Had a good race this morning in the Wokingham Half Marathon. My time was 2 hours 38 mins. I was happy with the time as I was using it as a training run. It was 6 minutes slower than my PB. I started too fast and so after 1 km I immediately slowed down till I settled down and got into my rhythm. Then after 5 miles I felt good and so sped up a bit. I did 10 miles in 1 hour 58 mins but then for the last 3 miles we turned the corner into the wind and rain, and so I eased up a bit; especially as I knew I would be outside my PB. The Wokingham is pleasant run but needs a drinks sponsor, as you can’t drink out of cups and need bottles at the drinks station. I wish it took you through the town centre too. I had a bit of pain from my adductor muscle injury but it seems to be settling down now.
