I went on at the doctor so much that they ended up agreeing to me going out running, did a total of 28km over the weekend, so feeling more confident now about the half.
Sorry, missed this. Hope your race went well. I managed the half in just over 2 hours, which I’m very happy about for a first attempt and all the other stuff going on over the last month.Good luck.
My 10 miler on sunday (Brampton-Carlisle).
Had my last bit of training last night.... 5 x 350mtr hills up the side of the A45 near to Costco.
14 weeks hard work done now. First time i've ever trained in earnest for a non-fell race. Hopefully a pb on the cards.
Good effort thatNice one.
I managed 62:40 which was mission accomplished. I knew with the training behind me i was probably capable of running in the 62's.
Slight twinge of disappointment as i was well under 62min pace at halfway, but there was a pretty ferocious headwind all the way (it was a linear race)
Also smashed my 10km pb into a cocked hat during the race as well (went through 10km in 38.07)
Yeah but about the wind assistance?4th at Teignmouth Parkrun this morning (20.42). The course is normally on the Prom which is pancake flat and fast but due to storm repair work on the seafront taking place they switched it to the alternate route in a nearby park.. which has 580 foot elevation in a 5k run !
