So today was the Lincoln 10k, and those of you who follow my blog will know that a) this is my fifth time running it and b) I was wanting to get under 60 minutes, but some recent training issues (mainly involving my lack of will power) means that instead I was just going for a PB.
Well I didn’t manage a complete PB but I did get a season’s best… my chip time was 69:52. I really struggled, and now I feel very old because my legs, especially my ankles, really hurt! But I did it, and the time isn’t too bad. A friend suggested I saw this as a good starting point for the British 10k in July – seems a very sensible way of looking at things. I’d better keep running then hadn’t I?!
