Farmers Arms 10K Result!


Parbold 10K Oct 19th
The comeback!
After an Achilles tendon injury and general burn out from years and years of racing and hard training I decided to make a comeback!
I'd not raced in 6 months and felt very nervous when I got up this morning!
I'd picked the Parbold 10K because I really enjoyed the route last year.
It's pretty rolling (well compared to Southport at least] but no really big climbs and the quiet country roads make a nice change from your average 10K!
I set a target of sub 40 mins based on my last tempo run, a long way off my best of sub 35 [ Rufford 10 K] but well that was a long time ago!
THE START
I guess there were about 100 of us racing today on a warm blustery windy day.
I was quite shocked to find myself near the front as we went through the first mile, this felt goood :0]
Team mate Paul Warrington came along side me [he's flying after losing a couple of stone] I think we were in 4th and 5th place.
2 Miles went by in 12.11
3 miles in 18.30
By 3 1/2 miles I was starting to blow on the uphills,so I told Paul to push on.
He quickly pulled away, leaving me to try and hang on!
The legs started to feel real heavy now!
My body felt like it wanted to explode!
Runner after runner passed me!
It was mind over matter now!
That last mile was hard ,Oh man was it painful!
Don't give in,keep pushing forward!
At last I reached the top of the final hill :0]
Just 100 meters to go and I picked up the pace to finish in 40.03!
Just of my target, but still quite pleased!
   Paul was 2nd, an amazing run! I  finished 7th !
So at least I achieved one of my goals of a top ten place!
Anyway its cool to be a racer again really cool ;0]
I hope everyone how took part enjoyed the challenge as much as me, CHEERS!
