Agent Orange Terrific conditions and my race went almost perfectly to plan, far better than I dared hope. Started steadily, getting to 10kms in exactly 55 mins.  Then I ran with a couple of similarly paced runners from 12th km to 29th km - got to halfway in 1 hour 56 and to the 32.2km/20 mile point in 2 hours 56. Pushed on for the next 3km at which point I knew sub-4 hours was pretty certain.  Then it got tough and I was hovering around 6 min/km for the last 7.  Delighted with the result.

Oranj Hamstring I tweaked last weekend started to tighten up and I called it a day after 8km rather than risk more damage. Jogged back to the HQ. Shame, it looked like being a good day. Oxford City AC 2:45:27 3:03:50 3:05:00 0.00

steeplechaser  Went for 3:10, started fading from 15 miles on but whilst I found it hard it was not disastrous. Happy with final result. Alchester RC (Bicester), St Austell Running Club 3:03:12 3:12:19 3:12:19 75.95
