Baz, another great effort. We all know the feeling when it starts to go south at that late stage of the race, but to still pull out another 2.42 is magic. Enjoy the rest.
I'm also trying to sort out my diet. Not aiming for an overhaul, just cutting out the poor snack choices and monitoring my calories. Running is ticking over OK for this stage of the year, I'm past the most frustrating stage of getting back into it as my pace has started to pick up again, and as I lose some of this weight it'll get easier yet.
No sub 3 target for me at this stage. My 'A' race for spring is the Fling, so I'll be going past 30 a few times in the near future, and hope it doesn't break me
Depending how I bounce back from that effort I might look at Edinburgh in May to make use of the big miles and extra endurance.
