This event is listed on these dates:
My 1st 1/2 marathon - but have been knocking 20k off in training so fairly comfortable i can get round - but really want to go sub 2 hrs
Aiming for a sub 2hrs finish. Which I didn't quite make. Heat & slight lack of training caught up with me. Walked/jogged the last 3 miles or so.
Awful prep for this race, stopped and walked twice, thats a first for me, a bit embarrasing..... good lesson in better prep for Bath next year, also knee was bad from about 7 miles on....
Only a minute outside my PB so very happy considering the crap prep. Garmin says i ran 13.37.
Better organization this year despite the late race packs. The weather got a bit hot for me, definitely struggling by the end
Nice conditions, excellent course for 1st half, slowed down in latter stages. Decent performance.
Died at 8 miles - was well on for a PB (probably going to quick and took on too many fluids).
Herumph! Did not believe in myself enough in first 5 miles. Played cathc-up for a bit then destroyed my right calf in the last mile. Also not happy that time is currently 3 mins off my Garmin time????
Took this at a very steady plod to make sure I got round. Finished inside my target time & felt fine after. Enjoyed this hugely despite many, many doubts about doing it
Was going really well until mile 9 when the temperature and the lack of distance training really started to show. Ended up plodding alone for the last few miles throwing away what could have easily have been a 1:45.
Well organised start, lots of drinks stations and a hefty medal. Only down side was the lack of atmosphere at the end of the race once you cross the finish line.
Hot Day not the day to do a half marathon by choice,well organised and marshalled.The start was a vast improvement by having it spilt
just had 2 weeks rest from a calf injury so not to unhappy with time
My worst time ever but i know why and i also know that over the next few monthes things will improve dramiticly. That being said i did enjoy it and would love to go back again and do a better time
Perfect conditions: still, warmish and a well run race in a great city. Oh, and a PB to boot - well timed, with NY just 7 weeks away. Could probably even have knocked a further second or two off if the road immediately after each of the Lucozade Sport drinks stations hadn't resembled the floor of a student's kitchen.....my favourite announcement from a race marshal: "keep left round the corner...and mind the skip!"
Chuffed to bits with my time. Wanted sub 2hrs but didnt expect that. Got boxed in for the first few miles, but managed to find some clear road. Really went off too quickly, and almost paid the price in the last mile, but very pleased.
Want to try and beat 2 hours but would be happy with anything faster than 2.15mins - oh well - it was hot. Found it tough going - will try again at Bath next year.
Not a great race for me - felt I could/should have done better. Last 3 miles were fastest of the whole race... started steady, fell asleep coming back down the portway, so slow 6-9 miles then picked up the pace to finish comfortably. Still placed well, so not that bad!do think this is a bit slower as a course than reading, which is where I've set my PBs, so maybe shouldnt compare directly.
Not the best preparation, up most of the night on Friday with a bad belly. Saturday I tried to chill but ended up doing DIY. Felt ok on sunday morning, but the illness must have taken a lot out of me as the race was awful. Really bad, loads of walking. Eventually finished in an official time of about 2:26:35, a PW. Poo.
The first five miles or so were ok, a bit quicker than planned but not too strenuous. I started to really struggle on the way back into town, ironically downhill. I did stop briefly to get help for a fallen comrade. By the time 9M came it had all ceased to be fun. It was nice to speak to a couple of fetchies on the way round; apologies for the garbled conversations - I become vague when tired!
The last three miles were hellish. The hills did not help. My back was killing me, my legs ached and I felt completely empty. I tried to put a bit of a spurt on for the last mile, but ended up walking again. And the finish was around a bend, so I couldn't see it untilI got to it. Was really disappointed with my time, at 9M I was on for a 2:10 finish. I dislike running today.
Really love this race. Don't think I was fully trained for it and didn't help myself my drinking a load of water and getting stitch around mile 10 and having to walk for quite some time! Looking forward to getting a better time next year!
Not a bad race. Even paced and felt ok up till around 10 miles.
Went pretty well. Slowed a bit at 8 miles like last year but managed to pick it back up towards the end. PB by 33s.
Woop woop! Wanted to get under 2 hours but had absolutely no idea if I would The race itself was hard. Way too warm for me and the last 4 miles were hell. Partcilarly over the cobbles. Stopped to walk while drinking a couple of times which I felt really helped. Overall, very chuffed!
