This event is listed on these dates:
recent mileage and wind scuppered chances of PB early on. took till about 11miles to wamr up then passed 6 in last 4 miles to finish 22nd. Course best by 1m20s. last 2 miles 5:55 and 6:05 so pleased with strength but not speed, this is way off what I need for sub 2:45. Will have to check results and see who did 1:34/1:35 and whether it was a slow day for everyone or just me
A surprising PB. Completely unexpected, and all the more satifying for that reason.
Official time 1:58:10
Garmin Time 1:57:43
What a cracking Race Grommit.
Ran with running club mate who was aiming for 2hrs 30 so we did really well,enjoyed it, legs a bit heavy last 2 miles but ok.
I treated this as a training run, running round with my OH who has never run this distance before. We planned 10 minute miles and hit exactly that. I never struggled at all, had loads left at the end and enjoyed the route. A few testing long hills, but a lovely stretch at 5 & 12 miles where there was a left turn that resulted in a few miles of flat running with the wind behind your back.
Had a really good time.
Good run considering carrying a cold. Conditions good. Very mild, wind breezy. Lots of hills! Had trouble on pace with 2nd lap hills 1 and 2, but did fine on last one and final stretch. Long downhill stretch with wind behind was great fun.
Completed first lap only
Struggle. Well organised, good weather. Need to do some more hill training for next years race.
Good training run enjoyed after 6 mile warm up! Longest run/race to date!!!
Achieved my target time and had great fun doing it
A bit of a strange one - see my training notes for the day !
Folksworth 15. Good run with E'O and Ron. Felt really good, could have kept running for a couple more miles and even had enough for a sprint finish. Nice giant jaffa cake at the end supplied by ron, cheers big ears! X
going for a pb, i feel in better shape than last year, but who knows
Cracking run and a PB to boot, really pleased with how I ran, only downside is the strength in my legs
Longest run since the beginning of Dec so wasn't sure how it would go. Pleased to get 1:38, not much outside last year's time and the conditions were quite tough running into a stiff breeze in places. Very mild for Jan though.
well, i was 9 minutes slower than two years ago.. But i still managed to enjoy it and keep up an o.k. pace.
Oops. I'm not used to failing. I'm not used to letting people down. I commented that I should easily pb and I should have done. I'm so sorry. I really pushed the last section knowing if I could just get 1 second under the points would be saved.
But it went wrong. Very wrong. I knew from 4 that I wasnt going to be holding HM pb pace. It was uphill and into the wind. At 7 miles I was still on for a 3 min pb but 7 through 11 were awful. really bad stomach cramps which eventually led me to do a 'Paula'.
Once declogged down below I was reasonably quick again but those 3 slow miles + the minute for a sh*t cost me.
Now I'm headf*cked for the FLM - my training partner dropped the bombshell that they arn't doing the FLM with me despite having a place so I spent a lot of time on the route thinking should I even bother myself. Why spend Sunday 100miles from home using up brownie points like there is no tomorrow just to clock an unacceptable time in a 'marker' race.
I've not felt this low for a while.
Have run this course several times in the past and entered this year with the intention of accompanying my son round ( he's doing London in April0 .As it turned out he clocked a creditable 1.50, while I could kep up with him at all , pulled a calf muscle at 6.5 miles and shuffled round in 2.10!. However the experience has made me assess my limitations and I went for sports massage/therapy for the first time ever this week , and had a tentative 3 miler round the park this morning.Gonna start from scratch again and build up slowly.
Great course and well organised and marshalled - well done Yaxley - I'll be back!
Furthest distance ever run. Last hill felt muscle tugging on R calf so walked up then jogged slowly to finish.
