After enjoying running the Lincoln 10k last year I decided to enter it again this year.
This would be my first real running event since my achilles injury.
What I didn’t expect was a stinking head cold on the day or Geoff to be home to drive me there cheer me on and take photo’s 🙂
Once again it was a fabulous day with well over 6000 runners, many I knew from the Ryston Runners and 5 other Ladybirds. too.
The route was well supported , we had perfect weather conditions and some how I managed to get a P/B time of 56.14
Unfortunately I had told Geoff to expect me to finish in around an hour so he missed me at the finish line!
A Great start to this years running events 🙂
After my disappointment of not being able to do the Peterborough half marathon in October due to an achilles injury, I hoped i would be fit enough to do the Ely News Years Eve 10km
Once I was able too, around the beginning of December,I started back at parkrun taking it nice and easy, my achilles still ached but I could manage the 5km.
Christmas Day I was up nice and early to go to Ferry Meadows Christmas day parkrun, over 300 other runners turned up too, a great way to start Christmas day and a really nice running route,lovely that Geoff came along to support and take photos too.
I decided not to run again then till New years Eve to give my achilles time to rest.
Then on a cold Icy morning I met my friend Gina in Little Downham where Geoff surprised us both by turning up unexpected 🙂
Although Gina is a much faster runner than me she decided she wanted to run with me to make sure I was ok and much to my delight after not running that distance since September I managed it in just over an hour.
A fun way to end the year with a great friend for company too 🙂
That evening Geoff and I went out for a lovely dinner at d’Arry’s my surf and turf, steak and lobster was to die for and a perfect way to see the new year in 🙂
