Delft Droomtijdloop

Start 1.38 (warming up)
 Last night was the Clocks Go Back So Run a Dream Time half Marathon in Delft. I ran a 'clock time' of 1:08. Teehee. I'll give that Mo fellah a run for his money next month in Nijmegen and no mistake! 
Anyway, meanwhile back in the land of daytime Clog, I'm still dead chuffed with my 'proper time'. It's almost exactly half an hour faster than the horror of a half I ran in Den Haag in March before my lovely doctor finally found an asthma medicine that works well for me. And that in the middle of the night. Which I noticed did seem to have the effect that you couldn't always go as fast as you might in daylight. I saw a number of falls - nothing serious but more than I've ever seen in any previous event. Great atmosphere, one part went along a lakeside lit only by beacons. Another part went through the centre of town with groups of drunken students cheering us on. The race was sponsored by a local bed shop and when we passed it they had various cheering folk in their jammies on beds placed outside. Weather was perfect too.

Goudasfalt 10k

Start 10.04
My 10k was brilliant. Just about perfect really. Practically matched my last fastest measured 10k of 2 years ago (though not sure how totally accurate this one was - no chip timing). But as a good bit of the course was rough track I was well chuffed to be even in the neighbourhood of a PR. On the way back latched on behind an older man I recognised from a 15k event in 2014 where we finished more or less together. Him and another woman had been quite a bit ahead of me and I'd caught them up with some effort and managed to hang on to their tails till the finish line. Thanked them at the end for pacing me so well ;-) I don't think I'd have been able to do nearly as well without their influence. Afterwards there was a woman handing out cards for a free trial session and a €5 discount for a new massage place so my muscles had a thorough seeing to by a very good masseuse. 

I've just been looking back at the 10k and half marathon I did in March/April before my new asthma drugs regime. The difference between then and now is huge. 11+ minutes off a 10k time is not to be sneezed at. That breathing properly when running is sUch a help!

Start 9.29

Killed the alarm several times and by the time I got out the door the planned long run really wasn't going to happen.
