Monday Report: EXTRA, EXTRA, CUMBRIAN HILLS NO MATCH FOR LAMB AS SHE STORMS TO HER FIRST SUB-90 EVER!!!
Yes, I still cannot believe it, a week after last 10M PB I was away for the weekend and thought I'd do a local race to keep up the training for GNR... Anyway, as you know, I hadn't been well earlier in the week so was not aiming for a fast time, especially as the course is undulating (that's a nothern euphemism for bl**dy hilly!).
But there I was going through 2M at 16:50, thinking the mile markers can't be right... I was still thinking that when I hit 9M at 1:19 with 11 mins to do the final mile (was convinced the final mile would contain all the missing metres that had been lopped off the preceding miles!). But it didn't and I finished in 1:28:09 up a final hill, comfortably under 90mins!!!!!
OK, I did have a cream scone to celebrate, but am definitely back in training and dieting today!
