Location: Freethorpe, United Kingdom
This was my first (and probably last) 10-mile running race, starting at Freethorpe Village Hall and meandering down to the Reedham water-front before looping back to the start. Callum Stanforth (Ryston Runners) put in the winning time of 56:01, and first woman was Emma Patel with 1:02:48.

I had a really healthy start, comfortably maintaining a sub 4:00/km pace for the first few miles at around 170bpm, before hip pain set in and I struggled to hold a 5:00/km pace. I got a 10k PB of 41:07, which was really satisfying.

I felt good running a fast pace for the first few miles, and then the leg pain set in. Practically hobbled for the last couple of miles!

I rode a steady 21 miles down to Freethorpe, keeping my legs fresh for the race, and put the pace high for the ride home.

Nice & easy ride out, and fast on the way home. So glad to be back on the bike after a tough run!
