Today was the day for the Sydney Half Marathon, even though this was by far my best training I had a lousy race….
The weather was absolutely perfect, could not be better, around 16 degrees and clear. The start was more crowded than I remember and I really couldn’t get my rhythm. The same kept happening for most of the next hour, I always have a dead patch between around 55 and 65 minutes, today was no different. I had to have my first gel at only around 40 minutes!
Once I was finally through the lull zone things got a lot better, but it was too late by then; not enough time to get a decent time. 1hr 52 in the end, definitely not my best day – next time!
