CanaryYellow Intending to plod around comfortably. *got carried away in the opening mile running near 9 than 10m/m so decided to stick with it. Now have a real glow of satisfaction heightened because i ran the whole way including that final hill. Unaffiliated 2:20:12 2:20:12 2:29:42 2:20:12 47.81

Gem* This was a very nice race.  Ran with Mick and he ensured we kept to a nice 9min mile pace so we didn't work ourselves too hard.  Every hill was tough, but some nice tail winds meant that there were some easy parts too. Felt really good in the last few miles and chattaed all the way round.  Think this will make the shorter races seem a bit easier - hopefully!  Legs are feeling a bit tight at the mo, but nothing like i expected. Werrington Joggers 2:09:00 2:13:40 2:30:00 2:13:40 55.85
GettingThere Try to run at around 7:45 pace would be good, especially with those hills

Negative splits of 57:36 first half then 56:16 for the second (windier) half - Thanks Vitalstatistix

Girlie Put 2:25 on the form, but anything around 2:30 would be cool.
***UPDATE*** That was the toughest race I have ever run.  Ran most of it with Mrs Smudger and really enjoyed the company.  My piriformis flared up at start which meant i had to be cautious runnign round.  Will be back to better this time next year  though Lonely Goat RC 2:40:14 2:40:14 2:30:00 2:40:14 48.52

Vitalstatistix Training run over hills at marathon pace (I hope).

Post race: 3rd. PB by 2 secs. Blimey, didn't think I was in that sort of shape. I must get pissed more often. Bedford Harriers AC 1:28:21 1:28:21 1:29:59 1:28:21 78.35
Woad Wunner Really pleased with the run, given the lack of training I'd managed to put in, with it only being a couple of minutes outside my PB Bushfield Joggers 1:57:36 2:40:22 2:45:00 2:40:22 43.50
