sore foot .
FAB day, a PB was a bonus for me (and expected, since I knew my old mile time was soft!)
1st PB of the year (had to be as 1st mile race)
8 laps is a lot when you are only doing a mile
Beat my target so happy with that, but should have pushed on in lap 9 where I lost a couple of places that I did not real back in on the sprint (but it was close)
Race NO: 559
Garmin time 5:46
Official Time 5:45
Somewhat not at peak fitness so equalling my PB was pleaseing
Merry Christmas & Happy New G(rrr)
Ow! That was hard going! Great fun event and well done everyone. Plsd and surprised with a PB. Limpet did all the hard work though! Many thanks to Homer, Cheshire Lady and all the helper fetchies that made this such a great event! :-)G
this'll be my first race in over a year - can't wait!
Thanks to Homer and everyone who helped organise and run the event. Well done to everyone who ran especially the kids..
Never raced a measured mile - never run indoors - anything could happen
First proper timed mile - and at a proper venue with loads of Fetchies (and Lord Fetch!).
A few less than expected due to the snow and ice though.
Targetted 6min 30s but recorded a very consistent 5min 56s (8 laps at 45s-ish).
Also did 200m in 28.78 and 60m in 7.59 (both TBC) - so a good day out (well inside at Sportcity)!
may have been 9 laps of the track = 1800m
my dream is to get a pb of sub 6:50, but not much sprint training in last few weeks , and other excuses-
VERDICT- wow surprise a PB great, the support was IMMENSE, and must have given me the 10seconds off my predicted thanks, maybe with some proper training , maybe better ?
Well done Homer and Cheshire Lady and everyone else who made this a fantastic day!
