Smashed my half marathon PB at Scunthorpe yesterday. Went from 1.53.35 to 1.47.44 in one go, aided by a nice flat course and great conditions. That run has been coming for some time, just didn't expect it yesterday as my training has dropped off a bit and the weight has gone on.After the train wreck that was Sheffield, the North Lincs Half was brilliantly organised and tremendous fun. With around 1000 runners it still has a "club race" feel to it, but with the benefits of a "big race" finish in the stadium. Highly recommended.Struggling to think how I'll beat that time in the near future, and looking at other distances, including the marathon. I'm going to have a crack at a 10 mile PB in 2 weeks and a 10K PB in June. The thing is, yesterday was one of those great days where your body just works. I actually thought I was going too fast so tried to slow down and concentrate on rhythm so I didn't collapse in the last 3 miles like I did at Nottingham and Sheffield. After a few minutes I checked my watch and I had actually sped up. I did a pretty big negative split - 54.30 for the first half of the race and 53.14 for the second half.Might be the incentive I needed for a bit of weight loss and some harder work in training.




Fantastic achievement, well done you. Brilliant time and neary 6 mins faster, wow you must have been smiling like a Cheshire Cat

Great splits as well

I'll use this as a kick up my ass.... Motivating others, many thanks

Facebook has a challenge I joined - 100 miles in a month.

I first did this in January to see if it was achievable( previously the most I'd run was 50 ish) , I did it and enjoyed it, plus the January one was no alcohol for a month... Great way to start the year.

This month I've managed 30 miles in 7 days..... So it got me thinking!!!

Should we set ourself an individual goal for a month and post on it weekly to help motivate ourselves and others??


Or is time to let the thread die off??

Regards

Paul

Nice one, it'll be our own goal(s) and hopefully others will be interested.


Some of the posting has really kicked me up the bum, tim2 certainly help me focus even more recently with his recent achievement.

Hearing about other losing weight just makes me happy after being a 20 stoner 9 years ago..... Self motivation, determination, drive and desire help me achieve my weight loss.

Sharing and caring posts my just help someone else.

Did a 10K trail race last night at Maltby in 54 mins, vey hilly but a beautiful run across fields (including a narrow path through 6ft high raip plants) and through Roche Abbey. Not bad after a half marathon 3 days before.

 

10K at Holymoorside on Sunday, another tough race as part of a plan to beat my 10 mile and 10K PBs before the summer.

Tim2 - you didn't half motivate me this morning on my hilly training run


I did 1/2 Marathon distance in 1:47.55 a PB for the distance, however doesn't count as it's training.

The weather was poor, rain, windy and rain..... I'm chuffed as hell... Cheers

I've now run 50 miles in 10 days, best return in a short space and I've had 3 days rest as well.

Ran a couple of miles today and then straight into swimming baths for 45 minutes. I did this on Wednesday too. I find it a bit better than just running which I seem to be lacking the oomph factor lately.

Sometimes running only is hard on the body, swiming really helps pulled / stretch them muscles out.... Good on you.

You'll get your mojo back for running I'm sure

4.3 km on the rower in 20 minutes this morning follow by 30 minutes on the trampoline with my son.

 

The rower was by far the easiest, trampolining was bl**dy hard work. Legs still a bit wobbly.

Holymoorside 10K was brutal. I did it in 56 minutes, about 3-4 minutes more than I expected, but then again it was hillier than I expected.

Still, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right?

Well that was a hellish ride home. Going.over the brow of a hill in cycle lane. Lane stopped and a car appeared out of nowhere in traffic line tucked right into pavement.

Managed to lift left foot and get through tiny gap but was braced to hit the mirror.

Legs were shaking afterwards!
