Running Club News 7/10/13

It was the last week of this route this evening with the Warsash Running Club. A good job too as the nights draw in quickly now and it was getting a little dark through Brook Avenue this evening. However, everyone made it round the route successfully and without stopping, ideal preparation for the Great South Run which is now just 3 weeks away. Out front Mike was looking for his PB on the route and set off like a missile, his first mile close to 6m30s!! It was impossible to keep this pace up especially up the hills but an overall average of 7m 41s was awesome! And Mike finished 1 second ahead of his previous best to set a new course record and a new PB! Chasing Mike this evening was Pete, he was tracking his speed throughout the whole run keeping him in his sights and this competition allowed Pete to complete his best time on the route with an average of just 7m59s. This was Petes best average since March this year and one of his fastest ever with the running club.

Everyone was looking at Greg to attain his 6th consecutive week of improvement, but a wrong turn caused Greg to go a little further than the course was designed and although the extra distance did him well, we didn’t know exactly how far extra he ran and so the average speed wasn’t calculated, it was still great preparation for the GSR though Greg! Well done!

Charles had a great run this evening again. Maintaining his twice a week routine, Charles is looking stronger each week and was only just outside last weeks time. Kate also was just a tad slower than last week, but looked stronger as she finished the route aided by Miles. Thanks to all the runners this evening.

Next week we are running 10miles on Sunday, if you would like further details on this please e-mail The Monday running club will be a shorter run, with extra stretching afterwards.
