Parky, yes that first mile was way too fast!

Long Legs, this does seem to recur now and then, up till now only in training though, have you posted on the injuries forum about this before?

I just knew then it was going to be a struggle and boy was it! Hope to bump into you at another one soon

Parky, yes hope so, with any luck more time to chat next time also. I guess you are mainly in Mid/South Essex area for running? Whereas we are usually in Suffolk.

I cant remember if you are in a club or not, but we are running all the Intersport XC Essex League races that start next week, will you be in these?

I've just started going to Springfield Striders, and have started contemplating X-country so maybe!
Next week I may be doing the Mersea Island, or I may be supporting Deborah (the girl with dogs at the race at the end of the race) as she competes with our horse in dressage next week.

Well good luck to yourself and Deborah whatever you decide to do next week, and we will possibly see you at one of the XC runs soon then

It's hard to pull out before completing a race - as I found out last week at Martlesham. BUT - it is the smart thing to do.

You know when your body needs to stop and it would be unwise not to listen to it. I know it won't make you feel any better but there are plenty of races out there and being smart by pulling out ensures that your pain will not last any longer than it should do.

There are an unlimited number of races but we only have one body - so we have to make it last!

Hi Guys,

Justs logged on to read the write ups. Good to met up again with some of you.

Sorry how things went LL. I know its easy to say that 'some days things just don't go right', but it is the case. I'm still in the great position of doing few enough runs that I keep breaking PBs as I get fitter. I know it won't always be like that so I'm anjoying it while I can. Also, my leg gremlins (ie hamstrings, calves and sore toes) have only struck during training runs. I guess I'm due a race breakdown at some stage, hopefully it won't be too serious when it does happen. I'm shore that Stowmarket will be better for you.

Well done to all of you with the PBs. Very satisfying race. If the organisers read this, then thanks for putting it on - one of the most professional local races I've been in.

Glad it wasn't just me that did a rediculously fast first mile. Don't know why I bothered spending so long before the race telling myself to start easy and do even splits! Also, That hill towards the top of the course was a killer, it nearly got methe second lap - don't know if it would hae been easier if I hadn't started so fast. Maybe its best on those sorts of course to just make hay while the sun shines - go fast when you can and grind it out when you can't!

Thanks for the words of encouragememt guys. Hope to see you in a couple of weeks. I definately predict a 7m PB!!!!

Hello fellow Tiptree 10 runners
I just wanted to echo some of the sentiments previously mentioned and thank Tiptree Road Runners for an excellently organised event.I'm not a regular runner anymore but I think I'm getting a second wind , having done it when I was a lad.I'm thinking about doing the Billericay event on November 3 , what can I expect ? after doing that hill twice yesterday I'd prfer a flatter course.Essex boys don't like hills!

Hi all Tiptree runners,

Good to meet up with all the forumites, the run seems to have been generally well received. Still on a bit of a high having taken almost 5 mins off my PB despite going too fast at the start like everyone else.

Parky - I think you were the guy at Striders training last Thurs saying you'd just done 2:56 for the Berlin marathon? Recognised you sprinting with the dogs before the start!

Have now exchanged balmy Essex for the bleak North Sea (100 NE of Shetland) - transiting through the sleet and snow of Aberdeen @ 5.30am this morning!! Treadmill and no beer for the next week. Ho-hum.
