The Reading Half Marathon.

This was my third half marathon and first of 2015. My running had taken a huge impact from the lack of training over winter from 2014.

I’ve taken a screenshot of my results to make it easier:

Reading Pace MakerI entered this race not expecting to get a PB, or even getting 1:45 – I was hoping for under 2 hours really. I decided to start the race following the 1:35 pace maker. That was a mistake as at around mile 9 he decided to give up and collapse on the pavement. After that I noticed my splits drop – I think I lost all extra motivation I needed to keep me going at that race. I finished the race knackered, but I’m not disappointed with my time. It’s still an improvement on my first half marathon which I guess is the key thing.
