Marlow 7 Miler Race Recap

很抱歉,我在博客和视频方面落后了很多,Uni work is taking over my life right now with a spate of deadlines all within a three week period.I've already had an exam,1 online test and 1 piece of coursework in,and have 3 pieces left to hand in before term finishes on the 13th December.很高兴有一个家庭度假计划到哥斯达黎加(我们有16个人要去!)

然而,back to the main event,马洛7英里赛跑重演!两个周末前,we had some friends to stay to enjoy the local fireworks and run the local 必威官网running club race. None of us had thought to look at the course profile,可能假设这条路线会带我们沿着泰晤士河走,因此相当平坦,like most of the other races I've done in this area.

我们错得有多严重。

不小心穿了一身灰黑相间的制服。

在轻松找到停车位(原来是一个长途汽车停车位,导致赛后停车罚款)之后,我们收集了围嘴,把我们的包/外套脱了,朝起跑线走去。7英里和半程马拉松同时开始,在公园的大门前,大家都显得有点邋遢,但当他们挤过去的时候,每个人都很有礼貌,举止得体。

埃米莉和我本来打算在一起的,whilst the boys dashed off immediately.

My face in the photo below…I look so scared!!

Marlow 7 miler race recap

The first half mile was through Marlow,我们感觉很好。外面很冷(2度),所以我们穿了很多衣服,然而,在阳光下,它感觉很好和温暖,我很快就后悔我的长袖热量!!

在大约3/4英里的范围内,山丘开始起伏,必威betwayand from then on the hills felt relentless.我们的步调到处都是,所以我把我的汤姆藏起来,决定我们不该在乎结束时间,只想继续跑下去。必威betway

It's probably best if you watch the video to see how steep they were and how hard I was breathing… Don't forget to subscribe to myYouTube频道如果你还没有的话(看看我能不能在2月的东京马拉松赛中打到1000个潜艇!)

不仅是超级丘陵,下坡路很滑,所以我们有点担心摔倒。必威betwayAll style went out the window as I ran with my arms out wide to try to balance myself!!

The hills were tough but the scenery was gorgeous.这些叶子都是一排美丽的黄金,crimson and orange,再加上绿色的田野和湛蓝的天空,这有助于我们忘掉事情。我原本以为这是一场越野赛,but it was actually all on roads.有些车没有关门,但是司机很体贴,等待我们通过。

我想半程马拉松选手在5英里处与我们分开,继续穿过起伏的乡村。I was very glad not to be tackling that half that day,然而,它将为未来的马拉松提供很好的山地训练!!

There were two water stations along the 7 miler,with friendly volunteers blasting music from their cars.我说不出这场以社区为基础的比赛有多可爱——从免费的行李寄存区和车钥匙寄存处,给沿途的警察和迪斯科·戴夫做通知。

还有1.5英里,一切都在下坡,我们很高兴能做到。

1.00.49 – not bad for a hilly 7 miles.

孩子们比我们先完成了一点,菲尔以54分钟的成绩领先,and Tom squeaking in just under an hour.

我们喜欢盖伊·福克斯主题的奖牌和我们都得到的长袖技术上衣。18英镑的价格还不错!!伦敦以外的赛马会便宜得多!!

在收拾完我们的东西之后,在马洛的常春藤花园享用早午餐之前,我们去车里做了一个快速的改变。It was delicious,虽然他们上午11点停止供应早餐,所以我们不得不从他们的菜单上做我们自己的早午餐菜。我在他们的蘑菇烤面包起子上加了荷包蛋,while Emily had the smoked salmon started with eggs.我觉得汤姆有点失望,因为他们没有一个完整的英国炒菜。

Overall,棒极了,非常有价值的比赛,气氛非常友好。Just don't underestimate the hills!!

    Speaking to people who did it most got a PB despite the big hill around the Great Orme (up to the cafe) I think it was more to do with the weather being perfect for 必威官网running!!
