5.5 miles for me this evening with 3 @ tempo. Was attempting to run at MP (8:30) on feel but the splits came out at 7:45, 8:03, 7:57. Blowing a bit at the end but another promising and confidence building run
Baz - not nasty at all. I run a lot of the course when I go for a run at lunch (I still work in Nottingham) and its pan flat. Coming from Sheffield you obviously know what real hills are like. It's not a lake at the start/finish but the river Trent so you can only run down to Holme pierrepont so dont think that route would be an option. Nottingham is definitely a PB course, what's your current PB ?
Runningowl - how did you find out about the route for Nottingham ?
ET/Baz - I considered Nottingham HM as it's my home town race. I've been told that they arent announcing the course details until nearer the time as there is a lot of work taking place on the trams and I guess they may have to choose a route based on that.
Literin/ Sussex/ Bob - are any of you entering the Robin Hood marathon ? They arent releasing the route 'until later in the summer' which sounds a bit dodgy to me. I'm not sure why they cant work out the route for the full but have for the half, any ideas ?
