Well it is now the end of Week 5. Things have been going smoothly, today was the test for my knees to hold up for some serious mileage in running. I took part in the Bury St Edmunds 20 mile run http://www.raceres.org.uk/mdhome%201.htm.
Finished in 2:23:05 hr 41st / 351 finishers
Average HR 157 bpm
Average pace 7:05min per mile
Pictures from Bury 20m run.........
Very happy with the result and was able to keep an eye on my HR, adjusting pace and effort. Used a new Fuel Belt which had gels held in little bottles, good easy concept and easy to use.
Knees have held out but a bit sore after that. My next event is Bungay 1/2 marathon 19th April then Suffolk 100m bike ride 10th May. I am looking at doing a 1/2 Ironman (70.3) on 17th May but not sure if I can get cover for work .
