PB - bloody wind in tha last 1.75 miles, otherwis I'd have been maybe a minute faster ???
Alex B
Trying to break 75mins this year.

Pleased with a little PB. 15 secs outside 75mins due to a nice force 6 headwind for the last 2 miles! Nice day though and it was sunny and dry, so can't complain too much.
WineRunner52
Good Run - despite last two miles into head wind.
Scooby Dave
Might beat Hendo this time. Might beat Hendo!
Athlete In Progress
Should have good endurance after all the marathon training and will be working on my speed training this summer so hoping to make this my fastest ever 10 Miler!

Well with the help of SharonD managed to run 1:36:10, she was a fantastic help keeping me to 9 Min miles near to the second the first few miles and on the last three miles keeping me going as I was suffering.

After suffering from a cold which put me out of the Cabbage Patch 10, I was determined to race the Bupa Great South Run although only 90% recovered. I would of more likely been in the 1:40's had it not been for Sharon.

It's amazing from just having a cold/flu how long it takes to get back to 100% fit. Really struggled with getting enough oxygen in the lungs to keep going towards the finish.

Although not managing my prediction, very happy considering my PB for this race was 1:59:25 and my fastest 10 mile to date had been 1:50:57.
Really feel like changing my prediction for you guy's who bet on me but probably not appropiate! LOL!

Therefore a PB of 24 mins for this race is fabulous and a PB for 10 mile race of 14 Mins+.

V.Happy!
TomM
A bit disappointed with the time. Congenstion in the first 2 miles, then went to fast to make up the time in miles 3-4. As a result, I was struggling by mile 6. Note to self. Next time stick to race plan.
FaeryImp
Not expecting anything.Hoping to just get round as have not done much run based training,but quite a bit cross training.Will be happy to run all the way this time..hoping hamstring stays together!!
oiyou
ran with jacky. Jack had to walk last mile but ran final 400m. No chance of training for this run, too much time in hospice, Sue died and too many bad things after. Did it tho and although slowest, prob my proudest achievment in the running world.
monkey harris
had a cold,slow 1...............
Pompey Paul
Ran with OH as it was here first race EVER!
Mr. K.
Managed to be just under the hour mark at mile 8.....then came the head wind. Did enjoy fish and chips on the beach. :-)
-Monty-
have pulled out so will not be running.
Hendo
Will just be trotting around this year, sadly.
dave the flower
first time for me here - pleased with the time following a 2 week virus. Last 2 miles were tough in that wind
Disco Dave
Hoping to beat last years time again and all being well I will have my Garmin charged up fully so I know what pace I am doing!!
Slimster
3rd time lucky, after Mara this year + focused speed work this summer I'm itching for the sub 70..
aitchmac
At last great South with no rain, but still a bit windy. Glad to complete considering hamstring injury 3 weeks ago. Great crowds this year, but meant crowding at several points which meant getting blocked in at some points, so could have been faster.
Ramfan
Fab race, started quite fast running just over 8 minute miles for the first 6 miles but slowed down after especially into the strong headwind for the last two miles along the promenard.
Crazy Grazy
Looks like they botched my registration as I at the back, so lost about 2 mins getting through the crowd.
Beejay
See Blog, when i eventually get around to it!!!
Lizzybagwash
This will be the third time for this hope this time I will achieve a good time
Richie B
Includes an unscheduled pee break. I'm calling it 1.33.22 :-)
Blisters and gale force winds conspired against me
MrMarcus
2nd high profile race in a few weeks, looking forward to a quick time. Prediction is very rough estimate, lookng to get close to an hour by then....running this 1 with brands not gonna be as quick as 1st predicted but should still be a pb. Pleased to get an unofficial 5 mile pb in this as well
Derbyplodder
Fine up to mile 8 then bugger all in the tank.
AndrewJ
That was tough at the end - was a bit off par - have been really tired the last few weeks. Set off on target for my 1:18 - was OK up to about 7 then tiredness hit me - the last 2 miles especially the windy bit was hard. Happy its over - do wonder why I come back for more of that wind ....
Sinj
Was very windy and I got over confident and went off WAY TOO FAST for me. Haven't worked it out but will definitely be my fastest ever 10k!!! Gutted really.
dollydaydream
Have entered band 120 - 140 mins - if training goes well hope to beat this!

