Wrap Up And Run Sheffield 10K

Posted: 25/02/2013 at 16:17

Overall a really well organised race and a great location.  Events team very enthusiastic and helpful.  Word of advice to the Events Team - and to anyone looking to do this next year - it is very hilly - the first hill is short but brutal!! - don't describe this as "flat".  I struggled to get any rythm in my running and ended up way outside my best road time.  Also, as mentioned above - it's a bit more than 100m on grass!.  It's not a pb course by any stretch - add at least a couple of minutes on to your road time and use it as a hard training run.  Running Eye - I also got 6.09 mile on my Garmin.

Wonder if Runners World will be promoting the film?...I watched the trailer just prior to running my first marathon a few weeks ago and must admit to finding it very inspirational....(more so than "run fat boy run"!!)

There is a trailer on the internet for an american movie called "spirit of the marathon" based on five people training and taking part in the Chicago Marathon...does anyone know if this film is to be released in the UK?

half marathon race plan

Posted: 18/09/2006 at 14:32
My plan has always been to treat each mile as a sub race within a race. Ive never been good enough to be challenging any where near at the front but I managed to get my time down from 1:37 to 1:26 in the space of a year by adopting this approach. I simply took splits at each mile point (as lots of people do) and then adjusted my pace for the next mile accordingly. So I always set myself a target prior to the race for each mile (say 6min 35 secs). If I ran 6:45 for a mile I would encourage myself to step up the pace for the next mile to pull back the time...treating it a mile at a time meant the run was less daunting...worked for me but everyone is different I suppose. Which half marathon is it you are doing?

Thanks. I'm based in South Yorkshire. Any advice on which clubs to try would be appreciated.

I've been running on my own for about a year but would like to join a club as my motivation is quite low at the moment. I have a 1/2 marathon best of 1:28 but am a bit worried that I will be left trailing if I turn up on a club night....the clubs I have spoken with so far have given the impression that they don't cater for beginners......do clubs only cater for advanced runners???

Redcar Half

Agree that the wind made for a v tough run...but am pretty chuffed at a new 1.27 pb....very well organised/marshalled race...will definitely be back next year.
