Sorry to hear Bramley 10 was a tough day, Jools. Lovely weather and nice course though, wasn't it?
I ended up doing just over 2:36 for the 20, which was roughly what I was aiming for. MP+10% ish for 17 miles, MP for the last 3 only. Really enjoyed the experience, helped by running with my LSR training partner for the first 15 miles, and it felt pretty comfortable right up to the end. Nice fast-ish, long, confidence-booster I thought.
But, weirdly, about 2 hours after the finish my left shin started hurting. It's actually red and slightly swollen today.WTF? All my usual niggles are fine too. So putting my feet up today and will ice it later, and pray to the running gods.
