tick follows tock
felt good pleased to end the year with a 34 min 10k looking forward to training for london 2012 and seeing what I can take off my pb's in 2012
NOT BLOODY GOOD ENOUGH
Big push for sub 40
To say I am happy is an understatement
nice run with Josh in his first 10K
Not happy with this time. I got myself as far up as possible but got caught in the crowd and there were a lot of runners who should have been starting further back, judging by their race numbers - it always annoys me when people do that. So I had a fair amount of weaving around people for the first little bit. I hadn't done the speed training that I intended to so I guess I didn't deserve a fast time really. Was hoping for at least a PB though. I need to stop avoiding speed work sessions!
Well organised and friendly race. Pretty pleased with the time. I should try to do some speedwork.
no idea how this will go but I PB'd here last year when I thought it was a tough ask, so hoping for similar this year.
Happy with a season's best, sorry to those who lost points!
PB by 2 seconds!!

Running from Birmingham back to Leeds to do this (180 miles, off road over 6 days), in memory of Colin Morath, who founded the race and was race director till a year of so ago. So won't be in any fit state to 'race' it. see my blog www.runningbacktoleedsforcolin.wordpress.com
Brrrr! Cold and foggy run but, despite a few niggles in my left shin and a dull ache in the front of my right ankle, managed to maintain a pretty steady pace and get a PB.
Having trained for only three weeks (from walking).
8pm Saturday night, glass of ginger wine in hand, I text Steve to ask if he still had a spare race number for tomorrow. The answer was yes (3 of them!) so I crawled out of bed on a foggy Sunday morning to run the Abbey Dash. Arrived at Park Square, club photo, few laps of the square to warm up (decided conditions were actually pretty run-friendly despite visability (you really don't want to see the miles of Kirkstall Road stretching into the distance anyway!). Headed to the starting pens (what a joke- no one appears to stand in their designated starting time pen!) with several club mates (Chris E, Nick, Alex, Tom, Rob).
Start gun went at 9.30 and we were off at pace. I had decided I would go fast from the start as a change for my normal steady start and warm up into the race... This wasn't a race strategy, mearly a last-minute-standing-in-pens- with-fast-guys-from-club affair! So first 2km was fast, goldfish impression running! Rob was on my shoulder and commented at km1 that we were on for a 39min finish at that pace and that he wasn't sure he could maintain it! I agreed but wanted to continue with the pace for as long as I could maintain it! As it turned out, that was about 5-6km. After that I began pretty knackered and not too great. My pace slowed and lots of people overtook me (including Rob who I could continue to see about 20m ahead). I was very grateful to see the finish line after a pretty unpleasant last 4km (and even more relieved not to vomit on the finish timing mats). it is a fast but unrelenting course and I was longing for hills for a change of pace and some recovery of sorts! All I could think was 'give me 3x the distance and some big hills over this torture any day!'
My time was 44:14 which is a pb but I am dissapointed with it. I thought I'd got significantly faster than last year from an increase in millage/effort, but I think I would need to do some more speed sessions to improve significantly. I did feel slightly better at realising I was 144th women out of over 2500, but I wanted a 43:?? time really.
So the Abbey Dash is still as painful and 'orrible as I remember. I am pleased I tried a new strategy even if it didn't pay off and I crashed in the 2nd half. At least I know what to concentrate on for next race. It also made me realise that racing is good- I don't generally enjoy racing (until afterwards anyway!) but it is good experience and the only way to improve racing performance really is to race. I also realised that I really don't enjoy short, flat road racing (too painful!) and rather the challenges, adventure and unknown of off-road and fell. Unfortunate then that the next scheduled race is the v flat Brass Monkey! At least its longer!
Nice race 8000 people out and back from the town hall to kirkstall abbey. Nice to run with Jane and Neil and Ally
My first ever race and still my 10k Personal Best
