April is over

May 1, 2017

and ended with the ‘ackney ‘arf, which our daughter Sarah also ran. It was supposed to be a cool cloudy day but was actually quite warm, mostly sunny and quite windy especially towards the end, & after on the walk to Sodo Pizza Cafe in Lower Clapton Road, where we had an excellent post-race lunch (and beer !).

I found the course hard work with lots of ups & downs, nothing serious, but sapping for me, following as it did immediately after doing 3 full marathons in April. All was good until just after half way when I lost touch with the 1h 40m pacers but managed to keep ticking over to finish in around 1h 44m, disappointing but an age grading of 71.6% isn’t too shabby.

Shame that the Olympic Park still looks bare & undeveloped although better than when I previously ran the ‘arf in 2014 when it was horribly hot !

Nothing more until the end of May with the London Vitality 10000 and possibly the Edinburgh Marathon.
