Gutted for you Miggito Next time though you will nail it.
I suffered in the heat although fortunately managed to keep my pace fairly close to target all the way. I went through halfway a couple of minutes ahead of target which I paid for at 21 miles when I started to slow and couldn't do anything to get back on pace. Anyway I managed to keep running and finished with a whole THREE seconds to spare in 2:59:56
My last 200m attempt at a spring was far from pretty and I virtually colapsed after I went over the line which proved I had absolutely nothing left in the tank whatsoever.
I can't see Paul's posts for some reason, how did he get on?
Well three training days left for me and apart from my glute trying to spoil the party I am ready - I think!
Had a 10k race yesterday in 25mph winds and although I was 3 seconds slower around the same course as last year I managed to win my age cat and finish 9th overall out of 1250 entrants, so a good way to start the week for me as I have never won anything before.
I have just done a recovery run which felt good apart from left glute I have 12 x 200m tomorrow with 100m recoveries which I won't push too hard. Four miles on Wednesday and the a couple of short jogs on Thursday and Saturday.
Last massage on Thursday where I am sure he will use a magic wand and clear the glute problem but if he doesn't I will just have to block it out of my mind somehow.
I hope you are all fit and healthy this week and that we all achieve our goals.
