That was not a good race. I've been feeling pretty rubish for a few days and I really shouldn't have raced. It was a rather cold and damp day. I set off at a good pace (3:40 min/km) running with a team mate (Gerard). I started to feel pretty tired before 10km and by the 10km point I was already slowing. Ended up feeling really weak and light headed and had to walk several times in the last few km. Finished in a very dissapointing 1:28. Sometimes running when you feel ill pays off (as with my last marathon PB) - but not this time!

After 5 years in France, and after much deliberation and discussion, having considered many factors we have decided that this year is the time for us to move back to England. The move to France was never meant to be permanent and there are many good reasons to move back this year. So here is the WHY, WHERE and WHEN...

A new Challenge race in the UK mid September next year! Would it be too much to do this and IMUK next year?

Thinking about main race targets for next year. How does this sound?... London marathon, Ironman UK and South Downs Way 100 mile (run).
