So last week I mentioned that this weeks club run would be the Steve Baird Handicap.
Er well I was mistaken. I forgot that there was a change in the syllabus and 2 races had to have a swap.
The distance was still 5km, but there was no uphill finish. Instead of Steve’s run, it was the David O Jones handicap.
With the last run for Autumn it was one on the cool side. I had to bring out the running gloves to keep my hands warm at the start.
Miles decided not to run, because 1, I told him it was 2km (as I thought it was Steve’s run), and 2, his asthma has been playing up with the cold weather.
Kayla however was determined to give it a go. She just loves to run.
This girl is getting faster that’s for sure. She was running too fast for my warm up run, but she ran so well.
I covered the 5km is 24:17, with an average 4:51 pace.
Keith H, one of the coaches (now retired from running), said to me “I know it seems like I’m nit picking, but lift your arms up a bit higher, it will help you to go faster”.
He also told me that I’m running really well, and getting faster. This coming from a man who has run for 50 years, is definitely a good thing.
There is no club run this weekend due to the Queens Birthday long weekend.
That’s not going to stop me from getting out there and going for a run.
