paulhalford Get your bets on for guaranteed win. I broke my half-marathon PB in the second half of the LM and am taking a couple of minutes off that in training. Course is long and always hit by winds but should be on for mid-73s. Werrington Joggers 1:10:51 1:10:51 1:13:30 1:11:55 83.36

Mrs Jigs (Luverlylegs) Part of 18 mile long run, first time at this event :) ermmm seemed to do this at a little faster than planned, turned out to be at planned marathon pace rather than long run pace. First in category :-) Kettering Town Harriers 1:31:50 1:35:16 1:45:00 1:39:56 83.03

AngeM Grunty Fen Half.  Decided to run without Garmin.  Just had the watch running but didn't look down at it very much.  We got our halfway splits and I was doing okay with 54 minutes at halfway.  Then hangover from that stomach bug of the last 6 days made it known with that horrible stomach cramping, probably all that jigging about of my stomach.   So made decision to ease off and jog-walked from about 8.5 miles, not wanting to have one of those awful emergency loo episodes that I've had recently.  Never mind. Fairly windy and warm.  Still managed marathon long run pace.... City of Norwich AC 1:36:28 1:57:47 1:58:53 57.74

Debbie G I know this will be a PW but it will give me a chance to see how my training is going towards my next marathon challenge.

Pleased with time and finished strong so hope to be back under 2 hours during October (fingers crossed)

5th year in a row I've done this race - excellent marshalling as usual :-) Stowmarket Striders RC 1:48:04 2:03:19 2:05:00 2:03:28 57.72
Oakey Flat course, slight incline coming into Witchford. First 3 miles too quick (7.20-7.40), halfway 51.50, slowed up mile 7-10 along back of 2nd loop but quickened up for last 3 miles - strong last mile Unaffiliated 1:49:13 1:56:17 2:00:00 1:56:17 51.86

Brandon-Hedgehog went too fast at the start. need to learn to pace myself and not go off like the prverbial hare. deceptive long incline on both laps into wentworth village but otherwise flat course. Unaffiliated 1:51:25 1:51:25 1:50:00 1:54:40 54.22
Hash Includes taking a tumble and getting back up again to make the finish line so pretty chuffed.  St John's are wonderful, can't decide now between running VLM for them or Help for Heroes, who I'd planned on Unaffiliated 1:53:22 1:59:32 1:59:32 61.78
