Quick half mara report

Eden project is- multi-terrain and hilly!

Paced my friend and all was good, I jogged on the spot to let her catch up a few times and pushed her up a few hills. Was doing really well. Only hiccup was about 5mile in I went a little over a rock and felt my hip go. I carried on the same with little problems until mile 10. I'm not sure what happened but I think I lost the plot... A lot was psychological I'm sure, because I wasn't tired and hip wasng THaT sore, but suddenly my mate wanted to sprint and I just couldn't. I hobbled on and walked once. Finished in 2:04. Was pretty gutted that without my silliness at the end, the hilly course would have been a sub 2:04.... But what can you do.

Could have done better : not lost the plot?!? Was it because I usually hit a wall there???? Need to do more than 13 mile in training I think.

Things that went well: paced my mate to a time she is pleased with. If I'm 2;04 on that course, I'll defo sub 2 on a flat one now!

Opinions on what you think might have happened/ how to improve?

Mrs Noel- I did the eden project HM today. My 70.3 is in exmoore next July.

Pretty knew to tri really, started mid last year, the two I have been in I've come top 5. Officially have the bug! Im not built for running and struggle for good times even if I'm fit. A lot used to be joint pains and now it's just mental. I have a bigger background in cycling, have done it recreationally since I was tiny.

Goal is to be competitive in my age group and see what happens. I'm 24 so have a few years left in me to learn.

One thing really annoying me though- when practicing dismounting off my bike when slipping my feet of the shoes. Is that the because my bike is small, the shoe can hit the ground and stop the bike dead when I swing my leg over.......

LMH- I think you are right, I don't know what's wrong with me. I was absolutely fine. Pep talking my friend up the hills. Then I hit mile 10- where I always have problems and my body just freaked out. So frustrating!

Mrs Noel- sounds like a good day! Nice PB!

40mins- yea I saw that and was tempted. All goals are aimed towards next years half ironman, would love to run a comfy HM before then.

LMH- not conventional at all! And completely against my advice. But she didn't have any confidence distance wise and it was a bit of a late entry. She did fine in the end, just needed a bit of encouragement towards the end. I'm not racing on Sunday, I'm just there to keep her legs moving

Ale: sounds like sudden progress. How do you feel about it?

Hey,

What: 10min jog, 15 min bike, 20 min swim. Going to run 10-11 miles tonight with my mate as I said I would help her run the HM on Sunday in Eden project.

Why: it's not that much anymore! Endurance alert!

Lyrics: nope

LMH- understood. I'm not pushing anything. Just aiming to get faster and what happens body wise just happens- no pressure
