Ali - nice to hear from you again !
Nell - cracking race indeed sir especially considering you seemed tired due to work the week before. And of course the enforced toilet breaks which, might I say, you appeared to deal with in quite a timely manner ! I'm guessing then that you will be following a Hanson's plan next time round ? By the sounds of it, you will get very close to beating the 3 hours if everything goes your way.
Stuart - where in the world are you these days ?
PS - did you get some trail shoes ? What's the reasoning for choosing a half marathon plan with 3 days running per week ?
One step forward and two back would describe my running at the moment. Just when I have a good run and think that I'm sorted an easy run turns into a right battle. It's been nearly 3 months now since the Long Tour of Bradwell so that race must be out of my legs now. So, I'm putting it down to the change in diet. I'm averaging about 2000 calories a day (trying to lose some weight) which should be enough in theory but, as someone mentioned before, there might not be enough carbs. I'm going to stick with it for a bit longer but am off to the shops at lunchtime to pick up some Omega 369 and Magnesium supplements to give me a bit of a boost.
