Dewsbury 10k – 2 February 2020
PB’s for Lee Varley and Kirsty Laing. Jimmy ran his 1st race after damaging his toe and ran his 2nd fastest 10k of all time, should have tried harder and gone sub 35 though 🙂
Simon ran his fastest 10k since 2017 winning his age group and ranking him 3rd in the UK for 2020 so far. Martin Wilkinson ran his best 10k since 2017 and Martin James was pleased with his time to set a bench mark for 2020.

Mickleden Straddle – 2 February 2020
Mariusz said “It was very wet, muddy, windy and cold typical fell race but it was fantastic, 90 seconds faster than last year so I can see progress, Justyna ran as well as she did last year, but conditions were much worse than last year.

Becky HB Report from the Phoenix Marathon
Phoenix Marathon a damp day & cold as the day wore on, but it could have worse weather wise. I entered the event to test my head as much as my body, 3.28 mile loops, so 8 for a marathon. The course down a canal path, crossing a lock, over a bridge on the main road and back following the River Storts banks. The tow paths were great for running on but the riverbank & woodland we’re consistently claggy mud. My trainers were a good couple of llb heavier down this side. Over a steep bridge at the latter end and stamping to remove mud. I found my leg was being whipped by bracken stuck in the mud in my shoe!
The pains in my feet began at 13 miles, from the point on I found a fence halfway round as a leaning post & quickly removed my shoes, stretched my toes & carried on till the next lap. I had to dig deep (not literally) on the muddy side to push on through telling my feet how well they were doing.
I felt strong when I finished and could have continued. Post run assessment what had been a toe nail that kept catching on my sock revealed why, a lovely blister underneath. Dealt with that and felt good on a solid 8 mile recovery run the morning after in the rain.
On waking up this morning could I have run another marathon – yes, however the thought of 9 more at the moment in time is pretty daunting.
