bigwhite A great venue, well supported and the weather was good too. Was hoping for a better time; 3 miles in and I felt like walking. Legs felt so heavy and my chest was burning. Such is life. Enjoyed it all the same. Blackhill Bounders 43:04 43:04 43:28 69.70
blacknail chris Don't know whether to be happy or sad about this; took nearly 30 seconds or so off my recent fastest time (so technically a PB, given that this is my fastest official time for a 10k) but not enough to dip under 46 damn-it-all! And all for 4 bloody seconds! I feel I should have run the last 1.5k faster. The GN run visualisation thing suggests I was extremely consistently paced after about 2k, until which point I was running too slowly. Scratching my head on this one...

The good news is that I came 31st in my age and gender position. I keep forgetting that I'm old and then I get surprised when I can't keep up with club mates who are ten years my junior.

Stop press - the race winners said PBs were out of question because of the wind! Guess I'm used to it, living just a bit further up the coast. So maybe without the 'swirling' winds I would be under 46; or is this clutching at straws?

Good race though - I'll do it again next year. Now, where's the next one? North Shields Polytechnic AC 40:42 43:07 46:30 46:03 58.79

DuaneDibbley great day, great event - really enjoyed it. Only my second ever 10k and had hoped for an improvement on my first 10k but it there seemed to be more inclines on this race - wouldn't put me off doing it again next year though! Unaffiliated 42:25 46:08 50:00 47:58 56.71

Smellens PB however disappointed not to crack 49 mins, long walk yesterday may have played a part.  Good atmosphere with friendly runners.  Route undulating not flat as described.  Enjoyed the day and will be taking part next year. Blackhill Bounders 50:16 50:16 50:16 60.50
