So it’s been a very mixed year. Early marathon on a track in February 105 Laps mind numbing cold run but a pb. Half marathon in March the first one in wigan. Tough hilly course perfect training for Manchester marathon. 3:15:46 at Manchester almost 10 mins faster than last year.
Then really started to focus on tri training. Not enough bike miles I think. Another half in may at rock n roll Liverpool another pb. Would of also pb the 5k the day before if it wasn’t short. In July I became an Ironman so happy when i got out of the water I knew I had done it. The finish line was amazing but after the dust settles I know I could do better and would need to focus on the bike.
Back to trying to get my speed back and smashed wigan 10k first time sub 40 really pleased with that run I paced it perfectly probably my best run ever. So I had my speed back and thought would still have the endurance from Ironman so was hoping to get under 3:15 and closer to 3:05 at Amsterdam how wrong I was had a shocker it just didn’t go to plan but still I think 4th fastest marathon time a few cross countries and mow cop killer mile a few cycle rides like Cheshire Cat have also been done. Over all a really successful year.
I Can’t wait for the awards night with the club and Manchester and Berlin Marathon next year still hopeful of getting Doing Ironman again next year. https://2017.strava.com/en-gb/videos/973e330eb31ada62c4d2300f4c686e284dc14edb/
