A restless and tense Saturday including a mostly sleepless night, mightmarish race start(with my timing chip falling off the shoe within secords of starting), a great 1st Half (21.1K in 1:47) and a terrible 2nd Half taking close to 2:05! I am quite disappointed to have missed my original target of a sub 3:40 by over 10 minutes - that's what I had trained for the last 12 weeks- nevertheless the sub 3:52 finish (official timings awaited) is my Personal Best and gave me the 1st place in the Men's veteran category.
Overall the race was as well organised as I had expected it to be though I found the course much tougher than I had anticipated . The main lesson for me is that I need to work hard on strengethening specially my gluts. More details in the next post hopefully by the end of the week.
