Expecting this to be flat, so perhaps sub 1:17 is possible. Thanks for the enormous number of bets. I've heard this course isn't as flat as I thought, but I'm still going to aim for sub 1:17. POST RUN > Well, the PB is in the bag, but not without a fight. Mainly with my bowels. Had desperate urge at 9 miles and vanished into a field to achieve some relief. Then spent the remaining 4 miles trying to claw back 2nd position. Just made it back into 2nd place with about 400m to go. A big relief to cross the line, but with seriously sore insides.
Likely to still be recovering from the 'Tour'. Update - Was doing fine till about 7mile then hamstring started tightening up a bit so stopped to stretch it then hoped to run it of. Was fine till 10 mile then it started again. Walked and ran 11 & 12, then got a glimpse of the time and made a concerted effort to run the last 1.1mile. Nice course, slippy in a couple of places given the wet conditions. Be back next year though for a better run.
Went off far too quickly and suffered for it. Struggled 10 - 12 miles. Found at the finish my nipple was bleeding from my T shirt rubbing ! Never had that happen before! Will have to tape or vaseline them next run.
Hoping to pb here, you never know!! Update, sorry to those who bet on me, time says it all. Found the conditions really difficult along with hamstring pull not a good combination. Hope for no lasting damage.
