  • Half Marathon Day


    Sep2920142 p.m.

    Sunday was   Half Marathon day. It was beautiful morning for what is a very low key race, mainly full of running club runners. As I have already blogged I had not really trained for this, but had thought I would give it a go,. No time expectation, just wanted to enjoy what should be a very scenic route. Well the run did not disappoint, beautiful, scenery and a beautiful  sunny morning. ( maybe a bit hot for running) The miles seemed to go by pretty smoothly and felt great until about 9 miles which then it was a bit harder work, but all fine and finished 3 seconds slower than I thought I would, which is fine. I am very happy with the race as a whole as I had no back ache which I usually do for the last 2 miles of a half and no stomach problems which I sometimes suffer with after the race and no headache either in the afternoon. The whole run felt comfortable and that was without any longer runs as training so I am over the moon. What a great way to spend a Sunday morning.
