Wilmslow Half

A pleasing race at the Wilmslow Half on Sunday which was also the England Half Marathon Championships. Quite tired legs from a week of training in a very windy and hilly but hot Fuerteventura and only 5 hours sleep due to late return flight.

I started off too fast - I didn't realise it at the time as it felt quite comfortable. The girl who went on to win was about 30m ahead of me until 12k when I hit a bit of a bad spot. Unfortunately 2 girls went past me in the last 5k. Tired legs and starting too fast had really caught up with me by then. A pb of 78.31 (knocking over 2 mins off my current pb) and 4th place - can't complain. Looked at my results later in the day and they had the 10k split which was actually 5s faster than my current 10k pb. Oops!

A good race and great weather too. Will hopefully come back to this one next year.

Less than 4 weeks now until London. Everything is just right so hoping no last minute injuries or illnesses come my way!
