Maidenhead Easter 10

Fri March 21 2008 Listed by lammo
51 Entrants Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
#runningman 🏃 My last warm up race before the London Marathon.
My best over this distance was 1.16.40 set in a training run so 1. 15 would be a new PB for me.
Would like to achieve it but it is not my most important focus as this is my last  warm up event for the London Marathon.

Jonny Hoping I'll be in good enough shape for a PB.  It's going to be a tough Easter with the Compton 20 the day after but I'll give both 100%.  Should be fresh for this one.  Sorry to those who bet on me.  Felt good after 3 miles but calf started to tighten again from there on.  Just didn't feel good for the last 7 miles and became a bit of a struggle.  Had a problem with my health this week which may have been a factor, I think I'm developing another cold :( Unaffiliated 1:06:28 1:13:29 1:13:29 59.99
Keefy Beefy Very good! At best was aiming for 6:52/mile (90-min HM pace) and at worst 7:00/mile. Kept on pace for the first 5 windy miles and then speeded up for the last 5, which were definitely net downhill. Looks promising for a 90-min HM in the next few weeks. Unaffiliated 1:08:35 1:08:35 1:08:35 64.16
keets Felt good first five, loafed a bit up the incline to the railway bridge. Finished strongly. Happy with the time. Garmin has me running nearly a tenth of a mile extra - must have been the wind blowing me around like a leaf :) Unaffiliated 1:15:18 1:19:59 1:20:00 1:19:59 56.06

Knox Pulled ham string at 3 miles.  Carried on but kept stopping to stretch it.  Good flat course.  PB potential.  Would do againg. Reading Joggers 1:25:01 1:27:07 1:27:07 59.89

MadJonny Wasn't looking for a particularly good time - just enjoy running this course.  Pleased to get under 1-25 in the end, and to run a negative split.  The strong headwind slowed me at 4.5 and 8.5 miles but managed a 7-45 mile to finish.  Enjoyed running quickly without pushing too hard.  Once the sun got out it was quite warm and pleasant where the wind relented. Unaffiliated 1:19:56 1:24:44 1:24:44 52.92
manicstreetpounder I managed to keep a 6:30 m/m pace for Wokingham HM last month. So on that basis I'm going for a sub-65 minute time for this race. I've got one or two niggling injuries that may hold me back a bit though. UPDATE: My chip time is 1:03:56 - so very pleased with the time. Enjoyed the course - apart from the bits that were exposed to the wind - and it was very well marshalled. I hope the person needing attention in the finishing straight is OK.

ninjaman Yes. I had a good one. Trick seems to be to start conservatively and do a negative split. Thanks to Chris who had a bit of an off day but helped me in the second half of the race. Striders of Croydon AC 1:04:26 1:08:01 1:10:00 1:08:05 68.78

Rach E I will attempt to run at as close to 6m/m as I can (ankle injury permitting). ***UPDATE*** I was pleased to run how I did given I've hardly run for a month owing to an ankle niggle. I couldn't expect to get close to a pb but the fact I kept consistent mile splits shows I didn't blow up(!) 3rd lady. Now to get some speed back...

RFJ Would like to beat Ryde 10 time (73:XX) that was hilly, this is flat.... but was very windy, (and it wasnt my wind eitehr...)

Met up with PH, Gobi, Rach and Keefy Beefy before the start and went for a warm up with Gobi, then we heard that the race was delayed, Gobi turned round and siad Swindon Striders 1:02:46 1:05:27 1:12:30 1:11:59 62.64
Running Fish dont like road races, dont like flat courses, dont like running in the morning. i had a great time. apart from that, very well organised and marshalled. ran too slowly expecting to be confronted by sustained period of headwind running at some stage, but it didnt appear, and finished with too much left. foof!
