Hills of Death (HOD) Feeling Hot Hot Hot -As I said to some of you before either the weather will be hot or I will not BOTH.

Massive apology to everyone that bet on me I failed miserably. Even consired quiting running for good I was that upset. Thought I was going to collapse at 7k. It was very very very hot and I had some shade as well. This should be a PB no questions.

Started race feeling dehydrated 1st mile 6m 54s mile I thought I could keep this up all day mile 2 8 m 02 near the end of mile my legs started to slow considerably mile 3 7m 57s I tried to pick it up at haf way 24 mins I have to run a neg split and my legs won't let me. Miles 4,5,6 around the 8min mark I struggled HR 170+. It was a bad day. Did n't get the same feeling when I finished that I normally get. Well gutted. Got lapped by fast blokes as well.

I don't know what was to blame 1. The Weather 2. My Race strategy 3. The fact I did a 7.5 miler Thurs

mokina It was so hot!! I couldn't breathe. Thank god for the sponges and for the few trees. But it was a great day out as my family was visiting me and I managed to run with my dad (we crossed the finish line together!). Plus it was a PB for me :-) Happy Runner Club 57:49 57:49 1:00:00 57:49 52.83

SUPERWOMAN63 Well what can l say have got the running bug and this was the furthest l had challenged myself to run l raised money for the London Chest Hospital and Hollycats Childrens Charity, my husband, children and friends came to support me and guess what it was a glorious HOT day. I was surrounded by real athletes and as the race started l was swamped by lots of them flying past me BUT l didn't panic l ran my own pace and finished and felt fabulous, another medal and we had a great picnic in a great park.
