Salisbury 10 – SDL

Regular blog readers will know our correspondent from 5 and 10k reports… however his first ten miler was a little more “educational” than planned.. Sidney DeLara reports:
Never done a 10 mile run before. Salisbury 10 mile road run, rural scenic and undulating ,was up one side of valley of the river Avon and back down other side.
 I got it wrong on this occassion, out to 5 mile marker in under 34 mins but really suffered on way back, just seemed to slow down more the further I ran, really horrible to have runner after runner go past me.
Hopefully no-one had recognized him from other races and thought, “Sid’s got his pacing sorted, I’ll just follow him!” – well, if they did, I guess they learned something too. Haven’t we all had races like that, where our legs pass Mile N and go “Hey, shouldn’t the race have ended now? Oh, ____!”.
