Perkins Great Eastern Half

So, I finally ran another race. In short, I have been loving my runs with my club (If anyone is thinking of joining a club DO IT – best thing I’ve done!) and lots of people from the club were taking part in the Great Eastern Run, so I signed up too. 

With limited long run training, I knew I had to pace it sensibly. So here are the highs and lows;

Highs

  • Ran with my cousin Katie and one of my friends Vicki from Run Club

  

  • First outting in my club vest #TeamBalancise
  • Loved the FLAT course.
  • Paced it well, felt strong all the way round.

  

  • Got to meet up with some of Team RUN MND. 
  • Nice bling to add to the collection.  

Lows

  • Lack of toilets meant I was VERY close to going in a bush – instead started the race with full bladder.

That’s about it with lows, I really did enjoy the race. I wasn’t worried about time, I just wanted to get round and finish strong! I think my time was about 2.15, nowhere near a PB, but sometimes runs are not just about targeting PBs.

How’s everyone’s running going?
