WDAC trail run – 5.6 miles

Steady 5.6 miles tonight. Last run was on Saturday. Complete rest since then, 3 days of rest rarely happens. 

Felt good to be out in the mud and rain.

First run in the invo8 race ultra 290, they felt nice and comfy. The toe box doesn’t offer much waterproof protection. But this isn’t much of a worry. 

New shoe day

This Saturday I will be running the dukeries 30. 

My current trail shoes – VJ sport irocks are a little too aggressive for the summer trails. I’ve purchased a pair of inov8 race ultra 290. 

They are 323g on the scales and 392g with my heat molded footbalance innersoles.

Silverstone 10km – 04/05/16

After last years disaster of a DNF due to terrible weather conditions. I was determined to beat this race.

This was the first race in the East Midlands Grand Prix series. I missed several races last year, this year the plan is to complete all in the series. 

Weather conditions this year were good, warm with a little breeze.

Felt strong and comfortable. Wasn’t sure on pace, haven’t run a 10km for long time. But managed a pb of 49:18

Need to work on splits towards the end of the race.

Good turn out from WDAC
