The end of the season…

I think… I’m done! I think!

Today was the Barnstaple Half Marathon. Quite glad I wasn’t entered for the big one! I woke up with a lot of phlegma on my chest! After a bit of a lie in and a coffee / bagel I was feeling reasonable!

I decided to try and go off with the 1.30 pacer… and never made it! They were off like rockets! Looking at my splits I should have been up there but he obviously was saving up a bit of time for the end! I kept him in sight for the first half and then lost him towards mile 8/9.

I was quite pleased overall. The first ‘parkrun’ was low 20’s. 20.13 and it went up from there – until I went pop at 22.04. Still the run was only 35 seconds off my pb. Not a bad effort for the amount of running I’m not doing at the moment (just come off a big bike month) 11 runs for 6.5 hrs inc today!

Shame about mile 12 really but it wasn’t pretty out there!

So off to the training chamber for October, Nov, December. Next race I think is January – a half off Road. I wonder if I could ever put a 1.34 down after a 56 mile bike??
