No one yet seems to gave suggested being more aerodynamic (I say with tongue firmly in cheek)...anyone going to admit to shaving body hair in the race for a pb?! but tighter fitting clothes might help?
Can I also add a shameful advert for my own blog which, like some others, is exorbitantly unpopular (but also very new). I talk about races I enter, barefoot running, running books, thoughts on running form and technique, pro athletes, etc.
I'd love any coments about the content, advice on anything I speak about, or just to see another visitor look at it, ha!
Hi all, well done to everyone for your efforts yesterday at Belvoir! I managed to get myself round the 15 mile route in 1:51:27, surprised myself really as after 9.5 miles I felt like I understood what people mean when they say they hit 'the wall.' Apparently it was one of the less muddy years!! I can't imagine how bad some of the fields must have been in previous years. Felt sore straight after I'd wolfed down the soup and bread and a cuppa and then tried to stand - I felt like I imagine an 80 year old with bad arthritis might feel! Just my hamstrings and quads feeling it a bit now though...well done Ben for completing the 26, I'm full of admiration. 15 is the furthest I've ever run!
hi all, enjoyed the posts so far. I'm doing the 15 too, my first time, and looking forward to it. I've only done 15.5 as my longest run, so hoping my lesser mileage will equate to me being fresh as a nervous daisy on race day! belvoir is my first foray into cross country style racing, so slightly daunted about the great unknown. race well everyone!
