Spring 2021 virtual HUHM and HU10k 😍 Results, results, results!!! Spoiler alert 😁

⭐ See a list of the results here!!!: docs.google.com/spreadsheet...

WOOHOO you did it!!!

Roseabi or I will edit this and turn it into a suitably awesome post when we have chance. In the meantime share you results below and keep your race reports coming.

You are absolute superstars and I can't wait to catch up properly tonight

👊👍👏👏👏🏆

⭐ Roseabi here! And a massive WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO from me tooooooo!!!!

In trying to balance out the headwind and the tailwind I somehow ended up finishing my HM miles from home! Seems to be my jam anyway 😂 Now I have finally got home and eaten all the food I am ready to get with the HU posting.

REALLY REALLY enjoyed listening to Linda's commentary - WHO ELSE TRIED TO LICK THEIR ELBOW??? ADMIT IT IN THE COMMENTS BELOW!!!!!!

Another revelation for me today was having music to listen to, which I haven't done since graduating Couch to 5K back in er January 2015. I confess I didn't use the official playlist but I did borrow quite a few tracks from it. I finished (checking my watch every 5 seconds!!!) to Bad Moon Rising by Creedence Clearwater Revival - what did you cross the line to?

Anyway, more updates on the way....

Sandraj39Half Marathon

Hi all! Bib 351 - 10k in 1:07:00 exactly. Good to be building my distance up again after the niggles and I really enjoyed my run on the trails (as ever!🙂)Only mishap was a technical hitch with Rungo - it failed to play any of the commentary, just piped up at each km! Disappointing but probably down to my poor tech skills and not having explored it properly before the run.

Thank you so much for all your hard work on this Linda and Roseabi! 👏👏👏🙂

Thanks so so much

I already know I can lick my elbow and know better than to try whilst running! 🤣 did make me laugh though.

The commentary was brilliant. Very impressed with all the efforts from you two lovely ladies 😘

1:57:19

Plus 4:54:09 for last Sunday 20 miles 2,900ft 👍🏻😁

No music for me sadly as my music was drowning out the app, couldn't have both so just had the app. Because I'd messed up it was running .5 mile behind me so I actually finished to silence and got the celebration on my cool down walk 🤣

Haha! Absolutely amazing run!!! I was trying to calculate the odds of one of us being able to lick our elbow! I could probably lick your elbow too, but that would just be weird!Garmin actually finished before Rungo even though I started them both together - GPS is very iffy in the park where I did the last 8k

GoGo_JoJo profile image

I was originally going to do my 10k on today, but since this opened a day early I decided to run it Saturday afternoon instead as that was more convenient. My time was 1:03:29 - not my quickest, but not bad as was my first 10k for several months, plus I did also stop to take a few photos :)

Thanks and very well done to linda9389 and the others involved in the organization - it made this a great experience. I enjoyed the playlist (particularly the extended version of Born Slippy!) and the RunGo commentary added some great motivation to keep going 😀

Cmoi profile image
CmoiMetric Marathon

Hello linda9389 and roseabi! Thanks again for all your amazing work in organising this. I loved the playlist - well, almost all of it! I didn't use RunGo as this was a very personal run for me and I needed time for my thoughts. I'm hoping to fit in a 10k later this week and give it a go then instead.

Ah, results, you say? Well, I'm bib no. 001 (get me!) and not only was my HM time a PB, at 2:27:44, but I carried on and cracked a metric marathon - admittedly with a bit of Jeffing at the end when my legs seized up - 26.31k with 598m elevation gain. Please may I have a badge?

Even better, my fundraising for the hospice which cared for my late brother-in-law Paul (1958-2008) has now gone past the £500 mark.

So I'm a very happy bunny. And yes, I wore the bunny ears in the photo throughout the run. I do not recommend them as a training aid, I spent a crazy amount of time and energy hanging onto them and re-adjusting them. They only fell off once though!

Woman wearing bunny ears, about to run a half- marathon. Yes, really!
Stephen_UK profile image
Stephen_UKHalf Marathon in reply to Cmoi

Well done, Cmoi. Especially impressive that you did it in bunny ears. Did you get any comments from people?

