Well done, Muddy!
No, the hills weren't vertical.... but I'd say they were pretty relentless! They just seemed to go on forever!
I limped round in 2:18, which, given the injury to my left knee and the subsequent lack of training over the last three weeks, I was actually pretty pleased with. I'm in a fair amount of agony now, though!
Oh, and as it was my first HM, I set a PB!!!!
Coincidentally, I was chatting to someone on Sunday evening who had done the Royal Parks (she was still wearing her medal, too!) and she said she's really enjoyed it. She showed me the map - it looks really good.
Edit: erm, I meant the route looks really good, not the map. Although the map was quite good as well.
AW - Gossport or Poppy (Bexhill) or Barns Green
Grand Union Canal, Uxbridge.
Running clubs - try England athletics site - go along to a couple of clubs, chat them up and see what they have to offer.
Sorry, not much to offer in terms of information I'm afraid.
Lots of good racing in here recently. I ran my second half at the weekend, and was enormously pleased to go sub 2:30, knocking 10 minutes off my PB.
Next one is in 6 weeks, so need to get up and going quickly to get some training in for that. Sub 2:25 must be a target... Tried a little run last night - just 3 miles - and found that everything was still working, which was good news! Aiming to get out & do at least 6 this weekend.
already said it elsewhere but congrats on the PB HL.
My HM - both actually were pants. Very dismal and nowhere near target. I think the cold got the better of me and I wasn't sufficiently recovered for the second race.
I shall attempt another at some point in the future when I can train properly and be fit for the race. Right now it's xc season and I think I have a race every weekend between now and Feb.
