This event is listed on these dates:
This was a bit of a car crash. Recovering from a heavy cold, and having done no running for two weeks prior, meant that I was not in good shape. Did Liverpool a few weeks back in 1:57, so set a conservative target of 2:25 for 11 minute miles. Overheated badly on the way up to the ring road and never recovered, and I had to walk a good proportion of the last few miles - despite these being flat. It was murder. Glad just to get round in one piece.
Running for Candlelighters
Last time did this was back in 2007. I didn't train properly and half walked/jogged for the last 2-3 miles. I think I've prepared properly this time, did 13 mile run at steady pace in 2:19 and am secretly targetiing for under 2:10 if I feel good on the day. Am very familiar with running the hills on this route, I used to run them many a time when I lived in Meanwood for 6 years! BTW I was actually on the winning team for the Leeds Half Marathon Corporate Challenge Relay way back in 1995 with the mixed men & women's team from PricewaterhouseCoopers. Seem to remember getting a nice sports bag as a prize (about the only thing I have won!). I must have been quite fast then! I wonder if I'll ever be that fast again.......
Brilliant, managed a PB and kept to my target pace exactly all way round. Felt very comfortable all way round probably need to start pushing myself a bit harder now.....I even passed the smurf at 10 1/2 miles!
I got a new pb!
Good race - went much better than I had planned or expected. My mate Dave pulled me along to beat my PB by a massive 14 minutes! Good practice for Edinburgh but still under no illusions about how tough my first marathon will be.
Discovered that running 2 weeks after the marathon whilst carrying an injury is not a good idea
Gun time 1:45:18 , Category position 58 , overall position 666
Last half marathon was Burn Valley last year. This is much less hilly thank god so should go quicker (in theory).
Well - Kebab & half a bottle of vino last night did the trick. Felt great all the way around; last mile a slog but by then I didn't care because the PB was in the bag.
doing marathon pace to get me ready for Edinburgh Marathon very soon.
Only 2 weeks after I did the Shakespeare Marathon, so just bear in mind my legs might not be too good!
Fairly middling run - not awful but not spectacular either.
pretty much as expected, set of a bit too quick and suffered between 4 & 8 starting moving through from Horsforth and pleased to pick of chris miller at end. 5 min slower than last time out...
3m - 17.18,(3-4) 6.16,(4-halfway) 18.14, (halfway-8)5.28,(8-9) 5.38,(9-10) 5.52,(10-11) 5.52,(11-12) 5.46,(12-end)6.59
First ever Half. Wante sub 2hour, but realistically I was looking at 2.15. To get 2.07.45 made my day.
really disappointed as thought i'd trained hard for this, my first half in a couple of years. the second long hill took me by surprise and by 7miles my legs had gone. the only good thing to come out of it was that i never actualy stopped or walked. can anyone suggest any long hills on which to train around the dn3 area
My first 1/2 marathon
