    was aiming for 65 minutes, done it before and it wasn't bad. never had the out of breathe feeling after a 10k so really pushing myself next week, 59/60 minutes

    Hi, I was exactly the same, it was just too hot and there was only the one water station :cry: 1hr18 and I hoped for under 1hr10 :( last year was 1hr14 and I walked a lot more than last year so I'm either faster at the running I did or can power walk better and I was only 3.5mins slower. I've signed up for the Yorkshire 10k in Sheffield in sept so hopefully it won't be as warm :) did you have a good day? X
