Well that was fun. 13 miles of great scenery one large hill and an obvious loss of fitness.
I struggled badly from 8 miles onwards, finally finishing in 1hr 50min. The lack of training over the last few weeks really showed and spoilt my 40th birthday race (organisers gave me number 40 as a gesture). But it was all to be expected.
Back to training for the MDS, albeit gradually, with races planned. But lets see how the next few months go, and see if i get a place in the London Marathon next year.
