I did the Bristol Half Marathon yesterday, and was disappointed with my performance - felt pretty rough for most of it, and didn't reach my time goal of sub 2 hours. My friend who also did the Bristol with me, but felt fine wants us to do the Stroud Half (22nd October). I had been considering it, but wondered if it was too soon? I wouldn't want to do it and have another bad performance because I've overtrained/raced. Any advice?
Wondered if other people have been in the same boat and what they did...
I have a 10km race tomorrow night. I've been a bit under the weather recently - culminating in a really bad sore throat yesterday.(I feel a lot better today.)Considering that I'm probably not on top form, and that tomorrow is going to be sweltering - do you think I should still take part in the race?
I don't want to risk my health (and training for Bristol Half), but on the other hand I've been really looking forward to this race, and was hoping to use it to test my (still generally tortoise like) speed.
So, whatcha think - to race or not to race that is the question!
