Hi Superman. I so agree with you about the joys of running again after injury. Glad you are back in the game!
Mmmm Cadbury's flake. Chocolate is my reason for running.
Yes HC 10k and half shared part of the route and then split causing confusion and some ran the short lap twice. I was directed the wrong way but quickly realised the mistake and turned back. I gave feedback to the director who I know and he said he would be dropping the 10k next year.
I ran 21.5 miles on Tues as practice running on tired legs for my back to back 30 milers in May. Average pace 8:42. Recovery 5 miles today, faster than intended at 8:58mm.
Leaving my watch and trainers at home next week and concentrating on skiing, eating and drinking. French Alps chalet holiday. Woo Hoo.
Few issues at HC half. Chip times were all messed up but gun time accurate. Now been corrected and agrees with my watch. They also had a 10k which started 15 mins before the half but we caught up the tailenders so had to weave in and out of chatting joggers out for a jolly.
My High 5 nutrition race pack has 8 energy gels, 3 iso gels, 4 energy source powders, 1 extreme energy powder, 1 protein recovery powder, an energy bar, 4 sports drink tabs and a drinks bottle. All good stuff.
Hi Superman, great to have you home. Sounds like quite a journey. I am looking forward to playing in all that snow you had to drive through. Ha ha. Counting the days.
I ran the Hampton Court Half not Brighton. Some off roading with a really slippery muddy section just before the end. Started at the pace I could have sustained last year but after 7 miles began to slow down. Need to synchronise my head with my legs and lungs!! Finished in 1:38:26 but it wasn't pretty. Came 1st VW55 and won a High 5 nutrition pack so not all bad.
Well done on your running in the Alps. I really struggled last year so am not planning on running at all while I am there. Hot chocolate and cake o'clock is the best!
