Sunday, 20th Jan saw me doing my first ever half marathon - the Four Villages Half starting and finishing in Helsby. I finished 4th in 1hr21. I was quite pleased although I was hoping to get under 1hr 20. I felt really good all the way round and know I can definitely go a lot quicker!

The furthest I've raced before this was 10k so racing a half marathon is more than double this distance. I got to 6 miles feeling comfortable but thinking how normally my race would be just about to finish and now I've got 7 miles to go!

Anyway it was straight back into training on Monday. Legs haven't been too bad but of all the things to be tight my left shoulder has been sore!

My focus now is the Dewsbury 10k on Sunday, 3rd Feb. Hoping for a pb! Raced here last year and knocked nearly 2 mins off my time and came 2nd so aiming to knock a bit more time off and to win!!
