GNR pacing groups
Just wondered if anyone out there is joining the pacing group for 1h45 or thereabouts at the GNR?
Assuming I get manage the Bristol half with out too many problems I hope to.
I was thinking of giving it a go if I manage to run under 1:20 at this weeks 10
I'm caught between two groups, I'm hoping for a 1:38. I think that if I start with the 1:45 group, I won't make the time up later on; and if I go with the 1:30 group, I will end up paying for it later in the run. guess I'll just have to pace myself, not that you're ever alone when there are 33k+ other runners. I have already run this a few times so at least I know the course.
Newcomers watch out for the long drag from about 10.5 to just under 12 miles, it's a bit of a killer if you've gone a bit fast early on.
I'm thinking about it, it would be pushing it for me but it is my goal for this autumn. The thing that puts me off is that I believe the pacers run an even pace and I always start easy and speed up, not sure I've got the guts to change my usual race strategy.
Good luck with yours anyway.
