October 2009 – Willett Arms 4 mile Time Trial

Teresa Grist blitzs it!

With the nights drawing in, the time trial reverted to the street-lit Willett Arms route, which we shall now be using until springtime. Twenty-two runners took part and this included two time trial debutants – Annie Dougall and Bev McLaughlin. Sadly not included was John Hutchings. Any hope he had of winning three time trials in a row were dashed due to being sidelined with sore shins.

The outstanding performance of the night came from Teresa Grist who comfortably went sub-40 minutes for the first time. Teresa had run half marathon distance for the first time ever in the New Forest the previous Sunday, and had in fact finished that race with a slightly swollen ankle after a drinks station skirmish. Her powers of recovery are remarkable though as, by Thursday, she was able to make a whopping six minute time gain, finishing well ahead of the rest of the field. Honourable mentions also go to Phil Burgess, Kevin Elliott, Barbara Frampton and Lynn Hutchings (fastest lady) who all made gains of around two minutes. Our two debutants both gave great accounts of themselves as they took up the podium positions, with Annie Dougall going sub-30 minutes on her first time out, and Bev McLaughlin recording an ‘actual’ time a few seconds quicker than Teresa.  The fastest men out there were Craig Dixon, Guy Thompson, and Graham Whiffen who all went sub-26 minutes, with Guy fastest of all on 25-flat.

Our timekeepers/recorders on the night were Paul Grist and Ian & Wendy Kennedy. Full results for the time trial were:
