Race one on Monday was the Kilbarchan Klassic 8k road race, flat out and back in 29:53. Average pace 6:02 per mile. Race 1
Race two on Tuesday was the Garscube Gallop 7k trail race, a mix of tarmac, mud and tree jumping in 28:29. Average pace 6:50 per mile. Race 2
Race three on Wednesday Clydebank Canal Canter 8k road race, flattish out and back along the canal and by now tiredness was creeping in. 29:59 , average pace 6:02 per mile. Race 3
Race four on Thursday at my favourite training ground Mugdock for the Meander 7k trail race, 27:09 average pace 6:19 per mile. At this point Kate pulled out of the series as in her words 'i am knackered' .
Race five on Friday and the finale at Pollock Park for the Bella Belter 10k road race. By now I was almost burst but as I was sitting as third V40 wanted to hold on to that position at least. I had a lead of 29 seconds going into the race and only lost a further 8 seconds to the fourth place V40 so overall more than satisfied with my weeks work. 37:16 for the 10k, average pace 6:03 per mile. Race 5 Both Michael and Holly sadly could not make it for this race as they had to go to an 80th birthday party.
Overall position 11th, 3rd MV40 in a cumulative time of 2:32:46 .
A great week of running and an event I would encourage people to enter next year, well organised and marshalled at each race.
