Hardmoors 55: Type Two Fun

By the time I had finished the coach journey from Guisborough to Helmsley, queued for kit check and stood around chatting for two hours, I had been up for six hours before we eventually set off on this race. Having said that, I’d got my head down at a reasonable time the night before and I always think that 5 and a half hours of decent sleep is much more valuable than eight hours of broken sleep in a B&B or wherever. I managed to get on the emptiest of the coaches anyway, and chatted to Yannick Peron who does a lot of longer events and is nice and calm – his only sin is that he comes from the wrong side of our city. It always helps to get sat near someone who isn’t going to get too agitated on the coach, because it can quickly rub off on you: I remember the guy a few years ago who was throwing his guts up on the coach because he was so nervous about the run.

Golden Fleece (15 miler – that’s enough for me thanks)

The Golden Fleece is an event by the South Cave Scout Group, there are two choices of route that you can take a short (as if) 15 miler, or the long (I’ll say) 27.5 miles. It’s been a popular and successful event for East Hull Harriers and the long route has been completed first by one of our red brethren every year since 2013. This year was doubly successful as both races were won by an East Hull Harrier, Rob Weekes coming home first in the long route and Danny Wilson winning the shorter race.

East Midland 10k at Nottingham

After Christmas I decided that I really didn’t like cross country that much and I would concentrate on 10K’s from now on . I resolved to train harder and specifically for that distance all thru the year .
