thinking of doing just my 2nd race this year....anyone doing this or has done it in the past?
thinking of merging this with a day out...what's to see.is this actually near the victory ship?
We are doing it for the first time. Not too sure where it goes past though. Judging by past reviews. I expect it to be very windy.
Oh blimey, have you seen the forecast??
Ah well, good to blow the cobwebs out...
Yeah I am doing this tomorrow - only my 3rd ever race - done 2 great south runs.
no real training but hoping to go round in 45 mins or under - does this mean I will be last lol ?
Youll be mid pack with that sort of time PompeyFC
The weather doesnt look good for tomorrow..................... its been foul here in Andover.
Managed to just make the start line in time due to poor driving conditions and not leaving on time. No warm up or stetching! Enjoyed the race itself.. .thought it was well organised and for my 1st 5 mile road race i was impressed with the organisation and friendly people! Never ran in wind like that before! Not sure where i finished was top 8 i think, looked at watch at 4 miles and was on 19.52, but the last mile into that wind made me come to a practical stand still! I hope everyone had a good run!
Just had to google Mike East...ahhh!
How did I get on? lol mate you were showered, in the car, halfway home before I finished I was hoping for 40mins, but took me 45..sprinted to the finish. I thought it was ok..I mean weather wasn't great, but I think hearing other peoples views on Victory 5 it's quite often bad weather. I could have done with eating more before the race too - felt a bit low on energy, but made the pub lunch after more worthwhile..
Glad it wasn't a wasted journey for you!
I got round in 51 min - a PB for me.
The great thing about this race was that I found myself running with the same people as at the Gosport Half and we helped each other stay motivated.
The wind was bad, but at least it stayed dry for us.
