Has anyone done this before?
Just wondered if it has any PB potential!
Sounds good to me, just printed out an entry form which says “NEW FAST COURSE!”.
Only dilema I have is a 10 mile legue race on Sunday morning. Will I have anything left in my legs for the Sunday morning?
Hi Go-KL Thanks for the info. Still trying to lower my PB for 5 miles as I have had a bit of form of late & think I might be able to do a bit better. I think if I wait till next year my form might have dipped. SO the way I see it is to chase it while you can - I ain't getting any younger!
Are you doing the John Fraser 10 on the Sunday? It is a good rural course (organised by my running club) - out for 3 miles then a 4 mile loop and then back (the way you went out) for the last 3 miles. It is undulating but the big turnout makes up for it. Last year there were just over 500 runners.
There were 16 runners under 60 minutes last year & Mark Powell beat the course record with 51.53! So it is possible so just go for it. I'm hoping to get around 63 minutes this year.
You can check last years results here (probably best to copy this into browser - just click & drag as it is long):
I am also tyring to crack sub 30 minutes for 5 miles hence the Coventry 5 miler on the Friday. Been pretty close recently, 30.36 @ Notts 5, 31.16 @ Wellinborough 5 & 30.40 on Wednesday @ Huncote Joy Can 5.
Think I need to up the milage & get some hill work under my belt as well as keeping up the speed work.
This will be fun on Friday evening, a nice warm up for Sunday's Wolverhampton HM or may go for ther FM yet ??
The park and course is exactly as Go - KL says
