May have a rest day tomorrow, did a long run today and have the Filey 10k beach race on Sunday (may opt out of swim in the sea after).

I'm used to hills as my home Park run used to be Locke Park, Barnsley. May give Graves a visit shortly when I can afford a week off from my regular venue (Clifton Park).
Will see how much clearance I have in the League points table when results are posted later. If i'm enough points (100) in front of 2nd I may make an exception next Saturday

Arrrgghh.....
Did the pb by 3 seconds but it wasn't enough to save me from the drop.
It was the Steel City Striders mob that invaded us wot did it.

500th = 25:27

Thats 5 seconds lower than last week, and 2 seconds better than my new pb.

Congrats on the new PB!! :-)

Looking at the results, seems like quite a fast field this week at Graves, due to the Striders invasion no doubt.

Yeah, the times get posted on your personal record before they show on the 'results'. But , when you click on the last result in your sequence the days results pop up.

Winemiester - We could do with an opinion about 'Yorkshire tough'. Barnsley had a face-off with Roundhay which seemed that R'hay won. We are the toughest (sounds so much better than slowest ;-), in Sheff and Yorkshire? and, therefore it goes without saying, the world!

Got the results now and it seems I have a large enough gap to go AWOL to Graves for a jolly next Saturday although I do have the Moss valley madness 10k on the Sunday which I need to jog and not get carried away.
Anyone else doing the MVM 10k ?

This Sunday, will be heading off to Filey for the 10k there. Next Sunday, GYR...

What's the MVM? Never heard of it, anywhere near Rother Valley?

Be nice to get more at Sheffield Castle. I've done it a couple of times, and it's a good route with some nice views of the city. It's a 3 lapper, slightly hilly; but not as bad as Graves (my times are about 1:30 quicker than at Graves).

28-9-2013 = Attendances

Concord = 35
Graves = 87
Hillsborough = 64
Sheff Castle = 37
Sheff Hallam = 384

Total = 607

It looks like the colder weather effected numbers but it was an excellent day for pb's with 161 across the city. Including 100 at Sheff Hallam, 33% of eligible runners - I guess the new input of students are getting used to the course.

42% runners at hillsborough achieved PBs, 47% if you remove the unknown runners.
