Boycie What a disaster! Woke up feeling really bad - stomach off and struggled to eat much breakfast. Set off and legs were like lead by 1 mile - even though I had run a what should've been comfortable 6.32 - I put in two more miles at 6.32 each one, but by then it was apparent that if I was to even complete the race, I would need to drop off, I tried to maintain it at 6.50 pace but by mile 7 I had thrown up and was reduced to running 7.20s which was very painful for the remaining 5 miles of the race, finishing in a really bad 1:32:52 :-( Sorry guys...

runnyeyes Not a good day. First 5 miles were ok 9mm and HR at target 165bpm..but I was feeling pretty sick and finding it hard even at mile 3. Tried to persuade myself that it was just a bad patch, but by mile8 I had to forget pbs and drop the pace. Then it became a mental battle with the disappointment. I kept runnung..and that was todays acheivement.Just hope that this was to do with temporary health prob/meds...and not lack of bottle! Sad day. Unaffiliated 1:55:26 1:55:26 2:00:00 2:07:00 56.39
Seagrave Ran 7.72 miles to the start, was 6.5 minutes late for start so spent the first mile and a half in last place, really pleased with the time given the warm up.

thomas h last year ,i  managed a pb 1.22.48 in this race . quiet undulating rural roads .initally the route is out and back with a loop at the far end, so u get to see the hills waiting for you , as you travel out  . normally race entry fills quite early . 
post race: could not get on pace at all (6.05/mile target 1.19.30) . had a bad knee on monday 1 oct  ,could'nt walk , so result not so bad  .u all did'nt know you were betting on a lame horse!
took ibruphen & did ice packs for most  of week expect that had an effect on pace. Centurion RC 1:22:17 1:22:17 1:20:00 1:22:17 77.17
Trogre Wow, huge PB. Excellent course and well organised. 
It makes a change not having to queue for the toilets.
Thanks to all the Fetchies who encouraged me along the way! Unaffiliated 1:56:44 1:56:44 2:05:00 1:59:40 48.79
