Overdone it?

That's great stuff, Pete. Huge pb over that distance. 

Skinny, I'd rather hold the cell on merit so hope you get to race full beans. I'm sure Charlie will have a good crack at my time based on last weekend and the course he is racing. 

my whole house is ill. To an extent, I would almost be satisfied if I came down with something! Official result was 1.25.34 so back 12 seconds off pb. Came 109th and 15th in category. That's ok in a race of 7000 or so that was also British and English half champs.

ok thanks, looks like I have until midnight to enter. As it's a 9am start I think I'd need to stay night before really, at least somewhere an hour up m6. Will that that discussion later on.

Alehouse, thanks. I am very tempted. I'm pretty confident on a flat course I could sit at 6.25 pace happily. I just need to look at logistics. Dependant on what part of Manchester it is based it is anything from a 90 min drive which is fine to 2 hours.

1.25.33 on watch so 9 seconds off a pb. Course was far hillier than I had anticipated. Average pace was 6.29 which even accounting for the usual over distance in big city races, I was sure I'd done enough. 

Not read back as yet so will post fully later.

Andy ran it at MP as he is doing Yorkshire Mara in a few weeks. He came in 1.29.22 so I think he got a bit carried away later on when he spied the sub 90 pacer ahead.

Yes I guess it's not terrible, however I had 6.29 as average pace and was sure even with some over distance measuring that was enough to on so I was particularly disappointed as I approached the line. 

Yes, mile 3 I threw my toys out the pram as I wasn'texpecting that much sharp climbing. I was ready to just push back to mp and save the recovery time. 

I feel slightly unfulfilled so will be looking at logistics later for Manchester Half. 

You are correct though, Charlie.  my 4 halfs this year have been my 4 fastest.  Only Cardiff in March was glad but that was hindered by a huge storm. Feel I need to run a flat half.

Yes it was very helpful indeed, Lit.  Nobody else had though of saying that.

Miserable fail in my pb quest with 1.25.33 on watch. I really struggled with the early climbing and it was only at mile 8 I began to settle and feel like I could finish the race. The early miles I felt like I was climbing the hills to one of those villages you see built gradually up a mountain. I didn't think Nottingham could go so high. 375 foot of climbing is the same as Coventry half. Not sure I can be arsed going to Manchester in 3 weeks. 

At the finish a marshal must have taken pity on my sorry state and handed me two golden tickets for free entry next year. As Andy had for us free entry this year, I shared with him.

Tommy is our official intermediary for Bob related matters?

It does appear though that Bob's internet connection is directly linked to whether he is running or not

I seem to recall you bouncing back pretty quickly for London, Mace so hopefully you can again.

I know you guys sometimes question my gadget purchasing, however the thumper maxi pro is one of the best purchases I've ever made. It's more than washed its own face silly in saved physio sessions. I use it for 30 mins or so about 5 times a week and it makes such a difference. I would recommend trying it out by getting from Amazon and if you don't like after 3 weeks send it back.

hmm, that might not suit Charlie as he is in a far bigger race. How would we know the races started exactly same time?

Are you gunning for my current time, or waiting to see if I improve it and then gun for that time? It will be a tense morning.

I'm honoured by your optimism, Skinny. Whilst I'm unquestionably in better shape than when I set my pb in February I am also conscious that I'm due a bad day and last year that came in my target race in the Cardiff half.

If it goes to plan it'll be 1.24.59 or below.

Tommy, where have you seen that? I'm not and haven't suggested to the club that I was. Maybe they have just banged my name down to make up a c team in case enough turn up.
