You said I could break 50 minutes Granty,I didn`t believe I could get close.

Yesterday I ran 50.03,over 3 1/2 minutes better than my only other 10k,but I just wished I could have found enough to go under 50.

Thanks to you all on here for keeping running interesting & fun.

Wey hey !! way to go batman !! :d

Fantastic achievement dave, beside what is .03 seconds between fourmite buddies eh ??!!?? :embarrassed:

Knew you had it in you, I checked last night to see of you had posted your time, and I must admit, I thought if it was a good 'un it would have been on there by then.

Well done again, I must now go away and concentrate on beating it !!:asleep:

PS - Was the all in one Lycra comfortable ? :eek:

Thanks Nellie. Cheers Granty.

Boring shorts and T-shirt I`m afraid. ;)

Well done Dave...and you got it right too....you now only need to run 4 secs quicker next time to break 50mins!
Cheers Steve.

The thing that makes me think I might just be able to do it one day is that due to my inexperience I allowed myself to get caught in a pack at the start and the consequence of that was a first Kilometer time of 5.35.

So here`s looking forward to the next one.

You are probably right Dave but at the same time a slower than planned start may have been good for you. Always best to start a bit slower and gradually pick up the pace. You'll be better at judging your pace and those around you next time and a sub-50 should be no problem.

You'll be targeting sub-45 in no time!
