GREAT MANCHESTER RUN 10K PRIZE NOTIFICATION......WHOOPEE!
I received email notification today of my prize for that 3rd place in the age category .......a FREE PLACE FOR NEXT YEAR! Grateful for any thoughts via comments.
I'd just returned from Manchester having delivered the start and finishers banners for Sunday's SALE 10 mile road race. Plus COMPLETE RUNNER race prize vouchers totalling £1150. If you are feeling on top form there is £100 for the first male and first female! Mind you the mens winner may have to break 48 minutes to claim the first prize. You can enter on the day. Check out details on http://www.race-results.co.uk/ 9.00 a.m. from Wythenshawe Park venue as usual. Bit early for me, however. Maybe next week.
Another visit to the Alexandra Park 5K is a possiblity so I thought today was the best option for this week's track sesssion. Again, disappointingly, another damp , cool , breezy day at Nelson which did little to warm the body or fire the enthusiasm. Moreover, as last Thursday's 600 reps in that wind left me feeling pretty wasted the approach today was a tad cautious. Opted for 5 x 1K. .A very modest 4.46 for the first clad in thermal long sleeve as you do in July in England. Not much better on the 2nd and 3rd in 4.41 and 4.41 but I was feeling reasonable so accelerated on the last 2 to 4.26 and 4.29. So solid.....averaging 4.36....but far from outstanding based on even recent race pace.
