I'm afraid to say it didn't go well and I really didn't enjoy the race apart from the few points where I saw my friends running or cheering from the sides.
I think it was doomed from the start. I've had a cold since Wednesday and I didn't sleep very well last night. In the race though, I did manage to get into a zone of sorts for the first 6 or so miles but then a few problems arose. Firstly, the lack of energy that I knew was apparent started to kick in. Then I started to get some unpleasant chafage of the gentlemanly variety! And at about mile 8 my feet really started to hurt (I'll really need to get them seen to by a chiropodist). And after that the last 4 miles were just murder.
It's a shame as the support was great, it was a nice day, and the goodie bag was ace, but you win some you lose some! On to Hastings half!

Today turned out to be an unexpected surprise. I had done very little training over the last month and I honestly didnt think I could get near 1 hour 30 mins let alone beat it. So in that respect I am extremely happy.

I ran it with a guy from my running club and we stuck to a pace of about 6.40 per mile which I felt comfortable with. The problem came has I knew it would around mile 10 which is due to the lack of longs runs so Im guessing my body got a bit annoyed at me at this point. The last three miles were tough but i just constantly replayed positives thoughts of "you can do this" which Im a big believer in.
The goodie bag was fantastic, t`shirt, medal and far too much lucozade. So I have Hastings in about a month and i have a belief that I may be able to do ok in that, however, get some long runs in.

I knew it wasn't my day when I was overtaken by a zebra. From mile 7 I got slower and slower. I watched helpless as the mates I started with, all aiming for sub 1.45 disappeared into the distance. I managed 1.47 at Worthing two weeks ago and I was taking it fairly easy then. In the meantime, a twisted ankle and very little running clearly took its toll. I considered packing it in a few times but finished and I am happy that I did.
Once again, my city did runners proud. So much noise and support from start to finish. Great medal and the inclusion this year of rather lovely finishers t shirt. I'll be back next year.
