This was to be my first Marathon in my journey of running, and I had only booked it as part of my long-term strategy and training for Spring Marathon. I was advised at one point to go through 2 marathon training plans as preparation so that I can be in the best shape for April. So looking at some Marathons available it was a coin toss between the Nottingham Marathon around the water sports centre (9 laps) or Elsecar Trail Marathon (4 laps). Just looking at the number of laps, I decided to go for Elsecar (It was also highly recommended by one of the Striders).

This was my last 10K for this year, it’s also a race that tends to fill up within hours of opening for registration. Last year, this was my 3rd race and wanted to come back, as I had thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the support. Continue reading “Percy Pud 10K 2018”
Race Date: 4th November 2018
This was a 10K race, which I had booked well in advance, knowing too well that it had a PB potential. After doing the Leeds 10K, I found that the route would be very similar. With my PB of 46:08 there, I was hoping for a really good race after a few races that I had PB’d over the previous few months.

This was only my second Half Marathon, and easily was the longest wait for a race to appear in my calendar, as the previous race scheduled in August had to be cancelled for personal reasons. This was also the one that would help me to understand how well my long distance training has gone over the past 6 -9 months.

This was my first ever race in Ramadhan that took place on 20th May 2018 and had registered for this at the beginning of April, thinking that, the race should be not that difficult. Now, not have done any running in Ramadhan before, I wasn’t really sure how to go about with fluid intake or any energy levels that I would have on the race day. Up until a few days before, I was thinking of not taking part, and happy to part with my registration fee, to assist with the charity.

Over the weekend, was my first race of 2018, where I was in the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run. It was my first race outside of South Yorkshire and on a potential flat PB course. The event is well organised and was in its fourth year as an event. With 20,500 people expected and a sold-out event, the race times were different depending on individuals time targets specified at registration. What this meant was that my allocated time was 10:18, for my estimated time, which was around 1 hour. I entered this race before I ran Percy Pud, so didn’t think I could get below the 1-hour barrier.
