Saturday 20th March
Larne Half Marathon today - lovely conditions for running - sunny and pleasant temperature. I got through the first 10 miles - with a little walk at the half way mark to take off my jacket and repin my number - but the wheels came off the trolley after that and I struggled over the last 3 miles. I was glad to be running with a friend of mine who kept me going. Very, very tough for me. My lack of running fitness really came to the fore. I finished it in 2hrs 20. Pretty rubbish time considering my pb is 1hr 50. But I got round in one piece with no pain running which is a great result considering where I was at the beginning of January.
