Well the lead up to my half marathon was eventful. I did a session with a couple of fast Ks in it about two weeks ago and I think I slightly injured myself by pulling one of my adductors in my right leg (who knew there was such a thing) anyway this worried me a bit, so I took a little rest and then pulled back on the training and did easy or recovery pace runs and I think this really helped along with the ibuprofen.
Anyway I went out for a run Friday and there was a slight niggle.
Anyway off this morning to Fleetwood for the HM with a little apprehension, but feeling that as long as the niggles kept in check then I should be ok. I planned to run a pace of between 5m30 and 5m40 per K which should result in a sub 2hour run and allow me to slow slightly if needed later in the race.
Lovely day, if not a tad warm and little windy on the home stretch and a very small niggle for the last couple of Ks
BUT OMG my Garmin says 1h55m31s, just waiting for official chip time, but definitely under 2hours
Not bad for a couch potatoes that could only just run for a minute just over a year ago and graduated about a year ago, next stop the Marathon in April
Enjoy your runs this long weekend
