first big run in that kind of heat. factor 50 did the job well. vaseline over eyes was top notch...all this excellent preperation and I capitulated after mile 8.
sapped energy...got into a walking cycle and so mentally i was defeated. on the plus point chatted to some other fellow runners/walkers near the end all of whom were thoroughly nice and made the event for me. have to wait a little longer to get under that 2 hours.
decision made to stick to HMs in the cooler early spring/late autumn and 10k during the other times
enjoyed this forum over the past month, good banter and good excuse not to work, i will miss it
