CINDERS;did you take a wrong turning en route to end up in eastbourne.

Thanks Paul. Was really pleased. But now I've set a time to smash am obsessed! Always gone solo but considering joining local club to improve my times(I tend to get out there and plod round a set number of miles after a days work).
Mind you, didn't enjoy the after effects of PW-have never felt like that after a run before-really bad stomach ache, sickness and other unpleasantness-spent rest of the day in bed! Maybe it was just coincidence and I'd caught a bug, but think it must have been my body protesting at running at a faster pace than usual for much further than I'm used to. Anyone else suffered like this? Any way to avoid it? Suppose i just need to train more at speed-get my bod used to the punishment!
Well done to you too Paul. Maybe see you at the Folkestone 10.

suzie 2;i can assure you that joining a running club will get your times even lower.i myself am not a member(just enjoy running,not up for racing)but people i used to leave behind have joined a club over the last couple of years and now they leave me behind.
as for feeling bad,i think it would help if you got your body used to running the distance,pace,etc.you may also find that recovery will improve as well.
i was looking at folkestone or maidenhead on the same day.but decided to concentrate on training runs until end of the month.
have a 5 mile and then a 10 mile,10k in may before southend 1/2.
good luck at folkestone,what sort of time are you aiming for?
going by pw time,i would say around 74 mins.no pressure!

74mins would be fab! I've only really just got into racing and worrying about my times though. Have been running some years, but just a few miles after work to keep fit. So at the moment, I'm just setting times to beat.
Although, at the back of my mind is the desire to maintain 7min miles over a half marathon! But that's a 2 or 3 year goal. Re:folkestone, would be happy with 7.5min miles i.e. 75mins, but would love to do 7.25min miles(72.5 mins).We'll see...may not even make that race as have other committments which may get in the way.
