Evening! Very appropriate reading peoples views on 10ks, Sunday's 10k was definitely a race of 2 sections though not halves. 4k out with a tailwind, hairpin turn on the riverbank, 4k back into the wind and then a twisty undulating section through a park. A minute or so quicker than last year as was mrs P so very pleased.
Top trophy Angela, though I really cant make up my mind between the two! Your sentence about bed does rather read as if you go to bed after every lunch
Im starting my Chester plan with a bit of structure, last night was medium long run, 7 miles in that intense heat, quite hard work but I just backed off whenever it became too much.
Big walk tomorrow, taking a day off work to walk over Crib Goch to Snowdon with a colleague, looks like it is going to be a great day for it.
If you get something that's not an out and out off road/fell shoe you'll be fine. I happily did a road marathon in a pair of Asics attack trail shoes. You'll benefit from the extra grip even on short grass and dry trails and you probably won't notice any difference on the road section.
We were just driving back from a race, two miles from our house, on a really bad double bend that I treat with extreme caution and as a result was able to avoid a woman running on the inside of the bend (into the oncoming traffic fair enough but invisible to it) with two dogs on a lead and headphones in.
