Smashed it Dean! Great running! I've been trying to find the results for the last hour to see how you got on. With the fast stuff in the summer I had a feeling that even though you weren't in specific 10k shape, you'd still go really well, especially on the back of some decent runs in the XC. Things looking really well for 2015! Top stuff!
Would you run without a watch next time or run to feel? I keep getting told to ditch my watch for races but I think I'd tend to coast when the going gets tough.
Well done Bus, still a decent outing after your recent injury woes. Any reoccurrence with them or was it pain free?
I've decided to scrap the rest of 2014 racing wise. The day after the 10k a couple of weeks ago I rolled the edge of my foot off a step at work and felt a sharp twinge. Thought nothing of it and rested it when the man flu hit. Any run I've done since has been in pain for the first couple of miles until it settles. Sometimes it feels like a burning sensation and others its sore to touch but no bruising or swelling?.
That said I've ran 60 miles this week with a couple of decent efforts on a treadmill to keep ticking over but it's not getting better and probably worse now than when it first happened and I think I'm heading down the road of busting it properly instead of giving it a proper rest. 'Ran' 13 miles on it this morning when it was at its worst. It eased again as I went but want to have a crack at the county champs in Jan and making it worse will kill that idea.
