Thank's y'all.... I had a moan at my hubby last night as I didn't think he showed enough appreciation of my pb... he said its hard when every b***dy race I do is a pb... which made me realise of the 4 races I've done this year, all were pbs Even the two 20s which were training runs! Hopefully this augurs well for the next race. London!!
Freemers, that's a really fab run at Cranleigh! You must be full of confidence for VMLM. My next long runs is 20, attempting the second half at MP - that could go either way really. Not sure if the half was enough to make my legs too tired to do it next week or not. If it is awful, please remind me of the other 20 milers I've done!
Ruffles, sorry your half was so tough. wet + windy + hilly- no wonder there were inner gorrillas x (oh, wait, its a chimp... sorreee)
Superman, like the others say, your previous attempts are experience. I'm trying to come up with a meme at the moment of something that;s been running around my head for the past few days 'The only thing holding you back is your self-limiting beliefs' - so many people said to me variations of 'i could never run your time - I'm just not fit enough' - I did my first half marathon in 2hr 15 mins. The difference between 2:15 and 1:36 involves a bit of training, but ultimately belief that it was possible is what got my legs moving yesterday. You need to really believe in yourself that sub 3:30 is yours for the taking. We all believe it, but you need to have complete faith on the day, as there are going to be times during the run where you may doubt it, and that's where it can all fall apart if you don't have faith (I hope my ramblings make some sense).