Cmoi profile image
CmoiMetric Marathon in reply to Stephen_UK

Thanks Stephen_UK. It's so rural round here I think I only saw nine people to speak to! I'd prepared little slips of paper explaining what I was doing, so I didn't have to stop too long, and gave out just four. Maybe had about 12-15 cars go past too. People were lovely, I got lots of smiles and thumbs-ups! 👍😁

Stephen_UK profile image
Stephen_UKHalf Marathon in reply to Cmoi

That’s brilliant – so organised.

Smiles and thumbs-up are definitely welcome.

Cmoi profile image
CmoiMetric Marathon in reply to Stephen_UK

Where I live, it's perfectly normal - and actually expected - that you say "Bonjour !" to complete strangers. So it would be pretty rude just to run past people, particularly in my Crazy-Running-Bunny-Lady kit! 🐇🏃‍♀️

I must also confess to being a bit obsessive at times. When I arrived at my wedding, and the minister asked if I thought everybody was there, I pointed out that I couldn't really pop into the church to check. Whereupon my brother commented that he was surprised I hadn't had all the guests bar-coded! 🤣

Stephen_UK profile image
Stephen_UKHalf Marathon in reply to Cmoi

Ha ha. That’s funny.

As for people being friendly, I’m in London so the few smiles or hellos I get are rare and really do mean a lot. Sometimes I wish I lived in a friendly rural area.

Most people round here will say "hello". Although I've noticed that, on longer runs that take me closer to Bristol, the likelihood of any acknowledgement drops off rapidly as I leave the local area.

Nice one on completing the HUHM and a Metric Marathon. Those bunny ears can't help with the aerodynamics! I guess it wasn’t too windy today where you are? Presumably, the trees help calm the wind down a bit.

Cmoi profile image
CmoiMetric Marathon in reply to SkiMonday

Thanks SkiMonday. Fortunately it wasn't windy here today, and yes, the section in the forest and the valleys helped. But pretty much every time I went downhill, or turned into the wind, I was frantically grabbing at the ears!

Thank you both for all your hard work!! I’m delighted to say I ran a half marathon, and although I slow ran, I did it in 2 hours 34 minutes, which wasn’t as bad as I expected.

Well, all you HM runners who think you were slow, put your minds at rest. I am slow. You are sensibly paced. It's my second HM in three weeks and I'll be 65 in May, and it was pretty windy...

21.38km completed in 3h 31m elapsed time (Strava says that equates to 3:28:29 for the actual HM distance).

Two HMs in three weeks is fantastic Kalessin, and huge thanks again for your incredibly kind and generous donation. 🤗 Total is currently £631, way above what I'd ever hoped for. 🙃

Sadly, being rather technically challenged, I couldn’t get the virtual run or comments to work on Rungo. Very much enjoyed some new music though...and the wind, great fun in both directions, being pushed hard one minute and putting up my best fight the next. Anyway despite my awful knees I made 10k, first time since January, 1: 28:19, a slow but happy run 😁Many thanks to everyone 🙏

What a horrible day for a run, but still managed to get out there 😀. First time I’ve taken anything on a run for extra fuel too, big up the jelly babies. I ran a bit further than the planned 10km.

But 10km time came in at 1:02:06

Sorry for the late reply Linda - having many tech issues today - forgot to start my watch after a long segment (twice! augghh) and wound up running further to make the recorded distance, then I originally posted the full 23.5k as a race time, but then later realized you can't use that for the club run, so I've reverted back to the 21.1 recorded time only and have it here:

strava.com/activities/50262...

1:53:18

Was a bit rainy and flooded in one or two sections, but otherwise nice conditions. I've not pushed harder in quite some time and I am feeling it a bit now. Thank you for forcing me to push a bit.

