Its back … !!

September 15, 2016

House move and other stuff is the excuse.

So the last races were the Edinburgh Marathon – a day that was too warm for my liking so happy with 3h 45m – and then the next day the London Vitality 10k with a time of just over 46m. Apparently you are not supposed to race such distances on consecutive days.

Since then (end of May) I have done every little running and only tried to start training properly this last month. To be honest I’ve suffered with that feeling a lack of speed and endurance : Running 10 miles at a slow pace has been terribly difficult.  I was due to run the Victoria Park 10k which was also the Club & Middlesex County Championship but thanks to the Overground not starting at the published time I was unable to get to the Race.

I was worried about running the Great North Run (Half Marathon) last weekend but had a good training session on the Thursday prior. The day of the race was warm & sunny – not my preferred conditions – so under the circumstances I am not unpleased with my time of 1h 44m. I ran in my MS Trust vest and called in on the MS Trust tent to grab a bourbon biscuit, while having a photo taken, which so far hasn’t as was threatened appeared on Facebook.

Next race is the London Parks Half Marathon in early October … lets how close I can get to my ‘PB’ of 1h 35m.
