I am very pleased to announce that I've just completed the Thanet 20! The race went pretty well, I made sure I kept a nice steady 10minute mile pace, which felt slow at the start but by mile 16 was about as fast as I could manage, especially up the hills! The race went all along the east kent coast from Sandwich, through Ramsgate to Broadstairs and back which was lovely in the sunshine. Having never run that far before I was pleased to finish in 3hrs15mins. I never knew jelly babies could taste so good!
Also did a really good 7 mile run on thursday with 3 miles at 8min/mile pace. I think the speed wortk is definitely helping make my longer runs seem easier. Only 6 weeks to go until the real marathon now, it's looming! Almost all of my spare time is now taken up with training, fundraising, eating and sleeping now but I'm almost there!
