good Gosforth.Lion and Lamb 10 mile road race 10 mi 01:06 06:37 pace

Better than anticipated. Expected to run between 70 and 75 mins.So dead chuffed with the time. Finished 7th overall. 2nd over 55 year old. Very bad 7th or 8th mile due to stitch, had to stop and walk. Fourth race in 7 years, probably why I had forgotten how much it can hurt. I will post mile splits now that I'm home also finishing area picture to prove just how bad I looked.

    brilliant run Paul, be proud a great result, I don't think there are many 10 mile races these days, all 10kms, I miss that, I think it's a distant memory but I use to run at that pace and think it was normal and easy, what's happend to all the young guys who should be doing it now!

    Last 10 miler I did was 17 years or so ago. Also on the night 7 out of first 10 were vet, the tenth one being the first lady. So you're right, where is the young blood? My own personal thoughts are they are being enticed by the temptations of the track and the possible monetary rewards to be gained there. Think they'll then do some lucrative 10ks and finish off in the big city marathons... Shame really, but they do have to make a living. Again, as you say, I think our fastest days are behind us, a
