London Vitality 10K

London Vitality 10K

It did not disappoint! Running through the centre of London was so amazing and the crowds supporting and music along the way were inspiring. For once I didn't struggle with the last 2K. In fact they were my fastest. No PB but only 10 seconds slower than my best. Plus for the first time I wasn't crippled with pre-race nerves.I am still not convinced I will have the nerve to run the Berlin marathon in September but I am feelng much more hopeful!

Excellent news, well done you! Your training over longer distances must be paying off if you can have the last 2k as your fastest. Glad to see there was good support there for you, and it certainly doesn't look like you came trailing in an hour after anyone else while they were clearing the course :)

Thanks. No my nightmare didn't materialise. In fact there were 1500 people slower than me! That's the advantage of running in. a huge field- you can twist the statistics to comfort yourself! 😊

Brilliant ! You're looking great there TT! You are on target for Berlin. No worries!

Hope you're recovered now! It took me over a week to recover from my last race.

Thanks MW. I had very few aches and pains after this run which is a relief as I have a 17 K training run to do on Sunday! After the Nath half marathon I could hardly move three days later . I've entered the Dublin half marathon in a months time so we'll see then if my fitness has really improved.
