I ran my first ever half marathon (or any race) yesterday in Finland. I haven't been running so much at all in my life, only really since last autumn, and since then not as much as I should have been.. Before the race I had only run twice in the last month, and both of those were short and at a very slow pace.

So I did not set a time for myself, I just thought I'll run through it (was maybe thinking of 2.30 or something).

But running felt suprisingly good and at 10 km my time was 1.03, so I got excited of maybe being able to run it for a bit over 2 hours. So I speeded up a bit and after the last few hard and exhausted kilometres my time was 2.07.15. I was very happy since I had never believed that could be possible with this amount of training.

Ran a 10km tonight, road race in Co. Tipperary. Wow were they fast runners! I did a really good time for me but I'd say I was in the last 15. More training needed!! Anyway, can you add my time please:

56.39
Thanks :D

Good work travelgal:) I've always thought races are great motivation to up the training.

Did another 15k race today. 5.5 minute PB: 56:24. Went through 10k in 37:25, so that would be another PB (but I'm not sure whether James/the vegan fitness statute would allow that:P).

[quote="Papaya"]My split from the HM at 10 mile was 1:11:21 (unofficial). Can we count this as my Pb over 10 miles?


I ran the Torbay HM yesterday and my 10 mile split was 1:11:11. No Pb on the full distance though, but that's still 5 pbs in 4 races this year!

10k - 42:15

I hadn't run in months, but I went on a 4day mtb-trip that week
apparently that helped.

thanks for adding!
