DIY Diva Really love these Serpie events. Great to use as training runs.  Thrilled with current fitness now.  Great start to the New Year since this time last year I gingerly ran just one mile after returning from a knee injury.  Fab Fetch Fest.  Feel like I'm hugging SarahL daily atm!

Helegant Dilemma - do I plod round as a training run - which would take forever, or do I get caught up in the race atmosphere and make an effort to go a bit faster to start the year with a baseline time.  Plod would be 01:30:00, race could be 01:15:00 or less.  Presently (31/12) legs feel as if 01:30:00 would be a good time.
1/1/08 Decided to go for a fast training run - which was to fast on lap 1, great on lap 2 and faded on lap 3. Official gun to fininsh time now recorded. Bedford Harriers AC, FERC 1:06:58 1:14:16 1:10:59 1:14:16 46.71

Puffing Bertie Well another smiley race for me......and im still feeling good about it.
I just know once i have lost some weight and my head is completly sorted i will be knocking those PBs off :-)

I tried to hang on to kitty and her mum but i think it was on the second lap i lost them, but i could still see them....thats the beauty of 3 laps, no one is ever that far away from you even if they are 1 LAP ahead.
I only got lapped by 3 guys who went zoooming past, so that was pleasing. Unaffiliated 53:43 53:43 53:43 59.37

Slowly But Shirley I'm bearing in mind that despite my best efforts, this is New Year's Day after all ... following a night of a certain amount of alchohol!  I don't kid myself that I'll be staying off the drink entirely!!  At least it should keep me in check a bit though ... and what a great way to start the New Year off!
Update:  Loved it and considered it a miracle that I got under the hour with the lack of sleep and more alcohol than intended (oops!  New Year's Resolution ...).  Went off too fast in 1st lap, flagged a lot on the 2nd and then got a second wind on the the 3rd lap as I was near to finishing (amazing what an incentive that finish line is!).
