Aberdeen half marathon, first edition of the race. Tough course with a lot of hills from 8km onwards and is almost definitely long (seen data from 10-15 watches all the same as mine). Wanted to run around 70' without having to race too hard to test the legs before Jungfrau. Ran with Kyle and James Hoad for the first 5km then they seemed to slow down so I opened up a small gap and eased off slightly. After 7km James caught me up so I had to run a bit harder as we hit the hilly part and the cobbled roads in Old Aberdeen. I got a bit of a gap at 13km and held that to the end. It worked out fine as I felt good on the climbs so could keep the lead without going 100% effort. Didn't feel that great on the flat parts though, not got the same road running rhythm as I had early season but it'll come back. Calf was fine too but I'll have to monitor it. Great day out and very warm sunny conditions for Aberdeen!
