My HM became a 10k, very warm but comfortable. I did run 2 mins walk 1 minute. On mile six my back/hip muscles tightened up then spasmed so had to walk, Got to the 10k timing mat and then the water station where I made the decision to stop. It would have taken me another 1.5 to 2 hours to walk back to the finish and no guarantee that I would not have further problems, I was not even walking properly. So sweeper bus back.
I am happy that I did miles in 12.36,12.54, 12.48, 13.08, and 13.06 before the last one with more walking in it.
I saw a vehicle with the new latest number plate, 14. I was cycling through a posh town and surprisingly the vehicle was not posh at all - a massive tractor. I blame my ability to spot such things down to knowing my husband (petrolhead) for so long.
