This event is listed on these dates:
Entered. Part of the club challenge so, i shall be giving it everything. Feel in good shape now but, i am on holiday the week before and won't be doing any running. The holiday took a little more out of me than i expected. Still happy with the result.
In the end I was happy to finish my first half marathon. It's a long way. My legs felt a little banged up at the end and I finished with cramp in my right leg which saw me get over the line like Douglas Barder. I could have made it in 2:15:00 without that final hiccup. For my next half I will do specific training, which means using any other races around the time as fast training runs.
Its a club Grand Prix race so will be going balls out. No idea about time, in theory I should be in good nick by then, but don't know what the course is like. Sub 2hrs would be nice! UPDATE: Really pleased with that run, enjoyed almost all of it apart from around 11 - 12 miles, but I knew once I got through that the last mile was all downhill. Not a PB, but i'm getting closer!!
Another great outing in Clumber Park. It did get extraordinarily wet at one point. Found myself in a bunch of well focussed individuals for most of the second half who seemed to pull me along so thanks whoever you were. Rolling downhill to the finish was joyous! Maybe I *will* get back to sub 1:30 before drawing the pension after all...
Another attempt at the illusive new years resolution:
Missed again but still managed a PB by a few seconds. Wasn't really prepared for this one but enjoyed it all the same including the downpour! Wingy did a good job round mile 8 -9 pulling me along, Mick and Phil always an inspiration. Spotted IanM, Heidi and Su2 as well, you were looking good at 6 miles Su, easy easy easy.
Only Clowne left now for this years sub 1:45 new years resolution otherwise I'll have to roll it over for a third year!
First half for a while - under 1 30 would be great....
Update - not a great one. Didn't go at 100% as have had a bad cold all this week, but still a bit disappointed. Splits were: 7.49 7.10 6.33 6.53 7.12 7.16 7.29 7.47 7.42 7.07 7.24 7.40 6.44 0.51 which doesn't look too bad, but was never threatening PB pace. Very well organised event though and can't blame Worksop Harriers for the weather...
Wow. Went way better than expected. Cracking race - my 2nd fastest time and makes me think that my PB is actually reachable!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Not a course for PB's!
Not my favourite type of course, but very well organised and traffic free, which was brilliant. Just couldn't get going today. Put a few pounds on over the past few weeks which probably has something to do with my poor performance.
Excellent race, good course and organisation. A pleasure to have no traffic to think about. Just a shame that I really needed to get in a car at about 8 miles when my wheels became somewhat detached Would do it agaiin though.
Enjoyed it - except the driving rain in the middle. Was hoping for better but had recently missed 2 weeks running due to illness and ofsted inspection (excuses.. excuses)
Good small field, gerat race, windy and very wet! Mile 8 and 12 tough
Much slower than last year, but the conditions were much more adverse. Although can't complain as I do love this race, even the first four mile on the road down to the park. And counted as the sixth man of the winning team RRR.