I know I need a goal or I won't bother to run so this is it. Did GNR last year so going south this time. have 6 months to get myself to 10 miles - managable I hope.

This new personal worst was expected. I got a free massage beforehand in the BUPA tent, which helped. It's never been dry and sunny when I've done this before, and Batman and Robin and the bloke (or woman) dressed in the pink bunny suit must have been really hot. We seemed to run against the wind in both directions though, and the last two miles along the seafront felt expectedly hard. I like the camaraderie of runners - everyone's got a story. Changing trains on the way back had roast lunch in a funny old pub with a fat bloke in a tee shirt that read 'Beer Disposal Facility' and a woman came in with two cages with an owl in each.

Last 2 miles were hard with the wind.

Too windy, for the fourth straight year. This race is turning from frustrating into boring because of the unfortunate weather...

Been struggling with short training runs so I have no great expectations of this one, especially if its windy.

Not so sure about DNF, it was DNS!

Hot-ish, sunny and windy.

Lovely weather brought out the crowds so a lot more congested than last year. Knee gave in at mile 7 and I thought it was over but limped on and by mile 8 it recovered enough for to run normally, A strong wind at mile 8 proved tough to run into therefore target time out the window but glad I beat last years and I didn't walk once. Don't think I'll do this race again.

Was meant to do this last year but deferred as was expecting. This will be my first long race back so really don't know what to expect. Just want to get the t-shirt and enjoy the weekend away with the OH and LO in Pompey.

Not a PB day for me - too many people to dodge and a headwind for the last two miles and the fact that I've been a bit off colour for the last days perhaps didn't help. Still, all in all a good result especially because I helped raise £430 for MS!

Anything better than a 10 m/m will be great.

I could have been 1:37 or less if I hadn't turned back to support Dee who was struggling in the last 2 miles. I ran back to join her twice, losing valuable seconds. I ran on at her (generous) insistence so I could make my target pace.

Last 2 miles were a killer!

Beautiful morning for the GSR in Andover, nice cool breeze, jumps in car drives 50m to Portsmouth, park up ope nthe door and nearly lose it to the slight wind that is blowing.... ok call it a hooley, it was blowing one big style.... In the sun it was very warm, aim was 63 and then try and push for the PB of 62:46..... in the last few miles, this was reconsidered straight away to read happy with 65....

so after a nice warm up it was into the mix.

1m - 6:11 and plenty of protection but dodging loadsa slower runners.
2m - 6:09 oh this is nice, hard but do-able...
3m - 6:07 still in comfort zone and moving up nicely
4m - 6:14 starting to feel the wind here hit 5k in 19:19, that used to be my PB till just over a year ago....
5m - 6:25 windy here but half way in 31:07 and on for a PB, but know the last 2m is in to the wind, but my legs are tired for a reason I do not now...
6m - 6:27 did I set of too fast, if I did then everyone else did as we all seem to start struglling with the swirling wind, even though slowing and holding my position well enough.
7m - 6:32 Through 10 k in 39:xx happy with that the rest is the same as mile 6...
8m - 6:31 the wind is meant to be behind us but still cannot find any pace, nor can anyone else so it seems
9m - 6:50 Into the wind the dreaded last 2 miles down the sea front, and it didnt dissapoint, hard work
10m - 6:50 dammed hard work grafting against the wind and the clock to beat 65, its going to be close.... even more so as mr garmin is out and I have it on laps, hit 10m and still a last sprint is required..
.08m - 30s try to sprint in and see the gun time as 1:04:53... watch says 1:04 :50.

So cracked the 65 for only the second time, but 2 mis away from a PB... overall very happy.

Met up with a few fetchies too and cleared off quick to beat the traffic......

00:28:36 00:56:57 01:26:32 (every 5K)

If it wasn't for that sea front breeze may have ran under 1:32!

Felt at the end of the race I could have done it quicker but got stuck behind lots of slower runners who where out of position.
