See you there! My first Striders 10K since I cannot remember when! :-)
I'm running with a youngster who's doing his first 10K.

Harry Summers?

I might run just depends on how much work I have on Saturday morning.

No! Harry ran sub 30 earlier in the year - twice I think - who can keep up with that!  :)

Conditions look good for Saturday. Min 6 degrees with max of 19.

Should be cool and fast on the course.

In any case I got stood up - coach told him not to race until he's fully fit - shame as we would have been battling most of the way. What a great day for running though (now the hands have warmed up again) :-)

Thanks to Barbara and all the helpers for some great organisation and food :-)

what a magnificent but cool morning. A huge congratulations and thanks to the Sydney Striders for an excellent race. The organisation was great and food at the end was well worth the hurt of the race. I raced a PB and ran sub 40mins for the first time. Heaps of Coolrunners out there. Was awesome to be back : )

yep, great morning. Brisk to start with but a great course to get warmed up on quickly. PB for me, very happy 1 week out from C2S. Thanks to the wonderful organisation of Barbara and all the striders.....also how about the breakfast. Great way to start the weekend.

Pretty chilly one this morning. My thumbs were numb even at the end.
Hard work in training has started to pay off with a 35:51 - 10k PB and on a hilly course to boot.
Hoping for a good run at C2S, but feel I could still be 30s shy of breaking 50.

It was 11 degrees when I left the house and 4 when I got to Lane Cove - hands were freezing but the rest warmed up pretty quick

Managed a pb of I think 47:23 (might even be 22!)

30 secs quicker than last month which I was pleased with on the hilly course - all going in the right direction.

Sub 47 at North Head next month?. Looking forward to something in the high 60's next week too.

Fantastic organisation as always - these 10k's are great fun.

Cheers

Congrats Sub50.I hear it was ~36:40. Does that mean that Sub50 is an outside chance next week?

can but try but I am nervous about Sloth's comment. Excel tells me it is a mathematical possibility  :) but I think low 50s is more likely.

I did 40:20 on this course in '99 - aimed to break it today.
Though I would need to do about 20:20, 20:00 split.

K Splits were:
3:59, 3:56, 3:57, 4:12, 4:24 (20:28)
4:08, 4:09, 4:14, 4:17, 4:04 (20:52) for 41:20

Didn't have it! First half seemed about right, 4th K a little slow, but
the 6th K was particularly disappointing and it was just downhill from there.
Wow, If I can +ve split here, I can +ve split anywhere!
and it makes sub 60 for C2S seem less likely (but if I want it enough...?).

Good to see Spider-man (nando) back plus all the usual friendly faces.

My prediction is based on a LC 10k to C2S conversion factor I found on coolrunning some time ago.
1.41 was the factor.
Of course, I can't vouch for it's accuracy. I'm hoping it is closer to 1.39 in reality - that should see me there by 10s!
I figure If I can get myself in contention at 10-11k, then it is just hang on for the roller coaster down the hill and hope momentum carries me along Campbell pde to the finish in time.

Anyone with with recent experience like to comment on this factor. I have not run LC prior to C2S for a couple of years. Would love to hear from some of the runner going under 50mins.
Thanks

I think it's very accurate - as I recall it was a few years ago with me at sub 50 - and this year it is spot-on the times  indicated by other training, last year's performance and a 9km time trial over the course which I ran last week  :)

Thanks sloth! (Predicts 58:17 excellent)

Problem is my performances show that the longer a race is the slower I am compared to equivalent performances. A happy way to put this would be the shorter the race the faster I am compared to equivalent performance. This year I have run sub 15 for 4k, just over 32 for 8, just under 40 for 10 but the fastest half marathon I can manage is 97. (Striders give me a handicap for the half marathon I cant get within 5 minutes each year, 'cause they base it on 10k times!)

The neujahrsmarathon calculator gives me 59.43 for 14km on my *best* 10k and Half this year.  The "16 minute rule" gets me there.

So I think its going to be close, but its going to be tough...but I want it...but its going to be tough...

I ran sub 50 at C2S last year and my conversion factor from Lane Cove was 1.424.

Don't think that's accurate Matt - You and I were neck and neck in 10K races and I think you must have just had a bad day on C2S day - you're faster than 50 - 48 something at least :-)
