Well, last night was a lovely race, I don’t know my time yet because I did my normal trick of forgetting to stop my Garmin when I finished. It was an out and back route along Littlehampton beach…. Luckily the tide was out but there were still some ankle deep bits and some very soft sinking sand to run through…. As well as the up and down the shingle sections.
The heat certainly makes a difference. Two weeks ago it was only 8 or 9 degrees, last night it was about 20 degrees and I’m certainly not used to it !
The best bit has to be the homemade cake at the finish 🙂 there is something really lovely about the smaller local races, you get to meet and start to know the other runners from the local clubs and it is always a really friendly atmosphere.
On Sunday I’m racing in London….. I can honestly say that I doubt that I will be as fast as last year, I just haven’t trained properly for it, I’m also running again tonight so a proper taper is out the window. I’m just planning on going along and enjoying it, after all that is why I run !
