A good few weeks off following a brief stay at my local NHS establishment, I didn't think a slight improvement was possible. A gloriously sunny day and very well organised; still chasing the 'sub 50' mark - one day.
AFTER: Well time wasn't as hoped, but pleased to be sub-50 and lots faster than last year. Could do with some more speedwork and a bit more time to get fully back from injury. Good run though, pushed it the whole way, legs burning. Cold sunny skies, little wind, conditions were perfect.
BEFORE: Hoping to celebrate return from injury. Training has been up and down so no idea whether I'll be even close to 48.19, but will give it a go, would be a new PB. One year since I started running again after a few years break, so if all else fails i'll try to beat my 54 something from last year's race.
Chuffed with the time given the interrupted buildup. Lovely weather, great great great race, Sam did the fun run in 7:20.
4 days before the race I picked up a hamstring injury and my hopes of getting a sub 45 seemed dashed.
During the warm up I could really feel the injury and was hoping to get round in one piece, so think how shocked I was when I finished in a PB of 42:47. Nearly 5 minutes off my time at last years event.
First attempt at a 10K - just glad to get round!
I will be happy with around 51 mins for this, and a decently paced race...with a digital watch!!!!So there slow going.
Update: well i guess the reverse psychology worked then. I sneaked my first ever sub 50! Felt fantastic up to 6.5k, then it all got quite tough. Remembered mrb saying "dig deep" and pushed myself to keep the pace going til the end. V, v happy. My favourite 10k!
Not racing, just used as a training run. Had to slow to walk at one stage due to health probs. Average heart rate 135, max 156.
