This event is listed on these dates:
That was tough! 3 laps, with the undulations of the first lap turning into the Himalayas by the third, especially at the 20-22 mile stage, where my legs forgot how to run, not helped by the headwind pushing me backwards faster than I was shuffling forwards (funnily enough, there was never a tailwind to compensate...). Was on for sub 3:30 until the wheels fell off at 20 miles, but still well pleased with my performance in such conditions.
I will be happy no mater what time I get as long as I finish
UPDATE The wind was unbelivable and had definatly got stronger by my third lap.Marshalling was excerlent.I hate to admit this but I really enjoyed myself.......
Legs bolloxed at 12 miles, so surprised to post my third fastest ever marathon
I would have been delighted with that time 3 months ago
sorry i just couldnt squeeze hard enough for another pb
Garmin time 3:43:11
Going great till 21 miles then just ran out of steam
Perfect conditions on Saturday turned into gale force winds by race day. Started steady but was 1 min off target by 10M. Ran 2nd 10M faster and only 30 sec off target at 20M. Turned back into headwind after 21M, but wind was even stronger than 1st 2 laps, and was running on my own, so nobody to share the work with. Needed to run 6.30 miles for last 5M to get PB, and gave it my best effort, but it was too mush to ask for in the conditions.
DNF - had to stop due to illness at 20 miles
Very windy but an OK course. 3 laps taking in a bit of town and then open countryisde.
medium course in terms of difficultly. a few hills, and a bit of 'in and out' of shopping centres, but that wind made it a monster, particularly on the 3rd lap.
how's it possible to have a 9 mile lap which has 7miles into the wind. would gladly have traded the sun and wind for rain and calm.
good marshalling and feeding, with plenty of encouragement.
Debut! Was so shagged could not be bothered to try and dip under 37mins. Wind on last lap was a nightmare.
thanks i should of read the north norfolk beach runners bible lol, if you do it under 3.15 you could of entered london for vet, on Performance
