TR - sounds like a fair old effort you put out there. As always a very modest outlook too. Is the half this weekend coming?
Old No7 - nice pb, defo on for a sub 2.50, but I'm shit at the marathon so don't take my word as gospel,lol
DanA - glad you're back running, what was the issue mate?
I've entered Fleet half in March, bit of a trek from the frozen tundra of the north up here but it's a good race and I fancy a fast spring half and a weekend away down South will be good. Run it once before and enjoyed it and ive exhausted Reading.
Starting to consider some targets next year for the first time. Think it's a case of focus on xc season and then see where I am come Fleet half. BM in Jan will be a good fitness indicator. Then fell season before aiming at a proper half time next autumn, hopefully down around 1.16-1.17, good target to have. (Maybe Great Eastern half - think PP ran that this year didnt he) Wouldn't mind addressing 10k time from next spring too.
No marathon until 2015 after my course, maybe Abingdon, Berlin, New York or something.....
