I am thinking (rather maddly!) of entering the Morecambe HM at the end of June.
This would be my first HM and I feel a bit ridiculous in contemplating it however has anyone done it? Would it be a good first one to try?
My original plan was to do the Manchester HM in Oct but we're going to the US for 5 weeks in summer and whilst I fully intend to run over there I'm not too sure if I want the pressure of having to do longer runs in immense heat and unknown territory.
I ran 10 miles on Saturday and I hit a wall at 8.5 miles and had to walk for 45 secs to gather myself and then ran the remainder at 13.00 mins p/m which was a drop of over 90 secs p/m but I finished it in 1:57 which whilst 'slow' was ok for me as my usual run pace is around 5.5-5.75 mph for 10K but I only had water with me so I think on my next long run I'll try a gel at around 6 miles and see if it's any better. That said I wasn't aching on Sunday and went out and did 4 miles
