Great to be back out racing in North Wales 😃 As part of their marathon build up Ann Robinson and Emma Hollinshead undertook the Rhyl 10 mile race on a sunny Sunday morning. Both are at different stages of Marathon training with Ann targeting Manchester and Emma London, so today was a chance to do something different to a long run and have a bit of fun (yes 10 miles is fun when your normal Sunday run is 14+ miles 😉)Ann flew round the out and back course and recorded a new pb, smashing her previous one by over 3 minutes to record a time of 1:27:53 and 3rd W60. I did say to Ann beforehand this could happen 😃 Meanwhile Emma took the 10 miles in her stride, recording a time of 1:25:39 and 5th W50.Today was my third run in a month. Don’t catch that nasty coughing bug; it’s not good for you! 😱 I have to say I could have stopped at 8 miles but cruised around in the aerobic zones wearing my clippy cloppy trainers. In doing so I finished 1st M55 (doesn’t happen much these days so a very nice bonus 😃) in a time of 1:06:23A successful and enjoyable day, thanks to Chris Yorke and the Run Wales team for a very well organised and enjoyable race (a dry and sunny day for a change compared to some of the strong winds and torrential rain of previous years 😃)Enjoy the rest Ann and Emma, the long run will be back next week 😈#running #runner #runners #10miles #marathontraining #runwales #northwales #mastersathlete #mastersrunner #mastersrunning #recoveryweek ...

Emma and I had an opportunity to pop over to Shrewsbury Indoor Bowls Club and receive a couple of hours off fantastic coaching from Roy Porter and Fern Baggott. Today we practiced controlling a weighted shots and drawing. If you are new to bowls I would recommend visiting the club and having tuition from the brilliant coaches.It’s a world of sport for Emma as she is back to marathon training tomorrow and the dreaded long run 😂 As for me, I get the easy job on feed station duty.Thanks again to everyone at our latest Club Hub for making us feel so welcome 😀 ...
