Bolsover 10k, plan was to try and really race it. Ran with no watch, plan was slightly hampered by me being dropped off leading 2 after 500m as they went off quick. Felt quite strong for rest of race struggled with concentration as running on my own, good day for running cold with little wind. Would like to have broken 32. Good sociable race with Paul and Mike racing aswell. looking forward to some cross country now.
run around damflask with Rob, niether of us very keen this morning. Both suffering from too much pre-Christmas socialising. Biggest excitement came when a large puddle stopped us in our tracks. Rob braved the puddle first, I crossed the puddle once i new it was safe.
Wanted to squeeze something in a bit faster before 10k at the weekend. Stopped off at work near Endcliffe Park and did reps down Rustlings Road. 8 reps down Rustlings Road with 1 min recovery. Have not session down here for a couple of years. First did this session in 1996!, was bloody quicker then too. Felt ok though and avoided the rain so all good.
Beautiful ,but very cold morning . Finally succumbed to tights, 2 tops and a hat . Still cold in the moonlight and wind up Ringinlow. Very tired this morning need a few easier days before Bolsover on Sunday.
was going to do a fart lek on way to work, but realised way to dark and wet under foot to manage more than a brisk commute.Not sure what I expected in december at 0645. hard going off road as could not see a thing , ok once I got onto the road.
