Women's Running Series - Leeds 10k

Well, that was a blast. I'd been a bit worried yesterday as I've had a rotten cold but fortunately, it's stayed neck-up, so I was still able to run, albeit with a slightly fuzzy head.

It was both hillier and muddier than I'd expected - but hey, that just adds to the fun, right? I didn't think my husband was going to let me back in the car afterwards, such was the state of my poor shoes.

I don't think I completed it particularly quickly - I reckon I came in about 1:09, which is certainly not a pb - but I ran every step of the way, even the really steep bits, so I'm pretty happy with that.

Next up, the Yorkshire 10 mile. I can hardly wait...πŸ’•

Well done for getting out there with the cold and running up and down the hills. I had the same issue at the Southampton womens run and coughed my way round lol. I will be looking forward to the women's racing series next year, i thought it was a well organised event. Good luck for your 10 miler!

I was really impressed with the organisation at this one too - and the atmosphere was lovely. I'll definitely sign up for them again in future. I'm lucky not to have a cough (yet) but poor you having to do the Southampton one in that state!

Well done - Considering you encountered mud and hills, I think you should be pretty pleased with that time...you look it in the photo!πŸ™‚

Honestly, given the state I was in yesterday, I was delighted to make it round at all! I love running in mud but it doesn't half slow you down!

Well done and that's a fab photo πŸ™‚ I did one of the WR runs a few years ago and thought it was really well organised but they didn't come back to my area again ☹️

Good luck with the 10 miles.

That's a shame. I think they're planning to expand next year so hopefully they'll return to you!

Well done! That was good to get round without stopping. Crikey! I can't envisage ever doing that. Strewth! Great time for a trail race too! Go You!

Good luck with the next one!

Thank you - I didn't think I ever would either! But I'm very, very stubborn...!
