Well it's now only 4 weeks until the London Marathon & I will soon be tailing off my training, so I have fresh legs for the day. Well that's the plan anyway!!
Did the Hastings Half Marathon today & I had been warned that it was hilly. Christ that was the worst underestimation I have ever been told. It was horrendous, but I was pleased to overtake the chap in the Rhino suit & beat him to the end!!
The very hilly & step route
This was a well organised HM & congratulation must go to the Lions Internation for the event. I did a half 2 weeks ago & pushed myself & was pleased to only be 21 seconds slower that the flat of Eastbourne. To put this into persective, I did the event with my friend Sandra, who has done numerous halfs & she said this was the hardest one she had ever done & was 15 minutes slower than Eastbourne. So overall I was pleased with my efforts.
You also get a nice bit of bling for doing it!!
Looking forward to next week, off to Worthing for their 20 mile event & then thankfully I can start to reduce the distances I am running & my knees will be grateful!!
