Running Club News 23/3/15

I was expecting a quiet one this evening after yesterdays successes at the Eastleigh 10k, but it turned out to be the busiest session of the year so far! We had 3 new recruits to welcome to the running club this evening. Lynne, Clare and Hana. They finally plucked up the courage to come and give it a go and they did amazing. They completed the 2.7mile route non-stop in their first run for many years! Well done ladies and welcome to the club, I hope to see you all there again next week!!

We also had a few people returning this evening – Charles was back from Vegas Baby! He said he was a few pounds worse than when he went, I wasn’t sure if that was his weight or the casino effect though. It was good to have him back! Greg has also been away in Florida, although he did make it back for the Eastleigh 10k yesterday. His time of sub-10mins per mile this evening was like he had never been away!!

For those who ran the 10k yesterday I was expecting a slow, cool down run, but no! Nina had a storming run yesterday and was even faster this evening, producing a new Running Club PB of 11m 10s per mile. She was running this evening with Mandy B, whose time was also a Personal Best with the club. Sharon ran with the ladies and no doubt helped with the pacing  Thanks Sharon and well done ladies, just getting faster and faster now!

Carl had a great 10k yesterday and flew round today’s circuit as well. He finished just 3seconds per mile off his PB! Its getting closer though Carl!! Also coming close to setting records was Mike. He took 39 seconds off last weeks time but it wasn’t quite enough to beat his PB, 6m 50s was damn close though and extremely fast!

Nick and Pete both ran different 10k races yesterday and in similar times, so they spent this evenings run comparing notes on the way round. They were clearly in conversation as they missed the turn for the 4.5mile route and ended up having to do the longer 5.8miles.  Still, it was a good loosener after yesterdays run!

Alistair set a new PB at yesterdays 10k so he could have been excused for a gentle stroll this evening, but he started where he left off yesterday and put in another great performance to finish the course 6minutes faster than last week and just outside the 9mins per mile average! Rob also had a PB on yesterdays run and today took 4 mins off last weeks circuit. His 7m 24s per mile was just 7seconds per mile off his PB as well. Well done Gents!

Next week we are going for a “out and back” challenge before setting some new routes for the week after.

Well done all!
