This event is listed on these dates:
Nice, reasonably flat course. Except that nasty footbridge at the end which was steeper than I had expected and a bit cramped. The first few miles were far too overcrowded and with people of wildly differing pace. I spent quite a long time weaving in and out of people and running on grass verges.
Missed my PB by 5 irritating seconds. :o(
Had the dreaded 'never again' feeling when I crossed the line, fuelled by a missed PB and a very painful hip, but feel better and more realistic after a good night's sleep and will start to look for my June/July HM in the next few days.
woke up had pancakes & prepared to go & watch MK half then thought sod that I'll run it - last night speed session means I'm nakered now - sub 2, maybe sub 1.45 ?
pleased with my time, was slowed by volume of runners at the start & slowed in the 2nd half - 47.00 for half way - positive split.
gross pos ; 500th, Net pos ; 428th race number 4155
gross time 1.38.08
Over the moon with the run. Felt so comfortable. I will go quicker again. My run was great, I wish I could be as complimentary about the organisation. Bites tongue.
Official time - I'll take that
So deperate to break my half PB which by this time will be 6.5 years old. Mara training should put in me reasonable form to do it! UPDATE: RAAAARRR Blew the PB out of the water, delighted with this, loved the race!
A deceptively fast start on the down slope section. Settled in to a more sensible pace after about 3 miles, although a couple of sections were slightly slower, notably mile 7 around the top end of Willen Lake. Knowing that the last mile or so would be uphill, I put in a determined effort during the 11th and 12th miles, then hung on for a PB.
Good race, well marshaled. Nice cheering fans at the finish. Tough last couple of miles. I thought the start could have been organised a little better with timing pens this would have avoided some of the better runners who were obviously stuck at the back not bullying there way through once the race began!
hopefully not as windy as last year, maybe a pb? well hope to beat last years 1hr40m
Great route, shame about the glum-looking marshalls! Passing motorists gave me more encouragement!!
Official chip time
very busy for first 4 or 5 miles with 5k and 10k people
Not as good as I hoped - crashed and burned in the last 2 miles! But still a PB so very happy and broke all my other PBs en route.
Probs not a PB... but maybe close. Just missed the PB. Blast
If I am feeling in good shape, plan to go all out to try and run a quick time - fairly ambitious with this prediction though!
Update 4/3 - Struggling a little with a calf injury, hope to run this but may revise plans of a quick race if needs be.
Milton Keynes Half Marathon. Despite the injury worries building up to the race, everything was okay on the day - just a slight feeling in right foot and calf in latter stages of race. Had a good run, found myself after a couple of miles pace making for the lead lady, who stuck to me like glue for the entire race until about 12 1/2 miles when on a nasty drag up to an overpass, I broke her by a few yards. Finished 20th provisionally and with a new PB which I was very pleased with. The really encouraging news is that HR was super low - quite a few beats lower than usual for HM and not much higher than marathon. Also the run was entirely comfortable except for the hilly final mile and I felt totally fine later in the day. Weather: sunny, cold with a very cold breeze which got stronger during race, around 4C max.
This was my PB and didnt get any cramps.
this race did'nt go as planned ,to crowded and could'nt get into my pace
Gave up on sub 1:35 before I crossed the start line because of people traffic. After 3 miles however things had cleared and I finally got warmed up by 6 miles. Should of pushed a bit harder here but had settled in my mind for 1.37 ish until about 9 miles when I realised I felt great and pushed on for sub 1.35. Last mile I tired badly but still a PB by a minute so got to be happy.
4. 6.36 (short)
5. 7.32 (long)
.1. 40 secs
Don't use the baggage store! 1-2 hrs to get your bag back. Not good!
Nice route - awful organisation - queued for 1hr 15mins for my bag after the race. No goodie bag or bananas so very hungry by the time I got to my wallet.
started 9 1/2 minutes late - and calf gave out at mile 10 and a half - time now published correct but would have been great it my leg hadn't have packed up despite the late start
Broke all the rules, ran with a virus. Never again

PB and first time under 1.50 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
