Well that was a warm one! This is favourite of ours, (was the very first 'proper' 10k me and my OH did so we have a soft spot for it) very local, easy going, lovely track - mostly flat, off road. And when I say flat, in comparison to some other places, yes it is flatish, but for us softee southerner East Anglian sorts who can get a nose bleed climbing stairs, there are some 'hills' about 7k's worth......
Although the morning started off a bit cool, the sun was very warm, much of the track had no shade, so when there was a bit of cloud cover it was gratefully received!
Met up with millwalki8 at the starting pen, we were in the 'must try harder' slot where the estimated time boards run out....😂, Lots of jollity, and off we went - Millwalki actually scooted off in front, the little scamp.......but I think the heat got to both of us needing walking breaks etc.,
Anyway, we made it, photo of millwalki8, me and my OH, triumphant, but a tad warm at the end 😂.
I did this in 1hr 10 last year, think I may have got 1hr 09, I'll be very happy with that given how warm it was.....
A good day, and always a treat to meet up with fellow C25K'ers.....it'll be in the diary again for next year 😉 (Which will be its 10th anniversary, so I'll be expecting some fancy bling! 😉)
Happy running all 😄
