Glad you are back talking race plans Howard. Hope you are feeling better. Shame you missed the final.
have done 3 negative splits, this year by nearly ten minutes, think that shows I didn't go so fast in first half ... But last year felt terrible at 18 and couldn't face that again, this year felt bit crap at 22 but Zoe Ball happened to catch my eye and shout Go Susan! Looking strong and that was it sprinted the last 3 miles overtaking guy from our club who had been miles head of us who really faded in last 3 miles ...
Aaahh.... Running ... I remember that! It's been about 8 weeks
Sounds horrid Howard. Sorry you are missing the final. Having missed pretty much everything fun in the last 8 weeks I feel your pain. What makes you think you will never run again? Hope you feel better soon. I feel sore and achey
