Pre Anglo Celtic Plate 100 km

I'm not sure what to say but want to record something to look back on in the future.

Next week I'm running in the Anglo Centre Plate 100 km as part of the Welsh Team. This will be my first race running for my country.

I know that the race is also the National 100 km championships and a trial race for the GB Team for the World 100 km in Doha on 28th November later in the year. The qualifying time of under 7h02m is right at my limit and everything would need to go right.

In reality I'll probably just see how I feel on the day after doing 10 miles and then decide if a sub 7h is possible. It's a 6m45s average pace.

Manchester Marathon

Well i aimed for another sub 2h30m and got no where near again. And again I'm blaming the wind instead of myself and admit that perhaps it's outside of my grasp.

The thing is that if i decide a sub 2h30m is unachievable for me then i might give up trying and i don't want to give up trying.

Good news is that I totally smashed the first half in 1h15m but then the second half smashed me. My next challenge is 100km in May.

Baby crying, got to go. My blogs are not as long now with a newborn

BTW I did 2h37m
