Hi guys, did the Bristol 10k yesterday and again surprised to see my times improving, although not a PB for me, i did 49 about 4 years ago, however i had got up to a 54 last year, but did a 52.36 in Feb and did a 51.17 yesterday, so very very pleased with myself. All this cross training, squats, kettle bells and step classes is paying off, ive not done as much mileage but getting better times Goal to do a sub 50 for 10k this year.
I have to agree with Caroline on the Longleat, its a b**ch of a race, and to be honest if it wasnt for meeting the very lovely Gatton, i would not be doing it, but Daz being the fine athlete that you are, it would be a doddle to you mate
Did a small 3 miler on tues, and although legs felt a tad heavy, the run was ok. Going out tomorrow for another small run, but would like to go slightly longer 5/6 on sunday.
That is a fantastic time Daz, see your still in the 'Superman' bracket lol, am in awe !!!well done you Thats the best thing about the early start isnt it, that its all done and dusted before noon and you have the rest of the day to enjoy, we were home in Bath by 1.15 !!
Enjoying a glass of vino myself now, helps with the stiff legs so im told
Heres to the our next goals, whatever they maybe !!!!
Wow what a great race Daz, was very impressed with the new course, fast and flat, well apart from a few little inclines. Love running down into the Bay, its just so beautiful, like last year i just wanted to stop and stare for a while. Although, it was a bit of a bugger to know that unlike last year, when we got to that section we had done 12 miles, this year it was just 5. I had a good race really, i planned and prayed i could hold a 9 min mile run, coming in at 1.56/ 1.57. But was running 8.30 so i was up on my time by 4 mins half way around. Then inevitably i tired so lost most of that at the end, but finished in 1.55, so really am quite chuffed with that. Maybe all that walking did help !!! Hope you managed ok
