update to my earlier post of 1st 10k race

Well I did it in a time 52:36 on what has to be the toughest course I have to date ever ran on. It started with 205ft climb that felt like it went on and on, then into wooded land, up goodness knows how many steps to a monument then back down. I run a tough park run which is more like a fell run, so it was good training for this.

I finished 56 out of a field of varying ages and ability of 91, so I am reasonably happy with it, but never have I ran such a challenging course, to put it into perspective a 15 lad won it in 35:40, what a future he should have in front of him!

And to think in November last year I couldn't run 800 yds without stopping for a walk.

Now for a Guinness oops

Keep going everyone, don't look back

Well done, Ian. I was dead chuffed at scraping under 60 minutes on a dead flat road course a few weeks ago - that is a fantastic time you've turned in there. Well done!
