Awesome run because I not only got an epic PB….took 4 mins off previous best…I actually for the first time ever – ran a 10k in under 60 mins. 59:16 according to Garmin.
Official results out in 48 hours but as it wasn’t chip timed I usually take Garmin time as usually more accurate.
Was very windy and very busy…dodging walkers, cyclists and dogs and closer to Goring there were a load of kite surfers out.
Nice route along the beach side but quite narrow in places especially when the faster runners were on their way back . I was also surprised how many Sunday walkers refused to move off the path and walk on nice grass area, to let runners through! So any overtaking had to be strategically planned to also avoid crashing into casual walkers.
As much of a dog lover as I am….I was also surprised how many owners let their dogs charge across the path we were running on…twice I nearly tripped over 2 dogs: little white Westie chasing his ball and a Springer Spaniel who was just charging around like a lunatic.
Despite all that – I’m feeling great and once again – huge thanks to this club and the regular Wed and Sat runners, for pushing me and not letting me dawdle too much at the back each week as I’m 100% sure my improvements are due to this clubs support
