It was another busy weekend of races up and down the UK, from the Great Women’s 10K in Glasgow to the Sheffield half marathon. Internationally, there was the Prague marathon and the St Kitts and Nevis marathon (anyone run that one?).

I was down in Ivybridge on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon for a rare evening race. The Ivybridge 10K was run in memory of former local club member Barrie Symonds, who passed away due to illness on the day of last year’s race.

For me, it was a case of getting back in the saddle after a disappointing run in the London marathon last month. Even three weeks on I was moving a little gingerly as I warmed up, but despite the hilly course and windy conditions I managed a solid run – finishing in 36min 46sec, within a minute of my PB.

So how did everyone else get on? Perhaps you were burning things up in an early season track race? Or enjoying a solitary run through some beautiful countryside somewhere? Or struggling along in agony, wondering when the fabled runner’s high is ever going to kick in?

As ever, let us know your weekend tales in the comments below.
