Race Report Vitality London 10000m

Ok, not the best preparation to a race is running a 4:41 marathon on the Saturday 2 days before a fast and flat 10k....

Did an easy warm up after buying some throat sweets as my throat had gone from the cheering on Sat... legs weere a tad heavy and so I said to my self and to Mr Parkrun Mr Paul SH on the start line that 42:30 would be good....

Mile 1 - 6:43, very congested and no space, and flat as is nothing there and being passed a lot didnt help.

Mile 2 - 6:31 Thought I was having garmin issues, as was still being overtaken and didnt feel like 6:31...

Mile 3 - 6:31 Okay so maybe its not the garmin (milli seconds quicker) the overtaking has stopped and I am strting to take a few myself inc 1 club lady

Mile 4 - 6:29 Its not the garmin, as I am feeling stronger (however garmin does register long on this course) 20:53 for 5k (3.18m)

Mile 5 - 6:25 afterburners are on and loving it, no effects from Saturday now and fully up to race pace, take another club mate and looking forwards to seeing Nelsons Coloum again

Mile 6 - 6:22 Oh yes, I like this, as we speed down HorseGurads and Birdcage walk (would love to run that fast at the end of the VLM)

.35m - 2.12 Last bit and round the corner to finish in front of the Queens Residence

Chuffed to have delivered a 41:15 on the garmin (the extra .14 will be a garmin issue with buildings etc) Happy

Take care

Great day at KRR Marathon, going the wrong way round 21 laps cheering peeps on, totally awesome day and then the organisers treated me to an upside down bespoke medal about 4:40 but well off the racing line and 27:4m but fun was had... a tad tired and sore throat and hands

Take care

Well done yesterday Emzap and even better today with the PB, well done

Don, well done on the 7m, that's a good increase in entrants.

Weight is the bain of my life, need to lose more to get quicker, but my main issue is stress, when stressed I eat more.... need to learn....

double run day for me today, 8m very easy this morning (8:58mm) and then 6m progressive tonight at 7.38mm

Take care

Naughty boy Ale

Well done OH

Parkrun this morning at Andover, not the best for me, but the conditions were not great, 10/300 an attendance record at Andover, plus I was first V45 20:38.

plus 2 x 1.75m in the guise of a warm up and cool down.

Been working most the day, but have been able to watch / listen to the cricket as I did..

Take care all
