After yesterdays Hull 10k my dream of the 2 handle marathon (sub 3) seems a long way off today. The result was a cold shower to my ambitions, a real wake up call to let me know just how much effort this is going to take.
The race started well enough, clicked off the first mile in 06:34/mi however the heat was killing me. I always struggle in the heat and yesterday was no different. I quickly found myself struggling and having to drop off the pace to just ensure I could finish.
The end result was a rather poor 47 exact, not fast, not pretty, but it’s a start and lets me know where I am today.
Next stop…a little more training, some more dieting and maybe a parkrun or two in the coming months.