Good course, good pace ran
Bristol Half Marathon; Brilliant Run, couldn't believe how easy the first 10 miles were, felt sure something was going to go wrong but it didn't, so I upped the pace for the last 3 and beat my target time by nearly 2 mins.
Well happy. 13.?? how many miles.Splits which were 6.52's for a sub 1:30 and I hit 6:50 but forgot about extra distance which Garmin said was 13.28 so just missed out. Such is life.
Oh!! And well organised this year vast improvement.
Disappointed All going well for sub 2 until 10 miles then lost it in the last 3. Not strong enough.
Gah, not very close to what I was aiming and no PB. I'll blame it being a bit hot and there being more annoyingly placed hills that Reading.
took it easy knew wasn't at best
Stronger than I thought with a time of 74:13. Felt good all the way and when I realised I had a chance to beat first lady I was able to stick in a 5:18 for mile 13.
0.35 at 5:13 pace 175bpm
Splits are Garmin based and are slightly too fast as it thinks I did 13.35m
Another minute off my PB, hooray! Went off perhaps a bit too fast, got a stitch around 2-3 miles, but managed to banish it fully by concentrating on breathing properly. Great organisation and I enjoyed the scenery along the gorge, though the bends, cobbles and undulations in the last few miles were less welcome
Enjoyed a good run, easily running a PB by about 8 mins. Conditions near perfect and I thought well organised. There were some people moaning about not being allowed in the 'wave 1' group (even though they were wearing 'wave 2' numbers) but for me it worked to my advantage. Lining up at the front of the second start allowed me to get away from any congestion which I would have no doubt faced had I been towards the back of the start of the first start. Event village full of great atmosphere - BATH HALF ORGANISERS I HOPE YOU WERE WATCHING!
My knee was hurting by one mile, and I was practically on one leg at the end. Should probably have pulled out before the end.
been struggling to get runs in as my five month old daughter keeping us up most of the night and i have just changed shifts to perm earlies
My first HM. Goal 1 is to finish.
Very very pleased with that. What a great day out! Very warm today - must have been 20C. Pedicures before and after by my wife meant that I had no foot injuries - just a touch of sunburn - in mid September!!!
Was really ready for it today - thanks to P and EPS for their support and encouragement.
I may treat myself to a new pair of shoes...
still struggling with hamstrings
My goal was to beat 100 minutes but I was astonished to get a time of 92 minutes.
For this race I had a large spaghetti bolognese two nights before, and sausage and bread the night before with a couple of cans of guinness. Two and a half hours before the race I had two bits of toast and houmous, coffee and orange juice.
In the race my splits between 4 and 8 miles were consistently ahead of what I'd planned, and after 8 miles I felt strong and quickened the pace through to the end.
After days(months?) training in wind and rain it turned out to be one of the sunniest days of the year...Got a PB though!
bit quicker than anticipated! Felt bloody strong on this one! Did as planned and ran nearly 12km at about 7..30/mile pace prior to the race. Start was steady due to traffic, but from 3 miles onwards, kept upping and upping the pace until the end!
Mile 1. 6.52/140bpm
Mile 2. 7.05/160bpm
Mile 3. 6.44/154bpm
Mile 4. 6.41/156bpm
Mile 5. 6.28/159bpm
Mile 6. 6.27/162bpm
Mile 7. 6.33/163bpm
Mile 8. 6.34/164bpm
Mile 9. 6.14/165bpm
Mile 10. 6.22/167bpm
Mile 11. 6.11/168bpm
Mile 12. 6.09/168bpm
Mile 13. 6.10/171bpm
Mile 13.1 0.50/175bpm (seemed a long 0.1 of a mile!!!)
Lots of congestion early on [2 miles=14:30], but then hit steady pace until 10 miles [69:00]. Mile 11 was a disaster, but held on after that. Pleased with the time.
Hot, last few miles were very hard work, felt as if I was going backwards.
was on track for a sub-1:55 half until about mile 8-9 then ran out of steam and had to slow down - more training needed to go faster over this distance!
Ran this race at marathon pace as part of training for the Amsterdam marathon in Oct 08.
No training but happy I finished it.
Hit 10 miles at 80 mins, but lack of training meant I crashed!
the race went so much better than I had hoped. i was going to be pleased with a sub 1:25 so sub 1:23 was fantastic
finish position 145
A Pb for this course but I can do so much better if I just trained and ate sensibly.
551 of 9,700
had a terrible terrible race, felt like death when I got to Cumberland road. very disappointed with this one.
finished 1835th place
After arriving back from San Fran on Saturday night!
