I'm looking forward to it
No idea of time though
Save any bets for a summer 10k
Met loads of Fetchies - some old some new. Ran with Mrs Funkin for about 6 miles - amazing level pace. Very hot so aimed to just get round - job done!
Ah well I finished which is better than some. Hot and hilly not a day for fast times. 179 out of 600 finishers
Going for a PB on this one. Only raced at 10 miles once before and it's 2 weeks after a marathon. **Update** sorry to those of you who bet. Legs felt tired from the start and the heat got to me too. First 3 miles were OK and on target but just couldn't keep it going.
Pre-race: Aparantly an improved route, no more bottle neck start!! Should take a few minutes of my previous time. Over the past few years I've always seem to have a niggle of some description for this race. Hopefully, touch wood, I'll be able to give it 100% this year. Want to beat 1:30 on this race, even better if I could get a new PB.
*Post-race* - So much for my pre-race optimisium. Not fully match fit, but expecting about 1:30. 1st few miles fine, then slowly lost pace. Defeated by the heat, could it have been hotter!?! My slowest 10miler ever...
I was hoping for sub 1.30 but thought it may be an ask on a hilly course on a hot day. My PB stood at 1.37. I had a great race. I planned to run 9 mm up to mile 7 (slower up the hills and making up for it on the down hills). I ran between 8.5 and 9.5 most of the time and managed to pick up speed towards the end (although the hills were hard work!) I passed lots of people, which was great, and caught up and over took a few club mates, one of whom paced me over the last 2.5 miles to make sure I came in well within my target, smashing another PB! A lovely run, a few hills but not too bad and really pretty. Updated with official time, rather than Garmin time. Still a great PB and ess than a minute in it but might just make it easier to beat next time!
ooh it were hot
It was too hot for me today and the undulations exposed my current level of fitness - two years ago I ran 1:05:10. It was good training though for the long summer races I've got planned.
Soooo hot and hilly!!
V strong in first 5 miles (29'00) but died in the second half. Felt strong though and on better day could have done much better.
Heard that this is a little undulating. Therefore with no knowledge of the course I'm aiming for sub 70. *UPDATE* very happy with the result. It was warm out there, and a bit hilly. Came 83rd overall out of 600.
Good hard run, but very hot!
Am running this not racing - don't waste your bets! Although...... my 10 mile pb is a couple of years old........
Lots of fun in the sun - well I enjoyed the first 6 miles and then regretted the throwaway comment I had made to a friend at the start - 'I would much rather run 10 miles than 10k any time'. What was I thinking??
Oh well - a beautiful course with lovely scenery to admire, and I did get a teeny pb, on my watch if not on the official time.
Also met 2 fetchies at the start, one of whom gave me a jelly baby. Lovely. Thank you!
Mr BooBoo La Boy
PB by 10mins but that was a few years ago
