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?
