7 minutes off my PB!!
Was supposed to be a nice run before the marathon next week but set off to quick and ended up doing a PB! It was good fun tho!
Prediction: Sheffield 10k time in April suggests that I'm on target for 1:34. Got a knotted calf, but should get a PB regardless. Result: Storming race, great weather, good organisation, wonderful stadium start/finish and a minute and a half under my (optimistic) PB prediction.
Gutted!!! It all started off ok clocking 8:15-8:30 min miles, but fell off the pace at about 8 miles, dropping down to 9m/m. Then at 10 miles the wheels just fell off!! Ended up walking a fair bit. Was hoping for a PB, but thought i'd at least beat last years time of 1:58, but it wasn't to be. Don't know what went wrong, maybe I set off too fast, maybe I under estimated how hilly it was, but am now slightly worried about Blackpool in 2 weeks!!
i think im ready, just trying to hold off a cold, otherwise im hopefull of sub 1:50. Not quite as good as I had hoped for, but a PB none the less.
I will probably be still recovering from FLM, so would be happy with around 1.45. Update: Outside chance of a PB - Will be going for it! Under-estimeted my fitness, took a big chunck out of my PB and a negative split.
Missed PB by 45 seconds, DOH! must try harder, Must try harder, Must try harder
thanks to all that bet on me, 4300 credits in total.
Really enjoyed running this in my home town, smashed my PB by 8mins
Really enjoyed this race,specilly ecclesall rd and town centre, and of course the finish in the stadium.
Also spoke to richard Caborn (sports minister) told him he was losing his bananas (they were hanging out of his rucksack). Definately back next year.
My first Half Marathon so not looking to get a fast time, will be happy to get round and enjoy it. Hoping to shake this cold by the weekend though! Result: Really enjoyed it and got a reasonable time. The crowds were excellent & the course really enjoyable and varied. Struggled a bit in the last 3 miles, until then was on track for a good sub 2hr finish but not too upset as I am glad to have got my first one done.
Aiming to PB and go under 1:30 - the Ranby 10 mile suggests it may be possible. Disappointed if I don't at least get close. Woot woot - seeing as I was ill for the first half of the week I'm not sure where this came from but I'm not going to complain. Very chuffed with an even pace - 10 - 12 were complete torture but seems worth it now.
How's that for a prediction?A little hot but a great race.The underpasses & running through the NCP just add to the character and you can't beat a big stadium finish.
Mental note - dont shave plums a couple of days before race again! And if you do, get some vaso slapped on. In pain, but just the plums. Really happy to set a pb, and a hot day. Maybe below 1 hour 50 next year? Who knows.
Spliats were 8.33, 8.23, 8.27, 8.33, 8.39, 8.26, 8.26, 8.18, 8.49, 8.37, 8.47, 9.04, 9.03
going to have a crack at the PB, marginal at best...
Gave it everything I could, but wasn't where near where I wanted to be after 13.1 miles. Sorry to those that had a flutter on me...
good race and good organization. will do it again next year.
Not Greased Lightning (M.)
Saw some fetchies, weather was ok, enjoyed the race and managed a pb. Sub 1.35 for definate next outing. Just adjusted the time to the chip time.
A real buzz for me as it was my first half-marathon. Ecclesall Road and the town centre were high points but slog back to Don Valley Stadium sapped me of everything ! Will do again though
Great run - aimed for 8.30 pace and almost spot on.
suffer in the 2nd half
too hot a day on my first 1/2 marathon. over predicted myself. brilliant sprint finish
Ran with a friend from work for 1st half then ran on own for second half
