This event is listed on these dates:
Came down with a cold and chesty cough 48 hours before - did the race anyway, but perhaps should have adjusted my pace even further.
Did first 6 miles bang on pace (using pace band and within 10-20 secs at all mile markers, which I thought was good going considering it was a huge and congested race and I was still passing fun runners at mile 4) but then started to struggle from 7 on.
Not helped, I have to say by needing to make an unscheduled wee stop thanks to toilet chaos at the start. Scraped in under the hour after a dire final 3 feeling quite yuck with some odd symptoms like stitch which I've never had before - walked whilst taking on water and had a short walk to blow nose and recoup about every mile between 10-13. Sprinted the last 200 yards as there was no way I was going over the 2 hours, cold or no!
Support was brilliant, lots of people out at the Arena end and around Sefton Park/the prom. Particularly club mates. Top support.
Second time round and hopefully not such headwind
Not too bad considering
Ran 11 injury-free miles in March prior to this race so prtty happy with this. Fitness seemed okay but legs not used to running that distance.
Perfect morning - cool and calm, just a bit early at 09:30 start for the day the clocks changed ! Had a tricky start - too far back and was a big crush for first couple of km - big steps and little steps. Once through that stayed steady for first 10km (41:22) then started putting in a consistent 4min/km rate for remainder of race (10miles at 65:50). Very pleased with energy remaining at 10 miles and ended up with second PB at HM this year ! Race was well organised, well marshalled, great event with 7500 runners. Key is how windy it is - was calm this year for final 4 miles along the seafront - bliss compared to 2010
Only trained for 2 and a half weeks prior, although was off the back of Shell 4 villages half at the end of January, February was a non event.
With no real training due to injury I am very pleased with the time and possibly could have gone a little faster but expected to tire at 10miles which didn't happen.
Bad day at the office, started off with promise but then lost focus & became incredibly bored with running through parks!!!!
Got to the start late due to roadworks. This meant we were well back at the start - nearly 12 mins gone when we went through the start. Plus felt there were too many so made it very difficult to get going.
real good race shame about the time
Time is my own watch time - took 14 mins to reach the start line
would love a pb as this is my local race and i run around the route all the time but need friendly weather:)
Quiet a grey day, very little wind and from the East meant the final 4 miles wouldn't have extra suffering. Difficult to get to a sensible start point but once in front of the 1:30 the crowd thinned.
Just tried to stay on 1:24:59 target pace for first 3 miles getting about 300 ft up on my VP. Hills in the park causing more impact than I expected. By the time I hit the Mersey I was .15mile ahead and knew I might get a 1:23.xx if I could run the last 5km fast. Mile 10-11 was good, mile 11-12 was standard pace, but will a mile to go the central governor pushed hard. Once close enough to see the clock I realised I was going to make a 1:23.xx. The Race time stopped at 1:23:41.
Chip Time: 1:123:36
Thanks to anyone who bet on me
Found it really tough between 9-10miles
9.5 miles great, then died a death
