Just looked at GG results - well done to OMOC for being first SHAC runner home, and to BB for nearly winning v50 despite being at the wrong end of that age category. And Jayne for winning ladies race. Good performances all round too.
My Trafford time was 37:30. That's 2+ minutes down on the last time I ran this race, but what I expected on around 25 mpw. The v50 winner ran a ridiculous 31:30 (but was only 40th overall), giving RB something to think about.
Thought I'd pop in here, not posted anything for ages.
Good to see there is still some racing going on, and the same excuses resurfacing.
My miles per week are less than most your long runs, and have been for 12 months. I am enjoying being a fitness runner and not feeling pressured to do a run because my schedule says I need to, or I feel guilty if I don't. I guess I could get close to sub 18 at 5k at a push, but distances above that I would have no chance - although I am giving Trafford 10k a go.
My long run is now on Saturday, involving a jog to a Parkrun, Parkrun and jog home .
NI, if you want to join me for that you are welcome. Probably South Manchester because I pace someone from work, then run home on the path towards Debdale Park and then to Heaton Moor.
