My first road race this year apart from cross country and parkruns. I needed to improve upon last year’s DNF when I suffered an early calf strain. Met up with Yasmin Inglis and family, a local event for Yasmin on country lanes. Round 6 of 8 races with mostly club runners. First 3 miles is fairly flat thereafter a long slow climb up to mile 4 and easier for the last mile. Estimated 37 mins so pleased with 36.40 (16th V50) and Yasmin ran a good 41.04, 9th V35.
Next round the Weedon 10K, 23 June 7.45pm, entries also on the day followed by Milton Keynes 10K, 30 June 7.45pm from the Open University.
