Jamil - I will not be steep if it goes on for that long. This race is not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Bill from my club will be running slow, so you can join us. We can chat and take our minds of the race. I bet you finish before me.

Oooooouuuucccchhhh! That was a beast!

 Massive respect to the air cadets who were awesome today.

 I really enjoyed this run, taxing at times, nice undulating( I call it a hill) lol. but really enjoyable, a good practise for the london.  does anyone know when the results will be published. 1.59.40( own watch) . I broke the 2 hrs( can anyone who is a seasoned runner at the london ) tell me the time and how they do at the london.

 Were you the chap that went off first? 1:59:40 - take my hat off to you Sir.!

 I was aiming for 2:35 and did 2:32:23 so I am (very) happy).

 My really ache now though...

 Results should be in later today but they had a screen in the back of the van showing chip times.

 Well done everyone.

God that was a hard race, thou I am very pleased with my slow time of 3.14.13. I did run very, very slow up that big hill.

Jamil - I hope you finished ok. That was a tough race, FLM should be a walk in the park after today.

Big thank you to the race organisers and the mashalls. You were all brilliant.

Well done Tracey, that ws a tough one for sure.

Agree, the race was very well organised. Cadets did particulary well. Would have liked a few more mile markers but that is just being picky. Really enjoyed it.

Is anyone doing the Paddock Wood half? It's flat!


22/03/2009 at 19:27

2 hours 39 minutes for me.

Very pleased but my legs aren't at their best at the moment. Thanks to the Air Cadets for a great job.

The hill was as daunting as expected but we didn't walk. Had a Garmin so the lack of mile markers wasn't a big issue for me but a few other people commented at the end.

22/03/2009 at 19:35
2:39 for me also. Which I'm very pleased about because my last 19 mile training run took 3.20 (along nearly the same rout). Just shows what a few other runners around can do for your motivation. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Kevin - I think the race description of flat/undulating is a bit wrong.
22/03/2009 at 20:13

HI ALL- I SURVIVED...just!! got smacked down with CRAMPS at 15 mile mark so really struggled the last 2 mles, but completed in 2hr 30ish waiting for official times.

TRACEY- Thanks again without yor support I would have struggled EVEN more!!!

DEFO VERY Undulating & HILLY !

NEXT Target is Oakley 20 in Bedford ( again undulating ) 5th March!!!!!

Atleast on 11th I am going SPAIN for 5 days may do last minute runs there .. dought it!!

22/03/2009 at 20:24
