Hi peeps *waves* Well i've done it (my first race that is) a 10k in 56.59 not too bad considering we were running into a headwind from mile 4 which got pretty cheeky by mile 5 as well.I finished strongly and if the truth was known i could have probs gone faster in the last 1/2 mile but i was worried about having enough energy left for the finish.Timing is something i need to work on i think but i will get there.my next race isn't till may and the pier to pier race (7.5 miles) then 10 days later i'm doing garburn eeeek What was i thinking of when i got the race number for that????? i have a few other races planned for a fter that as well.
i'm down south at the minute and i'm planning on running on the south downs tomo going out soon to do a 5 miler,it's a little damp down here tho

Jo no the kids have stayed at home that's the worst thing about it but my litle girl comes every friday till monday and hopefully when i move out of my mums both the girls will come to me i think my son will want to stay with his dad tho and at 15 he is entitled to amke up his own mind.My girls are 16 and 12 so the 16 year old won't be long in leaving home any way.
Is your son settling ok at pre-school now Jo?Keep up the good work with your running getting out regularly is the key that's why i joined a club for to force me out the door.
