This was my first 10 miler last year. I have only done one this year (Barrow 10) which was very hot and hilly. Hoping to go under 90 minutes!!! NO!!! Will DEFINATELY go under 90 minutes. I can do this in training so no problem!!!
Update!!! Well I did it!!! Over 5 minutes off my PB but I did know that it was pretty likely!!!
Foot sore before I even started running!! Went off quicker than I had planned and by 3m was a little knackered. There are two fly overs to run over and they really took it out of me!! We tried to drop the pace a little and by 5m things were back on track and the next 3 miles were ok. Started picking people off but had stitch in last half mile. I should be ecstatic because off the time but not so pleased with generally how I felt after the run. Legs tight. Foot sore. Ankle niggly and stiff back. BLAH!! BLAH!! BLAH!!! Apparently that's how you are supposed to feel after a PB!! but normally I just feel knackered not hurting. Going to book a physio session tomorrow so he can give me a once over!!!
Going to talk Frizzle all the way round to a 10m PB!! UPDATE: V45PB as I hoped for and Frizzle ran a lifetime PB so mission accomplished!! Good race on a flat, fast course but very "open" course often suseptible to strong fen winds but not to-day - good days work!!
This is a nailed on fetch PB unless i get injured during the race. have regularly been sub 63:30 in halfs and 15 milers this last 6 months so come and get some credits!
(went through 10miles at GER in 60:52). Last race in Cambs Road league also. Am 6th in league so hoping to push for top 5 place in final lge standings!
UPDATE:- strong breeze/wind meant lost 15s/mile between 4 and 9 miles and this cost me a sub-60:(
BUT still a PB big fetch PB and lifetime PB as took 31s of previous best set as a 19yr old in May 1994:)
AND surprise bronze medal in Cambs county champs which were incorporated in race:) (was in silver with 800m to go thought didn't know positions at time) v windy and boring course but overall v pleased and will now have to do NV10 to crack 60mins.
No 8 was top bloke and helped me big time in last 4 miles so pleased he got PB too.
Went in car with frizzle (PB), Old man (M45 PB) and Malc (M40 county bronze) so happy car on way back :):):):):)
Big up to Marts, followed him from 1.5m to the halfway point and then worked with him to 9 where he had a bit more left and I came in about 20 seconds behind him at the end.
Good race, flat and fast but headwind from 4.5m to 7.5m made it quite difficult. Two and a half minute PB and the next 10 miler I'm going sub 60 :-). Full analysis will be blogged.
Fabbo weather and a well organised, happy race.
Really enjoyed it and thanks to Gary who upped my mile time by 20 secs as i ran along with him
Terrible run, went through 10m in half marathon 2 wks ago in 57.54 so was expecting low 57 today. Slowest 10m for 9 years.
Enjoyed this race. The weather was good. Was given a lovely purple fenland 10 water bottle as we crossed the finish line.
