Pacing 50 at the Women’s 10k again!

I’ve done the Glasgow Women’s 10k quite a few times now (I even ran my 10k PB at it a few weeks after the Lochaber marathon and), the last two times I’ve done it as a pacer doing 50 minutes. I’m lucky enough to be doing pacing 50 minutes again at this years event. 🙂

Anyway, as I said, I’m pacing 50 minutes at tomorrow’s event, and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s always a great day, and even with my legs just recovered from the marathon on Monday 5th, I know it’ll be great fun. My calves were a bit tight on today’s short run, but I should be ok.

Here’s my splits and stats from my first pacing in 2012. Using my Garmin for pacing, I finished just outside 50 minutes (8:04 min miles) as I ran a steady 50 minute pace until about 500m before the end where I slowed down quite a bit to let people overtake me. It was ace. And I received a hug from a stranger who I’d helped get a PB. 🙂

Last year, I nailed it. I ran slightly above pace (7:58 ish) most of the way around, then slowed at the end to finish just over 10k in just over 50 minutes. Last year was good because I met a lot of people I’d helped the year before. So I hope to meet them again this year so I can help them, and others, again.

Tomorrow I’m aiming for around 7:58 pace again, with a slower finish in the hope that people feel strong enough to catch me and overtake me.

I’ll be at the gates to Bellahouston Park, the ones where Dumbreck Road meets Nithsdale Road at about 9:15 to 9:30, then I’ll go on up Nithsdale Road to start within the white section I’d think.

Keep an eye out for me, say hi if you see me, and if you want paced steadily, encouraged and helped along your run, stick with me (or one of the other pacers). See you tomorrow. 🙂
