A minute off my PB - I'm well chuffed. I think the combo of cool weather, PB bets being placed on me & using the virtual trainer on the Garmin helped me with the PB plus being a vet in 10days time spurred me on to beat the 45min mark. Great course (flat), well marshalled & good quality field (lots of club runners) made for an enjoyable race experience. Well done the Woodley Scouts.
I did this last year in about 47.44....hope to beat that...have had a cold this week so a PB is doubtful.....Over the moon,didn't expect this today,shows what a bit of race day adrenalin can do.Cool conditions nicely organised,marshalls supportive and a PB ,great day
Wtg official time.Official time 44.28....117th / 588
For the first ever, I had to stop during a race for a wee!! Hopefully, I was far enough in the bushes that no-one saw me! At the start of the race I thought it would be a good idea to try and keep up with this chap and his dog Zola Budd (it's true that's her name) as I knew they could run a 10k in less than 50 minutes. However as soon as Zola heard the horn, she was off like a bullet and I never saw them again. Nice race, very well organised and the weather was perfect! One day soon I'll break the 50 minute mark but in order to do so I'll need to run more between races or get a dog called Zola Budd to run with!
not been able to get out much at all lately, so may just treat as bit of fun...
update: glad I turned up. weather perfect, nice atmosphere. some narrow pavements and traffic on course, but good fun. Happy with time, given lack of training, so now can concentrate on next 10k and actually prepare!
Was wondering whether to give this a miss as I felt a bit under the weather - either hayfever or a cold, not sure which - but went for it and really enjoyed it. Felt surprisingly strong all the way round. A nice course, well marshalled and a good atmosphere. I would definitely do it again.
Garmin time, Gun time was 49.45. Beat my pb for 10K by a long way so either I'm fitter (hope so) or this was an easier course (no way). Very pleased, great organisation and lovely cup of tea at the end.
