Good work Wardi. I am jealous of the weather and curry, though I will force myself down the pub for a couple later.
CD - well raced in less than ideal conditions. I did the Epsom 10 a few years back and loved the use of the Jockey weighing room for runners to get changed in - it isn't often we find ourself in a room where we would look overweight.
Good 20m TJB - are you racing again soon?
I followed the general trend of slogging around about 14 miles as CW, TR, Jools, CC2 in ankle deep puddles and along muddy trails.
This thread moves so fast - both the runners and the posters. I wanted to say a big well done to DrD for the sub 75 in Gosport - just imagine how fast you would have been without the massive beer belly? The other highlight last Sunday was Dachs 10k time - amazing!
Just gentle running this week. Got a few niggles which I hope clear up ready to build a base in Dec.
It was nice to chat with DrD at start of Gosport - I am blaming my bushy beard costing me a PB
My warm up involved getting wet and cold so almost wish I had sat in car. Coupled with the fact my ankle has been giving me problems all week I questioned why I was there.
I set off hoping for about 83 minutes but somehow the pace felt pretty comfortable and so I ended up going a bit quicker. I managed to finish in 81:30 so happy with result. If I had known I was anywhere near that shape I would have gone a bit harder and tried for a PB. This year I have managed to run my 3 fastest half marathons which after 20 years of running I am pretty pleased with - just got to convert it to a decent marathon next year.
oh and I think I saw you TR but it was near the cone turn round point and I wasn't up for shouting across a random hello.
