JUST MISSED SETTING A NEW P.B.
Back in 2004 I ran 2.05.24, pretty sure it was a short course back then [19.75 miles!], today after pushing too hard keeping up with team mate Ben [ 10 miles 6.06 pace] i started to blow and went through a bad patch for the next 3 miles, getting dropped by the group i was in.
I went through 13 miles in 1.20, shortly after I was caught by a guy and we worked together into the wind, I pulled myself around and finished quite strongly, finishing on a running track and being told we had to run 2 laps [ 800m] to finish was not good, but i manged to power round to a 2.05.25 finish, 6.15 pace average for 20.00 miles.
The wind picked up throughout the event which made for hard going in the second half of the race.
messed up with my pace a bit, should have been 2.4.50 ish with better pacing!
Ben ran a great race, at just 21 this was his longest ever run and race, he finished with 2.03
Simon set a 6 minute p.b. with 2.22 and Paul after returning from injury ran well with 2.30
my next race is the Liverpool 1/2 marathon can i beat Scott brown and do a 1.18 ?
