Official time, watch time was about 20s less. Really really tough course. Took it far too easy over the first mile, came in at 9:28, aiming at 9:00 so speeded up a bit. Found myself shadowing a woan who looked a bit like Rosa Mota so figured she must know what she was doing, but got bored after a while so overtook. The hills were just huge and I'm still poor enough at pacing not to knw how to adjust for them. Mile after mile I was bang on 9mm, until some savage gradients put me a minute or two behind. Coming back I was making the time up, but downhills that weren't there on the way out became huge uphils on the way home. Kept wanting to stop, but kept reminding myself that I feel like that at Bushy Park, so forced through to the end. Rosa Mota came past me about a mile from home. bugger, should have stuck to following her, and probably 6-8 people overtook me in the closing stages. Absolutely bushed at the finishing line, it was a good 5 mins before I could eat ay cake! Fetchers take note. This is a fabulous race, and the cake is plentiful and fantastico!