Thank you Linda and Roseabi for organising this, very much appreciated. Ms Roboterta Rungo abandoned me at 1.25k in but your playlist kept me going. I hope to have another attempt at Rungo, it was fun. Was stuck marching up and down behind barrier arms twice waiting to cross the railway lines (trains at the station) and had a moment when a very large dog (on a leash) knocked me sideways into the gutter. I did say several very rude words! His mouth connected with the packet of jelly babies in my jacket pocket fortunately they were unharmed and were consumed 😅 My time for the 10k was 1.21.45

I managed my 10k yesterday in (almost) dry conditions, but what a wind! Anyway, first one since last November- done in 1:20:01. Crossed the line to Papa's got a Brand New Pigbag (by Pigbag) - not the official playlist, although I have nicked/been inspired by quite a lot of them, so have incorporated them into mine. Was helped up a last nasty hill with some antique Drum & Bass: Blind Faith by Chase & Status. Magic! Bib no. 305 - thanks again for organising this & getting me out of the house on a Sunday morning!

1:16:36 for 10k for me.... I started slowly because my knee felt a bit funny the last day or two... And then discovered that the Google map of my new route didn't clarify that there was a big hill in the middle!!!!! But then on the way back when back on flatter ground, I thought I'd just see if I could finish under 1:20...and managed to get a PB! Thanks so much for organising it... Feels nice to do it as a group and read how everyone gets on.

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Lookslikejames

Ice and rest from running, but do keep it moving I think. Gentle walks when that isn't painful, building up to a brisk walk and then eventually to a run again.

Lookslikejames profile image
LookslikejamesHalf Marathon in reply to linda9389

I took a nice walk today and it felt much better, so a few days rest with ice should do the trick 😊

Cmoi profile image
CmoiMetric Marathon in reply to Lookslikejames

It's a gorgeous day here, so rather than catching up on marking at lunchtime I actually went for a walk to check my legs still worked! They do, but I wouldn't have bet on it yesterday evening.

In retrospect, I'm glad that my workload made it impossible for me to run much over the past fortnight. Strava tells me I only ran three times, and the total of those runs was near enough identical to what I ran yesterday! I was clearly much better for having had a rest, so even though I think you're a fair bit younger than me, Lookslikejames, I'd still suggest you take it easy for a little while. 🙂

Lookslikejames profile image
LookslikejamesHalf Marathon in reply to Cmoi

Yes, to be fair over the last couple of weeks I’ve run more miles than ever before, so to finish that with a half was always going to destroy me! I’m hoping a couple of days off will do me some good and then I can go back to shorter recovery runs

HM in 3h3mins. Or maybe in 183mins. Which sounds more impressive?

linda9389Administrator in reply to Dexy5

Oh, put me on the spot!!! 🤣 We did say elapse time at, but I'm not sure how consistent that's been because we don't ask for proof or check anything, we just take what we're given! As our winners will be decided against a randomly generated time on Sunday morning, there is no handicap to you if I record it as elapse time if that's OK with you 😊.

I hope it was nice and sunny - but it sounds like it was busy?

Dexy510 Miles in reply to linda9389

That’s fine Linda. If it was a real race I couldn’t pause the time. I’ll still call it a PB for me though.

It was beautiful and we were glad of the shade of the trees when running past the caravan park. Yes the sunshine brought everyone out today. The main problem was that the groups of walkers and mums with prams have expanded from the previous 1+1. I think we will return inland for the next run.

Hopefully if I can get an organised event instead of running solo (all my HMs have been solo to date), the event energy and having other runners might just help me find that extra boost.

Hello again linda9389, roseabi and lovely VRBs!

Went out for my first run today after Sunday, minus bunny ears this time, and ran 10.21k in 1:06:28, 208m elevation gain.

That makes my time for the HU Spring 10k (bib 307) 1:05:09, which Strava tells me is my third-fastest 10k time. Seems highly unlikely, but who am I to argue?!

Also delighted to say that my fundraising total currently stands at £668 plus £110 Gift Aid, with more to come from people who'll be paying by cheque. I'm utterly stunned by people's generosity.

We're back into lockdown as of tomorrow evening, but at least this time I'm allowed to exercise within 10k radius of home, without a time limit or paperwork, as long as it's between 6.00am and 7.00pm. So I can still do longer runs, yay!

Happy running, all!

Not sure if this actually counts though? A hip niggle turned into discomfort then pain so I resorted to walking 6k in. It was so annoying as everything else felt awesome and I was going great guns and really enjoying myself.
