sorry didn't get on here yesterday. did our local half. I did it last year as was a new race but they had greatly amended route this year. Lot of club mates running and helping with the organising. Arrived at hq in plenty of time. Dry but bit chilly. Had a few photos, met a couple people from work who were running. Started with lap and a bit round athletics track before setting off on roads . We were lapped!
Fairly undulating course. There had been some negativity in local press about roadclosures etc but we found generally people q supportive. Had bit of a stiff hip- that's a new niggle but Achilles held out. Saw hubby few times en route and youngest was dishing out jelly babies.
Finished in 2.11.18. However appears at one section we were turned slightly early. They realised and added a small loop but course still a tad short , awaited official decision. How ever it's 5 mins off so I'm still declaring it a pb!
Had awful nights sleep - how does that work?? Now off for caffeine before hobbling to work!
Bit of a strange day here, felt all out of sorts and had bit of a meltdown over next to nothing this morning. OH wasn't q sure what to do with me! Combination of tiredness and stress and hormones I reckon. Mum was having surgery to remove a skin cancer and we weren't sure how it would be. Seemed to go ok, she's back in 2 weeks to review.
Hope I feel better tomo as doing our local half. Looking forward to it but am really cross about an article in our local paper which was v negative about road closures etc etc. I can feel a strongly worded response coming on!!
