Report from Frank Beresford:
I entered Pudsey 10k in its 25th Anniversary to test myself on tired legs. I came to the race with 70 miles in the legs form the previous 6 days of marathon training and my legs where not feeling too fresh, however when the race started most of the tightness in my legs seem to go. I started the race pretty fast and managed to have a clear lead after 1 mile into the race, Thereafter I descended into the woods and really did try and push myself on my own rather than relying on other runners to do the work for me. It was difficult to remain keep concentration through the trails but I was soon awoken by a few of the hills on the course! The last mile was on the road which I enjoyed, it felt good to actually get my legs moving on the open road for a change and I finished the race with a clear lead. I am unsure of my time, but I do know I was unable to obtain the machine, Ian Fisher’s record!
After the race I did 6 miles on tired legs for Yorkshire Marathon training, and enjoyed the Prize of the Cake that was given to all the prize winners.
