For those not yet up to IM
ST - thanks, I know you're right about the time, but....
just checked results, Chip time: 2:20:22! I'm so much happier with that!
wow, that is a real difference between your phone and a brill time for a first half
I've lost my watch and BFs stop watch only does up to an hour so I decided to use the stopwatch on my phone. But I've not used it that long ever so when it showed 00:40:00 I thought maybe it did up to an hour and then started again so thought it might of been 2:40 and as the last 4 miles were so hard, I thought it was very likely to be right.
BF cycle for awhile next to me on Portway and he was saying I was doing about 5.5mph and if I kept to the pace I could get 2:20/2:30 and when I slowed down I just didn't know anymore.
Well done Mikasa. Good effort!
Well done Mik! There's no limit now -
Thank you Iron Cat and Brit!
Still bit achy today. Can't believe how much my abs hurt! Must of been the last 3miles when I was trying to hold myself together...
Well done Mikasa - you're right about those last 3 miles, they were had - the wind didn't help much either!
Well done Mikasa, thanks for the running maximum time comments folks.
Took them to heart and did my 19 mile run in 3hrs 52 mins, much more like it!
I set up a mini aid station at the bus stop that I passed 4 times, worked perfectly and I must live in a nice area as no one stole my carrier bag of goodies. Had my first ever gel, urghhhhh horrid horrid things, thankfully it didn't upset my tummy.
MC my program says don't try to make up for missed miles just move on, so that's what I'd do in your situation. You'll do the 20 mile run so that should be enough. I didn't try and fit in my missed 18 miles, just moved on to the 19 when it was scheduled.
Oh Well done Alibear! Sounds like a great training run.
ST - I'll give you a leeway of 10% so you are still on track for the cake
Well done Mikasa and Rafiki on your race. Welcome home Razor.
Ali - well done, and a great idea to have a mini-aid station.
I kind of lost following my schedule around the time I went on holiday, however, I am kind of following the spirit of it
Well done for the racing gang and welcome back Razer I for one demand photo's.
ST something to think about when your building up to a marathon no matter how much you do the voice's in your head will always be saying you can do more. If your ill don't have kill yourelf before you get to the start line. Hope the man flu's better.
mind you, I'll be happy if I cross the line even a few seconds before you! I think you are quicker than me. We could swap over the roller boots when I get tired?
