East Hull Harriers Winter League Race 2: 3 Mile handicap, Saturday 18/11/2017

Considering how simple the sport of running is, it ain’t ‘arf complicated sometimes. This was my first race since June, but probably the first time I’d felt ‘up’ for a race since February. Having had a decent crack at training through January, I’d set myself a personal target of breaking the sub-39 barrier at the Dewsbury 10km – nothing that would trouble any world records, but a milestone for someone who’d never gone under 41 minutes before the last Dewsbury 10km in 2016.

3 Peaks Weekend

Earlier in the year Ali put a post up about the EHH 3 Peaks weekend away .  Last year it clashed with Scarborough and Haltenprices 10K’s so unfortunately I didn’t go coz I had entered Scarborough  but this year I was determined to be there  . Now I don’t often run further than 8 miles and have only “run” over 20 miles once in my life and that was July 2016 when I attempted to run the 3 Peaks. I had previously walked the full route many times before with a fastest time of 8 hours 5 mins .   My run time from 16 months ago was 6 hours and  45 mins  and that day was dry and sunny , but I had taken the compleatly wrong route up Pen y Ghent . I had decided to going up the “runners” route instead of my normal “walkers” one  …  Unfortunately I went up neither and just went the long way up , adding about a mile and half to the distance . So this year was determined to not get lost  …….

Exorcising the Demons – Cilck ‘Em Inn 5 mile & Escrick 10k

I think it’s fair to say that most of us experience highs and lows in running, all relative to our individual ability, so I’ve tried to keep a level of perspective on what has been a very topsy turvy few months for me. The low point of this, at least I hope it was as low as I’ll get, was the Newark half marathon, in which, even though it was a flatish course, loaded with pb potential, I had a horrendous run.
