CottamRunner Race of two halves after illness before bed (stomach) and interrupted sleep. Went after sub 3.15 via pretty even pace and felt good halfway. Then it came crashing down lol. Ah well.

Splits: Chip Time
10k 45.36 ... good.
10m 1.12.50 ... good.
HM 1.36.03 ... good but was feeling toe / blisters.
20m 2.38.27 ... wheels off at 16m, blister pain and fatigue
26.2m 3.41.21 ... kinda held it together but lost 25-30 mins second half.
