This is my favourite race, the conditions were hard work for the last 4 miles. Amazing organisation and truly outstanding marshals. Never known so many marshals for a half marathon. Had to laugh when I got the tshirt, gave it to my wife.
SaintJason - Apologies for missing your earlier post, the thread you did was great mate and you got a great time, found it recently and starting reading it again along with the sub 2.30. I do live in the glorious northwest, Warrington for my sins. I have entered Helsby and wilmslow. Why did they change your profile picture?
Dull Napolean - My max HR is 195,my mate did not believe me for ages and thought I was a freak. I did read somewhere a cross country skier has a MHR of 205.
Did 8 miles tonight, did it over a undulating course. Thought I would look at where I am in regards to my MP. Did 2 miles at steady state (75% - 80%HR) 7.27,7.21 and 2 Miles at Current MP 7.15, 7.11. Quite happy with that and felt good. Love running at just under Aerobic threshold.
Odeon 1085, Mr Boat & Brian - Thanks for the welcome and advice.
I will see how I get on later. I know I may be not near MP pace at the moment but want to include them early doors in my training so I get a good fee for MP session every week and can monitor how it is going.
