Well …. Not one to recommend.
The race itself was dull with nothing much to look at and the 45 minoute wait in bitter cold winds to retreive bagas after the race was simply unacceptable. Not a race to recommend.
The race had more ups and downs tna expected and I really coudkl have done without the stong wind which distinctly challenging at time. Despite that my second best time 1h 37m 35s.
Just completed the week’s long run – 20 miles at slightly over 8 min/mile pace. Plus 2 training runs during the week, one on track and one ‘hills’. As its 2 weeks to the Brighton Half Marathon, this will be the last long run for a while.
OK run on Saturday instead of Sunday (bad weather expected) : Kept to Marathon Pace.
Just because this is the first post for some months doesn’t mean that I haven’t been running. I have been training since September/October last year following an operation.
Currently doing 3 sessions a week with 2 during the week with the Serpentine Running Club (Track & Hill sessions) with long runs of 18+ miles at the weekend.
I have places on 3 marathons in the first half of the year (listed on this page) and have just setup up my Virgin Money Giving page for the London Marathon. as with previous years, Its for the MS Trust so come on a donate @ http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/JFLM2014.
