Thanks mate. I was 93/1335 overall and 9/132 AG.

Most of km splits were between 4.12-4.20. slowest was 4.35 at the 8km mark (longest drag) and fastest was the final km at 3.57 (mostly downhill).

I can't really say I speeded up at the 5-8km but definitely didn't slow down as much as I thought I would. Needed more effort for the climbing in that section but ran the previous kms with that in mind.

Amazing how many I passed toward the end of of the first 1.5kms, some went off way too fast.

NICE one Fatpom. Are you a dedicated 10k specialist now?
'The Beast from the East' put paid to my pb attempt.. went out at 3.30/k but then turned into the wind and that just killed it. Southend parkrun is 3 laps with a good 1k along the seawall right on the corner of headland... so a lungful/faceful of the North sea's finest cold air this weekend. 18.33 for 3rd was ok but i'm going to have to wait until May for another attempt.. hoping for some calmer conditions to assess my post marathon fitness. Anyone else racing this weekend ? I skipped my club XC y'day to fit an early half marathon in..funnily enough that was cold too....

Holy crap mate, that's moving, nice one!

Definitely not a 10km specialist but did learn a few good lessons. My next big hit out is the Gower Duathlon late March.

I was meant to swim last night but my legs had other ideas. Turbo tonight, that should be 'interesting' Very Happy

did Heaton Parkrun on Saturday, the first time I've run fast in 6 months after nursing a calf injury and being lazy. It is hilly so happy with 20:53 which is only 61 seconds off my PB there.

I ran 19:54 off the bike at Chirk sprint in 2015 so I want to get back to those speeds for the same race in 7 weeks. Lots of work to do!

Treadmill 5 k today @ 1% incline.

Started far too slowly, be nice to get near 18 before Oulton Park.

Dead legs now.

Nice. depending on the pace, sometimes I find treadmill harder and sometimes easier than outside.

Treadmills can wreck running form....

So I'm told.
The snow would have wrecked my form slightly more...

Trying to find a bit of speed for Oulton.
Endurance has improved for sure.
Hope the weather does the same.

Nice... i've been jealous of some of the pics ive seen of snowy runs on Strava. I would have loved to have been out in my X-talonss this week but ive been struck down by a nasty cold. Thats a week out of my marathon schedule gone without a single step run, although no disaster as i was mini-tapering for sunday's 20 mile race anyway.....which has now been cancelled. Thats a bit annoying but i maybe would have had to skip anyway.. looks like a weekend of r&r then back to it on monday....
