Hinckley/Bosworth Half

Sun May 10 2009 Listed by sLickster
60 Entrants Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
Aitchbee First ever half, and guessing I may be one of the last to finish. Was hoping for 2:45 but anything sub-3 will keep me happy now! UPDATE: Well got my sub-3! Disappointed with the amount of walking I did and how early my legs seemed to give up on me, but at least I've now done a half, and a very friendly one it was too.

Dez! Fantastic half prob my best yet. First time i've raced this course and really enjoyed what felt like a fairly flat course. The hill on mile 11 into Market Bosworth was a challenge, but apart from that a great run on a humid day! Shall defo be running this one next year!

Firestarter Not sure about how this will go yet....not ran a half in bloody ages...Mmmm we'll see, but I'm not banking on any PB here.....
UPDATE:.....Big PB, totally unexpected :):).......Don't know where that came from Garmin time, will rectify when Chip time is published, but should be a few seconds quicker :):)...Thanks to Pabsey, for helping me pace the first half right and well done to you Brother....PB-Tastic :):)
EDIT....Chip times in and now here ...:):) Hermitage Harriers RC 1:26:36 1:26:36 1:35:00 1:26:36 73.32

magsd36 Legs might still be a bit heavy after FLM.  Very local for me. Fetch vest has arrived so should  get its first outing this Sunday.

Legs were heavy, but more due to spinning and body pump on Saturday. Enjoyed the race but it was a bit warm. FERC 1:51:17 2:07:30 2:20:00 2:15:22 51.36

Nikinoodle Enjoyed the race, but maybe shoudn't have done it as bad back and flu interupted training, so the 10% rule went out of the window, now looking at possible stress fracture :(  firestarter was right about stopping one race to avoid being out for the season, but that wasn't the leg that hurt before the race :( Hermitage Harriers RC 1:57:24 2:05:54 2:05:54 54.75

Rich963 Found that really hard going - warm and muggy conditions didn't help, but just didn't have any energy today.  Still never managed a good run at this one. Stilton Striders RC 1:28:39 1:29:17 1:33:55 62.17
ross52477 Unofficial time but I think this is what the clock said when I finished the race.  Very pleased with my last 2 miles in order to dip under 1:35.  Fair play to Hinckley - IMHO a lot better race this year, especially the water stations so well done all the marshalls / helpers. Update - I will take the chip time result - very pleased with a PB Barrow Runners 1:29:22 1:29:22 1:34:27 61.81
Rubberman May be a bit soon after London. Will gove it a go if a little cooler than last year.
** UPDATE **
Bit disappointed, should have been closer to 1.30.
Pace collapased after 8 when the hilliness started, but got back to mile pace(ish) for the last 2 miles.

Scouse Bird Last year was hot hot hot, this year was Ht only two times! x x x x x but I did it quicker than last year so happy! No PB though! sorry guys! x x x x Did really try today got a tan and a bit of burnt shoulders too! ouch!!

I was hoping for a PB in this one, but hey hoe!! You win some and you do not reach some on the day! Good day great company!!! still had a good race though, some put it don to me doing a triathlon and a Marathon a week ago, but I put it down to not being PB able on the day! every day is different! Great Marshaling great local support, fantastic station helpers with water drinks sponges and the lovely lady with the hose! x x x x Going to do sub 2 one day! Myabe Leicester half!
