ido - the White Horse Half is in Grove in Oxfordshire. It's in quite a hilly area, but goes round the hills, not up them, so is in fact very flat! A good one for getting a PB apparently. Have you decided whether to enter yours yet?
Well, I did the b. half. Was going to pull out as I'd hardly trained but decided not to as I felt like a quitter. I decided even if I walked for half an hour or so it was better than not doing it at all. I really surprised myself and managed to do it in 2hr 25. The last miles were not very pleasant but the rest of it was great. So glad I did it . Hopefully once the weather improves well all cone back to the page a bit more.
I'm doing the NYC half on 17 March. Have done very little since my disaster in Baton Rouge, and hoping the rest will have done me good. I did a 4 mile race on Saturday, and am signed up for a 5k on Sunday. And have signed up in a weak moment to a "run at least a mile a day everyday in March" thing on FB.
I'm also going to be in the Woolly Hugs team for the 10k in May .
Well done Ido. Kiwi - I am of your training and speed.
Yay - well done ido! My half is on 7th April and I've been finding it hard to increase my distance but I've just managed a 2 hour run for the first time, so am hopeful that I'll manage the half (barring illness or injury).
Thank you humble! It was really, really cold all through the run today. DH and I both ran, although he is still injured from his marathon last year and waiting for knee surgery. I think it was pure will power that worked for him - he finished in 2:03, which is considerably slower than his usual HM time, but still faster than me. I did 1:19 and change, which was a PB - I also PB'd 10K and 10 miles so am very pleased and sore.
Good luck with your run holmes - I think you are next
Thanks for the wishes, Neither, but unfortunately I'm injured . Could hardly walk for days after my 2 hr run last week, and although it feels better now, I don't want to risk another long run for a while. Don't know whether to give up on doing a half altogether or try an even longer, slower build-up for another one.
2:19 is brilliant! well done neither I've just got back from a warm holiday, so I am peeling nicely with the central heating on. Have you left NYC? I am training for another half in May but I have a sore knee at the moment so my training in sporadic. I've been told by the Dr to give up running ... but it will take me a little while to come to terms with that especially as I have qualified for the NYC marathon ...
