Did my first half marathon today at a little local race called the headcorn half.
So my plan and what i thought i would get from my last weeks in training was that I would go for around 2hrs 20minutes. So I started off at a good pace which I kept telling myself, your going to fast your die at the end. But I kept at a similar sort of pace until a slight hill where I dropped down a bit. It was after the hill I decided I felt good and that maybe I should up the pace a bit, I did the next km I upped the pace again and again.
I got to the last couple of Km's and I was starting to feel it my breathing was heavy my legs were feeling it, but I pushed on and went even faster. I even managed a sprint finish!
It was a lovely race, though the fields of kent and was maybe as about as flat as you can make a race and that time well 2hrs 6mins 17secs will do me. Sub 2hrs I am coming for you!
