Well done on the GSR Gillian. Did you enjoy it? I did, more than I expected!
I'm also looking for other races before the end of the year. Good luck with the cross country, 57.5. I feel a similar way to you, in that I don't like it really but the team aspect is fun (what team is it??).
That said, watching it on Sunday, it didn't really look like fun. No, perhaps 'fun' is a poor description.
I made it down to the Great Run Local on Wednesday. Nice midweek 5k.
Hi. Well, that's Southport 10k (windy, tougher than expected, slower than hoped) and the GSR 10k (great, enjoyed much more than expected, faster than hoped) done. I haven't got any more planned for the moment, although there's talk of cross country. Will probably make do with parkrun this weekend!
Hi Gillian, I haven't gone beyond a 10k for a while either. Still got a bit of plantar fasciitis, so I'm not feeling like pushing my luck with a longer race. That said, I've entered 2 10ks in 2 weeks, which I hope is not a stupid move: a 10k in Southport this weekend, and the GSR next week. Mixed feelings about GSR, but I usually enjoy these big events once I get into them.
