Any comments? Long Eaton Running Club 43:45 46:44 47:00 46:44 61.19
runForestfanrun Perfect course & conditions for a PB. Sorry to anyone who bet on me, I had to ruin it by turning up late and starting right at the back. Still, the Evening Post photographer took my picture so it's not all bad. UKnetrunner 46:54 46:54 46:30 50:08 54.26
Scar Tissue Perfect conditions. Race went pretty well as good as i could have hoped. I got in a group and we worked well to 5 miles. Holme Pierrepont RC 33:31 33:31 33:30 33:31 81.16

SPKoF OMG OMG! All 3 of the 2007 targets have fallen! Sub 20 5k, sub 3:30 full and finally, at the last chance a sub 40 10k. OH yeah baby!

Thanks so much to the 2 non-club runners who dragged me along from mile 4. Mike and Steve - you are legends amongst men.

If you were ballsy and did bet on me well done! Long Eaton Running Club 38:19 39:46 41:00 39:46 67.58
Trehis Six seconds behind my Bolsover run but far more relaxed running. Mansfield Harriers & AC 38:18 39:38 39:45 73.12
