Hi The 'Ed'
In the half marathon race on the 4th June I got the following time:
OFFICIAL TIME: 01:31:50
CHIP TIME: 01:30:06
SPLITS ACCORDING TO THE STATS ON THE RESULTS SITE:
KM 5: 00:23:21
KM 10: 00:44:45
KM 15: 01:05:53
I’m 95% happy on how I managed my pace. I think I could have gone faster to begin with and not been too affected towards the end but I imagine everyone says something like that. The fact is I didnt. I do want to race this again as it was fantastic.
I was a bit frustrated to begin with as for some reason I was put at the back in group G with the 2Hour+ guys. So I am unsure if I would have got a better time if I wasn’t held back in the first 2k or so trying not to waste energy weaving in and out of people. This all said. I got a stitch at about 18km and had to shove that out of my mind as best i could. I also started to feel the strain at this point and slowed down but tried my best to speed up. It was tough but amazing.
The winning time was Barselius KIPYEGO (KEN) in 01:00:30
