Well my slowest ever 20 mile race was followed this weekend by my slowest ever 10km race and to make matters worse I now have a cold! With the London Marathon now only just over two weeks away its a case of staying calm and focused.
Easter Sunday saw good conditions with only a slight headwind for the North Tyneside 10km. The race was won in a new course record by ex Blaydon Harrier Mathew Armstrong, now running for Coventry Godiva in 31.29, from Morpeth pair Michael Morris 2nd in 32.05 and Ross Floyd 3rd in 32.18. I managed 49th place (2nd M50) in 38.29. First M50 was Stephen Hirst in 36.44. so well beaten there.
