Good luck for tomorrow, then, Tracey. Is Bernard running it too, or is he only doing Beachy?
Mick - yes the Welsh are great talkers. Funnily enough, the English that move into Wales also seem to become great talkers. Something in the water.
That sounded like an enjoyable and rewarding race. Were you perhaps 2nd Over 60?
Ceal - I can well imagine you standing over a range cooker! In fact, when I asked about the kitchen I thought "I bet she's got an Aga or a Rayburn"
2 and a half hour run today, the longest of the training runs (and extended from the 2 hours it was supposed to be in the schedule, because I was fretting that none of my training runs would come anywhere near 13.1 miles). The first 2 hours was supposed to be at LSR speed, and the last half-hour at half-mara pace. In practice this worked out as 13:29, 13:44, 14:08, 14:05 and (the last, faster, one) 12:57. All in minute-milings, of course. I am hoping the half mara will be rather faster. The race will certainly be less undulating than today's run. The distance totalled nearly 11 miles, so at least I feel fairly confident that I can manage 13.1.
