First sub-hour 10k

First sub-hour 10k

Managed both my first sub-30min 5k (29:25) and first sub-hour 10k (59:08) at the Percy Pud 10k in Sheffield yesterday!! To say I'm delighted would be a slight understatement as this is such a long way from where I started back in April :-)

The support and guidance of both the Couch25k and Bridge210k forums have been invaluable and I can't thank you guys enough!

As you can see in the photo I was promoting Couch25K with my graduate t-shirt :-)

Love the beard! What a fab idea. Well done on your time!!!!!

I was in Sheff yesterday. I'd not heard about the race. Sorry I missed it. Would have liked to have done it.

Is that the one that goes out towards Loxley. The hilly one?

Yes that's the one, although to anyone from Sheffield, it's about as flat as you can get :-)

When the mature lady runners from there pitch up to races I know I'm doomed. Ha ha

Well done! I did the Percy Pud on Sunday too and it was one of my favourite races of the year. I think the free milk at the end was a nice bonus too!
