Yes Race Jase, quite unbelievable- great to see you progress over the years.
Strange race for me one a day of mishaps. Starting with no spoon to eat my porridge, then missing all of you at the start huddled in the changing tent hiding from the rain.
The race went to plan, holding 6:45 pace for the whole race more or less. Great shout outs from Minni, my family and a few club friends really lifted me. My left quad was in a bad way from 18 miles onwards and threatened to sieze once or twice. That really scarred me and made me much calmer and doubtful about the chances of a sub 3 finish. 1:28:45 at the halfway, and 42:XX for al 4* 10k splits.The last 3 miles were hell but strangely the pace hardly dropped, just the pain increased. Not the same elation I got last year at the end, just quiet satisfaction at a plan executed well. I only saw Lorenzo at the pub but had to get off with the family.
In the end I'm very pleased with a new PB by over a minute. I had a quiet target of 2:58 so close to my best hopes. Very pleased for you all- some great times and another amazing year on the 3:15 thread.
