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.
Well toughed out Lev and nice photo with Yuki. So close LR1976 but very well run given the tough course and conditions. Another amazing run by MsPP - I don't know what you are both getting up to but it seems to be working !!
TR - I am running Gosport as well but suspect it will be more a hard run than a full on race. It will be nice to say hello at the start. Nice training from you over the last couple of days.
I managed a cold, wet 9 miles tonight. Hope to add a speed session this week as well now the cold and post marathon tiredness has gone... oh and the X-Talon 212s arrived so will find some muddy trails at weekend.
