bedlam_g Knew early on a PB was out of the question but reckon I did a decent job of running the 1st half solo into an energy sapping strong headwind. In the 2nd half I made better use of the wind assistance than I expected, apart from an unexplainable 5th mile where I was convinced I'd maintained a sub 5.30 pace. Finished in 7th overall and 3rd Bella behind a PBing Russ and Scott who went storming past me near the finish. The only things I reckon I got wrong today were not going off with the group ahead and getting some shelter from the wind and seemingly losing concentration in the 5th mile. Strangely yet another low race heart rate last years Troon average was HR was 190 compared to this years 184, it still feels as tough.

Bruc£ Had a really good race at this one, with a 23 sec PB and felt fairly strong throughout and passed a few runners in the last few kms to finish 13th.  Managed to run a negative split for the first time ever (18.06 out, 17.37 back) although this was made easier by the head wind/tail wind!!  

In hindsight the very conservative first 5k were probably just right, as I was able to finish strongly.

Scored a freakin' awesome bright yellow t-shirt for finishing too.  Well organised race and a great course.  Will do this one again.

ChristopheD slightly disappointing - felt comfortable for 6k then died off - may be due to feeling dodgy this week and lack of training past 3 weeks. Bellahouston Road Runners 41:20 43:45 44:47 59.75

The Belly Is Gaun Tae Get Ye Did not take serious enough from out-set. Started getting ready and found Ihad two left socks -OK no big deal.

Went to get shoes and discovered in my haste that I had picked up two different brands of trainers- one being my running shoe the other being OH' gardening shoe ( cross trainer) OK- big problem two right feet.
Decision- run barefoot or run in M & S black trainers used for work.
Felt pace good at easy effort and only started to blow in last K. The heavy trainers lost me 17 secs that would have taken me under 45 min and be regarded as a big plus at this stage of Ultra training. Fusion Triathlon Club 40:34 45:16 45:16 62.67
