running 32:52 [4] 9.22 km (3:34 / km) +34m 3:30 / km
shoes: inov8 f-lite white+black

Gun run 21km.

Aiming to start conservatively and go for it the last part if I had anything left. Started off well and was feeling good for the 1st 5km or so (hitting 3:30's relatively comfortably), then my stomach progressively started feeling worse and was struggling by 7km. Tried to push through it, but was not keen on another 12km while feeling rubbish, so pulled out just before the turn.

Pretty bleak about that. think its the first race Ive ever pulled out of.. Was also in good shape to take some significant time off my pb. Will have to find another half marathon to do before the end of the year.

Lionheart coming up this weekend though, so I guess its not too bad for the legs not to have a fast 21km in them.

running warm up/down 9:33 [2] 2.06 km (4:38 / km) +3m 4:36 / km
