Well done everyone. It was a brilliant day wasn't it? Thought the organisation good, crowds - especially in blackmore - really encouraging, weather glorious - hill at end not needed! Traffic not as bad as I thought it was going to be having never done a hm with traffic. I kept overtaking the same people walk/running so they must have been sprinting past me at some point!
I did 2.15 which was a pb - was hoping to do 2.11 and was 2 mins under that until about mile 9 (not sure about that) and then obviously lost the plot! My daughter did 2.02 with a pulled knee muscle from mile 12 - she was gutted as well as in pain as was hoping to crack the 2 hrs. However, good time nevertheless. Always something to aim for!
We're doing the asics 10k in July in London and hopefully the Royal Parks hm in October. So, speed training for me till July!
Well done again - its such a buzz at the end isn't it.
