    what : Leeds Abbey Dash 10 km.
    why : race day
    last hard : today
    last rest : yesterday

    First ever sub 50m. 49m39s. Extremely happy. Took 3 mins off my last 10k race. This must be due to joining a club and trying to keep to marathon schedule (now on week 5). Life is good.
  • Hurray hurray, I am in post-race euphoria and the world is a Good Place!

    Completely surpassed my expectations of a sub 47 and did 45.19, took nearly 3 mins off my 10K PB and came first in my v category (that's V35, I'm not that old!) winning a crystal arrangement that I will always treasure, hideous though it is.

    Well done paul and Godzilla on your pb.s it must have been a good day for forum races.

    Right, I'm off to find a race calculator - surely 1.45 is within the realms of possiblity now at Helsby.

    Will put race report on Events.
  • Hi runners,

    Arghhhhhh, going mad, need to run,

    Last run: 6 mile easy, friday,

    Got pain in left ankle for 2 weeks now, its not getting any worse but I am having to cut down on running, which is doing my head in........
  • Well done Laura - that's brilliant! Also to Paul and Godzilla for their PB's.

    What: easy 2 miles
    Why: recovery run so just jogged home from work
    Last hard: yesterday
    Last rest: Mon
  • Laura - that's a fantastic result, I'm so pleased for you. you really deserve your crystal arrangement after all the work you've put in.

    What: Rest
    Why: Frank says so, and failing anatomy agrees.
  • Hello all.

    What: About 12K - 6 laps of my village to test out the iffy knees. Fantastic. Feel I'm well on the mend. But WHY don't I ever get abuse/witty comments? I must be living in the Fen Stepford.
    Why: See above.
    Hard: Well.... that probably doesn't quite qualify, so... ages ago.
    Rest: Yesterday.

    Well done all the PB-ers, and well done the non-PB-ers too. :-)

    Laura, I would be very surprised if you didn't beath 1:45 at Helsby. 1:40 is probably a more realistic goal.

    What: 10k Leeds Abbey Dash in 36:43(see race report)
    Why: fast training run at end of easy week
    Last rest day: yesterday
    Last hard day: Today
  • Well done all you racers.

    What: 16M long run in the wind & the rain. I felt good & enjoyed it though

    Last Hard: Kent League XC yesterday which went very well posible top 30/35 so I'm in a positive mood!

    Rest: Fri
  • Well done, Laura!! :)
  • CONGRATS everyone who raced, sounds like some fantastic results were had this weekend.

    What: nowt
    Why: nursing the mother of all hangovers as a consequence of meeting up with an old mate from university that I've not seen since '99.
    Last hard run: Thank the lord I got my 18 miler in yesterday, no chance of mustering enough energy to do anything except break-wind today!
    Last rest day: Does today count, I feel like my liver has been doing the equivalent to an ultramarathon since the festivities started late afternoon yesterday.
  • Feel on top of the world!

    What:'Full Monty' 10 miles TOUGH offroad race. 8 tough hills with miles 7 & 8 impossible to run. Finished 6th lady and we won the mixed team- cider & wine! Finish time was 1hr 30mins, but on that kind of terrain (pure mud bath)times are not important.
  • LizzyBLizzyB ✭✭✭
    WEll done Laura, Hilly and everyone else on your pbs and prizes.

    Can''t say any more as have hurt hand asnd can't type!

    wot: 7 miles wiv efforts (done it already)

  • Still nothing
  • well done laura hilly and paul it was a good day to be running in the drizzle...
  • 10k, sort of multi terrain, PW
    Got muddy though
  • Well done Benz, sounds like a real toughie (had a peek on Events), don't worry about your time - sounds like this wasn't going to be quick for anyone. Be proud!

    I've come back down to earth now and feel crystal thingy may turn into xmas pressie for unsuspecting relative! Or I'll swap hilly for her cider.
  • Crystals are nice
    Thanks Laura
