Dreadful! Was pacing myself to sneak under 53:00 and two of The Girls tagged along. I took at stitch between 4 and 5K and had to walk jog 'til after 7K. Was going to pull out but remembered how pleased I would have been to get that time only a few months back. The other two girls got their 52:xx so well done them. Thanks Guiseppe, for the cheer at the end. And nice to see Magoo again. UPDATE: a chicken biryani, packet of jaffa cakes and half a bottle of wine, and I've forgotten about it already. Roll on the Turkey Trot!
Not too bad a course, out & back, few to many twist & turns, but the long straights made up for that. Still managed a pb by a minute, & the Killie girls got the team prize!
Hugh Wilson Memorial 10K.
only my 2nd 10k, was hoping for sub 55 but was not to be.... route was bit grim and was bit scared to see it was full of club runners so thoght i'd be last but hey ho i wasn't and got a PB of 56.17.
Marshalls friendly and encouraging, well done.no medal, or anything, bit disapointing, doubt i;ll do this again
only been running for 6 months so i should be happy with that , onwards and upwards..
UPDATE - OFFICIAL TIME PUTS ME UNDER 45 MIN - YIPPPPEEEE!!!!!
Arse! Had been hoping to get sub 45, but was not to be - was a fairly last minute decision to enter and had various niggles. Was nice, mostly flattish run, though not the brilliantest of courses - the narrow pavement sections made overtaking quite difficult (as if!), especially the out-and-back section where we were all just plodding along in a line. Plenty support from marshals, people hooting in cars and bewildered grannies on their way back from Debenhams!
Was undecided whether to do this or not up until this morning and so hadn't really prepared yesterday for it. Hence pizza and beer and a 9 mile training run took its toll!!
Course was diificult due to twists and turns and underpasses but it was ok....not the most scenic I have done but will return again next year as in some strange way I enjoyed it. Finished 13th and won 2nd vet prize. Nice to see eyespy and well done.
Different course than before. This time a straight out and back again, startining and finishing with a lap of the track.
PW shouldn't have raced, full of a chest infection + antibiotics
