Heres a bit of a run down of the race.
I decided when I got up Sunday morning that I was definately doing the race, as although my back was painfull I didnt think it bad enough to warrant me missing the run.
I had printed out a pace guide to try stick to to get me to the finish line at 3hr 20, and stuck to this for the first few miles, then came the wind lol, The wind was quite strong, and we were having to run into it which slowed us all noticably.
Luckily we only hit the hard winds a few times along the race route .
I got to the half way mark in 1hr 36 which is faster than my half marathon pb, and I was feeling fine.
Just after this I caught up with and started talking to another runner who it turns out never runs more that two and a half miles, but runs 7 days a week, and does well in all races from 10k to full marathons, with his best marathon time being 3hr 39.
We were having interesting discussions about training, diet etc, and I was sure that we were running at a good pace.
However, the next time I looked at my pace guide at almost the 20 mile mark, I was gutted to see that I was now well behind my time, and would have try to make it up in the final 6 miles to come in at 3.20.
I knew that it would be inpossible to make up this time, but upped my pace, and by the time I got to 22 miles I could no longer see the bloke Id been talking too when I looked back.
I threw my pace guide into a bin at the next water station so that I couldnt keep looking at it and feeling crap coz I hadnt kept up to it.
I did the old classic of just looking at the person in front and slowly reeling them in lol.
As well as the gells Id taken I also had a trek brownie bar with me, so at this point I started nibbling little bits of this, and although it may well have been in my head, a few minutes after each nibble I fet a surge of energy.
I always get painfull hip joints when running more than 15 miles so by this time the pain in my lower back was equaled by the hip pain[im an old wreck lol], but I did not feel tired, and had no other aches or pains.
The last just over 3 miles are along the sea front, and as the weather was poor[raining and dull], there werent that many people around to get in the way which was good
I had had my eye on a runner since the 20 mile mark who I had just not been able to catch up too, but decided that I WAS going to at least catch him before the finish line.
It took a lot of doing,but just before the 26 mile mark I overtook him, and even managed to speed up slightly and overtake another 3 people before the race end.
I didnt manage to make up the time I had lost, but clawed some of it back to come in 49th out of 214 runners at a time of 3.27.11
