Southend Classic 10k

Bob! Well, I'll be aiming to beat Dicks PB 0f 45.52, really don't know if I can run a 10k that fast! Should be a PB for me though.
UPDATE:
I had a number of targets today, and when I saw the weather I wondered whether any of them were acheivable.
Target 1 : To beat my PB of 48.38 set on a hilly course at Brentwood
Target 2 : To beat my long term aim of 47.30 for 10k
Target 3 : To beat 46.51 which would give me my first over 65%+ WAVA
Target 4 : To beat dick's PB of 45.52
Target 5 : To hit the holy grail that is a sub 45 10k
As MeatLoaf nearly said, 4 out of 5 ain't bad! 45.39 (subject to Southend AC timekeepers)

Highway Star Disappointed with the weather debated whether to run but after starting out in Bristol at 5am Saturday travelling to Liverpool and then across to arrive late afternoon in Southend, thought after travelling that distance I couldn't justify pulling out. Glad I wasn't put off by the weather great course-flat PB despite pulling/strain left leg muscle at about 7k. Getting to see my sister though briefly who also ran the race and got a PB made it twice as special. Day finished back in Bristol attending ' Seasick Steve' in concert. Great music, good company and cold beers,to end a hectic but enjoyable weekend. Unaffiliated 1:08:00 1:08:00 1:10:00 1:08:00 47.29

rooooley Good course, flat, bad weather though, wind and rain, long wait at finish and a long walk in the cold for the T.shirt, came 529 out of 1542 Unaffiliated 38:41 46:33 46:00 47:58 60.10
rosa really wanted to be under 39 mins but I guess what with the conditions, and not so great start, it wasn't too bad. Certainly a lot better than last weeks race! Serpentine RC 39:20 39:20 39:20 77.12
sav123uk Miserable weather.  Started at the back and after 3k was on target for 53-54 mins.  Picked it up after 4k and made it in under 50 mins a PB for me.  First time at this race, and the first time finishing a race totally pleased with my performances Unaffiliated 48:42 49:45 52:00 49:45 54.68
