PB at Ilkley

I went to the running club on Monday night knowing that I had hit my 75 miles of running and just did a nice steady session because I was running on Tuesday at Ilkley. I also did some walk and cycling. I had a rest from doing any digging at the allotment because I wanted to do a good time at my first race since I pulled my hamstring, I got to the race with 15 min to spare. I started off at a good pace for the first few miles and even up the first part of the hill and on the second part of the hill I ran up at a slower pace but what must go up must come down so I was faster on the downhill and I was only 3 seconds off nearly beating Ilkley run In to the finish just had nothing left in my legs my time was 47.13 which was 6 min off my time from 2 years ago. Shows how much I have improved since I started this challenge last July. I went to the run club on Wednesday where I was cream crackered and did do the session and did a little run around the athletics club field and the football field. I had a rest on Thursday and did nothing apart from it was hard work walking in to town when you are tired. I went out for a run on Friday around Northallerton town centre avg pace of 10.33min/miles which was very slow and by the time I had finished I had nothing left in the legs again so I had a rest on Saturday and did a walk, a bike ride and some digging at the allotment. I went out for a run at tea time on Sunday after been at the allotment this morning put some more potatoes in. So my back was niggling but I managed 7 miles around Northallerton and nothing left in my legs once I got finished and was 15 seconds slower then when I did my first 7 miles training run for the GNR which takes the first week of running, walking and cycling to 58.39 miles and the miles so far to 1009.0 miles
