Opted out of a run last night as it was frosty but headed out at half 6 this morning and did 10km before work. Frost had gone by this morning, although still cold. Just plodding along these days nd have no races planned for a while. Just happy to be running, dare I say it........pain free.
Thanks for all your comments and encouragement. Happy enough with my time at GNR. Great crowds and atmosphere and amazing organisation at the finish line too. Very warm and humid but I enjoyed the experience.
DS, I started in Zone B and had no problems with congestion. Struggled to slow myself down to a sensible pace. My 5k splits were 21.41, 23.17, 23.08 and 24.00. Getting gradually slower but all in all a fantastic weekend.
Some great training going on and big races planned for you all.
Thanks everyone. Did a 6mile run before work today and right shin was sore but then eased, although the pain moved to my foot after that. Just going to enjoy GNR and make sure I finish. If it all goes ok I am hoping for 1hr 40ish which annoys me as my PB is 1hr 25 and I would reaaly like to go sub 1hr 30 but realise Im not in that kind of shape at the moment.
