My 4th HM of the year – not bad considering I was only going to run one.
Started at Ridlins sports ground and ran along the cycletracks around Stevenage. 2 loops, the second being slightly longer to incorporate the top lake and out onto the roads before heading back into Fairlands.
I really don’t like the ‘down and up’ of the cycle ways as they pitch under the roads. Thankfully some of the HM route was along my usual training grounds so knew how to focus on certain objects (mainly big strong trees) to get me up those hills.
Finished with half a lap of the springy sports track and into a super crowd of cheering supporters.
Got a medal and tshirt.
