I did the half too. Came in at 1:43 which is a new PB for me...beating my old one by 5mins.
I enjoyed it but found the home run from the lagoon to the finish line tough going.....felt like I had diving boots on....I just had no spring in my step. For one reason or another my training regime has taken a bit of a hit this last fortnight and I think I paid for it.
Still....the sun was shining and I got a new PB. Mustn't grumble.
Did 6 miles today from Hove Lagoon to the Brighton pier and back.....first run for me since last Saturday
My lad got a new bike for Christmas and really wanted to come with me (he's got gears now so can make some decent progress). It was great heading East but my god the wind on the way back was ferocious.....felt really sorry for my boy really struggling to ride into a gale....I ended up running and pushing him along most of the way home. Phew!! Quite a workout.
Also got to model my new bright red Asics running top. Felt quite self conscious as I normally run in stealthy black. My face matched the top when I got home.
Still recovering from the Hernia repair, and just found out I'm going in for an operation on my eye in early January now. Look out for me in the marathon with my white stick!
