Good day at the office but the weather didn't exactly play is part.
Felt very strong in the first 2 miles and I knew I could break the 50 minutes mark. Then mile 3 this has to be the longest road I have ever ran it just never seemed to end and then the wind which seemed to be going straight across us brought my pace right back. Once we left there I managed to control the breathing and make the final push
Crossed the line in a new record of 48.17 and a new p.b by 2 minutes

Mile 1- 7.36
Mile 2- 7.47
Mile 3- 7.52
Mile 4- 8.02
Mile 5- 8.07
Mile 6- 7.57

Thanks Nules yeah definitely think I could have gone another 1 - 1.30 minute quicker but that's for another day.

One lesson learned today never wear new shorts I can hardly walk now with the chafing

Thanks Anne, that's one thing you should stress to all over at marathon 2012 I am in a bad way here

Starting to see nice improvements in my times alright. All this club training might just be working.

Half marathon time at the moment is 1.50 hope for maybe a 1.48 in Ballina and a 1.43 for the year. Probably wishful thinking.
