On Monday I completed my 4th Bupa London 10,000. My race didn’t go as well as I hoped it would.
I was aiming for a sub-60 time but ended up completing the event in 1 hour and 41 seconds.
I could make a load of excuses but there aren’t any. I walked when I didn’t really *need* to i.e. my laziness as a runner continues. At least I wasn’t as slow as I was last year and at least there aren’t any photos of me running so I can save some money.
And a detailed graphical summary of the race which illustrates just how rubbish I was this time. How many people was I overtaken by? To coin a phrase from The Apprentice, it was “shameful”!
Hopefully I’ll be running in the Walsall Arboretum parkrun again in the morning. One day I want to earn my 50 parkrun t-shirt.
On Sunday, it’s my favourite event of the year; the Great Midlands Fun Run. The weather is predicted to be perfect for the spectators i.e. far too hot for the runners.
Watch this space for more not very flattering, beetroot photos!
