This event is listed on these dates:
Very flat, cool weather, overcast but no rain.
Great run but hard.
Carb loaded well, on PSP22
However, haven't run propoerly since New Forst, and that is taking taper a bit too far
Set 7'10" on countdown timer. Got tired at 11 miles (got that "10 mile ache" at 10 too) so I knew i was in for problems at the other end
Kept up with the 7'10" pace until 11 miles.
15 second down at half marathon point (1hr 34'10" should have been at 1hr 33'53")
Kept up with pace (but 10 secs down) for next 5
but by 18 miles was really struggling to keep up that pace.
Got cramp in right calf at 18
Jo and the kids came to support - left home at 10 past 7!!
I have to say that I felt MUCH better at NF for the first 19 miles (felt great in NF to 19 miles, felt tired from 11 at ab)
3 loops on this flat but somewhat exposed course. Good organisation.
blew it again, tripped over @ 18m, struggled to the end with SVT still a PB
Had to add this as first marathon
