I think I may not have raced my half very hard then as I was back at training paces on the Tiesday after even though I ran close to my PB. Although Wednesday I felt very jaded. I have another half this Sunday, that's two weeks after my last half. Doubt I will properly race it, maybe first 3 or 4 miles at MP and pick up speed as I go.
Not really sure why I entered, other than I don't want to just train for 16 weeks, I want to get some events in. I have a couple of 17/18 mile events that I will use for slow runs over the next few weeks as well.
Why is the French for 'now' so long. At least the length of Marathon is the same!
That's good pacing Andrea, with the race adrenaline and other runners around you, keeping pace should be easier. Is there an easy week leading up to the half? I suppose I should look at the program
I run my easy runs to heart rate and run in the lanes around the villages east of Stevenage there's a couple of bumpy bits. I keep close to 80% of max. Last night the rain had stopped and it was warmer. Although I did get sprayed by the grit lorry
I've just looked at the handicap times and worked out what all the numbers mean. I finished 1 second behind you. I was suffering by then. That's my first attempt and there were sections where I wasn't sure where exactly to go next
