I am doing this in September, and everyone seems to mention it is flat and fast.
As I am simply trying to beat 60 minutes for the first time, I fear I might make a bit of fool of myself if everyone else finishes in like 40 minutes.
Anyone any experience of this event in the last couple of years?
Not to bad then alan, i am at around 61 mins now with 7 weeks training to go.
Thanks Alan, I am new to running (aged 43) and started on the 2/1/13 to lose weight. Lost 2 1/2 stone and was running at 62.54 for 10km. When I started i was running 300 metres and then returning home with cramp in my shins !!!
Did the Manchester 10km and it was roasting (nothing compared to this week though) and did it in 69 mins. I was dissapointed but the heat got to me.
I am doing a LSR of 13, but this week dropped back to 11 again to push on to 14, then will drop to 12 and push on again. My second run is interval running over 5km and my third run in building up from 5km and currently at 8km.
Hopefully should be under 60 minutes.
I am doing Salford to prove to my family and friends that my Manchester 10km was as a result of the weather. I want sub 59 mins, but sub 60 will make me happy.
don't matter if you do finish last, the people who are really last are the ones who are at home on the sofa.
Agree 100 % with that Lee
