Durbat Chip time 49:12 missed PB by +35 seconds
Perfect running conditions, had a chat to Heidi M, who I think does look like Puddington but I do wear glasses which I didn’t have on at the time , and RooA who wasn’t running cos she was proper poorly.
Was doing ok till the last kilometre when the wheels came off a bit until I got a shout of “go on Durbat!” which I think was Roo but I was hallucinating at the time so couldn’t be sure, either way it helped.
Interestingly at 49:12 I was 3 seconds slower than last year so was obviously not trying hard enough. Elsombreo and Mrs Elsombreo both had a good runs, just need some brandy sauce for the puddings now

PJL I seem to be a PB machine at the moment, so expecting another here, despite not racing 10k yet this year due to concentrating on a half-marathon goal.   What a fantastic day/route/result!  A gorgeous crisp, frosty, sunny morning.  The beginnings of a cold made me doubt myself beforehand, so I foolishly didn't bet on myself, expecting a time around 40mins.  Nice downhill first km got me warmed up nicely and I was into a good rhythm by 2-3km, averaging 3:45/km despite a few undulations.  Hit 5km at 18:53 (a PB!), still feeling strong so I knew I'd done enough for a PB.  Unexpectedly managed to maintain the same pace all the way to the end, falling into rhythm with another runner from about 6-8km, then spurred on by the leading lady overtaking me between 8-9km - outsprinted her on the final hill.  58th out of 1410. Unaffiliated 37:50 37:50 39:00 37:50 71.27
red panda Unaffiliated 42:45 42:45 42:30 44:06 64.85
roger, may be the faster brother ag recovery race after achilles prob, steady first half then pushing a bit second when no pain Unaffiliated 36:52 38:16 38:52 71.86
runningowl very happy with this. garmin ran out of charge just before start so couldn't track time. might have made sub 39min not. aim for this early next year. Sheffield RC 36:51 39:42 40:00 39:42 67.32
Sombrero-ho-ho-ho Perfect pacing - went through 5K in 21:27, second 5K in 21:17.  I can see sub-40 in the future.  My best WAVA for years.
Wife got a PB too...56:26. North Derbyshire Running Club 40:22 42:44 43:59 42:44 62.73
