Knee better but not right yet.
Accompanied wife nikki on her first half marathon and used race as a bit of recovery endurance
Really enjoyed this one last year and looking forward to doing it again.
Unfortunately Gemski found this very tough so I stayed with her to keep her going. I felt I was fully capable of getting a sub-2 but there's always next time!!!!
What a great quirky race, where else can you run a half marathon with no traffic and just the odd fisher man here an there. Very hot and seemed to be running into a head wind from the start. Towards the end the bridges were taking a toll on my calf, but will be doing this again.
A lot harder than I anticipated it'd be. All off-road on gravely trails and lots of canal bridges to climb over which were very uneven and broke any rythem you built. A great event though. finished 10th/998
splits 6:01 6:02 6:21 6:19 6:21 6:25 6:28 6:30 6:29 6:28 6:36 6:41 6:35 1:49
Mrs Jigs (Luverlylegs)
Did this as part of a long run, turned back at finish for another 5 miles, a bit faster pace than it should have been, started on 2nd wave despite being given an elite start!!! Finished 11th lady.
first half marathon
Very hot day,,excuses I know.
I found this very dikfficult again, 10 miles to the end I really struggled, wont be running this again
I think it's flat along the canal with a hill at the end?
Roasting! And a bit long, too. Worth it for the goodie bag...
