NBQ - you did really, really well :-) I ran a 10k on Sunday and suffered from the heat. I reckon a half would have done me in.

Pacing is something that comes with experience - or so I'm told ;-)

Really well done (again!) and have fun at your next race in April. medal

Well done NBQ! You did it and you finished it, and probably got some bling to take home to prove it! You don't get that on a training run no matter how fast it is! It's a race in the bag, and a nice time for you to improve upon. Think the 5k PB may have had something to do with it though........!! ;-)

NBQ - Firstly...a HUGE well done, you've done the HM and now matter what you look at it 13.1 miles is a LONG way. As for the time and being slower than training etc. I wouldn't stress too much, it could well be related to your VERY RECENT illness. I'm an asthmatic too and know that if I get any kind of cough/cold/bugs that my running reallt suffers.

Keep up the great work...I'm looking forward to hearing your progress :-)
