HeOw - my first race was a HM in Sept 2011 too!

Oh I bet it was still bloody faster than I am aiming to get tomorrow!? What HM was it?
well... it might have been, but I can only dream of beating it by 17 minutes like you're planning to do! It was the Robin Hood half in Nottingham.
Good luck to everyone running tomorrow, I hope, infact I expect a few PBs on here tomorrow.
Good luck Wrexham Half racers, looking forward to hearing all about it later.
My son is also racing today,Brighton Half, his 2nd half, marathon, he is hoping for around 1.30 which will be a 19 min pb, he has improved somewhat in a year, this time last year he couldnt keep up with me , now I got no fecking chance of keeping up with him
Lit I am booked in for 2 x Pilates classes this week
Morning - perfect weather for a half marathon this morning. Good luck again to all racing this morning. Bit hungover here, but ok to run I think. Not going to do my scheduled 16mi with 12@MP though, not up to that, so going to switch things round a bit. Will run Tuesday's 9 mi today, then the 16 with MP tomorrow, Tuesday rest, and swap Wednesday's and Friday's VO2 and MLR session.
Hope all the racers were successful. Looking forward to the reports 15W: 16 with 12 @ MP on a school night . I think that would kill me off for the rest of the week. Oh, I forgot ... you have youth on your side so you should get away with it . I need all the sleep I can get and then some!22 miles d&d. Rather unspectacular I must say. A little under 9mm, 70% of max HR and pretty much where I want to be in terms of aerobic fitness at this stage. 66 miles for the week
I've just done 21 miles in the beautiful sunshine, to replace the long run I missed a couple of weeks ago. Didn't bother with the MP either (because I'm going to bring next week's VO2 intervals forward to Tuesday to recover in time for Sunday's race) except a little bit, by accident. So: longest run ever of 21 miles done in 2:50, and I even managed to gulp down a SiS go gel in three sticky, sickly gulps at mile 12, just for practice. Mark, I'm jealous of the shorts -- it was definitely the warmest it's been so far in my training this year and I was regretting not ditching the tights!
Think I was inpsired by the sunshine and all the people on here racing today, as it was really hard to hold myself back to a sensible pace. Am looking forward to hearing how they got on.
Looks like I am the first racer back...mind you I was only racing 10 miles !!.Dead chuffed course PB by 2 mins 1.17.14 ..pity it was so sodding windy I could have done better, plenty of hills too...see if you can spot them..7.35..7.32..7.27.....then up...8.12. .7.21..7.36..climbing up again 7.47..7.48..8.17..nice flat finish twice round a track.. 7.18..
Got my half in 2 weeks on a flatter course than today's 10 so hoping to get shot of those plus 8 min miles ..
Nice long runs mark, chick and Lit, Lit I don't mind the sis gels at all they are the easiest of all of them to swallow
15w at least you aren't giving up completely today running any distance with a hang over is no fun !!
Good running chick/mark/lit - I'm still debating whether to go beyond 20 miles next week.
14m easy for me today. Colder than I had expected, so glad I didn't ditch the extra layer. I was comfortable throughout the run. Recovery week over.
Also ran home with my 6yo son after his basketball tournament, beaming from ear to ear. I'm going to have to work on my pace, otherwise he's going to be leaving me behind by the time he's seven!!! It was a short run, but my most enjoyable!
Ooh, well done NN. How did your son do at Brighton?
Ten, just lengthen your stride, then he won't be able to keep up till he's at least 13!
Congratulations Night Nurse!!!!!!!
Stonking time with a strong finish - gotta love that!
Lit my son did 1.33 a 25 min pb lol. I miscalculated earlier..he did 1.58 in his first one ...he is a bit disappointed but like everywhere they suffered headwinds..still seems damn fast to me ,
nice 14 Ten, yes its chilly today
Well, that's still a massive PB! Don't think I'll ever get a 25 minute PB unless I start doing ultras.
Not chilly here, it's a whopping 9 degrees!
Yay! Congratulations, Mennania!
Today seems to be going well so far...
