Sorry to hear you've got a cold Barking, does that mean no race on Sunday?
I'm alrightish...one of the dancers on the show I am doing has a cold so am trying not to catch it. So mad at work and tired that I'm sure I am on the cusp of getting something.
not a cold....unfortunatly.....would run with that bloomin patients sharing bugs probably
still hoping will be ok, but the chances are slim and slippingwas sooooooo looking forward to it
Oh no ((((( Barking ))))))
Hope you feel better v v soon.
Well done PJ - I hear that you flew!
Was pretty impressed with the organisation of this one- start on time, lots of marshalls, water stop had plenty even for us slowbies at the back, nice glass thingmy instead of a medal
Shame that there were not any KM markers, however!
Thanks Barking. How did ya do? God it was so hot wasn't it? I was impressed with the goody bag, much better than last year. Good touch having a 10% voucher for Run and Become. Shame no KM markers. Found it hard to pace myself and suffered for it on the hill of doom!
Will be back again next year.
I curse that hill...
There was a lady on a disability scooter going up that hill and I was close to asking her for a lift.... And what are they doing putting a park bench halfway up the hill.... Having a laugh!!!!
Its for a quickie if there is noone around to tease you for stopping, Nam
I walked the hill - all of it
Now I have a headache
It would seem so!
Found the hill so so so tough today. I run up it every so often in my normal training runs and have never found it that hard. Guess it must have been a combo of the heat and pushing myself before hitting the hill.
It was far too hot
I have run similar type hills, albeit very slowly, but I wasnt even going to attempt it today
In answer to your previous question - not too bad considering the heat. I think I put on here I wanted 35mins, think probably be around 36. Not bad with it being hot and being ill last week. Nearly threw up tho!
Will be back - and hopefully not as hot next year!
Have you replaced the salt n stuff you would have sweated out Barking?
My mum got me these really random sports drink sachets called "Replenish" from America. They are really good, they have sodium and potassium in them and come in yummy flavours. I take them after long runs and stuff. I'm running out of them though, wish they did them over here.
PJ - not sure if you've seen my last entry on Porthkerry thread. If you still have Barry Gem mag I would love to have it. Are you coming to the Fetch 1 mile Speed Trial, perhaps you could bring it then?
Clearly didn't run this race today, but did Tewkesbury Half. Was a scorcher there too, so well off the pace but a nice run nonetheless, although am knackered now
