Indeed a very respectable result. Well done.
Cheers Ifor, I'm glad to see my training has been good for something! I think I'm just not a road runner (which is probably no bad thing)
I was always relatively better on the road than off road over a short distance. E.g. I would get well beaten in a fell race by people I was level with on the road. Of course as the distance got longer things turned around as I would never do a long road race but was fairly good at a long hard fell race, the rougher the terrain the better.
