Blenheim half marathon

Finished the above run this morning, by the skin of my teeth. I hurt my back two weeks ago and obviously not right yet. It's a very hilly route despite being called flat. I was great until about 15k and my hips gave out. Fir the first time in ages I had to walk. Most upsetting.!! My Tim was 1:57:45 or thereabouts. Still waiting for chip time to come. Onwards and upwards. Onto the next run. Andy. 😁

Well done! I walked on several bits but it doesn't worry me. Walking saves lives! LOL

I hope you're feeling somewhat restored by now and your hip is less painful
