Well there it is, EIGHT 10km races in 31 days. I finished off today with a time that would have been a PB but for last Sunday’s time, finishing in 64.01
The legs are sore, but there’s no rest for the wicked as I am back in the game this week with two more races during the week. The time today marks a heck of an achievement for me, not just in terms of finishing those eight races, but also in direct comparison to last year’s time. Last year I finished the same race in 80.39, so to knock over sixteen and a half minutes off my time is just awesome. My goal for the end of the year is to have a 10k time sub 6o min, and with my average times coming down, I’m more than confident of achieving this.
I also had the bonus of meeting a real Scottish and British Lions rugby legend, Scott Hastings. Running in the race himself, I nabbed a quick photo with him as he was doing some pre-race PR. A lovely guy who stopped to ask how we thought we would do in the race and have a bit of banter.
All in all, a pretty good day.
