shortnginger - runningfrommybelly
this will be my first 20 mile race but using it as a training run for lochaber marathon
great race managed to run at mara pace and never eased off good sprint finish
Bit windy but a fine course - flat and traffic-free. Managed a negative split (68/65) thanks to Jonah's efforts so feeling a lot happiet about 26.2 miles in a few week's time
Actual results say I was a minute quicker (02:25:12) but I'm pretty sure it was 2:26:12.
One day I will learn to race and not just run !
PB by about 6 mins from last year though so happy with that.
Well what can I say... the worst piece of uncontrolled running I've ever done...
Warmed up and legs felt okay, although heavy. Went out in the 2nd lead group, which placed me 4th ish... group was 5 including me.
Went through 1 mile too quick and slowed... once I went through 2nd mile,m thought well, achillies isn't reacting... so lets see what I can do...
It was very windy, but thought, maybe do 15 miles of it as close to 6:00m/m, fat chance...
Realised when I got to 5, I was working too hard and made the decision to slow of and let the group go ahead.... this left me in 8th position and in no mans land for 15 miles though, and that's not good. Realised at 8 mile, that the club record was slipping away, and it was time to work, but legs were starting to feel it now... although I was happy to do 6:20's, felt very easy, wasn't breathing hard... then at 12 mile, the wheels just came off... just legs were gone... and it was very fustrating...
So, at 14 mile, it was hang on time... and forget times... race... I could just see a yellow shirt, one of the lads had fell off that pack... so just prayed he failed and came back to me... but was running on fumes now...
17 mile was it... it was hang on time, and the realisation that I'm a 100% Tool going off so quick...
So, what have I learnt?
1). I'm no where near 6:00 m/m pace pace for a 20 miler.
2). Injury isn't playing up, which is a massive releaf...
3). You can't run quick with no runs in 6 days prior to a race
4). I don't run well in the wind...
5). I know what I have to do in the next 11 weeks...
6). My pacing is dreadful, and and the sooner I realise this, then I'll have better races.
7). I'm simply not good enough, either on the day or in general and am considerably slower than I thought I was going to be.
