Telstar - well done, it was tough, the conditions made it very tough. It was a fast course but my quads were hurting from about 8 miles in. I heeded the warnings and tried not to get too greedy early on. This proved to be the right tactic as I paced it perfect and held on for a 2.58. (4 min pb) with no slow down and a 5 second positive split. From 35k to 40k was my quickest. Despite the agony of my quads I kept pushing to the end and was very happy. Now I feel like I've been beaten up!
Marathon training seems to improve all my distances .... but my priority is running the marathon . It's my favorite ..... its the Big Fight, The Main Event. I've some short races coming up in May and June and I'll use up the mojo from this spring campaign. Then I'll have to think about the plan for the dirty Dam. That's gonna be pure FILTH
