Met up with Running Rodent, Scott The Walker , Pottermoss, Radar Sal, ThisisNatty, Nells and HIAHS plus a few wags and habs in tow at the Bupa 10k. There was beer involved and sitting around in the park. I took a crate of Ice Cold Carlsbergs and managed to leave them at bag check. They retained their coldness! The organisers put on a sprint track and sprint coaches for the kids and my two took part in that and burned off some energy. It's been a lovely afternoon and I'm just leaving the west end now with the missis at the wheel.
Prior to all this frivolity there was some quality running from the gang and some healthy pb bashing. I knocked a minute off my 10k to give me a 38.17 with a 1 second neggy split and an outside chance of a place in the Highgate Harriers night of the 10k PBs (next year) - sub 38.30 was a platinum target so I'm well happy to exceed that. Was one of those days where everyone else around me was huffing and puffing. I'm glad I didnt overcook it at Parkrun the other day. That's my 3 A races nailed this year exactly as I wanted 'em.
