Blimey, Pbs falling all over the place. Some excellent times by All. I think we sometimes do ourselves down so much!
AH... hmm.. not really sure about it. When I did my 9.20 pace for 3 miles, it felt OK, the last one a bit ough, but was actually 10 secs per mile quicker, as I was rushing to meet Mr Vole.
My HR.... seemed high all the way round, Ave HR was 171, compared to 166 and 169 at my last 2 10k's. First k was ave 160! And I was holding myself back too. RHR was OK that day. I am though, ahem, at a certain time in a mature Lady's Life, so do struggle with sleep at nights, and I do get hot easier than I used to.
Also, when I did my 9.20 pace, I had just done 2 miles at 10.40 pace with Mr Vole, and went straight into the 9.20 pace. Yesterday I did a 12 minute warm up, had to wait for the start gun (and it was 5 mins late too). Whats going on, any idea?
The apple and crumble was laaarvely..... with custard... no ice cream
Well done on your run too, Yvonne... do you think the crowds got in your way, perhaps? You certainly are close to that sub 2hr (My PB for a Half is 2.00.02.... yes, those 3 secs were all that stood before me and a sub 2 hr!)
