The Real Easter story involves Jesus' suffering and death on Good Friday, then rising from the dead on Easter Sunday. I am not planning to parallel that story as I race a 10k on Friday morning and a 5k on Sunday morning! But suffering, yes I am going for it, it will be make and/or break!
I could do anything from running a great sub 40 and getting amongst the medals, through to finding my small niggles turn into larger niggles and I dnf, or even worse, dns!
Let's make a prediction then. This is how I will go in the M55 age group:
Friday I run 4th in the 10k in 40:00.05. In the pouring rain. Third place laps me.
Sunday no big resurrection for me! I run 6th in the 5k in 20:20. First three break 19 minutes.
Monday in the Cross Country I jog it and still run 8th.
My Real Easter Story will be revealed by Tuesday. The above is a prediction.
Now for some speed
