I did the Fleet Pre-London Half Marathon today. Target was to do it in under 2:00 hours, and I just got a text saying my time was 01:51:33! I'm well pleased. Although this is not my all time half marathon PB, it wasn't really what I was aiming for today anyway so it's all good. It was a very well organised race, and a lovely day to top it all off.
Next week I hope to be hitting the 20M mark in the LSR. Ooooh!!
Hi Kathy, I didn't do a half marahton race either! I was meant to do one on Saturday with all the best of intentions but I got my dates mixed up (since most races are on Sunday anyway!) and ended up doing Parkrun on Saturday thinking the race was today! Oh well. I did go out today for a 15-mile LSR so it's all okay, and I ended the week with a total mileage of 34.
Hi Stylis - I hope everything goes well with your trip to India. Under the circumstances it is completely understandable that your training has to take a backseat.
I think I will use my Saturday HM in the same you're using yours - as a 'pacer' than anything else. Certainly not a PB or anything like that. My March HM I would definitely want to do sub2:00 but with this one I will just do it in marathon pace, as you will do Stylish.
I've already put in all my mileage for the weekly runs (5M Tue, 7M Wed and just did 4M now) so all that remains is rest tomorrow and the HM on Saturday (book-ended by a 1M on each end). Exciting!
