Marigold's got to be the run of the day across the board....what's he going to do now?
More success stories than failures, especially from the guys in my timescale. Can't remember everyone but HR, you've got to be pleased with that well run. Also Old No7, who together with Ode, I set off with: really well done mate and what a set of splits, just negative...awesome.
Of all the things that could go wrong in my head, standing by the road after mile 2 wasn't one of them. After a about 1.5mi I developed a slight ache/spasm in the top of my right glute which quickly tightened and went down my leg into my calf. I could only just stand and could quite easily have just laid down on the pavement. Anyway, borrowed a phone to speak with my wife saying I'd stopped. Then slowly hobbled off in the direction of help when things loosened up a bit so started jogging. Made another call to say I'd finish. Came in with about 1:44/1:26 splits....disaster.
