Running drills and a social run around the area, with Sheffield Vegan Runners.

Forgot to start watch so only measured the social run and WD.

Then when I got home I went out for a couple more miles, while I was dressed for it.

Dalby Dash 10k

It started to rain as the race director said a few words and we had 2 minutes silence. I’d found out a bit about the course from another runner on the start line, positioned myself behind the fastest runners but not that far back.

The start was downhill then rose into a long hill about 1.5 miles long. After that was about 3 miles of downhill, then a flattish mile to the finish. The first 2 miles were good tarmac, then compacted stone trail.

Felt good on the hill, pushed hard down the downhill and kept it going along to the end.

Knocked 6 minutes off my 10k PB that I’d set at Stockport in September. Finished 101st out of 455. Was 17th in my age category out of 52. Very happy.

And I was going to do this race easy and work hard at Brighton next weekend! Guess I’ll swap it round and enjoy flat Brighton.
