Post Lockdown PB

As we are coming out of lockdown in the UK, more events are taking place and our athletes are eventually getting the chance to compete. In the last few weeks Jamie has knocked 30 seconds off his previous best 10k time and just over a minute off his half marathon time. Now it’s time to plan and prepare for a big PB at the Manchester marathon in October.

Marathon Personal Best in Lockdown Time Trial

It’s been a tough year for the athletes I coach without any events taking place, but they have been working very hard. I have to congratulate Ben Haines (v40) who today ran a time trial marathon and posted a 12 minute pb with 2:40:23. He has also posted pb’s this year at 3k 9:38(8 secs improvement), 5k 16:26(18 secs), 5M 27:01(47 secs), 10k 33:57(41 secs), HM 74:55(62 secs). I know none can be declared as official but hats off to the man.

A Good Day for Classic Running

Today was a good day for Classic Running. Vesa ran 2:51:48 in the Hamburg marathon a huge 8 minute PB for the V40 athlete.
Last year Mark ran his first ever marathon and failed to finish, however, this year he prepared well for London and was very pleased to cross the line in a shade under 3:45.
Tom just wanted to run with his sister, but when your sister runs 3:07:15 you have to be in good shape. So with little marathon preparation Tom did well to lead her home by 83 seconds (sibling rivalry!) Will it be good enough for an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records?
